Drinking alcohol

Whether you are counting down the days to your 18th birthday and being able to buy your first legal drink, or you are in your early twenties trying to juggle nights out whilst safely managing Type 1 diabetes, this SEREN Connect booklet can help.

Drinking alcohol has an effect on everyone and all young people need to ensure they stay safe. Taking the time to understand your body, and how it is affected by alcohol can help you reduce the risks.

Although many young people drink alcohol, many choose not to drink at all. You should never feel pressured to drink just to fit in.

If you haven’t drunk any alcohol before, it is best to start slowly and learn how it affects you.
