It's your body chemistry.
maybe you just enjoy the company and being a little relaxed.
You probably have a high tolerance. Be careful and be grateful.
high tolerance, and if you work with solvents, like if you're a painter--then your body has enough enzymes to metabolize it at a faster rate
First and most importatnt, noone can FORCE you to "drink a lot" be careful with that. A lot of young people who don't feel the way they think they should fel when they drink or drug keep inreasing the intake until they DO feel it and that is often the beginning of an addiction. I agree with puck61. Be careful and be grateful.
We all have a different tolerance level
Having the experience of drinking just means you are probably used to the taste.
It might also be a matter of what kind of alcohol is best suited for you :S
I to have the same problem. I also have a high tolirance to pain medicine which i take for chronic pain in my back caused by a birth defect and degenerative disk disease. But i have never gotten any kind of high from it at all. Also i have to take twice the amount as normal people because of the high tolorance. When i was in the hospital for my back they gave me morphine and i continued to need more. The nurse and doctors were amazed.
The one nurse even said that and i quote " you should be a drooling bag of kittens now" but no the pain continued.
I would gladly go through any tests theyd like. As i am used to being poked and prodded.
Only i doubt there is a test for such a thing.
All i have to say is it seriously sucks having a severe chronic pain and not ae to find anything that works.
Sorry for spelling been up for 3 days back dosent let me sleep. And im also on my phone.
I found this post, because I was searching to see if anyone else was experiencing what I am. I rarely drink. Rarely = 1-3 drinks per event, 3-4 events per year. Recently, I got an urge to have a pina colada. I had one huge drink with about 3 times the recommended alcohol amount in it. Nothing. I just felt really full and bloated. I don't know what is going on. I took Chantix years ago for quitting smoking, and I wonder if that had something to do with it.
well is it very kind of you to drink with our friends , when you really dont drink and if there is nothing there for you , stop, tell you pals
and if they love you and are your friends, they dont want you to drink for no reason, some people feel so fine without the alka.
i am 813 years old,, drinking and smoking cigarettes is the the hardest thing to quit,, if they are you friends , they dont want you to drink or smoke,, i can quit, the most wonderfull substances i have ever known, but stupidly, cigarettes and drinking if you dont like it is the hardest thing to stop , only because you think your good friends expect that of you,,,,,,,,
Because your body can mobilize the amount of sugar and insulin your body is producing, while breaking down the stimulant in your system. Which means in layman terms. "You have a high tolerance to drinking heavily" Go clean for 40 days, then try it again. I guarantee 4 oz. will put you on your ***.
I'm also a little confused about the topic, I can drink for more than 6-12 hours straight, even when I rarely drink. I'll go through 24 beers, Whiskey, Vodka etc, I don't get drunk, I may become physically intoxicated, but my mental state doesn't change, and no I'm not joking or believe something not true, i've been to the doctor about it also, they agree somethings wrong, but can't figure out why alcohol doesn't cause me anything but physical intoxication and still I need to drink enough to make most people pass out and still i'm fine...I want to enjoy a drink here and there, but unable to feel how others do... :( makes me a little sad i'm unable to be honest
No matter how much I drink..I do not get drunk. If I try really hard ...all that I get is a buzz of few minutes that too doesn't give enough pleasure coz I know it;s not gonna last long. I hate it..it's waste of money, time and energy.
Well same here i can say it's not a tale cus i have the same issue dnt drink everyday bt whn i do i get buzzed then it goes away fast i keep drinking and want feel anything i thought it was my nerves or stress
i have somewhat of a similar problem too, i am not a drinker and seldom drink. I can't seems to get high, no matter how much i drink. I get red easily after 1 glass of beer, soon after i get itchy all over, feel warm at first then i get so cold that i shivering for quite some time. Yes i have vomited before because of motion sickness, but was still sober enough to walk straight and bring my drunk friends home. Yes some of these are symptoms of being drunk, but i could never get high and crazy. I end up being the one making sure everyone make it back safe. Another symptom i have is my hands get a little puffy and swollen, I think i may be allergic to alcohol.
Sounds like your allergic, or your skin's allergic as alcohol comes out of your sweat glands etc. I'm also slightly allergic, but i lose total feeling or extremely numbed sensations after just a sip, yet I can drink as much as i'd like..
I started drinking when I was 14 but now I'm in my thirties and alcohol doesn't seem to have the same effect as when I was younger. I even tried stopping for a while but no change when I do drink which may be once a month. We all adapt different to or habits good or bad.
may I ask, what affect does it have? and if little, why still drink? unless socially with friends.
my problem too , I drink like 0,5 liter of Vodka and I feel nothing NOTHING ,it's just drive me crazy ! I don't know what to drink to get drunk .
I have a high tolerance. Finished 1 Litre yesterday, even mixed spirits - had some whisky then few glasses of vodka then whisky but did not get too high unlike my friends who were dancing like mad and then they passed out. I was simply buzzed, that too by the end of the session only.
I'm 5 feet and 110 pounds. A girl! But I can drink a lot and be sober.
In the long run, this will damage my liver. So I drink heavy only once a month or two nowadays. Rest of the time I don't drink at all, whats the point of having those calories if u don't enjoy!
This has just Started happening to me in the last year. Well maybe after i had my son . He will be 2 next month. I used to get a buzz but never wasted. But the last 6 times I drank I think ok Im starting to feel it and it goes away.I dont drink much at all maybe once a month or every other. When my kids stay the night with grandma and grandpa it would be nice to have people over and catch a buzz but it goes right away:(. It wasnt like this before so i wonder what had changed
Last night I drank and after 8 shots of captain Morgan, I had not drank in 7 months. And have followed that same pattern for my entire adult life. Nothing happen. It was like i drank water. I am 5'9 190 lbs. Felt like captain america. To fast of a matabolism.
