Drinking and Keeping to your limits!!07:00:00
It's not the whole being drunk thing that frightens me! It's the getting sick, the wasting of other people's time who are trying to help you and of course the reminders of it the next day, be it by word of mouth or the dreaded social media, the likes of "Snapchat" mainly. It can be embarrassing. That is why I do like to try and limit myself and be sensible.
I tried to drink sensibly on "Black Monday" also. I had a litre bottle, with a mixture of 750 ml of 7up free (I don't need the sugar or the calories) and the harmful substance which is known as Vodka. I thought that would be fine! There was far more fizzy stuff than vodka sure. However, I was wrong!
I went to "Prinks" which is a combination of the words "pre" and "drinks" at my friends' house. Most students pre-drink as it is better financially. Drinks in the night clubs can be awful costly and can conjure up a bit of debt! The cheaper option is to drink beforehand.
At "Prinks" we played a drinking game kings which is designed to get alcohol into your system rather quickly. One of my friends Robert arrived slightly later. I vaguely remember him saying "I need to catch up", meaning that he needed to consume what he had before we left or meaning that he had to catch up on me who was about to feel like dying. Did he really want that?
What came next was a rather violent scene of me vomiting into a plastic bag and going from that to resting my head on the soft surface of the couch I was sitting on, just shutting my eyes for a moment and then tilting my head back towards the bag.
The realisation that you've just puked in one of your friend's houses from pure drunkness, doesn't really hit you until the next morning, when you're trying to rewind the tape of your memory and remember what the hell happened. You see story after story on Snapchat of people who also went out having fun and feeling the exact opposite to yourself who at this stage regrets a lot of your behaviour.
Personally, being drunk comes so suddenly, although the signs were apparent. My hand eye coordination had come to a hault midway through kings. I could have just stopped then, but I wasn't in the most sober state then. Drunk minds like to think they are sober and proceed to the task at hand. You know you've had enough fun when your friends gather and decide to take you home. Luckily these friends weren't going out and I hadn't spoiled their night completely.
This causes a lot of questions. How do you limit yourself and when is enough enough? I have made several mistakes in the past with alcohol and to this day I haven't come up with a proper solution to it. Well, I guess wine is a better option than vodka. I was fine the last time I had wine and mixed it!
If anyone reading, sensibly limits themselves and succeeds with that I would really be interested to hear how you manage it. Inform me in the comments or by any of the social media I have left in the sidebar. I am a very petite girl with a very low tolerance to alcohol. I don't like Chinese food either, maybe it's my own stomach that is my enemy. On the bright side, I arrived home in tact and had the same amount of money I had that afternoon!
Has anybody had very bad experiences with Alcohol?
Have you found a solution to your Alcohol derived problems?
Let me know in the comments.
Thank you guys for reading and as always I will see you later. :)
