When going out on a stag to end all stags you may be rather worried that you won’t get back alive, or at least in one piece. Stags are one of the most unforgiving events in any mans life, so you must make sure you know what you’re getting into before venturing out into foreign territory. He we discuss some of the key tips to surviving a mental stag, and what may be required of you.
Do As You’re Told
This may sound a little bit backward to some of you, but you must remember that if you don’t do as you’re told, your punishment for not complying will be far greater than what they wanted you to do in the first place. You should always think that it can always be worse, because for the most part it can. They are less likely to be harsh if you’re being a good boy.
Don’t Get Mad
This has a similar notion to that of complying as if they know how to naff you off they will do everything in their power to do just that. They will want a big reaction from you, so try to blank them a bit. If something bugs you just bite your tongue, keep calm and swiftly carry on. If you don’t you are likely to hulk up at some point in the trip, and it won’t be pretty in the slightest.
Prepare For The Worst
Preparation always has been, and always will be, the key to getting out the other side. You need to make sure you have more than enough money on you, but kept away from the others so they don’t make you spend it all. You also need to make sure your travel insurance is up to scratch and that you are carrying a small medical kit and have the numbers of all the local emergency services.
Trust No One
Being a stag the chances of the lads getting you drunk off your rocker is almost certain, and you may be quite impressionable in your less than capable state. They will have planned most of the trip themselves in a way that is designed to annoy you on all levels, so just try and look out for number one. Try and make sure you have a head count at all times to make sure there’s no ‘funny business’.
Stags are meant to be fun, but you also need to make sure that your life isn’t being made a misery of. Always make sure you have everything you need and more, and be sure to stick to what you know.
