Instead of drinking or doing drugs to manage your mood temporarily, try exercise or meditation to tackle stress and anxiety.
Just listening can be awesome support. Let your friends know you’re always there. You can make a difference.
Drugs can be risky, always plan what and how much you are taking. Let someone know what your plan is.
A fraction too much can make for a scary experience. Avoid overdose or dangerous situations by understanding safe levels of use.
Never use drugs alone. And if using drugs while out or partying stay close to your friends and don't be afraid to ask for help.
You never quite know how drugs will react with each other. Mixing drugs can hugely increase the risk you're taking.
Dehydration and overheating are BIG dangers with substance use. Also avoid drinking to much by sipping and not sculling.
Whatever you do, always make sure all the tools you use are hygienic to minimise the high risk of infections and disease.
Dance, music, games, art; do things that take the focus away from drugs and drinking
