Health Tip: Drink Responsibly

(HealthDay News) -- Responsible drinking is a surefire way to prevent alcohol abuse and alcohol poisoning, a dangerous complication of drinking too much.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests:

  • Don't over-drink or binge drink.
  • Don't mix alcohol with energy drinks. The caffeine in energy drinks may mask the effects of alcohol and lead to drinking too much.
  • Avoid drinks with an unknown amount of alcohol.
  • If you see anyone with signs of alcohol abuse, seek immediate help.
  • Seek help if you think you have a drinking problem.
