Stage 1: Responsible Planning
This happens at the very beginning of your night (or day…no judgment) when you lie to yourself and everyone else by saying you’re definitely not planning to get as drunk as that last time.
Stage 2: The celebratory first drink
Tonight will be a blast and nothing bad is going to happen because we’re going to be responsible adults who drink responsibly!
Stage 3: Shots!
You just want to accelerate that warm buzz and then you’ll totally stick to your mixed drinks for the rest of the night.
