    Interesting article, but I bolded my favourite line:

    I still count that as one drink. :weebz:

  3. When I was young and stupid I used to mix drinks like that.

    Mix? When I was young and stupid there was no mix. Just straight shots. Emphasis is on the stupid here. Very stupid in my case....

    IN college I'd dump half of a 32 oz. Gatorade container into some empty tupperware and fill the other half up with vodka or everclear. I did the same thing with OJ containers and then could walk around the dorm drinking screwdrivers all day. :love:

    Binge drinking at colleges is a serious problem resulting in more than a few deaths. I am anot anti-alcohol, but I do think that people sometimes underestimate the danger of over-consumption.

    I learned how to count drinks after I got alcohol poisoning. I built up a wicked tolerance over the course of one semester and the at a party -- where I couldn't watch the bottle getting empty -- I drank and drank and couldn't "feel it" until too late. I learned a lesson.

    I was sick for three days. I probably should have sought medical attention, but I didn't want to get in teh troublez.

  17. Yeah, I learned how to pace myself after my 1st year or so. It's really just a matter of being able to ask yourself "do I really want to be more drunk then I am already?", I guess.

    A big part of the problem is the competitive mentality; so many people are drinking with the intention of getting fucked up, trying to consume as much as they can handle, as quickly as they can handle it, etc. It can be like a drinking game, even when it isn't.

    Yeah. Macho drinking bullshit is fun. My buddy and I used to pride ourselves on being able to drink most anyone under the table. It's a useful skill sometimes, but really not worth feeling like crap all the time or developing dependence issues or all the other fun bonus gifts.

    How many drinks is that suppose to be? It seems like one.

    Oh, I still can do it but I choose to exercise that power a lot less frequently than I did from 1998-2005. I was still young and in that "if you want to rock you need to do drugs and act like a dumbass" phase. Now I simply drink to excess out of necessity. :weebz:

    If you fill that blue cup to the halfway (or 3/4 way...) with hard liquor you're looking at about 6-8 shots.

    That is why I mentioned the stupid attached to my comment. Every year you hear about a few people dying from overdrinking during rush week or some other college festivity at either CU or CSU. A guy from my high school died my junior year from over doing rum.

    My stupid drinking took place in the military rather than college. Lots of young servicemen with very little to do, plenty of spare cash, and no transportation is a bad combination.

    my alma mater's drug/alcohol motto was 'non loco parentis'

    very much "don't ask, don't tell, don't be stupid"

    it seemed to work for them.

    My school did the exact same thing, and they were very up front about it with the parents, basically, "if you want a babysitter enroll them somewhere else". You could have a keg, 12 members of the opposite sex, etc, in your room and as long as you weren't disturbing your neighbors, hey go nuts ...

    Learning moderation is something that more people ought to do. That class is a good idea

    I totally didnt get the point of this until i realised the US legal age for drinking is 21.

    I know its normal over there but in Europe, as im sure you know, its 18. Its also fine for someone of say 16 or 17 to have a glass of wine as long as theyre in a restaurant.

    I cant imagine going to college/university without getting plasterered every now and then.
