Before you go to the party
Agree with a friend at the start of the night that you’ll check in with each other during the party to see how you’re both travelling. If you look out for each other, neither of you will fall behind.
If there’s even a small chance you might have sex with someone, have the right protection with you (such as a condom or dental dam).
Make sure the protection you have is in date and has been stored properly.
How to look after a drunk friend
