FantasticFawn :  I hope you’re not serious. That is so rude to the people who have to clean it up.

Say you’re pregnant?

Only kidding. Just have water between each alcoholic beverage, and make sure you eat. Hangovers aren’t cute once you are out of your mid 20’s, so just say no to drinks once you reach your determined limit.

blahblahgirl :  I was in the same position — I didn’t want to get destroyed at mine.

I drank water between drinks and didn’t do any shots (though we weren’t in a place where that was possible anyway), and when I felt myself starting to hit my limit, I cut myself off for the night. Most of my friends respected that; one bridesmaid got a little pouty but she got over it quickly

ladycirtolthiel :  people spill probably 100’s of drinks at busy clubs. its not like clubs/dive bars are the cleanest places. 1oz of liquor on the floor isn’t going to make too much of a difference. A full drink? Yeah maybe they’ll mop that up but probably not 1oz.

when I was in a sorority birthdays were like that–everyone buying you drinks even long after you should have been cut off.

I always talked to the bartender when I could find a moment (just say you want to grab a water or something) and told them to start serving me Virgin drinks. Worked like a charm.

ladycirtolthiel :  sometimes your choices are get rid of the shot, or risk vomiting on the floor. I think the bar would much rather deal with the ounce of liquor on the ground.

This isn’t difficult. Stand up for yourself and Just. Say. No. Repeat as many times as needed. If these women would really force drinks on you, despite your objections,  then you are hanging out with the wrong kind of friends.

italianbride0508 said. Get over it, a little spilled alcohol is the least of the disgusting things that cleaners at a dive bar have to clean up, and not to mention they are paid to do it.

Honestly, the best thing to do is eat a good meal beforehand (something substantial, think burger instead of salad) and say no when you don’t want anymore. If your friends won’t listen (which is really awful of them, but whatever), drink slowly. I don’t like shots, so when I “have” to take them I usually just drink half of it and sip the rest or just plain push it aside. Most of the time it gets lost in the shuffle and no one gives me a hard time about it.

FantasticFawn :  Like… just pour the shot on the floor? LOL, are you serious? I know people are paid to clean but it’s still disrespectful (and dangerous!) to dump drinks on the floor. People are paid to clean up restaurants, too, but I don’t throw my fries on the ground when I don’t want to finish them.

OP, just speak up and tell your friends when you don’t want any more drinks. If they continue to buy them, let them just sit there on the table. Someone else will drink what you rejected if you refuse long enough.

Haha I go into hot mess mode too!! And I’m the same… It wasn’t like that in my 20s. I can prob do 3 shots now in a night. I seriously could do 6-8 before. 😳 

We are doing NOLA for my bachelorette and I’m so nervous!! lol

I just stuck to beer for most of my hen’s night. At least then I know the exact alcohol contnet – unlike shots! And I find with beer, I get full before I get wasted haha. It’s a shame because I love cocktails and wine, but it’s my go to for a big night.

I know it feels a little difficult and rude to decline, but you really have to make a decision just to not give in to the pressure, and only drink what you know you can handle. It’s boring, but there it is. You can still have plenty of fun and get buzzed. But no amount of sleep, hydration, or food is going to do anything for you if you let people push drinks on you that you’re unable to handle.

I really have no patience for people trying to shame me into drinking more. In recent years my body has been rejecting liquor pretty hardcore. I almost never do shots now. When people try to push shots onto me that I’ve already declined, I say, “Dude, get that shit away from me,” and go back to what I’m sipping.

You need to attain Zero Fucks Given status. People will still love you and have fun with you (maybe even more). 😉
