The Ten Commandments of Liquor Drinking

Liquor drinking is serious business. That's why we've put together the ten commandments of liquor drinking, so you can always be sure that you're doing it right, and staying safe.

  1. Thou shalt always drink liquor with food. Liquor on an empty stomach is never a good idea. That's why there's a rule about waiting an hour after eating before you start drinking. Liquor on an empty stomach goes straight to your head, and you'll end up feeling lightheaded and dizzy. Not to mention, you'll be more likely to make poor decisions when you're drunk on an empty stomach. 
  2. Thou shalt know thy drink. Be familiar with the various types of liquor and what they taste like before you order. Know Your Alcohol. Vodka, gin, tequila, whiskey, rum... they're all different, and they all get you drunk in different ways. Some will hit you hard and fast, while others will sneak up on you gradually. And your tolerance levels vary depending on what you're drinking. So it's important to know what kind of alcohol you're drinking, and how strong it is
  3. Thou shalt not drink to get drunk. Know your limits and stick to them. Alcohol poisoning is no joking matter. If you're going to drink alcohol, make sure to do so in moderation. Don't drink too much in one sitting, and be sure to keep track of how much you're consuming. Additionally, be aware of your own alcohol tolerance levels. If you know that you tend to get drunk easily, stick to drinks with lower alcohol content. And finally, always remember to hydrate. Drinking plenty of water will help to reduce the risk of hangovers and other negative consequences of alcohol consumption.
  4. Thou shalt not mix thy drinks. Stick to one type of alcohol per night to avoid becoming sick or making poor decisions. Not only does it result in an unpleasant taste, but it can also lead to serious health problems. Mixed alcoholic drinks can be strong stuff, so be sure you know your liquor and your limitations. Stick to one type of Liquor per drink to avoid any issues.
  5. Thou shalt not drink and drive. This is perhaps the most important commandment of all. Never ever drink and drive. Not only is it illegal, but it's also incredibly dangerous. If you're going to drink, always have a designated driver or take public transportation home. 
  6. Thou shalt tip generously . If you're enjoying good service at a bar or restaurant, make sure to show your appreciation with a generous tip . After all , bartenders and servers work hard to keep customers happy , and they deserve to be properly compensated for their efforts.
  7. Thou shalt not pressure others into drinking alcohol. Not everyone enjoys drinking liquor, and that's perfectly OK! Don't try to pressure others into drinking if they don't want to - let them make their own choices about alcohol consumption.
  8. Thou shalt not Spirit-Shame. We all have our own preferences when it comes to alcohol, so there's no need to judge others for their choices - even if they're different from your own. Live and let live - or in this case, drink and let drink!
  9. Thou shalt not get Liquor on Credit. If you can't afford to pay for your liquor upfront, then it's time to rethink your drinking habits - or find a new source of income. There's nothing worse than being stuck with a huge bar tab that you can't pay off!
  10. Lastly, thou shalt enjoy thyself! Drinking should be fun, so make sure that you're only doing it in moderation and in situations where you're comfortable and safe.. If you follow these ten commandments, then you're guaranteed to have a good time while staying safe and responsible...So cheers to that!
