Thanksgiving drinks look very enticing. They come in a variety of colors, and they are very yummy to boot. They seem to reach out to the drinking beginner and shout, Drink me! For this reason it is not difficult to understand why those who are new to drinking often find themselves drinking many shots of Thanksgiving drinks at a party very quickly.
Another reason why new drinkers drink a lot very quickly is inexperience. If you do not have plenty of experience in drinking alcoholic Thanksgiving drinks, you may not yet know your limit. Thanksgiving drinks taste very delicious, and sometimes, you do not notice the effect of alcohol especially when you are messing around with your friends. Because of this, it is so simple for you to drink beyond your capacity.
To avoid drinking more than you can handle, you must try to drink slowly. Take one shot of those Thanksgiving drinks at a time, and take your time. That way, you will notice the effect of alcohol and how you react to it before it kicks you unconscious. Your body is not yet accustomed to alcohol, so it is very easy for you to get drunk. If you do not drink slowly, you will not notice the warning signs.
Your friends will probably encourage you to drink a lot of those Thanksgiving drinks, too. As the newbie drinker of the group, their attention will be focused on you. However, your friends are just doing that for fun. They will not like you more if you drink more. They will not also like you less if you drink less, so just drink at your own pace, and do not let them pressure you. They will soon tire of it and move on to other topics.
When you drink at your own pace, your friends might call you a lightweight. Do not let this bother you. Just laugh with them and continue to drink at your own pace. Do not take it seriously and show them how alcohol is just like water to you. If you do, you will just be making a joke out of yourself.
