Personal Breathalyzer

If you have a friend or relative leaving home for college, a breathalyzer from makes a great going-away present. It is practical and affordable, and encourages responsible drinking. By having this simple tool on hand, new drinkers can avoid making mistakes that can endanger themselves or others.

Every year, a significant number of college freshmen die in alcohol-related accidents. Fraternity and sorority rush weeks, birthdays, and even trips home can turn deadly when people don't know how to handle alcohol. College is an environment where many young adults are exposed to alcohol for the first time, which can make it hard to judge how much to drink and what to do while drunk.

When you see someone who has been drinking, you usually have to rely on your senses to determine whether they are intoxicated. Slurred speech, uncoordinated movements, and alcohol-laced breath are often the surest hallmarks of intoxication, but these clues require context--and can easily be masked. Thankfully, nothing can fool a breathalyzer.

Having a breathalyzer on hand will give your loved one the advantage of information. Alcohol affects people differently, but measuring BAC (blood alcohol content) is an objective way to tell just how much alcohol is reaching the brain. Knowing this can help someone decide when to stop drinking--and also when it's safe to drive home.

What's more, this gift shows that you place value on drinking responsibly. Being able to know your limits is important and is often an important lesson for first-time drinkers. Even those unfamiliar with the sensation of being intoxicated will be able to read their breathalyzers and make the right decisions. To find out more about our free shipping visit today.
