It’s common for men to engage in impulsive behaviours, that’s acting quickly without thinking through the consequences.

Impulsive or risky adult behaviours might include:

  • Driving too fast or dangerous driving
  • Using substances to excess
  • Having unprotected sex
  • Spending money you don’t have
  • Making unsolicited or inappropriate sexual remarks or behaviours
  • Getting into physical fights.

Each of these can have serious consequences for you and those around you. They may result in complaints from others, incidents at work, legal issues, physical or emotional to others and harm to yourself. They can also negatively impact your relationships with your partner, family, friends or colleagues.
