Weekend Sip Tip

4.30.2010
Challenge yourself. If you choose to drink this weekend, set a limit before you head out. Decide what you are going to drink, and how many of those drinks you want to have. And no, "as many as it takes to blackout" is not a number. The standard definition for binge drinking is 5 drinks in one sitting for men, and 4 drinks in one sitting for women. See if you can stay under those numbers. You may be surprised to find that you can have just as enjoyable a night without as much alcohol. You can nurse your drinks, switch to non-alcoholic beverages, or simply stop drinking completely. It's easy to get caught up the party scene, but setting your own limits allows you to stay in control. See if you can stop at your number- Stop@Buzzed!
