3. Watch your cues

Some people can tell when they're about to get into drunk town. They become inactive, the become talkative, their lips and face loses feeling, they suddenly become in need of human contact or they feel like they can do anything. When you feel like this, take a break from the drinking. Take lots of water relative to how much alcohol you consumed.

4. Crush ice

Ask for drinks that come with ice. Between sips, crush some ice with your teeth. This helps keep you aware and hydrated.

According to Food Hacks, yeast contains properties that would break components in the alcohol that would otherwise be toxic to your body.
