Safe alcohol consumption

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) -

It is not too soon to start preparing for the holiday. Everyone should make plans to have a healthy holiday.

Dr. Kelly McDonald is warning her patients to be responsible with their alcohol consumption during the holidays.

There is no amount that can be considered "safe" for driving.

It is important for health reasons to limit alcohol consumption to less than two drinks per day for women and less than three drinks per day for men.

If you observe a friend or acquaintance who is unable to speak, formulate thoughts, is excessively sedated and difficult to arouse, they should be taken for medical evaluation to prevent further complications.
