Guidelines to Responsible Drinking Drinking should never be the primary focus of any activity. Always recognize some one else’s right to choose to drink or not to drink. Set a limit and stick to it! Always pay attention to medications that you have been taking prior to the consumption of alcohol. Birth control pills or other pills with estrogen increase intoxication. It takes twenty minutes for the full effect of one alcoholic beverage to hit your body, so pace yourself. Eat before you drink. Eating high-protein foods like cheeses and meats will slow down the absorption rate so that the alcohol will not hit your system all at once. Drinking carbonated beverages with alcohol or carbonated alcohol preparations increases the absorption of alcohol into the bloodstream, while diluting alcohol with water slows absorption. NEVER consume alcohol and energy drinks, they have opposing effects on your body. Caffeine speeds up your heart rate, while alcohol slows it down.
