Alcohol and other drugs
Drugs are chemicals that change the way your body or brain functions. They come in many forms and can have different effects.
If you choose to drink alcohol, know your limit. There is no set limit that is safe for everyone. You need to be aware there are risks involved. Risks can be short-term, such as vomiting, memory loss or a hangover the next day. Long-term effects include dependence and damage to internal organs.
