Safer drinking practices

Post by annemary100 » Wed Jun 10, 2009 11:40 am

* Drink extra H2O (before, during and after)
* Alternate alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks
* Limit the total number of drinks
* Consume no more than 1 drink per hour
* Sip rather than gulp
* Choose a designated driver (before drinking)
* Eat before drinking
* Don’t accept drinks from strangers
* Make plans to show up and leave with the same group
* Stop drinking 1–2 hours before going home
* Pour your own drink
* Don’t leave your drink unattended

Heh, looking at your list I just realized that I failed to do pretty much everything mentioned in it when I was boozing last night. A kind of accomplishment, must be!

No. You need to get 100% completion. You're probably at about 60%.

I recommend taking the week off and grinding, I hear you get good loot.
no

These questions sound like something from a silly health class. Real simple; read your dang book.

I'll just have a bottle of extra water always I guess.

been wasted before, not fun.

It's possible to have a great time getting drunk. You just have to know your limit and not exceed it.
Generally speaking, the more people talk about "being saved," the further away they actually are from true salvation.

I believe you Europeans drink much more than we do. European nations at least tend to have more liberal drinking laws. Makes me want to move to Europe.

I'm not American, actually. I'm from Europe, and yes I'm pretty certain that most, if not all, of the top 10 drinking nations come from Europe. Well, the Russians might be there, too :P
