Is that poll serious?

I usually drink a 35cl bottle of scotch before going out... so that's 14 units already. I'd say by that point I was nicely pished.

Epiphone Les Paul ES,
Line6 Flextone III,
Laney VC15,

well there's 1.8 units in one can of 440ml 4% lager... ya need atleast 8 of them to get anyway near drunk.. so...way more than 8.
Edit: and this is very objective, it depends one each and every individual.

the unit system is useless like you don't know how many drinks you can have before you can get busted for drink driving

Drunk? 8+

But i don't see the fun in being half comatose, running into things, saying embarassing things to girls i'm trying to chat up and puking all over the place. And when i'm drunk, those things get even worse.

IDK how to do units, but 6 or 7 pints of lager gets me going. I think I'm a lightweight :/

So apparently the term "alcohol unit" is not foreign to some of you. Would anybody care to enlighten me before I begin imbibing and no longer care?

How come so many morons don't know what a unit is?

Edit: A unit is 10ml of pure alcohol. The amount in a drink depends on it's concentration and dilution etc. A pint of beer is about 2 units, a single shot is 1 unit and so on for different drinks.

Cause obviously it is some bullshit term created in the last 5 or so years to teach morons about the evils of drinking.

No, it's common knowledge actually.

But apparently not commoner knowledge.

About 3 beers to feel it, and about 7-8 to actually be drunk.
I'm the same as I was when I was six years old
And oh my god I feel so damn old
I don't really feel anything

I don't really drink much anymore.

Even when I did go out regularly, it seems that I was nowhere near as hardcore as most of you studs.

Now 100% humour free, in accordance with the rules.

if my calculations are correct, 4 shots (1.5 US Fl Oz. each) of 80 proof whiskey is equal to a little more than 17 units. so yeah, 17 units for an ok buzz.

maybe in the UK, bur since UK is the only places that uses it, you can't really say it's common knowledge. the standard drink in the US is 17.7 ml alcohol.

Dunno about units, but it took 2 vodka doubles, 1 vodka single, JD double and single, 3 shots of Aftershock and whatever my sister had left over in her glass...about 1/5th of JD if I remember correctly. And that didn't get me drunk-drunk, I didn't vomit or get a hangover or anything like that, just couldn't really walk straight.

Oh and I tried tequila at a Gojira gig on Wednesday. It was pretty good

edit, I'm by no means a drinker. I didn't start drinking properly until like a year ago so i'm pretty much a lightweight, but better a lightweight than an alcoholic

Around 2-3 pints of Stella (I have no wife, therefore it's safe to drink) to get me drunk depending on how I feel and how much I've eaten.

According to this alcohol unit calculator that's 6-9 units.

If it's champagne, not a whole lot. I have a friend who's a real nerd about it though, he won't drink things just because of something like a low alcohol percentage.

Oh, and the only other place I've ever seen "alcohol units" is in Bridget Jones's Diary, TS.

I'm in the 6-7 boundary me thinks.. I am a lightweight.. but I class drunk as more than tipsy, but not completely off my face on the floor.. but maybe staggering slightly and pissing excessively..
