    I used to be able to drink quite abit, but now for some reason Ive gone off it. Whenever I drink now I just make that face like Im sucking a lemon and cough a little.

    I'm exactly the same. My alcohol tolerance has gone completly down- but thats because I don't drink regularly anymore (which is a good thing!). Is that the reason for you? Or have you just gone completly off it for no reason?

    I did tick it, it didnt work

    I dont know, I want to drink, but I did for a while drink alot, could that be the reason?

    I havent drunk in 2weeks until yesterday, it was the same. I found it hard to drink a double vodka unless I sipped it. Also my stomach feels a bit upset afterwards.

    If you can't drink to damage your liver perhaps you should try stabbing it with a rusty screwdriver?

    I think if we drink it alot we get used to it. And therfore we we stay off it for a while we lose the 'handling powers' for it. Or that happens with me anyway. I'd try weaker and less amount of alcohol if I was you.

    In a club that I went to the other day a single vodka and coke was £1.50 and a normal vodka and coke was £1.35 =P

    Therer are loads of reasons that you have lost your tolerance to alcohol, the most common is stopping binging. I used to drink a lot in my first year at uni, so much so that I couldn't taste the vodka in a double, but I went on antibiotics for 4 months and when I started drinking again I could taste even the smallest amounts. But it's not a bad thing, Im sure my liver is a lot happier now.

    Why do you see it as a problem?

    I don't have much tolerance for large quantities of alcohol anymore.

    That's why when I get in from a club I throw it all back up...

    I don't think laying off drinking causes us to loose our tolerance for it. Based on a few things I've read (and my own limited experience) I think that drinking a lot over time lessens our tolerance and a bunch of bingeing eventually kills it. Could it simply be a coincidence that this happened after laying off for a bit?

    Maybe its a sign your body has had enough of it? Just take it easy and lay off the drinks for a while, let your body repair itself.
