GOLDEN RULES OF DRINKING ALCOHOL
Do Not “Count” Your Drinks
A magnanimous host was once entertaining a guest to drinks and dinner.
In the best traditions of hospitality, the generous host kept on plying his guest with the best of premium whisky, offering his guest a new glass of whisky the moment he finished the earlier one, forcing him to down peg after peg, saying, “Come on, cheers, down the hatch, have one more, have one more!”
Finally the guest, who was feeling quite high, said, “Please. Enough. I have already had six drinks!”
The host replied, “Not six – you have had ten drinks! But who is counting?”
The moral of the story is that you must never count your drinks – whether you are the guest, or you are the host, or you are just drinking by yourself.
Drinking is a qualitative pastime not a quantitative activity.
You must know exactly how much to drink.
And how do you do that?
Well, that I will tell you soon, right here in my blog in Part 4 of my series on THE GOLDEN RULES OF DRINKING ALCOHOL (If you want to read the earlier parts of this series, links to the posts are given below):
