Watch your alcoholic intake!

Not all alcoholic beverages contain the same amount of alcohol levels.
Always pay attention to the alcohol content and monitor dosage [especially if temperatures are above 20 degrees]

Avoid mixing different alcoholic drinks, and beware of cocktails [sugar hides the alcoholic content].
Drink water … we all say we do, but do we really drink enough?


Don’t let the binge ruin the game. Know when to stop.


for every action is an equal and opposite reaction

Mixing tobacco? Seriously? Think twice! Nicotine increases your risks of dependence and other health related risks.  It also disrupts your canna-experience.

Are you on an empty stomach? Reduce risks, keep hydrated, eat fruit and other nutritious food. Visit the food court to sample some of the best soulful cuisine on the island.

Drinking alcohol? Pay extra attention, it could get extra risky!
