The physiological effects of alcohol, boy do I know this one all too well.  Who among us has not prayed to the porcelain god at 3am?  Who has ever woke up the next morning lying beside a bar beast or landing in jail because of Jose or Jack?  Maybe you’ve said, “Man…sure I slept with her, but I was really drunk!”  Come on, you knew what you were doing at the time, it’s just that alcohol helps you say, “Aw, what tha hell!”  Hey don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to be anit-alcohol, I love to drink.  I’m not an alcoholic or at least that’s what I keep telling my therapist.  I just like to have a good time every now and then with Jack Daniels…and maybe a one night stand after a show.  But if you drink, regardless of your tolerance level, at some point you will be affected by the booze.  So if you are going to drink alcohol and drive, plan ahead.  Give your keys to a sober person, preferably someone you know.   Have a designated driver.  Drink at home, alone, that way psycho problems start to develop, but at least you are a safe drinker.

Join us again next week for more safe drinking habits and tips. I hope you keep sending in your comments and suggestions.  Until then…

Take care and be safe-
