I feel drunk as a skunk after two medicinal drinks, hot water, honey, brandy and honey. I have the sorest throat and this is a relatively natural remedy. Is tolerance to alcohol a genetic thing? I'm fine until I stand up!

I don't know now how I used to enjoy getting drunk in night clubs,back when London had some left of course. How did I navigate the club, the people, the music, the walk to the tube the ride home, the walk home... how did I keep my job going out with my team?! Do you loae ability to deal with it if you don't drink for a while or is it practise makes perfect?

I don't really drink alcohol at all. But, sometimes, I do like the occasional fruity cocktail. And it doesn't take many of them to get me tipsy. I don't know if that's because I'm not a regular drinker or maybe it's because of my small frame. I'm 5'1" and (when I'm not pregnant) quite small. I wouldn't say I'm skinny, just petite. Though we'll see what happens once this baby comes. I don't think I'll have the energy to lose the extra weight, LOL.
My husband doesn't really drink either but he's built like a house. 6'4", muscular frame. (Though he's losing some definition on that muscle confused ). And despite not drinking that often, when he does drink he can drink like a fish and not show even the slightest hint of being drunk. So perhaps it's a size thing with you too. Are you vertically challenged like me?

I never drank much. Never had the long term taste for it, but I do have an enjoyment of an adult beverage at times.

Last night or night before, I had a Disaronno & peach. (The Simply Peach w/ amaretto over ice is stunningly good, and beats orange juice especially if you can't make or have a sour mixer.) I had one glass of this, and was just about to pass the fuck out.

I've always been a big and tall guy. And I've never been able to handle alcohol that well. I get really loopy, warm, and cuddly. Never mean, sad, or rapey. Just friendly. I've only been sloshed out of my mind drunk once or twice in my life, and that since turning 40 probably.

I think it's just your tolerance in general. I never did any sort of drug (I only smoked pot the first time when I turned 47), and rarely drank. I'm 53 and still have little ability to keep my pants on or my eyes open when I have more than few in me. Hell, those Smirnoff beverages in the bottles? Shiiiiit, GIRL BYE! I'm out after a few of those! It's malt liquor after all!
