“You know you limit and you drink within your limit and ensure that you follow the right crowd, and some of these night clubs, their operating hours are up till 5 in the morning. It doesn’t mean that you stay in the clubs till 5 in the morning, you know your limit and once you know that it is enough, you go home.”
