Stay safe (and alive) on New Year's Eve
We are days away from New Year's Eve -- an annual celebration of the year that has passed and a toast to the year ahead. It's a night to dress up, gather with friends, count down to midnight and dance the night away.
But, as we all know, there's a dark side to NYE: Over-indulgence that can lead to drunk driving, hangovers, alcohol poisoning, bad decision-making, law breaking, injury or assault.
What can you do to stay safe on New Year's Eve? How do you avoid the temptation of an open bar? How much is too much? Are there alternatives to the bar scene? What do you do if your DD gets wasted? (And is it really a good idea to wear those killer heels?)
Starting at 1 p.m. Thursday, I will be online to answer all of your questions about New Year's Eve safety. I will be joined by Thomas Workman, an associate professor at Baylor College of Medicine who helps campus communities organize to prevent substance abuse. (And, fun fact, Tom worked at the University of Nebraska back when I was a student there.)
