    ...Where you just can't get drunk?

    So before the hockey game tonight (we lost to Yale 5-2 by the way :( ) I had about 6 shots within the hour. Normally this would get me fairly drunk, as I don't drink all that much. Even at college I probably drink less than once a week. But I was not very drunk at all.

    So the game ended, and I'm sitting here shaking the whole dorm listening to bass tracks to test out my subwoofer, and waiting to go to the concert at Java house. I plan to arrive fashionably late, around 11 ;) I just had maybe 8+ shots in less than an hour. That alone would get me pretty drunk, add that to the 6-ish 1/1.5 hours ago and I should be trashed. But nope, I hardly feel drunk. After 14-16 shots, I would expect to feel something, and I normally would.

    Anyone else have this happen from time to time? I just don't get it. It is not like my biology and tolerance to alcohol could have changed tonight. Is it a mental thing? Has this happened to you before? Anyone have a medical explanation for this? I know it has happened to me before, I just don't get it.

    If I'm standing and drinking, I can throw back a ton.

    However, as soon as I take a seat, I'm fucked and it hits me like a brick to the face.

    Sounds like what could have happened to me. I went to a halloween party last semester, and drank about 8 cups of juice/everclear mix(probably 40/60juice mix), then crashed another party and stole about 5 beers from some chick's fridge. I didn't even feel a buzz that night.
    It's either the standing thing, or the corpse paint I wore. I was so grim.

    yeah. every once in a while itll take me a 6pack to get smashed. usually a fifth of strong vodka or everclear does the trick. but every once in a while i'll down a whole liter of vodka and be like "wheres the fridge? i need more bitches!" and go around and start punching girls and taking their drinks for the rest of the night. dunno why though, i've long searched for an explanation so i can maximize it to my advantage (ie high tolerance at big parties to impress people, low tolerance with friends to save money on booze)

    I never really over drink, last night I had some Mad dog, then some vodka. The guy said it was like 5year old vodka and it was strong as fuck. I didn't feel much.

    I don't think I've ever drank that much liquor in such a short time and been sober. Although a few times I've drank myself sober. I never believed that could happen but it did to me a few times.

    Sounds like what you need is an alcohol enema.

    :p

    all the time

    last time I was in montreal (spent $300 in a night :( ) I got drunk at my friend's house, then sobered up by around midnight, hit the bar, drank 3 pitchers which had no effect, then went back and started drinking tequilla, vodka, and rum to no avail. eventually I got a bit of a buzz back on but it took quite a bit.

    take a muscle relaxer with your alcohol, it helps.

    Water intoxication is more risky. Be like that college kid who recently died.

    that happens to me sometimes. if i want to get drunk, and i plan ahead, i usually just don't eat a lot before. that way i don't have to drink as much, 'cause i don't really like booze, and if i puke it's not nearly as bad as on a full stomach (had a bad experience).

    Yeah, I once split a bottle of vodka with my buddy in a single gulp and didn't even get a slight buz. And so ended my college drunken days, as that scared me pretty bad... :shock:

    sometimes I do, a couple of parties I remember going to, drinking about 10 shots and knockin back maybe 4 beers, and not really bein drunk. not even really buzzed.

    I think it had more to do w/ my tolerance level, my mental state (kinda didnt feel like getting trashed), and the rate at which I drank.

    its ahrd for me to get drunk, bfcecause I've had some sloppy nights before, and I think i kinda limit myself. like Ill be drinking, and Ill pace all of my sips,drinks, shots to ensure I don't get drunk, maybe buzzed. I think its some kinda subconscious thing
