    I Agree

    Unfortunately I don't know when to stop, so I carry on drinking until they throw me out.

    I prefer to be in that giggly, light stage of having fun and being in a stage to dance freely

    No Point...

    in my being drunk and vomitous. It's not fun for me. I currently detest vodka because of a recent, overindulgent Halloween, involving straight vodka, "sexy" costumes, and a pasties-clad bartender, who all, through no fault of their own, left me feeling lousy for not...

    Social Drinker

    It doesn't take a lot to get me tipsy (usually about one Irish Trash Can), and when I'm tipsy I get super lovey and enjoy snuggling with my husband and laughing with my friends. But when I cross the line from tipsy to drunk, I get really mean (like yelling and making accusations...

    I had fun tonight. My friend got drunk

    and threw up on her shoes. I just kept accidentally lock-in doors and turnin on/off lights. I also almost fell asleep with my pants half off but had I been drunk I would have cussed someone out and slept with someone's crush . She's fake and He was cute and funny.

    Giggly and Kissy

    I don't drink very often in my life anymore - that pretty much ceased when I left graduate school.  But, in our neighborhood there are several events that allow me to cut loose just a bit - our Progressive Dinner Christmas Party and the Annual Luau. The Annual...

    An 8 Year Old Could Probably Drink Me Under the Table

    Not that I have actually been in a drinking contest with an 8 year old. That's just an educated guess.  The line between tipsy and drunk, for me, gets crossed very quickly.  Though I haven't been in either condition in a while because drinking alone is...

    I'd rather remember what I did while partying, thanks.  No worries if it's a bit blurred, but I wanna remember.  So I'll stick to tipsy (even really tipsy!)  while stopping short of drunk.

    Different scenarios are possible.  Sometimes I take just one or a couple, just to relax. When I go for more, there is always a reason.  Good company is a big incentive.  Accidental encounters may do.  A naughty plan is helpful too. I may go for...
