“I like to have a martini,Two at the very most.After three I’m under the table,after four I’m under my host.” – Dorothy Parker
I never appreciated Happy Hour until my mid-twenties. By that time, I was sort of over the clubbing phase–honestly I no longer had the bounce back of coming home late, sleeping for 1-3 hours and surviving a full 8-9 hours of work. So as a result, I became a huge fan of, after work socializing, unwinding and drinking with friends and colleagues. This way, I was still able to have a good time and not feel drained the next day. I go to Happy Hour at least once a week; the bartenders at my fave spot know my drink before I even open my mouth…usually an Apple Martini or Dark and Stormy and my limit, two drinks.
This morning as I was watching The Today Show, they did a segment on the ‘Drinking Mirror‘ app. The Drinking Mirror app allows you to see how drinking, whether socially or binge, ages you. Pretty creepy huh? You simply upload a recent pic of yourself, answer the question about your weekly alcohol consumption, and the app will show you, how you will look in 10 years. Pretty creepy huh? I’ve never really thought about the long term effects that one or two drinks a week, could have on the body. Things that make you go hmmmmm

I didn’t notice much of a difference…
