How many drinks does it take for you to get drunk?
My tolerance for alcohol has changed drastically now that I don't troll the dance clubs every night of the week,lol! I could throw back 5 or six and be just fine.
Now it takes 2 for a buzz and 3 is tiptoeing into the danger zone.
how 'bout you all?

It depends what I'm drinking. If it's beer, I have to have at least three to start getting a good buzz, but I'm really not into drinking beer that much anymore. However, after a couple of good strong mixed drinks (margaritas on the rocks or vodka anything), I'm well on my way.

One thing I've found I can't drink anymore is rum. Coconut rum is fine, but any other type of rum just knocks me right on my ass.

I don't know for sure since I rarely drink. It would not be a lot though.

I hardly ever drink beer-it's too filling if I am eating something with it.
I am mostly a cocktail, shot. or wine drinker. Shots are usually a very poor idea for me, I am decidedly un ladylike afterward.

When I lived in PA it took 3-4 drinks to get drunk. Moved to Denver and one beer gave me a major buzz. It saves money when you're trying to get drunk, but a lot of people out here are probably to drunk to drive after one drink.

I used to drink quite a bit - I worked at a bar and had many shots of various types of liquor given to me in a night's work and I still managed to stay pretty level headed.

Since I've had kids, I can only drink beer and wine. I still have a high "tolerance"...It takes about 4 beers or 3 glasses of wine before I "feel good".

But to do karoke? Perhaps a whole bottle of Cabernet......

I have a brand new bottle of Reposado Tequila. You don't happen to have any limes do you?

I have a huge tolerance, I always have. It's weird.

Too many drinks and too much work to be fun. Just pass me that spleef or one of the pretty pills and I'll be better buzzed much quicker and with far less calories...

I can get buzzed after a few sips of wine or beer. My tolerance level is very low.

I have an extremely high tolerance. I'll fall asleep before I get drunk or start acting silly. I don't drink a whole lot though. If I'm going out with friends, maybe one drink per hour (or less). At home, sometimes more. DH and I love wine, so there's always wine in the house.

I am a very cheap date. I can cop a buzz off a single drink, even with food. Much like OP, 2 is good and 3 is very much treading the someone please make this room stop spinning line. I cannot do shots, have never been able to do them, they will come back up as fast as they went down.
