Office holiday party etiquette
Don't drink too much

Robin Abrahams adds that if you're in a workplace where people do drink a lot, get something like a rum and Coke or gin and tonic for your first drink, then stick to plain Coke or tonic after that. This way no one will know how much you're not drinking.
