Drinking alcohol whether in an event or at home can be an enjoyable part of life for some people. It is a part of many people's lives and may have a place in cultural norms and family traditions.

On special occasions every now and then, it's okay to have 1 extra drink.
Additionally, if you choose to drink, keep the quantity of alcohol you drink within the recommended limits. Drinking more than expected should only happen once in a while, not every day.
Always keep in mind that a safe amount of alcohol for one person may be too much for you. Because of factors such as age, sex, weight, and medical history, alcohol can affect people differently. If you're an adult who is underweight, younger than 25 or older than 65, or isn't used to drinking, you need to be very careful about how much alcohol you drink to save your organs.
Very important advice, never drink and drive and should never get in a vehicle with a driver who has been drinking or drunk. Try to make alternative plans in such circumstances so as to get home safely. If trying to get pregnant, pregnant or nursing a baby, know that alcohol can harm the developing baby, so avoid it completely
