This is one that every working DJ who drinks has had to deal with: being shoved discounted and/or free liquor every time we work means we can end up drinking way too much sometimes. While free drinks are great, remember that like the other staff members at the venue, you are there to perform a service. When you’re shit-faced, even if you’re experienced at being shit-faced, everyone can tell, and yes, they are judging you for it. By all means have fun at your sets, and if you’re turning up, turn the hell up—but not every instance of you playing some records qualifies as a reason to get hammered, otherwise you might find that yung shortcut to alcoholism.
