I can't do pints. After two I'm feeling so bloated and uncomfortable, I go all quiet in a zen-like state [:|] Yet I know loads of skinny people that can down 'em like there's no tomorrow, without even a sign of needing to so much as go for a pee. Where does it all go?! [:S]

I once knew a girl that needed five pints to get drunk, and her brother, a real beanstalk, needed at least seven - WTF, I'd have exploded after three! When I was 12 at school one of my classmates confessed in a class discussion that his dad had ten pints (and at that age you knew half of what your peers said was BS) and got into a scrap or summat.

I start to feel a bit light headed after about 5. Start getting very conversational after 6 or 7, but easily drink 12 or more on a night out

It's not how many, it how many of what type of pint.

5 pints of Fosters isnt the same as 5 pints of Stella.

I can manage 5-6 pints of stella before it gets a bit blurry, after that its all down hill, fast. I cant say about Fosters, I havent drunk that since I was about 16, after all, it is a Training beer isnt it.

If I cant get Stella, I'll have Magnas, of which I can take about the same...

I am a classic binge drinker.  I hit 4 pints and I am off to the bog every pint from then on.  it is funny as you sync up with other people, by the end of the night you have made new friends.  Just like women syncing up on the blob.

I know not all pints are the same in terms of alcohol content, it's the sheer volume of liquid I'm talking about. If I want to get drunk I'll hit the spirits...

Binge drinker here too. When I was a few stone lighter I could drink more than I do now. 6 pints of bitter and then it starts to go down hill. I find lager make me need to go sooner.

i can manage a fair amount of drink in terms of alcohol but i can't drink too many pints because they bloat me out and i'm always in the loo

my drink of choice (i can drink it any time of day and is the only thing i drink regularly) is WKD Blue. people take the **** saying its a girls drink but i just love the taste. if i have mates round of an evening i'll go though 8 bottles

I'm not small, 6' 4" and tend to drink maybe 2/3 pints an hour when I first get out but that can speed up to about 4/5 when I've had a few. It's not big and not clever but if we go out on a Saturday afternoon into the evening can easily sink 14 pints. But then all my mates do, and they aren't all over 6 foot, so it's not a size thing.

It depends on a few things but the main thing is how used to it you are, people who are "bigger" can generally drink more than skinny people but the more you drink alcohol the bigger your resistance to it becomes. If you've got 2 identical people, 1 who gets hammered most nights & the other who barely ever drinks, the person who's used to it will be able to drink far more than the other person without getting drunk.

I think the late, great Roy Castle summed it up nicely ...

"Dedication's what you need..."

btw, has anyone ever tried drinking their normal pint quota in dark wheat beer from Germany? Hurts.

I'm a big lad and can put it a way when the need arises. I'm not out
much these days being an old git but an average night could see 10 empty pint glasses. Like the Walrus, an all day rugby sesh can see a frighteing amount put away. Oh what fond memories I have of the world cup win..... starting with beer and a fry up at 7.30 in the morning.
