Be aware of how alcohol affects you as an individual.
If you know you will be drinking alcohol, make sure you plan ahead.
If you are partying with a group of friends, agree that one of the group will not drink, and will be responsible for driving and looking out for the group generally. Of course, each person is ultimately responsible for his or her own behaviour. Make sure you can call a member of your family or a friend if you need help.
