Before you head out to holiday parties this season, you need to make sure that you are prepared for what’s going to happen. One thing that you can’t overlook is that most holiday parties are going to include alcoholic beverages. This means that you need to plan how you will make it home if you do have alcohol.

You have a few different options about how to handle the situation. One of these is to bring nonalcoholic beverages so that you can have something to drink. People around you might not be aware that you don’t have alcohol in your drink.

Some people who’re trying to avoid drinking alcohol will volunteer to being the designated driver. Just knowing that your friends are counting on you to get home safely might be enough motivation for you to remain sober throughout the night. You can ask them to keep an eye on you so that you don’t have the time to drink.

While you are at the party, be sure that you participate in the activities that are going on. You might not miss alcohol if you are having fun. Do karaoke if it is offered, have conversations with people and mingle.

If you do have a few drinks, don’t try to drive home. Instead, find out if someone else can drive you or see if you can remain at the venue until you sober up. If you do end up having to drive yourself, you might be caught by a police officer. You will need to get a defense strategy set quickly so that you are able to use it to battle the case against you.
