Myth: A cold shower or a cup of black coffee will make you sober
Reality: 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!
Myth: Switching between beer, wine and liquor will make you more drunk than if you stick to one type of alcohol
Reality: 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.
Myth: Everybody’s reaction to alcohol is the same
Reality: 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…
Myth: Beer or wine coolers will not get you drunk as fast as drinking hard liquor
Reality: 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.
Myth: All you get from drinking too much alcohol is a hangover
Reality: 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!
Myth: Drugs are a much bigger problem than alcohol
Reality: There are 18 million problem drinkers in the US; it's estimated that each one affects 4 other people…you do the math.
Myth: Problem drinkers only hurt themselves
Reality: 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!
