and then start to drink water. It is fine to have a drink because you are going

out for drinks after work and it is fun and conversational and that is all fine

that slope can be slippery. Sometimes we use alcohol to feel more confident,

make us feel more comfortable in this situation where we may meet our Bosses,

the clients. So, it is really important that you only have one drink and know

your limit. The other thing that you need to remember in drinks after work is

that here is your opportunity to reach out sign of the scope of day to day work
