Cannabis seeds and pretty much all marijuana by-products are illegal in the UK, along with other drugs that have even more dire consequences, but there are other ways for people to achieve a high. The most popular way for people to get a buzz without drugs is alcohol. For an evening of drinking to go the best it possibly can, there are ways that people can prepare themselves.
For the person who knows that they are going to be drinking that night, there is no need to get started too early. The idea may be tempting, but those who start drinking too early are guaranteed to pass out early, or get sick along the way.
Along the same lines, it is crucial for people who are planning to drink to eat some food before consuming any alcohol. In fact, all drinkers should be eating along the way, even if they are just eating pub food. Keeping the stomach full reduces the chance of nasty hangovers. This is especially true if there is a long day of drinking planned, such as what may occur at a music festival.
Once the drinking starts, drinkers should avoid mixing alcohols, as this tends to increase the risk of nausea. For example, having a glass of water after every drink keeps the drinker hydrated, which reduces their risk of developing a hangover. Another tactic is to take a break between drinks so the body has a chance to recover.
