Some people may be considering using alcohol or other drugs as we move into level 2. If you took a break during lockdown you may have lower tolerance, meaning drugs will affect you more. This could mean there is a greater chance of feeling overwhelmed or experiencing an overdose. The drug market has also likely changed, with higher risk of adulterants and products not being what you thought they were.

Start slow by using a smaller amount than normal and waiting for the full effect (at least an hour for most substances) before using any more. Keep track of who you meet and keep good hygiene by washing your hands regularly and not sharing equipment.  

If you choose to use alcohol or other drugs while in in alert level 2, think about these things to reduce the impact it may have on yourself or others.
