How to build up a tolerance to alcohol?!

Question: How to build up a tolerance to alcohol!?
I turned 21 a few days and I've never been a big alcohol drinker!. I've gotten semi drunk one time!. Well most of my friends are older, and guys, and now that I can legally drink they want me to go out to bars, clubs, and parties more now!. So I was wondering how can I build up a tolerance to alcohol!. I don't want to have to get drunk to build up that tolerance either because I honestly don't think it's fun being drunk!. Now all I have to do is have one drink and I get all tired and fuzzy headed at first then after a while I get tipsy!. So any ideas!? I had the thought of drinking a little something every night with like my dinner but would that really build up a tolerance!?!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

The only way to build up your tolerance is to drink more!. Since you don't want to do that, cut back on your alcohol so you don't get addicted too early!.

When you go out with friends, take a multi or Vit B complex and drink plenty of water!. also, eat before you go!. Being a lightweight is nothing to be ashamed of!.

My brother in law doesn't drink at all and I've only seen my son in law drink twice in a year!. Me, I down a case of beer daily!. Pretty expensive habit!. I know I should quit, but I can't!. I'm addicted!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Why drink!? There are lots of people (including myself) who loathe the taste of alcohol!. My college friends always said, "Try this!. You'll like it!." I did try it!. Each time it was awful!. A bunch of them (without me) went off and got drunk, and one died in the car crash on the way back to the dorm!.

Some drink to forget, some drink because they are miserable, some drink to avoid responsibility!. Some drink to get pregnant without quite being able to remember who the father was!.

What's your reason!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

You can go to clubs and parties and not drink!. why should you have to if you don't enjoy it!? Just say it doesn't agree with you and ask for a soda!. Anyone who pressures you is just being defensive because they can't have a good time without alcohol and you don't need 'em!Www@FoodAQ@Com

The most difficult thing to say is no to a friend!. It seems like an insult that i am not with my friends!. But one should understand that a friend would always understand things which no one understands!. So one should always have the courage to say no to things which one does not like!. Simillarly You should speak to ur friends and tell them you dont like drinking!.!.!. I am sure they would understand!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

heres the truth there isnt a built in resistance to alcohol its a combination of factors wieght and also some folke have a low tolerance like from birth and are alergic to alcohol my family lived in NC in the mountains and they didnt allow alcohol sales there for 60 years and most folks didnt drink and the ones thats did like my family made it or drove 50 mile and they were cherokees and irish so it didnt go down to good they spent a lot of time fight and fueding and I found out i had no resistance myself and drank for 17 years and not a success i stank as i drank and got arressted and in fight sthis life style intails a lot of grief trust me i know waking up face down on a steel bench drunk beaten robbed and going to a judge still poisened isnt fun lets not even talk driving none of thes party people will take a day off to be the driver why its not COOL so some of them will kill someone maybe someone they love SOBER 20 yearsWww@FoodAQ@Com

Wow well if you honestly don't like the feeling and don't find it fun its rather a waste to build up your tolerance in more ways than one!. But I hate critical answers so I'd say buy a bottle of Everclear or Mohawk its just the generic brand, "they are 190proof pure grain alcohol" and a bottle of Fruit Juicy Red Hawaiin punch!. Start yourself off with half a shot to about 3 shots of the punch!. Drink it all at once then chase it with another gulp of the punch that'll help the taste its pretty strong for first time drinkers!. Drink about an hour before you go to bed or about 30 mins after you eat because the food with help with the effects!. Slowly work your way up to 2 shots that's the equivalent of 4 regular shots of 80proof liquor with is the norm from most booze or 4 beers!. I would only do this every other day so as not to kill your liver and kidneys too much!. White grape juice is also a good mixer!. Almost forgot to add make sure the juice is really good and cold if its warm or room temp you will spit it up!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
