Most people tend to feel their mood sink a little when they decide to stay sober for a night out, either because they’ve been nominated as the designated driver for the night because it’s their turn, or they’ve just decided to stay sober for some reason. Either way, it can suck when you go out and have to stay sober while all your friends drink up and let loose on the dance floor.
One of the most frustrating things that can happen during a night out is the inability to get drunk.

It’s a tough question, and I’m about to sort through all the anecdotal stories I’ve heard and experienced in order to logically address this argument.
This is the second part of a two part article on how to avoid drunkenness and squalor on your night out.
Well well well, here is a question that can fire up a hell of a debate. Can people in relationships still go out clubbing, or do they have to avoid the party atmosphere now that they’re in a relationship?
Yes, we have all been there. A night out is something we all look forward at the end of the week, but more often than not, it’s a night that we don’t always remember. Here are the top 5 ways to help fill in the blank spaces from a wicked night out.
Most of us can relate to that feeling of being drunk; that giddy intoxication that starts to lower our inhibitions and self-control as we stumble around either laughing our heads off or sobbing our hearts out (or both!). Most of us can literally feel the fuzziness wrapping our brains in cotton wool as the alcohol seeps into our bloodstream and starts to work its magic, bringing out both the best and worst in us depending on our moods and personalities.
