It depends on what I am drinking- 5 beers or 3 cocktails- and I am tipsy.  I don’t think I have ever thought it was unsafe for people to be around me!?!  I am a happy drunk.

2 and I’m tipsy, 4 and I’m drunk. Depends what the drinks are though. Bottle of cider I get drunk quicker than a spirit and a mixer

I havent had more than 1 drink since my 21st birthday party, so I’m pretty sure it would only take me a few to get drunk.

I’ve only been drunk once. And it was on vodka. Then I found out through being terribly itchy for about two weeks that I was allergic to vodka. FML. And I was a happy drunk till my fiance started telling me off for drinking too much. Then I got really mean, really fast. 😛 I don’t know how many shots it would have been, since I mixed it with Sprite and marachino cherries. (by the way, Sprite with marachino cherries is AMAZING) I had about ten glasses of the mixture that night though. (yikes all that sugar) I can easily drink a whole bottle of wine without feeling off, though. I have a very high alcohol tolerance.

Probably 2 or 3. I’m SUCH a lightweight. I honestly feel tipsy after one. I rarely drink so it really hits me whenever I do.

It depends how quickly I drink it. Unfortunately I have a pretty high tolerance. My FI/family/friends all love drinking.

I’ve haven’t drank much since my husband’s birthday party last year when I got REALLY drunk and blacked out – ukky feeling, never want to experience that again – so now if we have people over I’ll have maybe three beers or a couple of glasses of wine. I’m a sappy drunk, and I cry over nothing, so it’s better for all involved for me not to get drunk.

6 beers is good tipsy, anything more & I black out.  & usually 4 shots of vodka / tequila for good tipsy, I try not not to go past that…  

Frim what I remember I’m such a weenie when I’m drunk, last time I fell then cried cause dh was (understandably) upset then I blacked out.

Skittles131:  lol this is so me. If I haven’t drunk in a while I have one drink and suddenly I’m grinning like the Cheshire Cat and feel like bambI when I get up to go to the bathroom!

Hmmm, depends what I’m drinking…

I definitely don’t feel tipsy after 1-2 units (about 1 pint of beer), just a bit relaxed, like it’s taken the edge off my day. However, I definitely would not drink any more than that if I was going to drive.

By about 3 pints/6 units, I suppose I’m feeling tipsy.

I will not shame myself publically by saying just how much it takes to get me drunk, but it’s a lot. I wouldn’t say I’m ever a danger to be around, however. When I’m drunk, all I want is more drink, food, and a warm place to sleep. They say the real you comes out when you are drunk… in which case I suppose I’m basically like a cat or a dog, LOL… eat, drink and sleep!

Jennybee224:  2 drinks is my absolute max around people, but 1 is better. With 1 I would still consider myself totally unsafe to drive. Sometimes even half will go right to my head… I’m smallish and have a very low tolerance. It’s a bummer because I LOVE trying different beers all the time, but I have to be careful. I have one several times a week though. Delicious delicious beer.

So, 3 would make me quite drunk. I don’t remember the last time I did that.

i drink pretty often, but my tolerance is low now due to being on a ketogenic diet. after 1.5 drinks I’m feeling it, 2 drinks in and im solidly tipsy, 3 drinks and im drunk, 4 and i’m SURE a hangover. Sigh. I used to have way better tolerance.
