THE CONNAUGHT JOURNAL January 3rd, 1825

WHEN TO LEAVE OFF DRINKING
When you feel particularly desirous to have another glass – leave off, you have had enough.
When you look at a distant object, and appear to see two – leave off, you have had too much.
When you knock over your glass, spill your wine upon the table, or are unable to recollect the words of a song you have been in the habit of singing for the last dozen years – leave the company; you are getting troublesome.
When you nod in the chair, fall over the hearth rug, or lurch on your neighbour’s shoulder, go to bed – you are drunk.
