Save a Life

Alcohol Poisoning can kill. How does Alcohol Poisoning happen? Alcohol Poisoning happens when toxic quantities of alcohol are consumed. This often occurs from binge drinking.
 
What is Binge Drinking? Drinking large quantities of alcohol in a short period. So what does that look like? Typically this would be 4 drinks for a female in a 2 hour period or 5 drinks for a male in a 2 hour period but because of different percentages of alcohol in beverages, different weights of individuals, and the amount of food in a person’s body this is not exact, please click here for more info on a standard drink.
 
This practice can result in many negative outcomes, accidents, increased sexual assaults, and even death.
Know the signs:
  • Stumbling (unable to walk upright without assistance)
  • Mumbling (can’t start a conversation but can attempt a jumbled answer)
  • Unresponsive (unable to move/respond to stimuli)
  • Blueish/Cool to Touch (bluish tinged lips or hands, skin is cool signaling hypothermia setting in)
  • Vomiting (don’t wait for this to occur- not all people are able to vomit)

Alcohol Related Injuries Yearly (includes motor vehicle crashes)

17-24 Year Olds Admitted to Temple University Emergency Room For Alcohol Poisoning Yearly

Safe Drinking Tips

NOTE: Don’t Stall, Just Call never condones or supports underage drinking practices.

  • Know your limit & plan ahead.
  • Eat food before and while you drink.
  • Sip your drink (slow down).
  • Skip a drink now and then and substitute with non-alcoholic drink (another great tip is to have a glass of water with your drink, and sip on that between sips of your drink).
  • Beware of unfamiliar drinks.
  • Appoint a designated driver.
  • Respect the rights of individuals who do not wish to drink.
  • Keep track of how many drinks you are consuming.
  • Space your drinks.
  • Drink for quality vs. quantity.
  • Avoid drinking games.
  • Plan ahead for transportation — don’t drink and drive!
  • Never accept a drink from someone you don’t know.
  • When ordering a drink at the bar, watch the bartender make your drink so you can know how much alcohol you will be having.
  • Alcohol and sex do not mix — drunken sex is not consensual sex.
  • Careful what you combine, most drugs and alcohol do not mix well. Be sure to read all warning labels.
  • If you are pregnant, might be pregnant or attempting to become pregnant do not consume any type of alcoholic beverage.

* Our tips are directed solely at people of legal drinking age, ages 21 and above.
