Think you know how many standard drinks are in common glasses? Can you list the street names of drugs affecting NSW right now? Do you know who to call when alcohol and other drugs (AOD) issues arise?

Your Room is a place where you can test your drug and alcohol knowledge in an interactive and fun environment. Users can test their knowledge of AoD, learn how many standard drinks are in common glasses and assess whether their drinking habits are putting them at risk.

The Your Room website has been verified and developed in consultation with NSW clinical experts and is a joint initiative by NSW Health and St Vincent’s Alcohol and Drug Information Service (ADIS). As well as acting as a hub of drug and alcohol information, Your Room provides details of helplines and support services.

Take the Your Room alcohol risk assessment here and visit the Your Room Getting Help page today for more information and support.

Do you want a healthier lifestyle?

Alcohol consumption is a huge contributor to weight gain and has damaging effects on your health. Like sugar, alcohol has ‘empty kilojoules’ because it contains few nutrients for the body to use. Also when you drink alcohol, you become less aware of the food you are eating and can easily overeat.
