# It does make me wonder how people can drink beer. I guess it's an accquired taste.
I think as far as drinking goes, I'm quite sensible, but there have been maybe one or two times where I've thought "never again".

Then of course, I'm out the next week. XD

# Yes it is, then again there are probably more styles of beer than wine.
The hop is quite an odd plant with only one close relative. Maybe you react to the bitterness.

# That's probably it. I think I've been able to drink some wines in the past, but never fully enjoyed it.
Port's not bad, I have to say.

# Yes, Port tastes lovely, terrible hangover though.
Best flavoured wine I've tasted is home made Damson (very strong fruity flavour)especially sparkling.

# It gets you drunk REALLY fast, too, which I'm not sure I like, to be honest.
I prefer to have a couple before I really feel affected, be social and all that.

I don't really get hangovers, but I've been told I'll start getting them all the time when I'm older, which I can definitely say I'm not looking forward to.

# My theory is that the liver becomes less efficient and the acetaldehyde
from alcohol breakdown hangs around longer.
I don't really get them, I avoid drinking that much.
(especially with the meds I'm on.
Unexpected wine strength!

# Mm, medically, that's a very valid theory.
Of course, there's other factors, like hydration, if you've had something to eat beforehand, etc. I think right now I'm doing rather well. If I hadn't had such a big tea, I'd be hammered right now.

# Hydration, I found out about that last summer
started Lithium* pills and went cutting wood in the sun...
Very odd feeling of weakness and confusion. I'm so used to er,
'oddness' that I just see it as an experience. 0.5l of water and I was fine.

# Any kind of drug, even caffeine, never goes well without a decent amount of hydration.
The worst it's ever been for me is when I drank one too many a few years ago and ended up painting my friend's garden and bathroom with technicolour yawns. It's a wonder I'm still allowed back there. XD

# As a teenager, at one party
I was in such a state people(??)dragged me somehow to a bus stop, paid the driver and said "get rid of him".

# There's nothing more disorientating and confusing than waking up in your own bed the morning after.
At least in my case, where I was apparently dragged home. Bad times.

# Funny really, ethanol is really an anaesthetic, normally skilled medical people are required to administer them.
And shops selling bottles containing a fatal dose are everywhere.
Twisted old world it is.
I'd better sort the fire out and I'm getting tired/down.
See you later.

# Yeah, alcohol really isn't the best drug a person can take
but if people know their limits, I think they'll save a trip or two to A&E for an emergency stomach pump.
I'm probably gonna go too, nighty night all. ^^
