    I haven't touched any alcohol for 22 years now, but I can still remember very clearly the last time when I got drunk. It was on a beach, in the middle of the afternoon. I was alone and drinking a few bottles of beer, when suddenly an acquaintance of mine just happened to walk by, looking stunned about seeing me with a drink in my hand. I recall very clearly that I didn't feel embarrassed, but rather pathetic. I didn't offer any explanations, just made some small talk and was glad when he left me again. Then I sat there for a very long time, staring at the waves, asking myself where my life was heading... It was the last time I got drunk.
    What happened on your last day of intoxication?

    7 years for me. I got out because my body couldn't handle it anymore; I had complications with my liver at age 21. I never touched the stuff again, but that doesn't mean that I didn't think about or yearn during those early sober years. Because I could literally die if I came back to drinking, that made the choice of staying sober that much easier.

    The last time I got drunk was last Halloween. I went to a friend's Halloween party and we played beer pong and drank jello shots. It was fun and I didn't overdo it. As a matter of fact I woke up at 9 the next morning to get to work.

    The last time I drank was years ago. I never really liked drinking all that much but I did enjoy the part of getting drunk. It was a bit easier for me to give it up because I absolutely hated the feeling of hangovers.

    Not really drunk because I still am responsive during that time. I guess it was way back 2 years ago, when I was still in college. My friends and I used to drink after class and have fun bonding together.

    I still drink ocasionally, but its been 3 years since I've last got truly drunk. I am really proud of it and feel like pot helped me a lot on this path! I don't know about you guys, but it really helped.

    I get drunk or tipsy every weekend. The last time I actually got drunk was about two weeks ago. I was hanging with my family and we were having a good time. I especially love to drink when I am being social, because it makes me loosen up more. I had a minor hangover the next morning. I have had many problems in the past with getting too dunk and embarrassing myself. One time that I can remember is this one night when my brother had a party, and I got really drunk. It was about 4 years ago. I let my emotions get the best of me and I went crazy on my family because of issues I had with them. I got put out of the house that night and I had a lot of regrets. I had serious anger problems back then. It was a lesson learned for me. Even though I still get a little drunk these days, I try not to do anything that would make me feel embarrassed. I realized that I had to change my behavior when I drink and now I know my limits. I am focused more on having fun and not causing any drama.

    I haven't been drunk for about two years. I don't drink all that often, maybe a couple of beers once a month. Of course, things were different when I was at college but Ijust can't handle drinking like that any more.

    I, too, had emotional moments during my drunken years, that I preferred to forget. But unfortunately it doesn't quite work that way. It all comes back, if not immediately, then eventually. At one stage I collapsed after a few drinks at a New Year's party. It was a total overload of stress and things that I had suppressed for a long time. I ended up crying uncontrollably. I remember how a total stranger held me in his arms nearly all night. I never felt so comforted in my life, I also never saw him again. Life can be so strange sometimes...

    Should I feel left out? I have never been drunk, tipsy or any of those "wonderful" things. I have a half of a beer on the odd occasion just because beers are always in the house. I feel like I have not had one in about a year or so. Sometimes I'll sip on some wine when my husband insist . I'll have a coke and rum every ten years or so and it's been reversed because there is always much more coke than rum. I have a sneaky feeling I am not missing out on anything much .

    The last time I was actually drunk was at a charity event my fiance and I went to a couple of years ago. I just had way too much wine to drink that night, but luckily I kept my composure throughout the event. I barely remember the ride home. I had the worst hang over the next morning.

    Christmas Eve. I don't drink very often, but I wanted to try and keep up with my brother and my cousins, who are all in frats or sororities, which was such a horrible idea for me to do. I am already chronically ill and alcohol usually just makes me feel a lot worse most of the time, and that night was no exception.

    I, honestly, can't remember. There was a time period where what other people viewed as 'drunk' I didn't view as 'drunk'. Though realistically given the amount of course it was. I had the tolerance of Amy Winehouse for a while there.

    I don't think I have ever been drunk in my life. I am a young adult and I have drunk alcohol before but not the quantity to cause me to become drunk. I can't even remember the last time I had alcohol unless it was in ice-cream or pastry. I have seen may people drunk and it is not a good look.

    Thank you for responding to me. I have had too many emotional moments when drinking. I am usually an outspoken person, but sometimes I hold things inside and they come out when I am drunk. I have a lot of anger problems because of people and situations in my life. When I drink, I would lash out at everyone. There have been times when I collapsed on front porches, in the street, and also at parties. People would talk about those situations and laugh. I would laugh too but deep down inside, I was ashamed of my behavior. I did a lot of praying and it took some time for that crazy behavior to go away. Now I am a better person and do not let alcohol control my life. I am so proud of myself. In your case, sometimes strangers can comfort you and make you feel better. I am glad that he made you feel loved because sometimes all people need is to be comforted to know that people are there for them.

    I hate to say it but Friday. It all started when my best friend was running for a paid slot in my university's union and that he lost by all of 4 votes. So we drank out of misery. I don't know why I joined. I could have left after a few but I didn't. I got into the state where all I could think of was the fact I wanted more. And them more. Before I know it my wallets empty and i'm waking up feeling like I betrayed myself all due to the fact I drank.
  17. The last time that I got drunk was a few weeks ago and I haven't touched any alcohol since. I was mixing beer and Jack Daniels shots in the beginning. Towards the end of the night we started shooting vodka. I felt so terrible for three days afterwards that I cannot even imagine drinking in the near future. When I was in my twenties I could drink like that three or four days per week. My thirties do not allow for hard partying.

    Last time I got drunk was in november last year, I lost my cousin, so in the process of making the funeral arrangements, i got caught up emotionally and ended up getting drunk since I have been good.

    I got drunk about a month ago. I lost a lot of weight since I stopped partying. 30 pounds to be exact. Needless to say, I can't handle my liquor like I use to. It only takes a few to get tipsy and then flat out drunk. It creeps up on you also when you hardly drink and lost a lot of weight.

    I think it was New Years Eve 2013-2014. Since then I made a deal with myself to slow down on alcohol since it wasn't really benefiting me all that much and I was starting to develop some bad habits.
    I drink a lot less now, close to nothing actually.
