When were you last sick from drinking?

September 2018. I went to visit our sister school in Taiwan, and the teachers took us out to dinner one night. In Taiwan, apparently whenever someone comes up to you at your table to talk or introduce themselves, you have to down an entire small glass. We were drinking Heineken so I thought I'd be able to handle it. I was wrong. I had a bunch of people come up to me two or three or four times and pretend like it was the first time we met. There was also karaoke involved. I was puking until 5am the next morning, slept for a couple hours, then got up to get ready for the students' science presentations.

In June 2017. Haven't had a drink since November 2017, since I can't drink anymore for medical reasons. I don't really miss it anyway, I like weed much better plus that helps my medical conditions.

About six months ago. Company party with open bar, I had a great time and didn't realize how much I drank. Felt a little woozy on the streetcar/subway home, and then, as soon as I got home...it was hell, man. Up for a couple of hours, thought I had it all out of my system and went to sleep, then I woke up and got busy again. Fucking horrible feeling. Managed to eat a normal-ish lunch later in the day and survived the night, and I was good.

I'm over 30 and have never been sick from drinking before, so...yeah, that was unpleasant. That was the first and, I promised myself, the last time.

2010, when I was almost 30. It was definitely the last time I’d drink that much. Just can’t tolerate it anymore.

Never thrown up before, but I've been basically dead for an entire day afterward. One of the worst feelings in the world.

Last time it happened...? Not feeling so hot right now, actually.

New Years Night. I puked filling up my bathroom sink and fell asleep. Woke up the next day and i realized it was still clogged up. Cleaning up that bloody mary mess was gross. :0

Literally in cold sweats as I type. (I’m going to rehab on Monday)

I’m a hardcore alcoholic though so I think some of you would be shocked just how much I drank and how inappropriately I drank. Trying to explain a drinking problem to a non-alcoholic doesn’t work which is why AA is so popular - you get a sense of community that identifies with your story.

September 2018. Had a good run of not overdoing it going but drank a bunch of rum and pbr strong then started the morning with a coffee and cigarette. One bad decision too many.

Good on you, stick with it.

35. I used to puke regularly from drinking through my 20s. Now maaaaayyybe once a year. Usually because an old friend talks me into one more shot than I should have.

I just don’t drink much anymore. Unless it’s a special get together with old friends. Having a few kids will do that.

Last time was last year, haha. It's weird for me - up to my limit I feel pretty much fine and not even that drunk, but one drink too many and it's a disaster.

Good luck and stay strong!

The day after my 30th birthday

Think it was 2015 at E3. I can handle alcohol but I don’t usually drink and my boss knew that but he tries to force people to drink because they are easier for him to manipulate. He lied to me about what alcohol he poured me and it was apparently way more than I thought because I passed out. I woke up awhile later and he was instructing people to slap and punch one of the other employees, who’d also passed out, in the face. After we got them out of there I spent the rest of the night in the hotel room barfing. Was the only time I’ve been sick from drinking.

Couple days ago. Me and a couple buddies took a train, hit the bar and then shared a bottle of jack with the dudes in the seats across from us had. The motion from the train got to me but luckily I was able to hold back the puke until we got to our destination and hotel.

Never drank myself "sick" but I've been almost uncomfortably drunk... Almost. I don't think I've ever gotten a really bad hangover either, nothing a good breakfast couldn't fix. Been drinking for about 5 years now, fairly responsible I guess ... Not a big fan of drinking out at bars, I like chillin at home, safe.

Probably three or four years ago.

I just hit six months without drinking though and that is probably going to continue (I can't drink because of some unrelated meds I take), so God knows if it will ever happen again.

Summer of 2017. I forgot how much I drank but I remember wanting to die the next day. I was dry heaving all day.

Before that, probably 2016. I went out for a few drinks and I don't remember what happened but I only had like, 6 pints of cider and I got really sick and blacked out.

Only two instances of me ever being sick drinking.

About 25 years ago. It was terrifying and nothing I ever wanted to happen again.

Got drunk after this incident, but never crossed this line again.

The last time I drank, which is 16 years ago at this point. I said to myself at the time that I'd never drink again, and here we are.

Couple of years ago. I’d been out drinking then came home and rolled a big spliff, which is what tipped me over the edge. Mixing a skinful of booze with a joint is always risky.

I’ve not been sick from alcohol alone for a long time. I can tell when things are about to go south and know when to call it a night.
