How to Drink in Moderation?

Posted by / in Binge Drinking, Featured / No comments yet

It’s the holiday season, time to let go and relax, have a few drinks with friends and family. Basically, that time of the year where all you want to do is chill out, maybe even party the whole night long. But the truth is that just when you feel that the things are getting relaxed, or you’re in the bar and just getting into your groove, you get the urge to puke. And there you go cursing that last vodka shot.

It doesn’t matter how well you can drink and hold your alcohol, everyone has that one tipping point. And keeping in mind this party season and the impeding new year’s eve everyone is at a risk of throwing up.

But fret not now, there are tricks and tips you can keep in mind that would help you double the amount of alcohol you can drink without feeling that urge to puke.

Antacids

As the first precaution to keep in mind before a night out drinking is to pop some antacids before you head out. Antacids like Pan-D are easily available at most pharmacies and ensure that you don’t suffer from acidity and can hold yourself after drinking. A natural antacid is banana, and you can surely eat a couple of bananas before leaving.

No Mixing Drinks

You just had a pint of beer, and now want a couple of vodka shots. Or are wondering of trying out that scotch you’ve always wanted to. If this is the case, then you are definitely going to throw up later. Sure mixing drinks is the fastest way to get drunk really quick, but mixing more than three drinks will take your stomach for a good round spin.
If you absolutely have to mix drinks, keep at least a half hour gap between drinks.

Ice Down your drink

There is a reason most people prefer their drinks chilled. Ice is responsible for cooling down the drink so that it does not hurt your alimentary canal. Ice also dilutes your drinks so that it is less lethal and keeps you in control for a longer time.

Keep yourself Hydrated

Keeping yourself hydrated while drinking is extremely crucial. The potassium levels in your body can take a dip when you are drinking, which leaves you nauseated. You can also pick up a few refreshing mojitos and mocktails between drinks.
Keeping yourself hydrated also ensures that you don’t suffer from a deadly hangover the next morning.

Eating before hitting the club

Not only is this the smartest way of ensuring that you don’t find yourself in the bathroom hurling, it also saves you a ton of money on expensive meals at clubs and bars. Filing your stomach with a light meal increases your ability to drink more without getting tipsy.

Milk, Elaichi& Ginger

Getting a glass of milk before drinking hardens your intestines to the effects of alcohol, while cardamom and ginger are really effective ways of reducing nausea by popping one in your mouth whenever you feel that you have had a tad too much of alcohol.
