Drink Without Getting Drunk on Spring Break

Feb 15, 2017

Many college students plan spring break trips to fun Mexican spots such as Cancun, Punta Cana, Puerto Vallarta, Cabo San Lucas and Playa del Carmen. In these areas, the drinking age is 18, rather than 21 in the states. As such, you can expect the alcohol to be freely flowing. And since this may be your first time drinking or drinking for long periods of time, you may not yet know how to hold and control your liquor. Here are a few tips that will allow you to indulge in some drinks without overdoing it and getting drunk.


Stay Hydrated

When you are sitting out in the sun by the pool or on the beach, it is easy to get dehydrated. And drinking only causes you to become more dehydrated. When you are dehydrated your body will absorb alcohol faster, which means you can feel the effects of your alcohol faster and stronger. Staying hydrated helps your body to break down and metabolize the alcohol so you don’t get drunk or don’t get there as quickly. Drink a glass of water before drinking any alcohol and consume at least one or two glasses before each beverage.


Eat Fatty Food

Another way to avoid getting drunk while drinking on spring break is to eat foods that have a high fat content. Items like avocados, nuts, burgers, pizza and fries help to soak up any alcohol in your system. Always eat something before consuming alcohol. And if you start to feel tipsy, reach for a fatty snack or appetizer to stop the wooziness in its tracks.

Stick to One Type of Alcohol

The last tip that can help prevent you from getting drunk while on spring break is to stick to one type of alcohol. If you start drinking different types of alcohol, you can get both drunk and sick. Try to stick to one type of alcohol for the day if you plan on indulging in a few drinks.
