|“I'm amazed at what an extreme reaction I had to drinking just a glass or two of wine.I was twice the limit in both cases! This has been an absolute eye-opener.”||“My readings confirmed the unpredictable way that drinking affects me.I was fine after one large glass but seriously tipsy when I had two smaller ones.”||“I'm astonished at my body's capacity to deal with alcohol, especially when I look at the results of the other women, who are bigger than me. It's been a real wake-up call.”||“I can't believe how high my reading was after just a couple of glasses of wine. I exercise a lot and stay in shape, so I thought my body would be healthy enough to cope. Clearly not.”||“I'm really surprised that I was over the limit after two glasses. I didn't feel any effect at all.'It has reinforced in my mind to never touch a drop if I'm going to use the car. “|
