    I know this girl who cant ever get drunk. It's like her body doesn't allow it or something. When she drinks a lot, she gets a little bit tipsy, but she still feels completely normal. How can this happen?

    Shes not on any medication except for birth control if that has something to do with it. Whats the deal?

    Well the real answer i think is she has a tolerance. Every person is different the way that the react (or dont react) to drugs will be different. For example one person could take 1g of mushies and be tripping while someone else needs 7 to feel the same effect.


    As for your friend what kind of drinks does she drink? If she is off drinking wine coolers, or some low proof alchie that could be a start. Try to get her to try something a little stronger. I would suggest 99 Oranges with Orange Juice. Very good. Or hell go with the good old Captin and coke

    I have a problem with drink too. All it does for me is that it distorts my vision and makes me sick (if I have too much). It doesn't relax me or make me merry or make me go insane. I think I've had my time with it. The only way I can enjoy drink now is a beer with a joint.Edited by: nature_boy_liam

    I should also point out that it works as a half-decent sedative.Edited by: nature_boy_liam

    She drinks wine mostly. Doesn't weigh too much at all, has no tolorance. Strange, dont you think? I'd smoke a joint with her, but she's got a big problem about all kind of drugs. Thanks dudes.

    I believe it has something to do with tolerance. We need more info to answer your question? Has she drank a lot in the past? How much and what does she drink when she does try to get past the tipsy stage? She should try something high in alchol content like Bacardi 151.The above members are right everyone depending on your ethnic past and bodies is different with every drug ingested into the body. It really can make a huge difference.

    I think it's all bull. EVERYONE can get drunk, it's not a matter of tolerance. And the whole weight thing is crap too - fat people get drunk the fastest, and fit people take a long time - weight/height has nothing to do with it. Also, nationality or ancestryhas nothing to do with it...come on guys, that's just stupid. She's just not drinking enough, or, she's making her own drinks and is making them very light. ANYONE CAN GET DRUNK IF THEY DRINK ENOUGH. End.

    actually 50% of the citizens of japan have flushing syndrome. this is
    an inherited trait associated with an particular enzyme deficiency
    which greatly reduces an individual's alcohol tolerance. a lot of
    native americans have it too.

    Fat people get drunk quicker?! No fucking way. I live in the land of alcoholics and believe me, the fatter they are, the more they'll drink. People who excercise and are fit get wasted way quicker from what I've seen.

    Classic example: Two of my best buddies, one is a big fat jolly giant, and the other is a lightning fast kickboxer. Fatty can drink him under the table ten times over.Edited by: nature_boy_liam

    My face will get red after two drinks, but it takes more to actually get me drunk.

    Personally i think alot of your tolerence has to do with genetics. Weight is a big factor....as well as being irish.

    I knew a girl that earlier this year I used to go clubbing with on
    weekends that had no tolerance...This girl would get literally DRUNK
    off of two smirnoff ice twisters. yeah thats right...twisters. they're
    like what 5% or 7% alcohol each? Pretty much nothing....



    ...drunk to the point where she started talking crap and not walking
    straight and not resisting to piss right outside my car in the club
    parking lot....(i once remember her saying we should fuck one day as
    she sipped her 2nd bottle). It was all around drunk-talking lol



    Therefor tolerances vary from person to person..sometimes GREATLY

    alright for one thing it is possible to fake like you are more drunk or
    less drunk than you actually are. another thing is it does have a lot
    to do with your background. us irish can drink and drink. native
    americans did not even have booze whatsoever like 500 years ago and
    they havent developed much of a tolerance to it. it also has soooooo
    much to do with weight and body mass. skinny and little people get
    drunk so much faster than bigger people. if you disagree you are full
    of shit.

    Asians tend to have a low tolerance for booze too. I dunno if I heard it here or something (bit stoned you know) but half the Japanese population has this condition where they get very drunk and exhausted off just a very small amount of alcohol, like two beers or something. Is that actually true?!Edited by: nature_boy_liam

    Weight does have to do with it Toria. If you sat down with a 24 box of beer and drank it with someone double your weight. Your gonna trashed a lot quicker than he / she is.

    A high tolerance can be a very frustrating thing, despite the fact that
    most guys will boast endlessly about how much they can drink... I
    am not braggin when I say that it takes 7-8 drinks in a short time
    period to get me a decent buzz, and I usually </span>don't get wasted</span>
    until I've killed a fifth, though I'm still decent enough to walk and
    talk at that point. That knowledge is very frustrating when I
    don't have enough money to buy a substantial quantity of alcohol so as
    to make it worth drinking... There are exceptions, however.
    151 hits me pretty hard, as it nearly doubles the speed at which I
    drink. I think time has a much greater effect than quantity, in
    fact, though that would depend on the person's metabolism. Either
    way, alcohol affects all mammals, and this girl just needs to get
    enough in her at once and she'll feel it as well.

    I don't like having to drink 8-10 beers in order to get a nice buzz. It leaves me feeling bloated and fat, let alone the fact that that amount of beer is about 1200-1500 calories.


    Therefore,I've made the move towardsmartinis. I can make 2-3 very strong martinis at home and get a cleaner and faster buzz, without the bloated-ness. Then I'll have a beer or martini every 1/2 hour or so to keep me hummin'.
