WHAT DOES DRINKING RESPONSIBLY MEAN?

Moderate drinking tied to meal times in a social atmosphere is quite traditional throughout Europe. This type of consumption, moderate, conscious, and responsible, is therefore quite compatible with people's personal and social life and indeed, in some cases, it may even improve the quality of their life.

Drinking without control, drinking at a wrong time and place and for the wrong reasons means drinking in a non-responsible way. Irresponsible use of alcohol can cause serious dangers to your health and safety and the society you live in. In some situations it's better not to drink at all. There are categories of people (children, teenagers, people who take certain medications, former alcoholics) in specific situations (work, driving) and life stages (pregnancy) in which the consumption of alcohol, although moderate, may still represent a danger.

In particular, the consumption of alcohol makes reaction times longer, reduces visual sharpness and can hinder coordination. When drinking alcohol, driving becomes increasingly inaccurate and you will be unable to deal with the unexpected. If you are pregnant, alcohol can go through the placenta and reach the fetus in a slightly less concentration than that present in the mothers system.

Alcohol ingested in large doses and for a long time alters the metabolism, affects blood pressure, affects the heart rhythm and can cause severe forms of poisoning, as well as liver damage such as cirrhosis, heart and nerve diseases and, ultimately, certain types of cancer.

It's very important to be aware of these dangers so that when you find yourself in these situations you can behave in an appropriate way in terms of the consumption of alcoholic beverages.
