    Please don't de-anon, I have friends on here :yep:

    I started uni this October, and I'm kind of new to the whole drinking thing... so I've been sticking to beer - usually 2 to 3 pints.
    If it helps, I'm a girl and I weigh 115lbs.
    What I need to know is what this translates to in spirits, i.e. how many shots, cocktails, etc. And I want to start on vodka, but I don't know how much I can take! Please help :o:

    I should mention that after said 2-3 pints, I find it harder to walk straight, and I'm pretty sure I'm a bit more aggressive to (hence I want to make the switch to another tipple).

    Just drink vodka and coke until you feel tipsy. I'd recommend having 2 or 3, and drinking fairly slowly so that you have more time to realise how much of an effect the alcohol has had on you.

    Generally speaking, one shot or spirit or one small glass of wine is worth half a pint of alcohol. However, remember that spirits usually go down much faster than beer. Cocktails are, generally speaking, any amount of alcohol from 2 - 6 units in a glass, just read the menu and watch it being poured.
