Diet soda: Ah, my perennial problem! I give at least 2 lectures a week and always get invited to the cocktail parties. My solution is to have 1 drink, then ask for a club soda with lime, which everyone assumes is a gin & tonic. And I avoid those little platters full of snacks - each tidbit is about 1, 000 calories. Low-cal alternatives are always available, if you seek them out, or ask.
The buzz: Because of the "buzz". This is an extremely dangerous practice.
Do people dread cocktail parties because of what they do to their weight or see them as free food now?
Funny: I'm not sure what you're asking. Some people dread cocktail parties and some don't. For those who do dread cocktail parties I would imagine that the reasons are varied.

Is mixing probiotics homemade drinks with alcool in a cocktail dangerous in any way to your health?
Want to reconsider?: Alcohol kills bacteria--that's why they swab your arm before drawing blood from it. If you mix the bacteria from your probiotics with an alcoholic beverage, what do think may happen to those otherwise beneficial living bacteria?

Is drinking about 3 cocktails a night harmful for your health? Each cocktail has about 1 shot of 40 proof alcohol?
Yes: Moderate consumption is considered 1 drink daily for women and 2 for men. Drinking only once a week but consuming all 7/14 in one day does not count and would be considered binge drinking. Women are more susceptible to alcohol in its short term and long term effects and there are genetic non-gender differences also. Aging and addition of RX meds like cholesterol meds puts more stress on the liver.
