I'm just bothered about this situation. I've never been drunk simply I don't drink alcholic beverages. I doubt if someone told me that she/he can't remember anything when she/he was drunk. Is it true? or not? I want to get your opinion about this? how will you measure the drunkness of a person who can't remember anything? Have you experience this? what was happened?

If someone gets really drunk, sometimes they will wake up the next day and not remember. It's very common. However, I don't believe it happens to absolutely everyone. It depends on the person, and how much they had to drink. I don't think you could say whether or not someone is lying about something like that, because it does happen quite often.

Well I hate to tell you this but depending on how drunk you are. There are times when you don't remember things you've done or said. Believe me they can come back and bit you in the rear. I don't drink that much anymore, but I use to drink way too much. I woke up 1 day with an empty 1/5 of Jack Daniels on my floor. Yes, I drank the whole thing and remember nothing. My friends got me to my room, in bed and placed the bottle in the center of my room. Good thing I had friends. I can only image where I would've ended up otherwise. On another occasion, I left a bar and past out next to a tree, I can remember talking to the tree but that's it. I think now how did I even survive. I know what these younger kid are doing at college parties. I just did it in the Military. Best Wishes!

I really don't know about this. I've been too drunk before; too drunk that I couldn't even pull myself up the table but I can still remember what happened that night. I think it depends on the person. There are some who really couldn't remember what happened to them.

i don't usually drink coz i don't really like the taste of it. but there's this one time that i tried drinking(coz the person i like was also drinking with our friends^^)well, i guess i got drunk.. but somehow i doubt by what your friend said, that she/he couldn't remember ANYTHING when she got drunk. well in my case, when i woke up after that day, i remember that i kinda flirting the guy i like which is i don't do when i'm in my sanity. i have this memory that i do those things uncontrollably. it's as if conscious, but at the same time, unconscious. but there's also things which is i couldn't remember. like my friends said that i'm shouting this other guy's name. that i'm screaming his name all the time, like in the middle of the night. i really couldn't remember that. so i guess there's something you can't remember after you woke up. but i doubt that you won't remember EVERYTHING.

i think drink affects different people differently. i'm not a big drinker, AND it takes me ALOT to get drunk, but sometimes i'll have a few drinks and be really drunk, and barely remember anything.. it does happen i assure you! ps] your wee avatar is well cute!

Wow you don't drink? What dontcha? Me too I don't drink, so I never had this kind of experience. But I can share my friends experience of being drunk. I heard and I do read a couple of article that being drunk makes one can't remember anything. I thinks it is true. My friend told me when he didn't remember anything when he was drunk, the last thing he remember is he was still drinking and the next thing is he's already in bed waking up in the morning. I guess there's no way to measure if a person already drunk and can't remember anything.

yah well you probably have to get totally wasted to to forget what actually happened, its true it happens but only if you drink too much that you pass out, doing a few shots and such wont probably do that, so if you are going to get drunk for the first time i suggest you go easy on this, don't drink too much.

It's true. I can drink anything but vodka, so centuries ago I drink like three sips and I soon grab my friend's arm and she didn't leave me the whole time, but I couldn't remember several hours of that later on! hehehe, dangerous.

I don't agree on that statement, being drunk can't remember anything. NO matter how drunk we are, there's still this sober side of in us, enabling us to remember some things. Being drunk is not an excuse for one to commit crimes, use it to their advantage to put off any blames on them. If one can't drink, they should not be drinking in the first place. If they get drunk, it's due to their own irresponsibilty to take care of themselves.

Drinking can cause blackouts. People who drink too much, can have blackouts. It is a rare condition but it does happen. Most people who say they can't remember anything after a night out drinking, are just wishing they didn't remember what they did. Both conditions are definitly possible. The level of drunkeness has little to do with the behavior. The state has defined what the level of drunkness is. That doesn't always effect the behavior as the more someone drinks over time, the more it takes to achieve the say 'buzz.'

yeah I heard this too from my friends who usually got drunk but honestly I don't believe them because sometimes they said it just to make an excuse to what they did or what they committed maybe because they feel embarrassed to know that they did what is beyond their imagination that they can, so for me it's not true they just making excuses, anyway I don't drink as well that's just my opinion..

I've never been so drunk I don't remember anything. I remember acting like a complete fool after a few drinks when I was young and I remember wishing I didn't remember anything.

I don't believe that if you are drunk you cant remember anything. For me based on my own experience, I was drunk one time and I remembered all things happened to me. I was able to went home...

Back in college, we had times when my friends and I go out for a drink on weekends. I am not really into drinking a lot that is why when I think that I have had enough I will ask them that I am done and they should not force me to drink anymore and they respect that. However, there are friends of mine that just keeps on going even if they cannot take it anymore and so they become so drunk that they used to be all over the place. They just keep on repeating the things they say and they move around a lot. Next thing you know is they are down on the floor. I often carry them after that and I think that there is truth that they have a hard time remembering what happened that night. It was fun.
