2:10pm Monday 30th December 2013 in News
HEALTH chiefs have urged New Year’s Eve revellers to go easy on the alcohol.
Amanda Thornton, clinical director for the adult community network at Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust, said: “Keeping an eye on how much you’re drinking and ensuring you are safe will ensure you see in the New Year with a night to remember for the right reasons.
“Pouring your own drinks at home and drinking wine with a meal can also be misleading and lead to you drinking a lot more than you think.
“When alcohol is flowing inhibitions can be lowered which can result in you acting in a way that you wouldn’t normally or worse still, ending up in dangerous situations.
“It’s advisable to leave your car at home if you’re planning to have a drink as even one drink can push you over the recommended limit.”
