On average, how much alcohol does it take to get drunk?Watch
I am going out with a few friends next week, and it is obviously going to entail drinking substantial amounts of alcohol, something I've never really done, I am concerned firstly about drinking too much and making a tit of myself, and secondly, potentially getting violent. I do not want that at all.
Obviously, at 10, a can of beer probably had more of an effect on me because I was smaller, but now I'm 18, is 1 or 2 pints likely to have too much of an effect to the extent I'm unable to control myself, I don't want to get to that point.
It'll do more than it will to most people if you've barely touched the stuff before, it'll go straight to your head, but it should still have very little effect.
Don't worry about it, you'll be fine.
Um, you should be able to drink a couple of pints (I assume you're male for some reason?) That said, given you obviously aren't used to it, stop as soon as you feel it, is my advice.
You should be able to have 4 or 5 without losing control and at least 8 before you start to get seriously drunk, assuming your male.
Mixing probably 5 or 6 drinks will get me there. Also, if you're a new drinker, don't do jagerbombs as (a) their revolting (but cheap) and (b) gives you a hell of a hangover
and as for the getting violent thing, it depends on the person. if someone usually wants to get out their pram and makes a scene, but are too scared to, then the alcohol will lower their inhibitions enough to start.
at an 18th last night I drank around 5 pints? didnt get even remotely drunk as i sort of spread them out over 4 hours or so.
Just drink what you are comfortable with.
If you never drink you will be fairly drunk off 3 pints.
im only small but i drank a silly amount last night without really ever hitting 'drunk' because i drank over a long period of time from about 5pm till 4am-ish, but i've been falling over drunk from drinking half that much in the past. You start to get a feel for it after a while OP, you'll work out your own personal tolerances, how quick and how much you like drinking etc. dont worry too much, just take it slow at first if yu dont want to make a fool of yourself. . .
