Drinking? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hello all,

    I have a silly question! So my family has a history of high tolerance to alcohol, but it was my 18th recently and wanted to see what being drunk was like. I've drank a very little here and there, but never in excess.

    On my 18th, I had two vodka and cokes, one (double) white rum and coke, one dark rum and coke, and two 6% cider cans.

    Is that considered a lot of alcohol for one evening? I was not even tipsy, let alone drunk; yet my friend (of same height and figure) got veryyyy tipsy on one vodka and coke and one cider.

    Is this normal? Anyone else having trouble getting drunk haha?

    My second time drinking properly a few nights ago I managed 6 cans of cider + 3L of strong rum and coke + some other crap I don't remember. I remember my first time I had 5 cans before I was out of it. Saying that I am fairly slim built and so it can hit me fairly hard.
    The amount you consumed was just over 10 units which is actually not too bad by legal guidelines for an occasional thing
