How many units of alcohol does it take to get you drunk?

On a scale of 2-15, how many units of alcohol does it take for you to get tipsy? (A unit of alcohol is roughly equivalent to a shot.)

Help us keep this site organized and clean. Thanks!

  • I've only ever taken a single sip of alcohol and immediately decided it wasn't for me. So I'm not sure. I would assume only a few though.

  • Depends on the kind of alcohol, the time of day, and how much I've eaten that day. A glass-and-a-half of wine at work over a 3-course lunch, with table water and free-flowing coffee to finish, pleasantly eases the conversation.

    But a glass-and-a-half between lunch and dinner, and work after that is out of the question.

  • After 5 drinks I pass the point of not giving a fuck about the rest of the drinks.

  • half a 750ml bottle is about enough for me and any more is too much

    and any more than a quarter to a third of a 750 hurts too much next mornin anyhow

  • Idk what a unit is but depending on how much I've been drinking that month it can be anywhere from 4 to 8 shots of whiskey. All depends on my tolerance.

  • depends on how fast i've been consuming. the last time, it took about 12 beers (abt 5% abv-ish) and 4 -5 glasses of whiskey, but i had been drinking from about 4:00 pm to 6:00 am, so i had a lot of time.

  • I have no idea what a unit is and have never seen a scale of 2-15. I guess i am in the middle

  • A bottle of whiskey! Any more and the next morning is hell.
    Tho in my university years, me and 3 buddies managed 3 bottles of vodka, 1 case of beer and 3/4 of a bottle of whiskey on one Saturday.

  • It's generally around two or three strong drinks. I'm east asian, so I get very flushed and dizzy. So I can't hold my alcohol worth a shit.
