Since the holidays are fast approaching, you're bound to be attending an office party or two in the next few months.

- Know your limits and don't go overboard. It's not a contest to see who can drink the most.
- If you feel yourself starting to get a little tipsy, remember to not say anything you will regret come Monday morning, and it might be a good idea to make a quick exit.
