    That's why you drink water between drinks, though.. or eat something.. or that's what I do at least. Just cause you get tipsy doesn't mean your whole logic is thrown out the window.. or, at least mine isn't. I'm not sure about other people, but I think it maybe it's cause they just wanna look cool in front of friends or something.. so they forget about their limits? I dunno. Maybe I'm just cautious.

      It depends on what you drink. But generally speaking, those who throw up from alcohol consumption are usually those who thought they could handle more drink than they could because they were already drunk. Or, like you said, they're trying to impress everyone. Either way, I don't think there are many people who actually aim to puke from drinking too much.

        Oh well, then I guess I dunno. I don't blame the alcohol, though. I'm a lightweight and get tipsy after 1 or 2 beers (after eating) but I pace myself. But I know there are people who purposely try and get absolutely shattered when on a night out. They're more likely to puke their guts out. So.. *shrug* to each their own.

          I've found that mixing drinks always makes me more liable to throwing up tbh. In that I hardly remember a time where I threw up without mixing them. If I stick to one thing all night I find I remember it better the next day, have a lighter hangover, and don't throw up.

            Pacing yourself with alcohol is called being sensible, haha. I know for a fact that if I know I'm going to be drinking on a night out, my attitude is more like "LET'S GET WASSSSTTTEEEDDD". I personally prefer to get high than get drunk on nights out though. But like you said, each to their own.

            I wish more people would pace themselves.

            I hear about my friend's step sister who thinks she needs to drink before meeting friends to "catch up" since they went out before she met up with them, who then gets blackout drunk and lost in Oakland late at night, causing everyone she was with to panic and call everyone they can think of to find her and causing all of them to panic, too, and I worry. And despair.

              The thing about alcohol is if you dont drink too much, you probably wont do anything you wouldnt ordinarily. I dont usually get drunk because alcohol makes me very sleepy so even after one glass I dont usually want more, I just want to take a nap.

                Then with that sort of attitude.. how can anyone blame the "badness of alcohol" when they have that mindset before even getting drunk?

                  I know people can get really drunk and do stupid things sometimes.

                    I don't really drink alcohol either, doesn't really appeal to me. Whiskey and any other alcoholic drink that can make my chest burn is pretty good though and it's really the only reason I would want to drink.

                      I've never tried Whisky before.. One of these days I'll give it a shot.

                      Edit: Oh god, no pun intended..

                          Actually, on New Years Eve I had two and a half drinks and wasn't even tipsy. Then again this was over a period of like 8 hours so even 3 drinks in that amount of time isn't gonna do anything haha..

                              Well initially, the idea is to get drunk and have a good time. But on occasion (and for some people, regularly) there can be repercussions caused by drinking too much. Whereas with other drugs and substances, you don't usually get that.

                              Don't get me wrong. If I get too drunk whilst I'm out, I'd blame myself first and foremost.

                                I really havent tried many drinks. Ive had some wine and beer which I dont like too much. I tend to like kind of sweet drinks. Ive never had vodka or whiskey or anything like that. Ive had rum and coke, it's alright.

                                  I'm not a fan of rum and coke, to be honest. Tastes a bit too.. hmm.. liquorice-y? Baileys with milk on the rocks is nice. And I like lime-y drinks like Mojitos. Nothing too strong for me :3

                                    White Russians are my favourite, since they basically taste of milkshake and about 3 of them usually gets me adequately half-cut.

                                    MILKSHAKES? LINE THEM UP BECAUSE I LOVE MILKSHAKES

                                    I dunno though. I tried licking a sip of beer (if you can wrap your mind around that) and it tasted like Robitussin mixed with the smell of rubbing alcohol (well duh). No likey. BUT MILKSHAKES AND WINE COOLERS SOUND FUNNNNNNNNNN

                                    DARE doesn't work for me. My parents work better as a perpetual anti-drug commercial.

                                    Waste of time? It's science, so probably not.

                                    Well, it takes two to tango, as they say. Or maybe they don't say that.

                                    As much as I don't care for alcohol, I do love some of the names they have, like White Russian. It makes me want to create a line of drinks, starting with one I'd call Blood Thinner.

                                        There's a popular website knocking around the internet dedicated to video-game inspired alcoholic drinks. Actually pretty cool. But I'm no barista so I wouldn't really care to try and sample them myself, since I'd probably not get the balance right and end up making myself ill :c

                                          I like Gin and Tonic a lot, I dont have them often due to lack of ingredients for the drink, but it's refreshing. I've never had a Mojito but Id like to try it.

                                            Mojitos are pretty good; grasshoppers can be good too, especially frozen. Gin tastes like a Christmas tree to me. :x My mixed drink of choice is the hot toddy, and I prefer it with lemon and honey. Perfect for winter.

                                            Speaking of grasshoppers. The grasshoppers you get in the store are just as good as the thin mints that girl scouts sell, and much cheaper.
