So, ladies, if you aren’t careful at a party and get carried away when inebriated, you might notice your pictures on social media when you regain your senses.
We’re all aware of the consequences of excessive drinking. Even if it’s just to ourselves, we’ve all made the mistake of having one drink too many more times than we’d want to confess. The prospect of a hangover the next day is often enough to motivate us to limit our alcohol consumption, but there are other strategies that can help us be responsible drinkers while still having a good time at every party.
Just because you’re keeping track of how much you’re drinking and spending the evening like a responsible adult doesn’t mean the party will be dull. Get out of there if the party necessitates you to drink in order to enjoy it: it’s not a party you should be attending in the first place. It will not be worth the horrible hangover that will ruin the next day. Drinking responsibly so that you don’t get dizzy, slur your speech, or disgrace yourself shouldn’t imply that the party isn’t fun.
Drinking responsibly is actually rather straightforward, but it necessitates a great amount of self-control and restraint. Unfortunately, after only one drink, our ability to exercise restraint and self-control deteriorates considerably, and this trend continues with each subsequent drink. However, doing everything you can to remember to remain hydrated, avoid mixing types of alcohol, eat before you start drinking, know your limits, and recognize the symptoms that you need to stop can help ensure that you don’t humiliate yourself and that you suffer a lot less the next morning.
Inquire as to what you’re drinking.
If you’re drinking a cocktail and don’t know what’s in it, inquire. You don’t want to swallow a couple of sweet, wonderful cocktails in 15 minutes just to realize how strong they were and that they’re ready to put you out for the night. Make sure you always know how much alcohol is in your drink.
Caffeine should be avoided.
Caffeine and alcohol should not be mixed. Even if you’re tired and the alcohol has made you sleepier, a cup of coffee or an energy drink may seem like a good idea, but it’s not. The coffee and alcohol will combine in a tremendous, overpowering surge of energy that will leave you uneasy and wobbly before collapsing to a massive low.
Sugar and alcohol should not be mixed.
The mix of sugar and alcohol is fatal. Avoid too sugary cocktails since the sugar will get to your head just as fast as the booze. You’ll be on a huge high, but you’ll quickly lose all of your energy. The combination of sugar and alcohol will make the next morning terrible, since you’ll have a real hangover, as well as a sugar hangover.
Drinks should not be mixed.
Make a drink choice for the evening and stick to it. Drinking various sorts of alcohol causes your body to struggle, so try to avoid it. It’s not a smart idea to start with a gin and tonic, then wine, then tequila shots.
Something to eat
Make sure you eat something before going to the party. This is especially critical if you are unsure whether or not there will be food available. Having some carbohydrates and protein in your stomach will aid in the absorption of the alcohol and reduce the rate at which it affects you.
