how many shots before alcohol poisoning?

i've always heard dumbasses boasting about taking 15+ shots. how many do you think is realistically possible to handle without getting seriously fvcked up? (no pun intended). i know body size has somewhat to do with it, but lets imagine an average guy

I'm 5'10, weighing in at 155 and did the 21 shots years ago on my 21st. Oddly enough I was the only one that didn't puke! No B.S.. I used to be able to put it away for someone my size...

So to get closer to answering the question, more than 21.

i have witnessed a friend drink 27 beers in a night and wake up just alittle hung over. As far as shots go i have seen guys finish 5th of vodca, whiskey by them selves so how many shots is that?? my friends dads friend who is a cop drank 50 beers in an 12 hour period. So it all depends i guess, all of the people i mentioned were A OK the next day besides being hung over

According to Wikipedia, a concentration in the blood stream of 0.55% will kill half the population. According to those DMV charts, that equals like 25 drinks all at once for a 200 pound man. You can then subtract 1 or 2 drinks for each hour that it takes to drink all of those drinks if you can't manage to get them down all at once. Note that some of those DMV ype charts show that "death is possible" at .27% BAC, so that would be about 13 drinks all at once.

But I think most cases of "alcohol poisoning" that we think of are more like really bad hangovers - where you're incredibly dehydrated and you're so nauseous that you can't keep water down . . so you get even more dehydrated and eventually get sent to go to the hospital for a saline IV. Moral of the story on that one is to drink lots of water during and after drinking.

i battled with someone before, yes very stupid, just the 2 of use killed 3 bottles of Remy Martin XO, a 24 of Heinekens.

lets just say, no one won, i dont remember how i got in the house, i woke up with barf all over my shirt, a severely twisted ankle.

my first thought to myself was, gawd damn i was stupid. and thank you GOD for letting me live.

i didnt drink again for about 2 yrs, not even a sip of beer.

My Ride: Keepin' it Real
i took down a full bottle of johnny black (750ml) by myself at a night club during my junior year of college. a full bottle is about 28 shots. i probably weighed 155-160 at the time. didn't throw up, didn't black out but felt like complete sh!t.

then, in my senior year of college, i was in partying in korea during spring break. i drank a full bottle of "Something Special." it's a cheap ass whiskey they drink in korea. felt good the whole time i was at the club. got back around 4AM and went to sleep. about an hour into my sleep, i awoke to the worst pain of my entire life. i crawled down the hall of my hotel to my friend's room, slammed my fist on his door for about 10 minutes (he's a heavy sleeper), woke up half the guests on my floor. when my friend finally opened the door, i told him i needed to go to the hospital. i went to the ER, i threw up a bunch of times, they gave me some drugs and i went home. it was the worst physical pain i ever felt in my life, no joke. they told me i got alcohol poisoning and told me not to drink for at least 6 weeks. a couple days later, i was at the club again drinking my ass off.

anyways, i'm older now, and if i drink even 15 shots or so, i'll seriously pass out. can't hold it down like i used to.

I dont' get the appeal of drinking so much that you get completely trashed, it's not fun feeling like **** the next day.

I nearly died after 12 shots of smirnoff vodka but thank god i threw up plus it was the first time i drank so i don't know if it's an accurate number - taking into account tolerance


- I was flying British Airways business class by the way and projectile vomited smoked salmon and vodka all over the person sitting oposite me ( that's the way they set up their seats) before the plane took off...

passed out in the bathroom and was out cold for the whole 7 hour flight

Most embarrasing moment of my life walking out of that toilet and having to look at all the people on the plane who had to smell my vomit the whole plane ride

...after that I thought alcohol was the devil

...i got over it tho

edit- i forgot to mention i was 16/17 at the time and wieghing about 230lbs

the most i've ever drank in one night was a red solo cup w/ grey goose on the rocks (about 6-8 shots), shotgunning 10 beers, and drinking a couple shots of smirnoff vanilla.

i woke up with a hangover and there was no water in the house -_-

a bad hangover vs. alcohol poisoning = a bad hangover vs. dying

Alcohol is a poison. When you drink enough of it, it kills you...

My Ride: Questionable
How many??? Dang good question... I can't remember... what I do remember was waking up in a hospital with charcoal all over my face getting my stomach pumped wanting to die more than anything in the world to end my agony and swearing I'd never touch alcohol again... That was 5 years ago and I think I've only been slightly tipsy 4 or 5 times since then... Alcohol is no longer my friend.
