When were you last sick from drinking?

Had an interesting discussion with my pals about when we last puked from drinking.

I was last sick in Jan 2016 at an epic piss up. My tolerance is pretty high so I don't puke much plus I drink less now than in my peak period.

You lot?

Is puking the only qualifier for being sick? I would say it's not. A hangover is like the definition of being sick, and that happens pretty much anytime I have more than 4-5 drinks now at 30.

I'm hungover after 2 beers at 36. So, last weekend, then.

The last time I puked? Jeez... I haven't puked in my new condo and I got that in September 2016. I did puke at some point in my last apartment and that was Feb 2015 to September 2016. There's the timeframe. Can't narrow it down.

Sick as in vomit? Probably back in college (2008)

Sick as in hungover? Maybe law school, lol (5 years ago)

I don't drink much. I only do when I go out with friends.

Can't remember really, but it's been some time. Probably even 10 years and more. I don't really drink anymore, partly because excess drinking was a problem. Though not super often to the point of vomiting, but it has happened more than once or twice. Can't even say when I last had a proper hangover, it's also years ago.

It's been a while. I don't drink much, and have only gotten really hungover two or three times.

Maybe several years or more.

First time - 11 double shots of tequila in an hour and a half when I was 17
Second time - Drank beer all day while fishing with friends, then they talked me into drinking a few shots of tequila which I had sworn off, and then went back to beer
Third time - Mixing beer, champagne and gin and tonic on New Year's in Niagara Falls, playing beer pong with all three. Not fun.

I blacked out once since, but that's because I took my antidepressant and then drank, and couldn't remember anything post 9pm

Can't even remember but I know the one my buddy never forgets . We were at summer jam and I was blitzed like some dude I never knew had a gas mask bong and drank all day and night.
The next day I was so sick I was lying under our rental truck it was so hot and I was just dying lol.
I told my brother mix me a whisky and ginger " make it a strong one " .... 3 hours later watching snoop on stage drinking 100 proof out of the bottle.
My friend said it was the manliest thing he ever saw but you could sub stupid in there.

I think the OP specifically means puking, which here in the UK we call being sick.
And what you being sick we call being ill.

I was a very heavy drinker and used to have a high tolerance, no matter how I drank I wouldn't puke, unless I was mixing drink with other things like weed or ketamine.

But in the last few years my tolerance has nosedived, I had been out drinking all night a year or so ago, and was on a train home at around 10am very much worse for wear... felt the urge to vomit so had to get off at a random stop and puke on the platform in front of several people. Not my finest hour.

2 years ago, but I get bad motion sickness, after a certain number of drinks I either have to lay down or take some shots to get through it... And I just didn't do either in time.

Thankfully motion sickness is super easy to rally from.

I’ve never puked from drinking and the only time I ever got drunk was when I drank beer for the very first time in April last year.

When I went to Japan, I chugged like 2-3 highballs/Asahi/etc almost every other night. Surprisingly, never got drunk.

Probably the summer before last. I drank a couple shots too many before one of my drunken walks. Usually, I stick to a set number of drinks. But this particular evening I let the booze get the best me when I saw I was near the bottom of the bottle.

Never. Never even been hungover. I normally don't drink much and am a total lightweight. But I have consumed large amounts of alcohol in short settings in college and a few nights recently with the wife and friends. Not once got sick, hungover, nor employed tricks like loading up on starch.

Last time I threw up on a night out was August last year, I'd just lost my job and went on a mad one at a house party. Last time I was hungover (but no throwing up) was today. :)

Starting like 5 years ago, I haven’t been able to drink too much strong alcohol too quickly without getting stomach sick before I get drunk. I don’t get easily drunk off shots, I just get pain. My stomach is just too sensitive. I can’t do shots and pure liquor haphazardly like others anymore. Beer and wine and cocktails need to be smooth and done at a good pace otherwise I literally get pain. I’ve had an endoscopy and my stomach is fine, it’s just very sensitive to the alcohol other people punch down effortlessly.

It's amazing to me how many people don't know how to avoid hangovers.

The hangover is due to dehydration caused by the alcohol. Just drink a shitload of water before you go to sleep. Like 2 liters or more. You'll wake up fairly fresh with no ill effects apart from a very full bladder.

Yeah, or even better is some Gatorade or pedialyte diluted in water. Electrolytes and water. It will severely reduce the strength of a hangover.

If you put some pedialyte in your cocktails, you can keep drinking without dehydrating at all lmao

I’ve never been sick from drinking. Even when I drink a lot. I’ve never blacked out either (even after doing eight jagerbombs in under a minute). My body is very efficient with alcohol I guess.

Edit: I also hydrate myself before drinking.

How old are you? I drink insane amounts of water. Doesn't matter. Even 2 years ago I could handle a ton of booze on 6 hours of sleep. Now I just want to die.

I'm 31. It still works fine for me.

I don't drink often either, so my tolerance isn't notably high.

October 31, 2009. Halloween party; I remember the year because they had game 3 of the Phillies/Yankees World Series on the TV.

...I drank FAR too much tequila, as well as assorted other drinks.

I think the last time that happened I was 15. So 19-years ago. Haha 👴.

It's kind of hillarious how low my tolerance for alcohol has gotten, I can get a buzz going from five beers now.

Edit: I get hungover really easily, if I have three or four beers I'm going to feel it.

I went to the local october fest and got hammered, that was the most recent time I got really hungover.
