Party Responsibly

Get-togethers, office parties or trips to a pub with friends – each of these moments are meant to be happy and memorable ones. But, all it takes to spoil those fond memories is one clumsy act or a "forgettable" incident. Following are a few useful tips to avoid nonsensical blabbering, embarrassing dances and most importantly to ensure the safety and good health of all concerned.

Know your drink and your limit

  • Eating before and during drinking alcohol is important to ensure that the alcohol gets absorbed slowly by the body
  • Know your limits and pace your drinks so you do not cross it, leading to embarrassing or even dangerous situations
  • Always enquire about the content of your glass if you are trying something new
  • Never leave your drink unattended just to make sure that it doesn't get spiked
  • Mixing too many drinks is not a good idea either. Limit yourself to one kind of drink to reduce a lot of possible discomfort (behavioural or physical) later
  • ...and if you're the host

  • Always serve enough food to go with the drinks
  • Stock up on alcoholic as well as non-alcoholic drinks. Not all guests prefer drinking always.
  • Make sufficient arrangements for dropping the guests back home, just in case...
  • Need some help?

    Well, that's the basics, though there's a lot more that can be said. But, the one thing that cannot be repeated enough number of times – Don't drive to drink, but if you must, then don't drink and drive. We want you to have a long and honourable life!

    If you've had one too many or one of your guests have, keep your emergency contact numbers on hand, such as
