What is the most amount of alcohol you drank in 1 day?

  1. Apr 18, 2008 #1
    Me: half a bottle of 151 and a 1/4 bottle of tequila. Also 3/4 of a 5th of JD.



    Yes it was dumb and yes I was very sick the next day. Next?

    Four shots of whiskey in about 2 hours. The room was spinning, and I was vomiting. It was nearly 40 years ago and I have never repeated it. Rarely do I have two drinks in the same week now.

    Probably a bottle of wine. I've never thrown up from alcohol, and honestly probably have never had more than six or seven drinks in an entire night out.

    I *think* it was a few beers, a couple shots of tequila and a shot of Canadian whiskey, and yep, I was VERY sick, and VERY hungover, and the details are a bit fuzzy of just how much I had to drink. The experience has NOT been repeated (it was quite a lot of years ago now).

    Don't know, I got way too drunk to keep track, but I do recall that my buddies wouldn't allow me to even ride in the dune buggy. I remember that it started raining on me while I was in my sleeping bag. I remember trying to keep warm in this little puddle right next to me.

    It wasn't rainwater.

    That was thirty years ago and I haven't really drank much since then.

    Actually, I lied! I did get really sick one night. I repressed the memory, I guess...

    I went to an giant camp-on-the-beach night down here, and had way too much vodka and cranberry. I don't even know how many, but two people finished more than half the bottle in one night. I didn't have any major problems that night (but my girlfriend? she was a different story...) but had to drive home over the Santa Cruz mountains in the morning.

    The twisty road pretty quickly led to a twisty stomach. I took an exit into the ritzy community of Los Gatos, found a spot on the shoulder to park, and got out of the car just in the nick of time. I had two objects to choose from in the immediate vicinity of the car: a trashcan and a pretty little tree planted along the sidewalk. Of course, in my haste, I decided..... to vomit on the tree. No, I don't really know why. It was about 7 am on a bright, clear Saturday morning, and I'm sure at least ten joggers saw me paint the little sapling pink.

    Needless to say, I've never had a vodka and cranberry since.

    While it wasn't by any means the most that I've consumed in a day, the one that nearly killed me was 26 Black Russians one evening (that's when a drink was 1 3/4 ounces). I think that it was the sugar more than the alcohol that done me in, since I was diabetic at the time.
    Nowadays, I'll regularly slam back at least a dozen beers on a Saturday or Sunday, and have half a dozen or so after work every day. Then there's the 'sleeping pill' of about 4 ounces of Scotch at bed-time.

    Conditioned taste aversion is a powerful thing. It's been about 10 years since my incident with whiskey (that was the last thing I remembered tasting...both directions :yuck:) and I'm only just starting to be able to drink things with whiskey in them, but ONLY if it's VERY dilute. For years, just the smell of anything in the family of whiskey, bourbon or scotch would turn my stomach. But, I got a recipe for Jack Daniel's bbq sauce, and it has become one of my favorite bbq sauces, so I think I'm finally on the road to recovery. I used to LOVE drinks like whiskey sours and Lynchburg lemonade, but haven't been able to touch them for about a decade now.

    Peppermint schnapps! My freshman roommate lost a drinking contest one of our dorm mates. He insisted that I "uphold the honor of the room" and challenge the winner's roommate to a drinking contest. He chose a quart of peppermint schnapps, shot for shot.

    Unfortunately, I won.

    :yuck: I don't think I could drink peppermint schnapps anyway. Maybe in a cup of hot cocoa in winter, but certainly not as shots! :yuck:

    My best estimate based on what people told me afterwards, was that I had about 2 liters (that's about half a gallon for you Americans) of Vodka in one night, as well as about 2/3 of a bottle of wine. Best part is I felt fine the next day.

    I threw a bunch of it up, which is probably the only reason I never ended up in the hospital.

    I use to be able to put down a 20-pack in a night no problem, but those days are long gone.

    I once drank a litre of whisky in a day. It never put me off. I still love whisky. Yes I'm stupid.

    Many cultures are proud of their stomach for large amounts of alcohol. I was with a few guys three weeks ago, and the first one said that he used to drink about as much as Danger, but he doesn't any more, except when he goes down to Mexico to see his brother and his old friends. He said it was "Mexican," "what Mexican doesn't drink, you know man" The guy standing next to me was from South Korea and concurred: "Yeah, Koreans too." I imagine if there was a German there, he would have said Germans drink a lot of beer, Japanese would say lots of Saki, Russians would say vodka shots, and etc.

    I think like half a beer or something? Or half a glass of champagne, whichever is more.

    Yeah, I really hate alcohol. Just fills my mouth with this super bitter taste and I can't stand it. Same with coffee and grapefruit.

    I knew two kids in highschool that drank too much and died on their own vomit. What exactly is the point of this thread?

    I'm not impressed by how much a person is able to drink. (I drink a beer every day, 7 days a week.) But I dont drink for the explicity purpose of getting jacked up. If someone does that, its sad.

    Alcoholism runs in my family, so I typically try to steer away from it as best I can. I admit though that I will have the occasional glass of Guinness if i'm out eating with a group of friends and the place just happens to carry it... which isn't that often. It's rare for restaurants to carry it anyway. The main thing is that I can not enjoy a thin, light, watered down beer.

    I'd say maybe a pint a month, if that.
