If you’re drinking, make it as logical as possible. It’s not going to ruin the fun, but instead, it’s going to make it better and much safer. This is the most important of all the rules of drinking! Always know your limits. If you want to keep the good stories good – without the classic “can you please come and get me out of jail” endings – always drink in a responsible manner. This can eliminate accidents, fights, annoying drunk friends (which by the way, if you don’t have that friend, that means it’s you!), and other mistakes.
You found yourself several drinking buddies, you had a greasy dinner, and you forget ‘drink responsibly’ advice by gulping five drinks in less than ten seconds. You might not have this in mind, but the cause of being too drunk might not be drinking too much but instead drinking too fast. Take your time, enjoy the cocktail, and sip slowly. This can be achieved easily if you have something to chew on. Take it slow!
If you’re emotional, don’t drink! Been through a hard time this week, your relationship is over, a beloved one passed away, or you just got fired; all of these are really bad things to happen. But, they are also really bad reasons to drink. Before drinking, pick yourself up, clean up the dust of your jeans, and keep going. Life is not easy mate, but for sure, drinking is not a solution. Once everything is in order, have yourself a glass – or twenty – to celebrate what you survived. That’s what booze is for!
It is hard to detach your emotions from something like drinking, because it can be an escape for many people. Sometimes we celebrate and drink because of that, but a mixture of sadness and alcoholic consumption could be disastrous.
Sometimes, drinking gives us the ability to forget about us being mere mortals. And we think we’re indestructible daredevil beings! But the truth is we couldn’t be more vulnerable than when we’re drunk! That’s why you need to stay away from danger; you’re not part of the Jackass crew!
And last but not least, never mix several types of spirits/liquors. Also, avoid sweet alcohol and cocktails, because those are the one that will keep you drinking without noticing you stopped feeling your legs a while ago. Mixing drinks takes you to wonderland without a return ticket. You might wake up at home after a party, even if you mix drinks. However, the chances of waking up on a beach with a bunch of unknown people who call you a weird and recently earned nickname are heightened when you mix booze! Plus, the hangover will be out of this world.
Have fun responsibly and stay out as long as possible. You only live once!
