    fun, it makes you a lot more confident and it makes you forget all of your worries-but at the same time it can intensify your emotions, making you extremely upset, angry or happy. Thats whats so dangerous about it, it provides an escape from life. i think it reduces your sensitivity as well, if you fall over it won't hurt as much as it would sober, and you also don't realise how cold it is when you're drunk, another danger. IMHO, if you're smart about it, you can have a good time. If you take it too far its really embarrassing and you'll feel like **** in the morning

    i find i also have to pee about 5 times an hour when im drinking :lol:

    well my first time ever drinking with my friends was at my friends 10/11th sleepover, we shared a bottle of beer between 8 of us and we were all acting smashed :lol:

    Pace yourself and dont mix your drinks and you should be fine.
    Dont stick to this then you could result in being melodramatic -
    Omg someone has spiked my drink or
    I think im dying call an ambulance!

    Have fun and drink because you want to not because you feel pressured ... and dont leave your drink around!

    Head is more spinny when younger or when you first start drinking...I actually think girls generally keep like this. For me my balance never gets affected and I don't get spinny head...I definitely get more cocky and obnoxious. Your friends actually become bearable to be around as well.

    The first time I properly got drunk was in the pub with my brother and his mates who were all older and better able to handle it (I was about 15 or just gone 16 I think). They insisted on buying for me and the night and the pints wore on.

    Everything went smoothly and I felt on top of the world until I went to stand up and quickly realised I was quite literally legless. Unwilling to countenance admitting that I had already had far too much, I had no option but to sit down and have another pint. I don't remember much after that, but I'm led to believe I had to be carried out of the pub that night. :cool:

    I've never really been affected by alcohol until I went out this Thursday just gone.

    My cousin and I started off in Wetherspoons, had 3 drinks there before going to the first bar and having my last two of the night (Skittles cocktail was the best drink of the night). I think I needed the loo about 6 times during the space of a couple of hours, but after that, I felt quite liberated. Unfortunately, it led to me accepting a cigarette (something which I do not think I will be doing again), but a couple of hours after my last drink I was well on the way to sobering up. No hangover the next morning, just an aching butt and legs from all the walking and dancing!

    Ended up sending my best friend a drunk text, trying to decline the Friday night invite to a club at home, cue me sending an apologetic one the next morning.

    I would have had a good time without the amount of alcohol I had, but I don't see my relatives often, and my cousin is going back to uni, so we decided to make the most of it. Definitely appreciated the toast once we got home!

    You feel like a boss until you fall over, break your arm and end up crying in A&E.

    To be honest everybody is different anyway when they're drunk. I get sleepy and piss loads although thankfully i've never pissed myself yet.

    My most memorable night was when I **** on my friends face who had passed out, then recorded him as he woke up. The transition from confusion to realisation was absolutely priceless.

    Looking back on my first time, I remember when it hit me I suddenly felt dizzy and very giggly, I couldn't stop laughing! But the thing I remember most about that night is the fact that I couldn't keep my balance at all and kept falling over. I also felt a lot more confident. Imagine if you just said everything that pops into your head, it's kind of like that - your censoring system becomes a lot less effective. So in my case it can make me more sociable and funny, but it can also lead to great embarrassment.

    I think when you've been drinking for a while its effects change. I don't have problems controlling my balance now unless I'm very drunk, for example, and I also have to be more drunk to have my inhibitions lowered to the same extent. I'm less giggly too. These days it's more like just relaxing if I'm drinking casually, or if I'm drinking to get drunk it's just a physical effect until suddenly I'm smashed. :/

    You kind of become less aware of whats going on, more sociable and more care free.
    Also you piss loads.
    I'm drunk right as I'm typing this, and this pretty much sums it all up. Just tonight I was sitting a a table of several girls, I was the only guy there and I was completely ok with it, Normally I would be pretty nervous but with the power of alcohol I socialised the hell out of them, like a boss. Got no pussy though. Shame, I feel I almost got with the birthday girl. I'm not going to remember this when I wake up this morning. So 'bjiofahfdksahfeja!'

    Depends on what end of 'drunk' you're at.

    Dizzy, sickly, confused and lethargic are the bad end of drunk.

    Impulsive, merry, bouncy and relaxed are the good end of drunk.

    If you plan to get drunk drink something weak. You don't know your limits and it's really easy to go way beyond them with strong spirits because you can drink a LOT before it starts to affect you.

    Towards the beginning of the night (after a few) I feel relaxed, my head sometimes feels a bit funny (but not in a bad way), and I become a lot more friendly and sociable, often holding good conversations with people I barely know about things like philosophy.

    Towards the middle of the night (often by this point I'm in a club) I will realise that if I don't keep drinking, I will quickly become sober again. So I drink a few more, in an attempt to keep myself at that ideal level of tipsiness and keep inhibitions as low as possible.

    Towards the end of the night, one of three scenarios usually plays out. Either I will have managed to keep myself at a good level for a while, and will be almost completely sober by the time I return home, or I will be pretty drunk but not too drunk to have lost all my wits. At this point I will feel the need to smoke (despite never having smoked while sober) and to eat vast quantities of fast food. The other scenario (if I have kept drinking and drinking and drinking) will see me think I'm fine until I am suddenly sick. I will then drag myself to bed/home, occasionally stumbling a bit, if I'm really out of it. I'll then wake up the next day feeling as though I've been repeatedly punched in the stomach and I'll swear never to drink large amounts of spirits again.

    So yeah, alcohol is a weird and wonderful thing.

    It's a bit like swimming.

    1) First you fight the water
    2) Eventually you just go with it
    3) It all becomes too much and you drown (metaphorically, or just in your own sick).

    Major points:
    Massive confidence boost in point 2.
    What you think becomes more of what you say.
    You think you're stable but you're not (see point 2).

    Imagine walking around with a dog on your back that keeps barking.

    Well, there's tipsy where you wanna dance, confidence is really high.

    Then theres hammered, where you don't remember anything the next day and you throw up everywhere, then you end with a dirty hangover.

    Oh and you tend to piss a LOT.
