A MOOD-ALTERING DRUG
Written by Third Year students
Alcohol is a mood-altering drug. It changes how we feel. It
may be used to let us express feelings, mask feelings or avoid feelings.
The more you drink, the greater the risk.
Drinking too much can damage your health and cause problems with work,
family and friends.
Protect yourself - keep a count of how many units of alcohol your drink
Spread drinking over the week. Women can generally drink 14 units,
and men can drink up to 21 units without harming their health.
