Yes! I totally know what you mean! I almost feel like it's a "waste" of calories if I have ONE drink because it's not even enough to feel a little relaxed, so then I get into the idea that if I'm going to have one I might as well just make it three. Then I've had six and I have a terrible headache!! Lately I've just been turning it around and thinking, "I don't want to have three drinks, so why even have one? " Still, it is really hard when I'm hanging out with friends.
James Thurber once said, "One martini is all right, two is too many and three is not enough."
