Im off to a big swanky event on Thurs nite in London - our company is in the Times Top One Hundred UK companies - lm going (its £185 a ticket) - got a dress in Banana Republic when in Vegas in Dec - but my prob is l will prob get pissed and make a tit of myself (although even at £185 a ticket booze is not free!!!!) Any suggestions on how l can behave my self and salvage dignity and any promotion chances l may have - btw not drinking aint an option !!

Sorry you're on your own on this one, it is one of the greatest mysteries of the universe...if I knew the answer to this one I would probably be a highly successful, married woman by now

p.s, if you ever discover let me know!

It's easy, just build up your tollerance with several sessions on the piss with mates. When you go there go for spritzers or something along those lines....

i think you will have to tell yourself over and over again 'I will not get pissed'...maybe write it on your hand:P...if you spend most of your time concentrating on this maybe..you will not get drunk?
People say you should never drink on an empty stomach, so you could also eat lots before the party?
or you could not go to the party? ( would be a shame though since u payed so much)

i actually have the same problem !! the company i work for is in the top 50 and we have a swanky do on tonight , tickets were about €170, finally got the clothes and transport sorted early hours this morning, as we're all getting our hair done at lunch we won't have time to eat before the event, it starts with a wine reception, i know i'm going to get drunk and probably say something stupid, aghhhhhh
