Many of us may have heard this before. Whenever anyone tells us to “Be Safe” it is because something that we may be doing leaves us prone to harm. This is especially the case with alcohol and drugs where simply using them or being around people that are increases the risk of harm or danger. The state of intoxication that alcohol and drugs creates alters your mood, thoughts, and behavior. This makes it more likely for people to get into fights, have car accidents, and do or say things that may compromise their well-being. So, if alcohol or drugs are involved, remember to “Be Safe”.
Luckily, the threats to our safety that alcohol and drugs can create are not inevitable. To be safe remember that you can designate a driver, if you go out, go with a few friends, and take other precautions to stay safe.
