Never go swimming while intoxicated
Drinking and swimming never mix. Just like driving, operating machinery and other activities that are dangerous when you’re intoxicated, swimming when you are impaired can be deadly. Drinking dulls your senses, slows your reaction time, impairs your judgment and generally makes it much more dangerous in and around water.
This is common sense, right?
So it should be easy to avoid mixing swimming and intoxicating substances. Except swimming is often an activity people enjoy at parties or boat outings and other events where alcohol is also common.
This makes it especially important to remember at the beach or at the pool or on a boat, that you should know your limits. Avoid intoxicants if you want to get in the water, or avoid the water if you have been indulging.
