Plan your journey home before your night out.

The safest option is to not drink at all and there are no shortcuts for sobering up. A strict drink drive limit is in place.

On average, it takes about one hour for your body to break down one unit of alcohol. Information on units of alcohol can be found on the NHS website. However, this can vary, depending on: Your weight, whether you're male or female, your age, how quickly or slowly your body turns food into energy (your metabolism), how much food you have eaten, the type and strength of the alcohol, and whether you're taking medication and, if so, what type.
