During his insight to us, he elaborated on the following things that should be kept in mind before you go on for intaking alcohol. Here’s what not to do when you are drunk:

1.Savor your meal: Make sure that you are not drinking on an empty stomach, and also ensure that you are eating meals that are high in things like carbs, that are soluble for drinking alcohol

2.Enjoy your beverage: Sip your drink, and do not drink in excess quickly to get a better buzz

3.Avoid Binging: Binge drinking is 5 or more drinks in less than 4-5 hours

4.Keep your number of drinks as low as possible: Don’t consume more than 3 drinks for a man, and 2 for a woman

5.Know your alcohol: One beer is equivalent to a glass of wine, or a shot of liquor

6.Find a driver: Don’t drive after drinking. It is hard to judge your BAC level and its effects on your cognitive ability and reflexes

7.Take your meds: If you are a diabetic or hypertensive, suffering from a heart or liver condition, take your daily meds and check with your doctor to avoid alcohol interactions with meds

8.Avoid overdoing pain meds: If you are going to use Tylenol, don’t exceed more than 3 grams in one day. Be aware that a lot of headache medicines or painkillers contain acetaminophen (Tylenol), so avoid accidental overdosing.

9.Don’t mix: Avoid mixing alcohol with other recreational drugs.

10.Space your beverages out: Allow your body the ability to metabolize what you ingested and avoid intoxication.
