5 Tips to Responsible drinking during the FIFA World Cup Brasil 2014

Enjoy Responsibly! Let the FIFA World Cup Brasil 2014 begin! 

Hmm, but how can I be a responsible drinker? 

TIP 1: Keep an eye on what you’re drinking. Remember that spirits often have high alcohol content. Make sure you leave enough time between shots to feel the effects of the first one before shooting the next one. Also, drink water between your drinks to help you keep hydrated.

TIP 2:Don’t drink and drive. This one kind of sells itself. If you have to drive anywhere, don’t drink more alcohol than is recommended if you’re driving. Alcohol is a depressant drug which slows down your reaction speed, which means if you need to think and act fast, you probably won’t be able to.

TIP 3: If you’re going out for a big night, work out amongst your group of friends who’s going to be the one that drives home. In The Netherlands we call this amigo “BOB”. To be or not to be BOB. If no one wants to be the “BOB” that night, make sure you bring enough money for a taxi.

TIP 4: Avoid mixing alcohol and other drugs. The impact of mixing alcohol and other drugs (whether medication or recreational) is pretty serious. You cannot anticipate the effect it will have on your behavior and your body’s reaction.

TIP5: The basic thing to remember around responsible drinking is common sense.
