Depends what I'm drinking but for me I think about 7-8 is drunk drunk territory, but I can reasonably keep going to as many as 15. And that's as a right skinny fucker too, so by all accounts I should be a total lightweight.
The thing that has always truly puzzled me is how you store over ten pints of liquid in your body, without pissing like a garden hose. That's literally as much beer as you have blood. What usually happens is I'll start off on the pints and have 3-4, but by the time the buzz has started to really kick in I'll invariably switch to a spirit and a mixer, because it's less volume. By the time shots are introduced to the equation (the marker of a truly successful night out-out) I'll be past the stage of remembering it the next day, and my mates have told me some truly dreadful tales of the things I get up to when I'm in that state, but on no occasion have I ever passed out, and I'm always (at least outwardly) reasonably with it.
Some people go all wobbly and start falling about and such, but instead, I just seem to become possessed by the Dr. Hyde version of myself who doesn't give a fuck. I've known some people who you'd never even notice were tipsy after about six pints, but they'll hit a wall and just fall asleep wherever they're sat. Weird how it affects different folk differently.
Probably has a lot to do with your upbringing. My mum and dad are committed drinkers, I wouldn't say alcoholics, but they definitely drink more than is healthy. I know some of you would say 2but that IS being an alcoholic", but like, it's not a problematic relationship with booze, for them, it's just that they very much come from that type of working class northern lifestyle where having a few beers after work and then spending the weekend down the local is basically how they've spent their entire lives, and it has no doubt rubbed off on me.
