Lifestyle Guru: 05/11/2019


  1. I used to drink a lot in my younger years because my alcohol tolerance was also high. But that has lessened as I aged. I can’t have more than 1 glass of bottle anymore. Beyond that is a stretch. And alcohol does not give a boost in energy like before, it will only make me sleepy. So, I can really live without it. Just drinking for celebrations and special occasions.

  2. It is important to be aware of risks when drinking! It can impact people so differently, so it is good to know of all the possible effects.

  3. Alcohol is such a complicated thing. It’s been with humans for a long time, it’s the beverage of celebration, but it can be so dangerous for some. Outside of all the things you mentioned, it is important for people to keep tabs of their mental health, particularly if prone to addiction.

  4. This was an excellent and informative post. I’ve been sober now for over a year as I just couldn’t say no, nor was I a good ‘drunk’ if that makes sense.
    This is vital advice.

  5. I don’t drink anymore but it’s important to remember that if your weight changes, your body’s alcohol tolerance also changes. This is something a lot of people fail to remember.

  6. This is a good post Abu, that will help many people. I am a teetotaler, but will forward your safe drinking tips to my friends.

  7. I think a lot of people overlook the power of salty snacks. Why do you think bars like to serve things like pretzels and salted peanuts? They are looking to boost their sales by making you thirsty with the salt content therefore leading to drinking more! It really is a smart business decision on their part.
