If you’re pregnant, you already know how the bills have a way of racking up. Between doctors’ appointments, prenatal vitamins, and all the other things you need to take care of yourself and your baby, it can be tough to find extra money for things like alcohol.
But just because you’re pregnant doesn’t mean you have to completely give up your social life. If you’re smart about it, you can still get drunk without spending a lot of money. Here are some tips on how to get drunk for free when you’re pregnant:
1. Ask your friends for their leftover alcohol.
If you have friends who like to drink, chances are they might have some alcohol left over from their own drinking sessions that they would be willing to give to you. Just make sure that the alcohol is unopened and stored properly so that it’s still safe to drink. You don’t want to risk getting your baby sick with unsafe booze.
If your friends are alcoholics, they might not be the best people to ask since they’re more likely to finish all of their alcohol before you even get a chance to drink it. But if you have friends who are just social drinkers, they might be more willing to share their leftovers with you.
2. Attend free wine tastings.
Wine tastings are a great way to try out different kinds of wine without buying a whole bottle. Many times, these tastings are free or very cheap. Try to drink as many different kinds of wine as possible so that you can get a good variety.
The goal here is to get wasted without spending any money, so don’t be afraid to take advantage of free wine tastings!
3. Ask homeless people for a swig from their jug of wine.
This one is a bit risky, but if you’re desperate for some wine and don’t have any money, it’s worth a try. Just be careful not to get too close to them or take too big of a swig, as you don’t want to risk getting sick.
4. Beg for change and use it to buy alcohol.
This one is a bit of a last resort, but if you’re really desperate, you can try begging for change from strangers. Once you have enough money, use it to buy cheap alcohol from the grocery store or liquor store.
5. Go on a booze cruise.
Many cities offer booze cruises, which are basically parties on boats where you can drink all you want. These cruises can be a great way to get drunk for free (or very cheaply). Just be careful not to get too drunk and end up overboard!
6. Dress like a clown and get free booze at a circus.
If you’re pregnant and have a good sense of humor, you can try this one. Dress up like a clown and see if you can get free booze at the circus. It’s worth a shot!
7. Get a job as a bartender or waitress.
If you really want to get drunk for free, your best bet is to get a job as a bartender or waitress. Is it stealing if you take a nip when no one is looking? We say no!
8. Get a job at a brewery.
If you love beer, this one is for you. Getting a job at a brewery will give you access to free (or very cheap) beer. You might even get to help make the beer, which is a bonus!
9. Turn your house into a bar.
This one is a bit of a long shot, but if you’re creative and resourceful, you might be able to turn your house into a bar. This could be a great way to make some extra money while getting drunk for free!
10. Join a fraternity or sorority.
Fraternities and sororities are known for their parties, which means they’re also a great place to get drunk for free. If you can manage to get into one of these organizations, you and your fetus will have access to all the alcohol you could ever want!
These are just a few ideas on how to get drunk for free when you’re pregnant. Be creative and resourceful, and you’ll be sure to find a way to get your hands on some free booze!
