After almost a year of working at my job I've finally been called out for smelling like alcohol at work. I work in billing and sit at a computer all day. I'm so used to my job that being buzzed makes me work faster and more productively.

I know drinking at work is bad etc, but work is actually enjoyable right now and I'm doing great on my reports. How do you guys mask the smell of booze when you're drinking in public? Gum isn't working

It's in your breath. Like, from your lungs. It's really hard to cover. The main thing you wanna do is make sure you're not throwing your breath in their face. When you talk to someone, make sure you're not breathing in their direction. It takes practice and misdirection.

Obviously, neutral vodka smells the least, and a little distraction smell helps.

Honestly anon just keep a bottle of hand sanitizer on your desk or a small one in your pocket and when you start a convo lather da fuck up. If not just tell them you had a long night

That's honestly your only bet. I was a closet drinker hardcore and I experimented with EVERYTHING to mask scent. The fact of the matter is you probably smell alot worse then you think. Like "step out of your car" bad

I wonder this. I don't drink at work but at the least I will have been drinking 8 hours before. Can you still smell it the next day after you shower and brush teeth? I don't have a great sense of smell either so I assume I smell worse than I think I do. Like I work in a public facing job and a lot of times people say "fuck that guy stank of booze/weed/BO" and I never noticed.

Rub a stronger smell on yourself. Charcoal soap helps and then you add your choice of deodorant. Most important brush your teeth, eat some strong beforehand like vinegar

related, today my coworker was wearing some kinda "essential oils" to give him a strong smell to cover up the cigarettes he won't stop smoking as a server

so I was like why do you smell like grapefruit and he explained that

citrus-scented essential oils bro

I drink every night and a while ago the guy at the desk next to mine asked me if I drink or not, after we'd been sitting next to each other for two years. I'd been coming in hungover that entire time. Granted my job's not public facing but you might be good unless you're cutting it real close

Drink lots of water. Vodka. That should be the easiest way. If people walk by, drink from two bottles that look close to each-other. One mixed with amount of alcohol you drink, the other just water. Alternate these. Sometimes have one bottle on your desk. Sometimes two. Make them similiar but different looking. Stash one on the side of your desk in between . Water, telling you, will keep the alcohol smell from being very obvious. Gum will do nothing. Plenty of water will usually work well enough that you may only be noticeably buzzed.

If drinking vodka, keep a bottle of spray antiseptic (isopropal alcohol) on your desk with your water bottles. Make sure somebody sees you spray it on you keyboard etc every now and then. The water trick above in post, I couldn't smell associate drink but he would sure get drunk. Pleanty of water, no rum or whiskey. Cigarette smoking will somehow make drinking alcohol smell more noticeable by far.

Another guess, if you can burn incense make sure it gets into your clothing. The incense smell will reach a person before alcohol will and will overpower and or counter the smell of alcohol.

I have friends who swore by this method when they were alcoholics. One was a young guy 26 who was a psychiatry grad and worked as a case worker doing intake interviews. Dealt with people everyday. What he did was drink vodka, carried it around in a plastic water bottle, and ate one of those big gas station pickles as a chaser. People just saw it as a quirky. He said it completely hid any trace of alcohol smell from his breath, and that even his fiance who worked at the office with him couldn't smell anything other than pickle. He eventually got in a car wreck and everything came crashing down, but everyone was taken by complete surprise that he had a drinking problem.

Pickle backs are the perfect whiskey chaser so it makes sense it sort of covers up other booze smell. Damn I want one of those pickles now not gunna lie
