Beer Goggles help you see the dangers of drink

First published in News by

PATIENTS will try on real-life beer goggles at an alcohol awareness event.

The glasses mimic the effects of alcohol on your vision and balance.

Visitors at Colchester General Hospital will get to try them on for Alcohol Awareness Week on Thursday.

The event takes place between 10am and 4pm on a stand outside Senses restaurant in the main hospital in Turner Road.

The NHS recommends that men should not exceed 3-4 units a day on a regular basis, and women should not exceed 2-3 units a day on a regular basis.

Joe stopped at his favourite watering hole after a hard day's work to relax. He noticed a man next to him order a shot and a beer. The man drank the shot, chased it with the beer and then looked into his shirt pocket. This continued several times before Joe's curiosity got the best of him.
He leaned over to the guy and said, "Excuse me, I couldn't help but notice your little ritual. Why in the world do you look into your shirt pocket every time you drink your shot and beer?"
The man replied, "There's a picture of my wife in there, and when she starts lookin' good, I'm headin' home!"
