  • Look Sexy Naked
    Though we may not be too critical of our partner’s flaws — after all, our lover is only human — most women excel at seeing even the most minute problems with our own bodies. And that perception can make it really difficult to share ourselves with one of the people we love the most. Whether […]
  • Woman are NOT the same as men
    The precedence of women in this day and age has certainly evolved from the rather backward image society held years ago… Women have forged relevant notions in the world and have proven to be just as useful as their male counterparts.

How to Drink Responsibly this Festive Season

8 December; Author: Niyija

You’ve heard the horror stories about end of year office party blunders, but there are ways to have fun without drinking too much.

From DrinkIQ (a brandhouse initiative), here are some tips on how to drink in moderation and make sure that your Christmas party lives up to its promise.



Have a plan for getting home safely

You know how you are going to get to the party, and what you are going to wear. But the one thing that people forget is to plan how you are going to get home safely. Always have cash set aside for your taxi ride home; or get a designated driver, or better still – be the designated driver yourself.  Never drink and drive!

Eat before you drink

Drinking on an empty stomach can be a recipe for disaster. Food will help to slow the absorption of alcohol into the circulatory system.

Pace yourself

Alcohol will dehydrate you so drink plenty of water or soft drinks beforehand and during the night to make sure you stay refreshed.

Don’t ever accept drinks from strangers

Make sure you get your drinks from the barman directly, and make sure you watch the barman open the drink in front of you. This ensures that you know where your drink is coming from and nothing is spiked.

Sip your drinks – don’t down them

It’s all about quality and not quantity. And your head will feel better in the morning.

Know your limit

Most people find that no more than a drink an hour will keep them in control of the situation and avoid drunkenness.

Respect those who don’t want to drink

It is considered impolite to attempt to get people to drink who do not wish to. They may abstain for religious or medical reasons, because they are recovering alcoholics, or they just may not like the taste and effect it has on them.

DrinkIQ suggests that if you track how much alcohol you drink you are well on your way to making responsible choices about alcohol.
