"Wellness" is about increasing healthy habits and reducing unhealthy ones. Many people say they use alcohol or other drugs to "feel good." Let's consider some reasons we may have for drinking, and for not drinking:
Making healthy choices for feeling good means learning to get what what is healthy for us, and avoiding the unhealthy things we don't want. If your choices include drinking alcohol, think about drinking safely to avoid any negative consequences.
One common guideline is to limit yourself to one drink a hour, because that is the average rate at which our bodies absorb alcohol. However, people who weigh less or are unaccustomed to drinking are more likely to be noticeably impaired even when drinking at this rate. When we start to feel lightheaded, dizzy, or less coordinated, we are already impaired and at risk of injuring ourselves or others.
Here are some important reasons not to drink:
you don't want to
you're taking other drugs and medications
you'll be driving, boating, or using other machinery
you're a recovering alcoholic
