Why Alcohol and Swimming Don't Mix
Why Alcohol and Swimming Don't Mix: Impaired mental functioning isn't the only major risk! Alcohol also has specific physical affects that can compromise your swimming abilities.
- Impairs your vision and depth perception.
- Makes you move more slowly.
- Makes it harder for you to stay warm in the water.
No matter how strong a swimmer you are, don't bring alcohol into the mix. It's simply not worth the risks -- to your health or your diet.
