Alcohol

Drinking too much alcohol can have a direct impact on your health. This may be happening even if you currently feel quite well. You may have some symptoms caused by drinking but perhaps haven't stopped to think about it.

Over time, drinking too much alcohol can increase your risk of other health problems such as cancers, liver cirrhosis, high blood pressure and dementia.

Drinking too much whilst pregnant can also affect your baby's health.

Alcohol also has other undesirable effects like sexual problems and weight gain.

Drugs

It is important to know how drugs can affect you and what the risks are if you take them.

You can never tell how strong they are or what is in them.

An accidental overdose could lead to unconsciousness or even death.

Mixing different drugs, or mixing drugs with alcohol, can be very dangerous.

Smoking

Stopping smoking is one of the most important things you can do to improve your health and research shows that you are 4 times more likely to succeed with support and stop smoking medication.

Children from a smoke free home are less likely to have persistent coughs, middle ear infections and be admitted to hospital with exacerbations of asthma and chest infections.
