Personal Injury Attorney | The DON’Ts of New Year’s
Personal Injury Attorney | DON’T do these actions on New Year’s and have a great time with loved ones.
DON’T: Binge Drink
If you want to ring in the New Year with a drink, you won’t be alone. But make sure you ring in the New Year with a drink and not the whole bottle. Binge drinking is a common problem on New Year’s and can lead to drunk driving, drunk walking and alcohol poisoning, or at the very least, some embarrassing behavior you probably won’t be able to remember the next morning.
DON’T: Go Crazy With The Fireworks
No New Year’s celebration would be complete without fireworks, but if you plan on staging your own fireworks display, make sure you do it in an open, clear area, keep the fireworks away from your body and be sure to have a bucket of water close by. Many hand and arm injuries result from firework explosions gone awry and many people have gone blind from lighting fireworks improperly. Firework smoke is also a danger as it contains toxins that can irritate the lungs, so if you suffer from asthma, you may want to let someone else light the fireworks.
DON’T: Do Illicit Drugs
The only thing that should be high on New Year’s Eve is the ball in Times Square. New Year’s Eve is a night of tempting bad decisions, but don’t let doing drugs be one of them. If you feel you might fall off of the wagon with either drugs or alcohol, have a buddy close by who can keep you in check.
DON’T: Kill Your Feet
Your feet should look killer on New Year’s Eve, but they should be killed by the shoes you wear that night. Comfort is key since you’ll probably be standing on your feet all night, so wear flats instead of 6-inch heels. Rub on some anti-blister cream, which is designed to prevent your feet from sweating and protects them from any friction caused by your shoe. If you don’t have any anti-blister cream, roll some deodorant on your feet and be sure to bring some Band-Aids for your friends. They’re probably going to need some by the end of the night.
New Year’s Eve is a time to bid farewell to the old and ring in the new, so this year, kick those old habits and ring in the New Year the right way by following these dos and don’ts.
