You’re young, you’re going to drink alcohol. Have fun and do what you want, but here are 5 Things You Should Know About Drinking Alcohol:
If it’s your first time drinking, don’t drink too much. Your first experience can go a few ways.
Depending on what way it goes, you don’t want to risk that scared feeling that you can’t control. Don’t listen to your friends. Drink the amount you’re comfortable with.
If you are drinking to just have some more fun than usual, then you really don’t need a lot.
Empty vs Full Stomach
If you haven’t eaten for a while, you will feel the drunkenness more than if you ate. Based off of this, really think about how much you’re going to drink before/when you go out.
My first time drinking was on an empty stomach and I took 2 ½ shots, I felt very dizzy after about 5 minutes and never wanted to drink again.
The point I’m trying to make, is don’t over do it.
