fluffy2097: Why would you want to increase your tolerance?


Especially since tolerance doesn't make you any more hangover-proof. In fact, since you have to drink more, it makes your hangovers worse. I can live with having to shell out for six $10 shots of whatever to feel drunk, but my liver can't, and it lets me know it for days afterwards.

Oh, for the days when two Solo™ cups of shiatty fraternity beer were enough to get me functionally wasted, and yet left me bright-eyed and bushy-tailed the next morning.

bulok: I suffer from what is called "Asian Flush" which means my body metabolizes alchohol faster than most. Unfortunately I get all the physical traits of being drunk (bloodshot eyes, flushed cheeks) without getting a buzz.
On the plus side, no hangover either. Because of this I cannot enjoy alchohol and I am always the designated driver.

sorry buddy, i'll take my chances with a drunk. ;-)

all stuff any self-respecting Farker already knows.

Ctrl + f "oatmeal"

Really? I'm the only one that knows to do this? A big bowl of steel-cut oatmeal takes forever to digest, and is super absorbent. Don't eat fats, sugars, or proteins if you're planning to drink. Go for whole grains, and people will be baffled as to how you're not blasted.

So you can waste money on buying more alcohol?

/oh right. alcoholics think destroying your liver is a contest.

And I'm winning!

fluffy2097: DeaH: Plenty of water is your friend. If you're not a regular drinker, drink enough to know your limits before you drink at any type of company event. I have seen many a career damaged early on by an open bar at a company event. And, though I know this is heresy on Fark, if you know you can't drink much without getting stupid-drunk, learn about beverages that look alcoholic but are not. I suggest club soda with a splash of cranberry juice and a splash of Rose's lime.

Or you know, just get a Coke and tell the alcoholics that you cannot enjoy them ruining their lives and livers if you are intoxicated too.

/When you're sober, the trainwreck that is an alcoholic at a party is so much more amazing.

i saw one alcoholic at the end of the night after most everyone else had passed out checking open beers for anything left, he then went into my friends kitchen and brought this bottle back into the living room, as i laid there i realized that he had not grabbed a bottle of booze like he had thought but in fact grabbed a bottle of Olive Oil...before i had a chance to let him know his error he took a couple of large gulps on it and figured it out himself.

/he spent the next couple of hours outside regretting that decision

try eating a stem and half a cap of magic mushrooms, you will be just as much fun as ever without being a drunken mess. and all the drunk characters will be completely entertaining. downside is your pupils look like saucers tho
