10 Types of Drinker You Will Find In a Pub

We could be one of them or we could have them around us. Alcohol brings out the hidden personality in us. This person could be entertaining or irritating and there is no better place than a pub nearby, where you can encounter such personalities. 

Here are 10 types of drinker you will find at a pub

  1. The no limit today: These are the people who come with one motto to a pub which is to drink, drink and drink some more. They will not spare alcohol in any form and drink until they drop.

  2. The feather-headed: These are quite opposite to the no-limit people. They come prepared with a plan to drink at least a Kingfisher beer,  a Smirnoff vodka shot and an Antiquity whiskey cocktail. But, unfortunately, they feel the ground under their feet shake after few sips of beer.

  3. The Showoff: You often find some people come into the bar and order names of whiskey or scotch that would definitely be not available in India, and when the bartender says it is not available, they roll their eyes and order a peg of Johnny Walker. They would even seize the opportunity to elaborate it to the bartender their dalliance with imported liquor.

  4. The Dance Master: Just after few pegs of Signature premium whiskey, you will find these people on the dance floor. They normally do not dance, but once the alcohol goes in the dancer in them wakes up.

  5. The Party till you drop type: These are the people who firmly believe that the real party starts after midnight. They do not like to go home and do not mind dancing and partying till the sun rises.

  6. The Responsible Drinker: They have the money and the capacity to drink limitless, but they choose not to. They stick to their alcohol limit and stay in their senses throughout the party.

  7. The Chugger: As the name hints, they do not drink, they chug. These people are tankers and can chug a beer without putting the bottle down. You will often find these people in beer chugging competitions.

  8. Shots, shots more shots: Even Though there are a variety of alcohols in the pub, these people only prefer to have shots. For them, it is shots or no drinking at all.

  9. The Emo Guy: You will find this guy emotionally stable as he enters the pub, but shortly after two pegs of whiskey, he begins to cry and remember all the sadness in his life and sits and sulks.

  10. The Bully: These people, when drunk become aggressive and try to bully other people, these are the ones who usually start a bar fight.

Next time when you are at a pub nearby, look around and you will definitely find some of these.

How to Stick to Responsible Drinking While Partying in a Pub

Not all of us go to a party with one motto- which is to order a martini or a peg of Antiquity blue whiskey followed by a Kingfisher beer and finish it off with a Smirnoff shot. Some prefer to drink within limits and would like to go to a pub nearby to have a good time with friends, but it is not always easy for them as they will be treated as the black sheep of the group. Here is the blog post on how to avoid feeling left out at a party when you are the one who wants to drink responsibly.

It is ok to want to drink responsibly: In order to stay strong and confidently face the awkward questions from your friends, first, you need to believe that it is absolutely normal to want to drink within limits. There is no hard and fast rule that you need to drink until you drop and wake up with an unbearable hangover the next day. 

Be Prepared to answer questions: Yes! There will be many irritating and repetitive questions, just like how you made up your mind to drink responsibly, you will have to be prepared with a set of answers so that you put forth your point in a subtle yet strong manner. Few examples of your answers could be 

I just decided to stick to one peg of signature premier whiskey for tonight

I need to start early for work so I am avoiding the hangover

Two cans of Kingfisher beer is my limit

Stick to one drink: Another way to avoid being dragged into the limelight for drinking less is, to order a peg of your favorite Johnny Walker whiskey and drink it all along the night. You can also alternate any non- alcoholic drink so that it will buy you some more time with your single alcoholic drink.

Pressured to drink more? Avoid it: Even though you told them that you would like to stay within limits, some people would insist that you drink one more, if you oblige that one more will become ten more and before you know you will be ending up drunk. So, if anyone offers you a drink, politely decline and say you are fine. If your close friends go a step further and bring you a drink without your permission, just accept it but do not drink it. You can either leave it aside or offer it to your other friends.

Think of the Hangover the next day: Whenever you feel the urge to give in, just think of the painful hangover that would follow the next day and motivate yourself to drink within limits. In order to distract yourself, start up a conversation with your friends, shift your focus on food and music.

By following such pointers you can definitely enjoy the party and stay sober as well.
