|Why is it stupid?|
|Why do we do it?|
Why spoil a perfectly good night by drinking too much and feeling too sick to keep partying? Not only will you spoil the night for yourself, but you’ll probably spoil it for your mates who end up looking after you. There’s nothing worse than the responsibility of having to look after someone who’s throwing up on your best pair of shoes, all because they didn’t know their limits!
It can totally wreck your weekend- if you have a really hard Friday or Saturday night then most likely you’re going to want to spend the next day lying in bed and feeling sorry for yourself instead of getting out there and enjoying your day off.
It can seriously hurt your wallet- drinking is expensive!! Imagine the things you could buy with the money you drank away!
It can make you look stupid in front of your friends or that someone you might be trying to impress.
You could say things that you didn’t mean (or wouldn’t say because you knew they would hurt someone’s feelings)
Binge drinking can make you seriously ill. Every week people end up in the hospital getting their stomachs pumped.
Heavy alcohol consumption can have really bad effects on your health. It can permanently damage organs, destroy your fitness levels, and alcohol poisoning can cause key parts of your brain to shut down- which can kill you.
If your normal inhibitions are down then you may be heading into shady waters… What happens if you’re at a party and your mates leave without you? How are you going to be able to deal with a bad situation (like one of your friends having an accident) if you can’t even stand up straight?
