How To Keep Your Drinking Under Control

Updated on September 30, 2011


Are you a person that has their life under control? Are you a person that thinks that you can control your alcohol intake and still have fun without being blown out drunk?

How to keep your drinking under control takes willpower and to be able to admit that you have had enough to drink. You are a person that knows when enough is enough and you are a person that knows the most important words, the words, "NO MORE"

Do you think that you are strong enough to turn a drink away when you think you have had enough. Did you ever say, " I think I will have just ONE more." Oh, those words sound so familiar to me and I'm sure those words can relate to many other people that love their drink.

You know, when we are out on the town having a great time drinking with our families and friends, many of us lose count of just how many drinks we have had and before you know it you are pretty much buzzed and can't figure out how it happened so sudden. We not only lose count of our drinks we also lose count of time, because time does fly by when we are having a great time.

If you are out having that great time drinking alcohol do you think you would be able to say I have had enough to drink while others are still pounding them down? Do you think you would feel uncomfortable not drinking alcohol while your friends or families are still partying away and you are sobering up by the minute?

I know, this hub is full of, " Do You Thinks" but I always wondered what other people that are addicted to alcohol think and act like and if they have the willingness and the strength to say, "I have had enough." I know as far as I go that was one of my biggest problems. It was never enough and I didn't know when to say No More.

The demons inside of me controlled me and I didn't have the strength to control then so I became dependant and addicted to my worse enemy, alcohol.

Controlling your drinking is up to only you. You are the only one that knows when you have had enough, but then again, some of us never think we have had enough to drink. We are told by our drinking friends sitting next to us at the bar and even, hopefully the bartender will flag us if they think we have had too much to drink. Sometime these bartenders overlook the fact that we are drunk and not capable of deciding we are through drinking for the night, in which may be a fatal mistake on their part in some cases.

One way I learned to control my drinking is NOT TO DRINK ALCOHOL AT ALL! That is my solution to controlling my drinking and guess what, it works perfect.

No drinks to count. No worries getting home. No hangovers in the morning. No getting sick. No bar fights. No saying something you may regret the next day. All these things are possible if you can control your drinking or (just don't drink at all.)

      I think that it is important to be able to recognize one's ability to control, or be controlled, by drinking. Wonderful points here.
