Sip, Sip, Hooray! How To Celebrate Without Drunk Dialing

Mymuse Team - Jun 05, 2024

A little sip can give anyone the courage to do the unthinkable, which also includes drunk dialing. So let us learn what drunk dialling is and how you can avoid being its victim.

Picture this: it's 2 a.m., the bar has closed, and you’re feeling a mix of invincibility and nostalgia. You pull out your phone, scroll through contacts, and before you know it, you’ve called your ex, your high school gym teacher, and maybe even the pizza place, just to tell them how much you love them.

What is Drunk Dialling, Exactly?

Drunk dialing is the art (yes, we’ll call it that) of making phone calls or sending messages while under the influence of alcohol. These communications are often ill-advised, deeply emotional, and sometimes downright hilarious—or mortifying, depending on your perspective. If you’re falling in love with your best friend, it is best you hide your phone somewhere to avoid drunk dialing.

Why Do People Do It?

Liquid Courage

Alcohol is often referred to as liquid courage for a reason. It lowers inhibitions and makes you feel bolder. That means all the things you wouldn’t dare say sober—confessions of love, unsolicited opinions, pulling our Slick oil-based lubricant gel in front of your new date, or just plain gibberish—seem like brilliant ideas when you’ve had a few too many. Isn’t this what drunk dialing is?

FOMO

Fear of missing out doesn't go away just because you're tipsy. You might feel an overwhelming urge to reconnect with friends or acquaintances, fearing that if you don't reach out now, you might miss out on something amazing.

Boredom Buster

Let's face it, sometimes the party or the bar scene just isn't doing it for you. Your phone becomes a lifeline to entertainment, and what's more entertaining than posting a funny (embarrassing really) photo of yourself for some likes?

Stop, Drop, and Roll: How to Avoid Drunk Dialling

Now that you know what drunk dialling is, here are a few tips to save you from waking up to regret of "Did I really say that?"

  • Protect Your Peace: Set a passcode or a complicated lock pattern on your phone before heading out. Your intoxicated brain will thank you when it can’t figure out how to unlock your device.
  • Buddy System: Have a trusted friend keep an eye on your phone. Choose someone responsible who will confiscate your device when you start getting all emo.
  • App Assistance: There are apps designed to save you from yourself. Apps like Drunk Lock or Drunk Mode can help by blocking certain contacts or requiring you to solve math problems before you can make a call. If you can't do algebra sober, you definitely won't manage it tipsy.
  • Airplane Mode Magic: Switch your phone to airplane mode once you get home and simply use a hand-held massager to distract yourself. You'll still be able to take those cute selfies and group photos, but your calls and texts will be grounded.
