Alcohol impairs your judgment and lowers your inhibitions, and parties and crowd atmospheres provide more opportunities and cover for unwanted touching or sexual advances.
For more info, go to the UConn Sexual Violence, Domestic Violence and Stalking Awareness Page:
If you’ve invited people you don’t know to your home, you and your guests may be more susceptible to theft. Drunk people can be easy targets, and you might not notice that your stuff is missing until the next day when the thief is long gone.
Crowds at large parties can be dangerous for intoxicated people, especially in enclosed spaces. There is a higher risk of being trampled or assaulted, whether intentionally or not. Apartment balconies can become crowded, increasing the risk for intoxicated people to fall. Standing on roofs or high decks is especially dangerous for drunk people. Additionally, when your Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) rises to a certain level (likely between 0.15 and 0.25), you may not be able to feel pain if you are injured.
