You Will Need

- Honey or candy
Never drink on empty stomach
Never drink on an empty stomach—unless you like getting the spins. A meal will slow alcohol absorption by lining your stomach.
Drink 1 drink per hour
Stick to one alcoholic drink per hour, the most the liver can process.
Alternate alcohol w/ water
Alternate alcoholic beverages with glasses of water, because dehydration is what causes most of the unpleasant side effects of drinking, like headaches and nausea.
Dilute your drinks as the night goes on. Wine drinkers can switch to spritzers; beer lovers can order an English shanty—beer mixed with a lemon-lime soft drink.
Take a seat
Take a seat. People in bars drink more when they're standing because they are less relaxed.
