PARTY WITH A PLAN®
Alcohol education has been replaying the same message for the past 40 years. The two main messages are “Just say no” or “Be Responsible.” But what does that mean? How do you know what responsible is? It’s too subjective. Responsible for one person is not responsible for another. Throughout history society has been saying that “moderate” alcohol use is ok, but overuse is not ok. But what is overuse? How do you determine if you’re a “moderate” drinker or not?
There aren’t many people who carry around a breathalyzer with them to measure their BAC throughout the night. And even if they did, BAC changes over time so it’s not always accurate. It’s time we had a new message, a real message. One that not only makes sense, but works! Finally that message is here. “Party with a Plan” using the “Know the Code 0-1-2-3” guideline gives people who choose to drink the tools they need to use alcohol in a safe and low risk manner.
“Party with a Plan” alcohol education risk reduction program using the Know the Code 0-1-2-3® guideline will revolutionize the way people look at the consumption of alcohol. Those who choose to drink will have guidelines that are simple to follow. They will know if they are low risk or high risk with their drinking choices or not. This program draws a clear line in the sand that shows if a person is low risk or high risk. This method is non-threatening, sensible, honest, and logical. Even non- drinkers appreciate the message!
KNOW THE CODE 0-1-2-3®
Sometimes zero IS your best option. Listen to your instinct!
No more than one drink per hour (12 oz. beer, 5oz. wine, or 1 oz. shot).
Limit your drinking to no more than two times per week.
No more than three drinks in one day.
Who are you going out with? Who are you meeting later on?
What are you planning to do? Do you have the details in mind before you leave your room?
Where are you going? Is it random or do you have a plan? Do others know the location in case they need to reach you?
If you’re planning to drink, do you know your limit? The majority of people who get in trouble with alcohol go over their limit.
Why are you drinking? Are you blowing off steam, looking to relax, or drinking to escape? Knowing why you’re drinking can help you avoid trouble and additional problems.
How are you getting home? Know this before you go out! Is your driver planning to drink? If so, make sure you have an alternate ride home.
