  • Water doesn’t only keep your drinks neat. Alcohol is a diuretic, meaning it likes to suck out all of the water leaving you pretty dehydrated the next day…aka…hungover. So to keep your swag all night long and into the next day try water in between drinks.
  • Stay in the game longer with this trifecta of endurance: be well rested, eat before and during your night out and pace – switch between straight booze and wine/beer or non-alcoholic drinks.
  • Buy less to consume less – buying in bulk can be cheaper but it can also lead to drinking more then what we intended to
  • 1+1 doesn’t have to equal 3. Put a condom in your wallet, pocket or purse.

  • No, Thank you
  • I’m fine right now, I may take you up on it in a little bit (opt for a wink)
  • I’m fine thank you, I have an early flight to Switzerland tomorrow
  • No thank you, I’m driving but I will take you up on some water please
  • I’m good. I got a shark bite while surfing in the Cayman Islands last weekend, so I am on antibiotics.
