Stay Classy, Not Sloppy At Dinner Parties

Who does not enjoy a good time with friends? We all do. And more often than not, this “good time” involves drinks. But, we often forget that there is a difference between being drunk and being wasted altogether. If you cannot keep your shit together when drunk, you will not just ruin your own night but also your friends’. So, here are a few ways in which you can be a classy drunk at a party. 

1) Stack up on those carbs

Whatever you do, never ever drink on an empty stomach. It won’t be long before you become a sloppy mess that can’t stand on its two feet. So, when you know you’re going to have a long night ahead, ditch all those diet plans. Carbs are what you’ll need more than anything else. Get yourself some burgers and fries or pizzas of your choice and make sure that your belly is full. Trust me you won’t regret it.

2) Slow and steadily wins the race

Gulp down those drinks one after the other and before you know it, you’ll be puking all over the place. That’s right. Your body cannot process too much alcohol at once. It needs time, and you need to give it time. Go slow, give your body breaks between drinks. Remember you have all night, so don’t rush. Also, try not to mix drinks up too much. Your stomach will definitely not appreciate a mix of vodka, beer, tequila, and wine, and guess what? your friends will have to babysit you throughout the night. 

3) Water is your best friend

Feeling a little too dizzy? No need to worry, water can help. Give your body some breaks between drinks and during those breaks, drink water! Drinking a few glasses of water between drinks will slow down the rate at which alcohol is absorbed by your body and keep you sober for longer. Also, after a long drinking session, your body needs to be rehydrated. So, always keep a water bottle handy. 

4) Black is the best

What’s the most embarrassing thing that can happen to you at a party? Having your crisp white shirt covered in wine. Accidents are bound to happen at a party and it is always better to be safe than sorry. Wearing black will not only help you look classy and sophisticated but will also save you from embarrassment. Now, no one can notice that spilled red wine on a black shirt, can they?  

5) Know when to stop

A classy man always knows when to stop. Be aware of your body and its limits. If you feel like dancing on the bar top then you’ve probably had too much to drink. No one appreciates a man who cannot stand on his two feet. So, don’t push your body beyond its limits. If you feel a little too drunk it is better to stop right away.  

6) Pop in those vitamins

Party all night is fun. But hangovers early in the morning are definitely not. This is why it is better to pop in some multivitamins like vitamin B12 and vitamin C  beforehand. They reduce the symptoms of a hangover to a great extent and you will not have to go to work with a pounding headache the next day. What’s more? They also increase the rate at which alcohol is cleared from your body, reducing the damage it causes.

Now, the next time you go to a party, you know what to do. Follow these steps and be the classiest drunk in town. Cheers to all those good times ahead.
