My friends and I are gonna hang out on Halloween and I've decided I'm going to drink for the first time. They said they were going to get Mike's Hard Lemonade, and from what I've read, it's not really a "get drunk" type of drink. But could I get drunk off of it?

I'm 6'3 and 125 lbs., and the only other experience maybe similar to this would be me taking valium (and something else) before an eye surgery and getting high as fuck off of the calm-your-nerves medication

Sorry if I sound super dumb in this post. I grew up in a no-alcohol household and this is all new to me.

Mike’s doesn’t have any less alcohol than the cheap grocery store beer we drank in Oklahoma in the late 90s. Just relax and don’t think about it and you’ll catch a nice buzz.

When I was young I was wrecked on a couple rolling rocks and like two bacardi. The sugar is going to fuck you up more than the booze.

You can definitely get drunk off anything with alcohol in it if you drink enough, them shits have a lot of sugar though and you might get sick just from the sweetness

I’m a pretty big drinker. I can drink like 3 Mikes hard lemonade before a stomach ache occurs. I would recommend drinks with a lot less sugar. I also have a much higher tolerance I’m sure. Whatever you drink, ease into er bud. No need waking up in a bush with out your wallet, keys and pants.

Do you consider yourself a heavy drinker if you can drink 3 5% beverages before feeling stomach ache? This is very interesting to me. Am i missunderstanding something here or is the amount Americans and Europeans drink this different?

it'll do the trick. don't drink more than 2 per hour. that'll keep you with a nice happy fun buzz but not really drunk, which is what you want.

I’m sorry if I sound like a loser but could you explain the difference between a buzz feeling and a drunk feeling?

Considering how little you weigh, start off at a rate of 1 an hour and increase if necessary. There's bac calculators online that are somewhat helpful with predicting how drunk you'll get.

As a lightweight, the key to getting drunk for me is going slow and also drinking a good amount of water. I can pack away 2x as much alcohol without getting sick if I'm hydrated.


This is the sub for drinks, drinking and drunks. /r/Drinking supports the enjoyment of alcohol by people LEGALLY old enough to drink and NOT drive!
