Let’s face it. Some of the most fun social events involve drinking, getting tipsy, dancing to loud music, and spending time with friends. However, some friends tend to get a little too intoxicated sometimes.
When your friend over consumes alcohol, you are typically tasked with the job of taking care of them, giving them water, food, and putting them to bed.
However, on some dangerous occasions, you may even need to escort these friends to the hospital. Now, these are all occurrences that many people have had to deal with when their friend decides to go a bit overboard on alcoholic beverage consumption. So, one tip to avoid an even worse scenario is to avoid allowing that friend who tends to over drink the opportunity to take a shot or two of absinthe.
Now, absynthe is a type of alcoholic drink that is not even legal in most of the United States.
However, it is prevalent in Europe and other countries and is often taken to add a hallucinogenic state of drunkenness to whoever it is consumed by. For people who decide to partake in this type of alcohol, be prepared that you may get a bit sick from it, as it is extremely strong. It is also important to note that absynthe has the ability to make you drunker than you normally would get by just drinking regular alcohol.
With that being said, it may be smart to limit your consumption to one or two shots of absinthe, especially if it is your first time trying it. It is also important to be responsible for the amount of other alcohol that you choose to consume at the same time.
Depending on your tolerance, you may be fine having a few more drinks as well. However, if you or your friends tend to be lighter weights, maybe avoid excessive drinking of other types of alcohol as this could result in a variety of health issues and sickness. So, when trying absinthe for the first time, remember to make an active effort in counting the number of drinks you consume, be careful to not go overboard on the amount of absinthe that you drink, and many don’t partake in that extra round or five of tequila shots that your friend is buying.
