    I got home and decided to crack open a bottle of tequila beer and already I feel woozy and fuzzy

    Is it normal to get so drunk quickly?

    Have you drunk alcohol before?
    All the time. I've been drinking for over 5 years. I've had many heavy nights in my lifetime. Especially first year of uni. I don't know why I'm still a light weight, it baffles me.

    Are you on any medication or anything?

    No I'm not. Is it possible that my liver isn't functioning well?

    "slim", less bloody in your body, higher alcohol content per ml of blood than other people for the same amount of alcohol ingested. I figure that the first ~40kg of someone's weight does very little for their alcohol tolerance, and everything after that increases your tolerance. It's just a conjecture though - I'm no doctor.

    It completely depends on what you've had to eat that day, how tired you are etc. Some days I can drink 3 pints and not feel a thing, others I barely get through a bottle of beer before I feel tipsy. If you're concerned then go to see your Doctor. Honestly though, after 5 years of drinking I think that you'll be fine. Lots of people spend their whole lives getting smashed every other day and they're fine for (comparatively) a very long time.

    If you're on the pill? that will get you more drunk.

    What's your ethnicity? - Because of history and technology (purification of water), Europeans and Africans have a higher tolerance to alcohol than say, East Asians. - I'm not racist, the study of these phenomina is called pharmacogenetics.

    body weight and body fat content will affect it.

    Before you go out drinking, have some complex carbohydrates and healthy oils.

    It does mean it's a cheaper night out for you when you do go out
