Alcohol on holiday for many is another form of tourism with consequences for them, their families and friends.
The World Health Organization WHO, addressing politicians and governments around the world, proposed a strategy focused on 10 aspects with the aim of reducing alcohol consumption
During parties, many people associate having fun and having a good time with drinking alcohol. On many occasions we hear people “drink until we can’t anymore”, being a real problem. In Spain, these excesses of alcohol abound on vacation in many tourist areas. Among the best known are Magaluf, Ibiza, but also areas such as Barcelona, Alicante or Malaga do not escape these disturbances.
6 TIPS RELATED TO ALCOHOL ON HOLIDAY
- Before consuming alcohol, we recommend increasing your intake of liquids, water or soft drinks, and having eaten properly.
- Limit the amount of alcohol you drink, try to drink more slowly, and if you drink, do so responsibly
- Avoid mixing alcohol with other stimulant substances
- Avoid driving
- When you enjoy your summer vacation, drink plenty of water if you are exposed to the sun and even more so if you are going to consume alcohol.
- People who drink in one sitting or drink too much too fast on one occasion are at particular risk of: serious accidents, unprotected sex and becoming more violent.
Withdrawal symptoms that suggest the need for professional support:
- Nausea or vomiting in the morning.

Undoubtedly, the quantities in the consumption are those that mark the problems with alcohol. The United Kingdom’s National Health Service (NHS) warns of the risks of drinking too much and the repercussions depending on the amounts consumed.
