The end of the year is upon us and we’ll all soon be counting down the end of 2008 and the beginning of 2009. That means, for many of us, we’ll be popping open the bubbly to celebrate the occasion. I’ve found that for a lot of people, New Year’s Eve has become less about reflecting upon the past year and what’s to come in the new year and all about getting as drunk as humanly possible. Getting ridiculously drunk is not only unladylike, it can be rude, annoying and unsightly.
A lady partakes in the festivities but knows when to stop. She knows when she’s reached her limit and when to say “no.” I’m not saying you shouldn’t drink – in fact it’s ok to get a bit tipsy. You just don’t want to get to the point where you are screaming, crying or vomiting or a combination of all three – that’s never a good look. A lady knows how much booze she can handle and she handles it with class. Read the rest of the story for some advice on handling your liquor.
The following tips may help you out:
Never drink on an empty stomach unless you want to get on the road to quick, extreme drunkeness. Always make sure you have something to eat before a night on the town.
Do you really need to do four consecutive tequila shots? Spread your drinks out a little bit so that your body has time to process the alcohol throughout the night.
Avoid a Hangover
After a night of drinking I always try to eat something before I go to bed. I finish it all off with 2 pain relievers (like Advil or Tylenol) and a big glass of water. I also make sure to keep some water by my bedside so I can hydrate myself if I wake up thirsty.
If you keep these tips in mind you won’t get sloppy drunk and you’ll be a lady among girls. Cheers! Salute! Cin Cin! Wishing you love, health and happiness in 2009!
