True or False

 – The Real Deal!

• A cold shower or a cup of black coffee will make you sober

~ Nope! Time is the ONLY thing that will sober you up. Cold showers make a cold, wet drunk…add coffee and you have a cold, wet and wide awake drunk!


• Switching between beer, wine and liquor will make you more drunk than if you stick to one type of alcohol

~ Not even! Alcohol is alcohol; the brand, flavor and price have nothing to do with it. It’s all about your BAC – the percentage of alcohol in your blood.


• Alcohol gives you energy

~ ZZZzzzzz No way! It’s actually a depressant, slowing down your thinking abilities, speaking abilities, etc.


• Everybody’s reaction to alcohol is the same

~ Are you serious?! There are many things that factor into a person’s reaction to alcohol: weight, time of day, if your stomach is empty or full…


• Beer or wine coolers will not get you drunk as fast as drinking hard liquor

~ Same as above.  Alcohol is alcohol; the brand, flavor and price have nothing to do with it. It’s all about your BAC – the percentage of alcohol in your blood.


• All you get from drinking too much alcohol is a hangover

~ People who drink too much alcohol too fast are at high risk of dying from alcohol poisoning. A hangover is the least of your worries!


• Drugs are a much bigger problem than alcohol

~ In the US, 17,000 + people die annually from alcohol related car crashes. Alcohol kills more of our youth than cocaine, heroin and all other illegal drugs combined!


• Problem drinkers only hurt themselves

~ There are 18 million problem drinkers in the US; it’s estimated that each one affects 4 other people…you do the math.
