Don't have that last drink. Start sobering up with a non-alcoholic drink as soon as having a
"last drink" starts sounding like a good idea. How many times have you woken up just to realize that you had one too many? That is world class rationalization, you had many too many, but it is within the realm of possibility that the last drink tipped you over some imaginary line between responsible drinker and lush.
Look, at the end of the night you're already full of booze. Your judgment, what little you have, is horribly compromised. You're about to pass out. Why push more alcohol into a system that's full already, especially when you won't even be awake to enjoy it? No, now is the time when adults, like those guys in Viagra commercials, start planning for the next phase of being a prepared drinker, the dreaded hangover!
