I had a few times in college where I don’t remember bits and pieces of the night. I’m very lucky in that I was always with some very, very good friends who always took care of each other, so I was kept safe.

I do know (much to my shame) that I was a “friendly” drunk and my friends had to stop me from kissing guys now and again (I was dating my DH all through college, long distance). I don’t EVER remember kissing another guy, but I remember being pulled away by my friends, if that makes sense.

I don’t like getting drunk, I just prefer to be in control at all times… but one time me and my DH were celebrating the end of the college semester and we drank way too much liquor. All I remember is crawling up the steps and going to bed. I lost a few hours, I still don’t remember what happened! I did have a nasty bruise the next morning though!

The night of my bachelorette party. I remember most of it, and walking out of the last bar. I don’t remember getting back to the hotel at all. I remember some things once we got back, like changing and getting into bed, but that’s it. Thankfully my girls took great care of me, even though they kept handing me shots to get me to that stage!  😛

Uhh unfortunately I’ve probably been blackout drunk a couple of times..

The worst was when I decided to sneak back out to a party. I remember drinking a pint of mixed spirits in some moment of excellence. I remember someone trying to ring my parents (who fortunately didn’t answer) and I remember my bff who had done the same, being sick on my head. At some point I woke up in a graveyard halfway to my house. And then my mother found me trying to get through our catflap because I couldn’t find my house key at 7am. Even though I was out for 8 hours I literally don’t remember anything inbetween that. 

And all the other times the same – including making terrible judgements involving friends exes, my exes and peoples boyfriends and cracking my skull at some point.

And this is why I no longer drink haha

I’ve had quite a few “brown outs” (which is really what you’re referencing if you can remember anything at all) but only one or two absolute black outs.  They’ve all happened when I’m with very close friends I trust or my Fiance.

The one time that was actually scary, I was drugged..but thankfully my best friend was there and got me out and home.

The only time that I was ever really black out drunk I was with DH (boyfriend of 5 months at the time) and myself, a bartender and a bottle of tequila all got into a fight in Varadero Cuba. Shot for shot. Bad Idea.

DH said he took me back to the room because I insisted that we NEEDED to have sex on the balcony (and apparently I was being pretty annoying to the other resort guests). In DH’s defense he was also really tipsy. The balcony thing did happen, I have zero recolection of that. I broke a glass, fell on my face, somehow crawled into bed and threw up on DH in the middle of the night, rolled over and went back to sleep. I also had a two day hang over in the tropics.

@Nona99:  HA this reminds me of one black out we BOTH had…it was the night we celebrated him graduating from college.  We had WAY too much to drink at a friend’s house, caught a ride back to his fraternity house (where he lived) with another friend, apparently had super loud sex for hours…

All we remember is drinking at the friend’s house.  We woke up the next morning and the room was a wreck, there was an empty bottle of Jager (neither of us had bought any, no clue where it came from), and he was naked and I was wearing the shirt he had been wearing the day before.  Some of his brothers said he came home and seemed totally coherent and hung out for almost an hour before going to bed.

Oooh or another at the end of a bar crawl…someone had apparently broken a couple glasses in the bar bathroom and I slipped on the broken glass and fell on my hands.  (I don’t remember that part)

I came back out to the table with our friends with my hands bleeding and one of the guys we were with decided it would be a great idea to order a shot of vodka and clean my hands.  All I remember was the burning!  I woke up the next morning wondering why my hands were all cut up…and then remembered the pain.  Someone else filled me in on the details haha.

It has happened to me plenty of times in college.

Generally I would just black out (not remember) bits and pieces throughout the night.  A few times it was worse, where I remembered up until a certain point and then nothing after that.  Like the last thing I would remember is being at the bar (or wherever) and then I wake up in my bed.

Now you don’t know you’re blackout drunk at the time.  It’s only the next day when you don’t remember that you realize you were.

The entire time no one else can tell you are blackout drunk.  You probably appear highly intoxicated but you are otherwise acting normal.  Walking, talking, dancing, etc.  You just don’t remember all of it the next day.  At least that was my experience.  NOT the same thing as being passed out.

I never got into trouble during it or did anything horribly stupid.  Texting ex boyfriends or getting dropped off at their house?  Sure.  Hitting my head on something, yep.  Made out with random people, yes.  But never got arrested or ruined a relationship/friendship.
