Question: How obvious is it that someone is drunk or tipsy!? PLEASE HELP!!?
around people that they do not know!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

In my experience, a person who's had too much to drink has glazed eyes, slurs their speech, speaks a little too loud and too freely about topics which are better left unmentioned, has a bit too much trouble standing up straight or walking a straight line, giggles too much about things that really aren't all that funny, and finds himself or herself to be terribly amusing and clever without saying or doing anything at all amusing or clever!. They usually have a certain unmistakable scent about them, too!. It's more obvious to someone who does know the person because, since alcohol releases inhibitions, he or she tends to act in ways that aren't characteristic!. So the quiet person suddenly becomes very talkative, the normally friendly person suddenly becomes very nasty and ill-tempered, the usually erudite person suddely becomes a loony!. But what usually tips the person off is saying or doing something incredibly tactless or stupid!. Especially if you see the person later, demand an explanation for that behavior, and the person not only doesn't explain it, but denies that it ever happened and claims that he or she would NEVER do such a thing!. Of course not -- not unless he or she had been drinking!. Which is precisely what happened!.

Of course, if this person is around folks who have no experience with drunks, THEY won't recognize it!. They'll just think the person is off his or her rocker!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

depends on how drunk , tipsy!.!.!.very hard to tell drunk depends on one holds there alcohol if your falling all over the place not that hard to tell ey!? if your standing normal, talking alot and seem to be very confident people will just assume your a confident person!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

It's pretty obvious!. Slurred words, suddenly being startled over something small, repeating the same sentence over and over, looking like you're about to fall asleep!.!.!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Depends on their personality!. If they're good at holding it down, then it could be nearly impossible to tell!. If they're a lightweight loudmouth outgoing person, then probably pretty easy!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

It depends on the person but anyone with a keen eye can usually spot it right off!.

In other words, DON'T try to get away with something you shouldn't if the results would be negative!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Slurring of words, talking loud, repeating themselves, acting a little more goofy than usual, laughing a lot!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

They slur their words, slow with fine motor skills, they walk with a stagger, keep repeating themselves and their eyes are not fully openWww@FoodAQ@Com
