How to enjoy your wine and still be safe

12 May 2016, 08:03 Lauren Burley Copley

It's been a long, stressful day at the office, and you're looking forward to relaxing at home with a glass of wine or a good old "Klippies and Coke".

While the occasional drink after work may help you cope with stress, having alcohol on a daily basis may not be good for your health in the long run.

Here are a few tips that will make that glass of red wine a lot safer: • Don’t gulp – sip your drink slowly. 

• Pace yourself – limit consumption to one drink per hour.

• Stick to beer, wine, spirits or cider instead of tequila or vodka shots, which are high in alcohol and easy to swig back too fast.

• Avoid drinking games, or put on the brakes – they’re likely to promote rapid drinking.

• Alternate alcoholic drinks with non-boozy drinks/water and stay well hydrated.

• Eat before drinking and carry on munching while drinking. Food (especially high protein foods like cheese, meat, fish and peanuts) slows down the absorption rate of alcohol. 

• Don’t drink when you’re sleep-deprived or unwell; it will take less alcohol to get you smashed or even black out.

• Never mix alcohol with any other drugs/medications as they may increase the effects of alcohol.

• Plan ahead! Know your drink limit and stick to it; have a sober designated driver if you’re going out in a group; stay over; or call a taxi to take you home after partying up a storm.
