Be aware that the recommended guidelines for men are 17 standard drinks and 11 standard drinks for women spread out over the course of a week, with at least two to three alcohol-free days.
So, we’re not saying say ‘no’, we’re saying keeping alcohol in moderation might actually be better for your social life, your workload at college and your overall physical and mental health.
Drugs at college
You may also come across drugs while you’re at college in a way that you haven’t before and be curious.
It can seem like entire groups of friends or people you know look like they base their social life around drink or drugs every weekend while managing to keep up with their college work and have a great time.
Looks can be deceptive, and while it can appear that way from the outside, you may not notice those who aren’t able to manage it all and gradually drop off the scene as it all gets on top of them.
