How often have you encountered people at a party who are absolutely sure they can handle their alcohol? Every single person, every single time, right?

A new study conducted in Cardiff, Wales tried to decipher this mystery where researchers visited 4 pubs in the city on weekends interviewing people for months and asked them just 4 questions.

1) How drunk are you right now, on a 1 (totally sober) to 10 (completely drunk) scale?
2) How extreme has your drinking been tonight, on a 1 (not at all) to 10 (completely extreme) scale?”
3) If you drank as much as you have tonight every week, how likely is it that you will damage your health in the next 15 years, on a 1 (definitely will not) to 10 (definitely will) scale?
4) If you drank as much as you have tonight every week how likely is it that you will get cirrhosis of the liver in the next 15 years, on a 1 (definitely will not) to 10 (definitely will) scale?

The study concluded that people’s view of their own sobriety was directed by those sober in their groups. Also, that people tend to get drunk more often when they’re out in a big group. That’s a surprise! *Hitch*

So, remember people. Make your own choices, drink responsibly and never, NEVER drive after drinking.
