Respect alcohol, respect yourself.

For most adults, it's fine to enjoy a drink. At the same time, we all need to look after our health and wellbeing. This is where you can find out more about how to do both.

The alcohol in your drink is absorbed into your body through the stomach and small intestine. Food slows down the rate of absorption - that's why alcohol affects you more quickly on an empty stomach.
