I don’t really drink. Ever. The night of my bachelorette party I’m pretty sure I blacked out. The night started off with a light meal and at least 7 shots. Some were brought to my table randomly from strangers but mostly it was my Maid/Matron of Honor who kept buying me drinks. I remember all of this. Then, we must have hit up around 3-4 more clubs/bars for more drinks and I remember taking a shot and having to use the restroom. I remember setting my phone down at the bar with my friends so that I wouldn’t drop it in the toilet but once I actually starting peeing I couldn’t remember where I had my phone last. That’s when I knew I was a little more intoxicated than I thought. I remember leaving and sleeping in the back seat of the car but I could have SWORN I never woke up again. I somehow was back at my friend’s house, apparently I yelled at them to leave me the f&%* alone, and they brought me crackers and a trash can. All i remember really is getting up during the middle of the night and trying to find my way to the bathroom to pee still drunk as shit. The walls were spinning but I never did throw up. I did have a massive hangover the next day though. I will probably never drink that much again. I hated every minute of it and it scares me that I don’t remember some of my night.

It depends what you mean by black out. I went through a phase in my mid to late 20s where I would go out, but I would have no memory about what happened the night before after about 9pm. That doesn’t mean that I did anything odd or out of character… I just didn’t remember what happened.
My friend explained it to me thus… alcohol is an anaesthetic, and anaesthetics affect how short term memory is turned into long term memory. Now, most people will never experience the anaesthetic affect of alcohol, because it gets you drunk a long time before you become anaesthetised. However, because I had developed such a high tolerance over the years, I was no longer getting drunk in the same way, but I was drinking enough to be affected by the anaesthetic!
I mean… I would literally come home, change into my PJs, put on a face mask, maybe do some ironing, have a snack and a cup of tea… but I would remember nothing! Imagine being sober enough to do house chores, but so drunk that you don’t remember it afterwards?

Plenty of times throughout my drinking days. I totally thought it was normal and the things that happened were just a part of drinking.
Clean and sober for over two years now, I know that the things I went through were not normal and i am an alcoholic who will never ever be able to drink socially.
But I guess blackouts were a big part of my realization that I had a problem.

@RenoSweeney24: I’ve never drank alcohol, so I’ve never been any sort of drunk, including black-out. However, I’ve had experiences with people being that drunk all the time, and it’s so stressful and annoying. At least in my experience it was. But then again, I was in middle school and it was my mom, not any of my friends, so my opinion is probably really skewed haha.

Yeah, I imagine that would be pretty different.
Plus, even if it had been your friends and you hadn’t had anything to drink it’s different.
You not drunk and everyone ELSE drunk=omg shut up you’re all acting like idiots

Yeah, I’m not sure what exactly causes people to black out in situations when they wouldn’t usually.
I didn’t even get a hangover from mine! lol

I have never been black out drunk. I’ve been beyond wasted (oh Las Vegas you devil!) but never blacked out.
DH and I also do not get hangovers. Never have and it doesn’t matter how hard or how long we partied or what we drank.

ohhhh now hangovers are another story. no matter how drunk or un-drunk i get (even if i get regular drunk) i usually have the absolute worst hangovers. i think i’m just really sensitive to alcohol, because i usually am puking all the next day until like 3 pm. -_-

I just read this whole thread (I know it’s 3 years old) because I was curious, and there’s still one thing I don’t really get: Do people ALWAYS know if they’ve had a black out or even a brown out? I mean, if you can’t remember.. how do you know you forgot? I don’t think I’ve ever experienced anything like this?
Weird, I know, but it’s probably the only thing in my life I’m anxious about. I no longer drink more than 1-2 glasses of anything when I’m out, and I haven’t done shots in years, but I used to worry that I could have gone out and forgotten something, despite thinking I remembered my whole night, and it totally messed with my head..

Nobody? I’m just curious, because I really don’t understand this phenomenon..

twice in my life. First time was the first time I ever got drunk at like 15.. second was a couple days after my dad died. I was 17. Actually one more time after that, like two weeks after. Since then I’ve been drunk enough to where the night before was foggy and spotty. Brief forget able moments but not like those three times.
