Just drank a heavy beer in front of tv, I don’t drink much. It got to my head fast, feeling pretty happy, it always happens when drinking alcohol.

Yeah, I do but I drink like a single one of those tall cans maybe 2-3 times a year and that's it so my tolerance is really low.

I take lots to get drunk, it's weird it's like a genetic thing. Like at least five cans of 7.5% proof cider minimum.

It's really expensive and embarassing lol, having to go into a shop and buy that much cider. I'd much rather just have a nice ale or two.

I don't think so, I've only been properly drunk once.

Probably now I would because I don't drink anymore. I've had situations in the past though where I was drinking quite a lot of heavy stuff and nothing seemed to happen. I think I was manic at the time though and it was pretty weird.

I drink slowly, so I don't really get drunk. I'll typically drink something over the course of about 30-45 minutes or so, and stretch that out over a four hour period of time. By the end of the night, I will have had 5-8 drinks. I could drink more if I really wanted to, but by that time the drinks start to taste bad and I start feeling tired.

I imagine if I were to drink it all at once, I would be stumbling all over the place. My days of shooting shots of alcohol, or chugging beer are long gone.

I think I have a good tolerance to alcohol, but drink more responsibly these days. I drink slowly and don't mix my drinks. If I were to down shots and drink doubles I imagine I would be on the floor.

I'd like to imagine myself as a classy red wine drinker 😉

Getting drunk fast is a choice you mostly have to drink fast, but the results are variable depending on conditions, regular drinking increases tolerance, general health, tiredness levels, hydration levels if you've eaten anything recently & weight/size play a large part, it's not an exact science.

No. But I drank rather very slowly. I mostly sip.

No way..jose. I've metabolized alcohol to the point of not *feeling drunk on one drink. Probably a sign to stop or at least cool it.

Hmmm. I don't know about drunk but alcohol doesn't agree with me and if I drink even a small quantity of it, I start feeling pretty bad pretty quick. My system is kinda like that. Small quantities of just about anything will manifest in how I feel in short order. I sometimes take small quantities of NyQuil when I have a headache because it helps when nothing else will. The recommended dose is 30ml. If I were to take the recommended dose, I'd be feeling the aftereffects of it for 2 days. So I take maybe half an eyedropper full of it and feel it's effects almost immediately. I took the full 30 ml dose once and was still feeling lightheaded and not with it at 4pm the next day when we went to Costco for groceries.

I used to have a friend who would come over and bring bottles of Mad Dog 20/20 (which he drank. Not me). Once he left a couple of unopened bottles and I was in the mood to experiment just to see if I really was as sensitive to alcohol as I thought I was.

To put it mildly, it was one of the worst things I ever did. I drank at least half a bottle of it before I started to feel it and ended up passed out in the hallway in a pool of red vomit (the drink was red). I really can't remember much about what I did after drinking it but I never drank anything but beer after that (and only one can on any given day). Awful stuff.

I had one beer last week which I hadn't had in a while. I noticed even that caused me to be noticeably more irritable.

As an alcoholic my tolerance is all mucked up. Depending on what I'm drinking it could take ages for me to catch a buzz even. Beer does nothing for me unless I'm throwing them back, presumably after getting them for free.

Yes, because I rarely drink. Two beers in a short amount of time gets me buzzed. Been over two years since I've had any alcohol. Tried to give it another chance as an adult for a social type activity, but just don't like it.

To be fair that stuff is legendary for making people sick. There's a reason it's like $3 a bottle lol. Had it a couple times as a teenager, stuff is vicious.

I don't drink very often, and really haven't built up a tolerance towards it. Yet it does take quite a bit to actually effect me.

Idk. I’m sure that I’d be a mean drunk since my personality is bad so I will never drink.
I sort of felt like I'd be that way before I first got drunk, but strangely I'm a "happy" drunk. Or at least I tend to laugh a lot at stupid things or seeming nothing at all.
