Want to Drink Less Alcohol? Just Use A Smaller Glass!

But does this really work?

If you don’t want to get too drunk this weekend, try sipping your beer out of a shot glass.  Seriously, it might work.  

A new study in the U.K. found people tend to drink less if they use a smaller glass.

They tested it with wine in 260 households where people drank at least two standard bottles of wine each week.

Some were given 12-ounce glasses to use, and some got 10-ounce glasses.  And the ones with the smaller glasses drank almost 7% less per month.

Another thing that worked was buying smaller bottles.  When people bought half-size bottles of wine, they drank an additional 4% less.
