Alcohol Safety Did you know? What is one drink? 12 Ounces of beer. 8 Ounces of malt liquor. 5 Ounces of wine. 1.5 Ounces or a shot of 80 proof liquor What are caffeinated alcoholic beverages (CABs)?

Premixed beverages that combine caffeine, alcohol and other stimulants. The caffeine in these drinks can mask the depressant effects of alcohol. Drinkers who consume alcohol mixed with energy drinks are 3 times more likely to binge drink. Because CABs may have higher alcohol content than beer, some states (e.g., Montana) have classified CABs as liquor, thereby limiting the locations where these beverages can be sold. Types of Drinking

Drinking in moderation is defined as having no more than 1 drink per day for women and no more than 2 drinks per day for men. Binge drinking is defined as a pattern of alcohol consumption that brings the blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level to 0.08% or more. For men, heavy drinking is typically defined as consuming an average of more than 2 drinks per day. For women, heavy drinking is typically defined as consuming an average of more than 1 drink per day. Alcoholism VS. Alcohol Abuse

Alcoholism A strong craving for alcohol. Continued use despite repeated physical, psychological, or interpersonal problems. The inability to limit drinking.

Alcohol Abuse Failure to fulfill major responsibilities at work, school, or home. Drinking in dangerous situations, such as drinking while driving or operating machinery. Continued drinking despite ongoing relationship problems that are caused or worsened by drinking. Long-term alcohol abuse can turn into alcohol dependence.
