Advice for Drinking (kind of urgent)

DJ-99DJ-99 Registered User regular
edited January 2007 in Help / Advice Forum
In 3 hours from now I have to drink two 40's as fast as possible. I'm a pretty terrible drinker. I weigh about 190, and I'm not worried about how drunk I'll get, but I'd like to minimize the vomiting while still trying to drink these things as fast as possible. Although, I am fully committed to vomiting at least a couple times.

If I do it in under an hour I won't feel completely embarrassed.

Any tips? Should I just plunge in and drink as much as I can as fast as possible, or would I do better in the long run to pace myself? Breathing techniques? Anything?

    Are you doing Edward 40-hands? That's where the 40s are duct taped to your hands and you have to finish both of them before you can remove them. If that's the case, wear sweatpants and loose boxers. Trust me.

    Just drink them as fast as you can without gagging. The alcohol absorption rate of your body is slow enough that it won't matter that much if it's a half an hour or an hour - you'll still probably be crawling drunk afterwards.

    Yeah I was thinking about wearing JUST some loose shorts, so I could pull the old kneel-and-pee, but it's below freezing so I'm just going to try to tough it out without having to piss.

    I imagine that yeah, I'll be totally wasted afterwards since it's malt liquor. If it were just beer it wouldn't be so bad. That's why I'm planning on throwing up at least twice, probably, but hopefully not too much more than that.

    Is it best to have any food in my stomach? Like I said, I'm not THAT concerned about how drunk I'll get. I think having food will absorb some of the alcohol, but it will also probably make me feel sicker.

    Make sure you eat something between then and now. Nothing worse than throwing up nothing but slightly-more-bitter alcohol. And drink lots of water before you go to bed.

    Ah yes, Edward Forty-hands. Do you vomit from the alcohol or the taste? If it's the alcohol, make sure you've got food in your stomach (eat a good meal, but not too big, a couple hours before you begin; milk is also supposed to help inhibit the flow of alcohol into your bloodstream), and take it slower.

    If it's the taste, I find breathing out before taking a drink reduces gas buildup, letting me drink faster, and letting you get it over with quicker.

    Why are you doing this? Is this some sort of speed drinking thing?

    Google informs me that 80 fluid ounces is about 2.3 litres, and wiki tells me that the high end of human stomach capacity is about four litres. You should be able to do it all in pretty much one go, but it's sure as hell not going to be comfortable. You will also almost certainly vomit very soon after. This is actually probably a good thing, as you really don't want all that alchohol to hit you that fast, especially if you're not a big drinker. How strong is this stuff? I can find references to "colt 45" which seems to be about the strength of a medium to strong beer (7-9% abv.).

    That said, I strongly advise against this.

    EDIT: spelling

    I've heard food, at least certain kinds, just makes throwing up worse, so I'm still not totally sure if I'm going to eat or not.

    But yeah I'll be sure to drink plenty of water before bed.

    You're gonna get fucked up. I drank 3 24oz cans of Old English and vomited everywhere (thats 72 oz). Best advice. Drink as fast as you're comfortable with. Hopefully you'll vomit some from the sheer volume of fluid you're consuming. Then maybe you won't die from alcohol poisoning.

    I think this probably has more to do with the type of food. Spaghetti? Unpleasant to throw up. Recently chewed carrots? Unpleasant.

    Oh, I'd eat. I'd eat a greasy deep fried pizza 2 hours before. Then just hit it as hard as possible, down everything and then throw up like a lunatic.

    Starting to drink directly after vomiting is not something I enjoy at all.

    Well I'm going it for a pledge event. Obviously I don't HAVE to pledge this fraternity, but I am, so in a sense I have to do this thing.

    And I won't be vomitting from the alcohol really, just the volume of liquid in my stomach. I haven't had soda in about 5 years, so beer generally makes me feel queasy, even if it's just one. 80 ounces of malt liquor just isn't going to fit in my stomach without at least some of it coming back up.

    No. A 40 refers to a beer bottle that holds 40 ounces. Often times malt liquor comes in 40s as you only drink it to get drunk, but a 40 can be any beer. Its just the size of the bottle.

    if you had the time, you would want to make yourself a beer bong

    it's like a tube that goes over the bottle noze and another tube that goes through the side of that tube to the bottoem of the bottle. Allows you to shotgun bottles in a couple seconds

    Vomit early. Vomit often.

    Seriously. The earlier you start to get it out of yourself, the less of it's actually absorbed into your system, the more likely you are to be able to stand up afterwards (or at least tomorrow).

    Don't fight the urge to boot. Go for distance. Come up laughing.

    You'll be golden.

    Or pledge a different frat that isn't so booze-oriented.

    Yeah, that's what I'm going for. I'd like to be able to get through at least 20 ounces before having to boot, though. That shouldn't be too hard. I'll definitely rally though.

    Eat now, eat a significant amount. About 45 minutes before the event, eat some more.

    You want your body to have lots of non-alcohol shit in it when you do this. It'll reduce how drunk you get. If you can manage the "pissing without hands" thing, drink a bunch of gatorade or powerade, too, so that you've got a bunch of electrolytes in your system.

    Oh sounds found. Listen here, make yourself puke when you start feelin a lil bit sick. Too bad you can't gag yourself, because thats the safest way to go about this. While you are drinking eat shit that will soak up the alcohol. Drinking on an empty stomach is NOT a great idea. But when you eat make sure its something that wont hurt when coming up. Last time I vomited I threw up nachos and good god my throat hurt for the next 4 days.

    On a side note, when I was about 19 I drank 2 40s of Colt 45 and fell down the stairs at my parents house. My dad had to pick me up and carry me downstairs. It was quite embarrassing!

    Fattier foods tend to inhibit the absorbtion of alcohol. Think of cheese, fried foods, etc. stuff that you won't mind throwing up chunks of.

    Not exactly the question in the OP, but once the puking comes (which it probably will) start with the water, you can drink some more alcohol if you want, but a hangover is mostly due to dehydration.

    One night of binge drinking does not an alcoholic make.

    Hell, my senior year of college, I drank 4 nights a week. Then, after college, I quit for, like, six months, and now drink maybe once every two or three months.

    I'm actually going to second this. It would be a good way to turn the tables on a group of people who are, apparently, torturing you for their own amusement. Just make sure you tell them *after* they've panicked for a bit, but *before* they start summoning the emergency services.

    I expect I'm stretching the limits of H/A acceptability, so I'll reiterate: Eat food, vomit if you feel sick, make sure you seriously rehydrate afterwards.

    If it's malt liquor (5-6% alcohol), you're consuming about the equivalent amount of alcohol of 8 shots of vodka.

    Edit: Seriously people I'm fucking sick of this shit. I actively despise alcoholics, I actually had to live with one for a full year, a year in which I had no chance to take any vacations out of town to escape it. And yet I'm able to be reasonable about alcohol and accept that just because people like to party it doesn't mean they're going to start shitting blood all over the place or lose motor-functions to the point where even when they're sober they can no longer walk, they fucking shamble. Yes, like a zombie. Some of you guys may have actually seen what alcoholism is and does to people, I'd venture most of you haven't, so shut the fuck up. If someone makes a thread about how to survive drinking at a party and you have some sort of retarded moral opposition to people drinking, go bitch about it in your youth-group or something. No more moralising at people for going to parties, it's fucking retarded, it doesn't fucking help anyone, and it fucking pisses me off because you have no idea what you're even fucking talking about!

    uh, as a guy who really enjoys drinking at parties, this is moronic. You're inexperienced at drinking and you've allowed someone to pressure you into binge drinking?

    When you binge drink, you vomit and/or pass out, sometimes not in that order. When you've passed out and thrown up, you're at a huge risk of choking on your own vomit.

    There is also a risk of alcohol poisoning, not to mention doing something stupid and dangerous while drunk, like playing in traffic or starting a fight with someone twice your size who collects knives.

    You if you wanna drink, it should be within your limits and for your own amusement.

    I guess you've already gone and done this. Here's hoping you're alright.
