Don’t worry it happens to everyone – that is if you want to be hilariously remembered by your friends for your embarrassing drunk episodes you tune on. If you lose track of your drinking, you can go from stone sober to sloppy drunk in what appears to be a matter of minutes. You and your friends pregame a little before heading out and next thing you know you end up going to a few bars, pubs and maybe even a dance club. By the time you are aware, the drinking didn’t just buzz you, it made you downright drunk. At these situations do you ask yourself, ‘how do you know when you’ve had too much?’ or thought, ‘I should’ve drank responsibly.’ Rest assured for people like you, here are 6 obvious ways to know you’ve hit your alcohol limit.
1. You Assume Your Stories Are Entertaining And People Enjoy Them
We’ve all probably experienced seeing this type of friend break-out their introvert personality to suddenly tell the greatest story at the party. How? Of course, with the help of some or many beers, wine, liquor you name it. It may be just as uninteresting as it is when they’re sober, but hey everything is entertaining when your drunk.
2. You Actually Believe You Are A Dancing Machine
So yeah, drinking can lower your inhibitions, which can be great for an intimate moment with your dates or enjoying a little get together with friends and families. But totally NOT for wild party dancing. It can either get really messy or feel like watching a cringy, awkward, failed talent show. You might think you can dance really well, but you are not your true self when drunk, so watch out.
3. You Think You’re A Great Singer
Drinking and karaoke nights equal disaster. Unless you have a little alcohol in your system to calm your nerves from singing, most people are self-conscious when it comes to singing public. But too much is when you enjoy scream-singing almost every song for the rest of the night and that is a big no-no.
4. You Crave The Greasiest Food Possible
As good as it sounds to find yourself drawn to greasy, cheesy, heart-stoppingly delicious cheeseburgers or overflowing tacos, it probably is just a sign saying you’ve had a little too much to drink. Although there are some positives of eating greasy fast food because it can make your hangover less severe the next day.
5. You Constantly Need Something To Lean On
We’re closing the near end when your at this stage of drinking. If you need to hold onto the wall for dear life for fear of falling off the Earth, you definitely had too much to drink. Any minute now you will be on the verge of blacking out.
6. You Pass Out
Your drinking limit has reached its destination. ‘Falling asleep sitting up’ is the final straw when it comes to drinking too much, also known as ‘passing out’. Too much is when you think your fine until you struggle to even manage to get into your own bed. Pretty sad, but so true when you drink without knowing your limit.
