Alcoholics, this one is for you. We all have different tolerance levels for booze but one thing is certain, your body will let you know when you’ve had one cup too many.

Here are a few ways you can just tell that you’re drunk and it is time to put down the bottle.

You start feeling generous

Once you start feeling generous and offering to settle everybody’s bill, you know you’re getting there. Even when you’ll be left with 1k in your account after paying because in this life, problem no dey finish. Try dey enjoy.

You tell everybody you love them

The next stage is telling everybody you love them. One minute you’re drinking stout, the next you’re telling your friend: “Bro I love you so much. If you ever need me I’ll come through bro.”
