12.13.22 – Holiday Tips/ Wings of Sobriety/ Available Resources

Tuesday, December 13, 2022

The holiday season is in full swing. So too are the celebrations which usually include alcohol. If you are hosting a holiday gathering, here are some tips you might want to keep in mind.

Offer a variety of alcohol-free drinks—water, juices, sparkling sodas. Alcohol-free drinks help counteract the dehydrating effects of alcohol. Also, the other fluids may slow the rate of alcohol absorption into the body and reduce the peak alcohol concentration in the blood. They also provide your guests with alternatives to alcohol.

Provide a variety of healthy foods and snacks. Food can slow the absorption of alcohol and reduce the peak level of alcohol in the body by about one-third. Food can also minimize stomach irritation and gastrointestinal distress the following day.

Help your guests get home safely—use designated drivers and taxis. Anyone getting behind the wheel of a car should not have ingested any alcohol.

If you are hosting multiple age groups, understand and support the underage drinking laws in your home.

Have a safe holiday season!
