    I'm not quite sure what happened. I had a few drinks--which was apparently a few too many--and can't recall anything after maybe 12:30-1. I'm really, really upset by this. I woke up in the hospital with a sizeable bill, all because I had too much to drink. I've never really been a big partier; I'm in college, but up until a few months ago I never drank. There are two nights were I was brown-out (recalling everything, bit fuzzy), but last night...

    I'd really like some advice, suggestions, words...it'd mean a lot to me. I'm really shaken up by this. While getting f'd up might be common for most, it disgusts me. I'm so disappointed in myself, and I can't believe that happened. I remember 3 drinks!!! That's it! How does that happen so quickly and suddenly?! Again, please post, I could really use it right now.

    If this is the wrong sub-forum, please let me know. I thought it seemed most appropriate for advice and stuff.

    Drink less or don't drink at all. You can also bring friends to the party who will watch out for you and make sure that you don't do anything silly. Take care! :hug:

    maybe someone spiked your drink? it's strange that you got so messed up so quickly. i'd agree, have your friends keep an eye on you, and help you stop earlier in the evening if it's a result of drinking too much. alternate alcohol with water or soft drinks so you pace yourself over an evening. if this doesn't work and this situation repeats itself then maybe you need to consider if you have a drinking problem. an addictions specialist can help assess you. good luck.

    I think some lessons come hard, and now you know that whatever the amount of drinks you had were too many...I am glad you are OK and that you are here to seek support...also remember to forgive yourself...we all step off the wagon and do things we are not proud of...big hugs, and here's to more juice and less sauce...J

    It happens to the best of us, the best advice I could give to you is just to know your limits, know how much you can handle. you're not a bad person :hug:

    Well, I've more or less figured out why things went downhill so quickly...
    By all accounts with my friends, I had had less drinks than they did (I was correct with my 3 assessment) and they felt nothing. The catch? I went into the night severely dehydrated. So on the one hand I'm THRILLED my drink wasn't spiked and that I didn't just go nuts drinking stuff left and right, but on the other hand, I'm rolling my eyes for not realizing that certain other events had set me up poorly for even a single drink. Thanks for all of your help!

    Does anyone in your family have a drinking problem?? The reason I ask is that alcoholism is hereditary.. It sounds like you had a blackout.. My advice is don't drink..
