Usually they aren't lying, that really does happen. I have a guy friend who is paying child support for a child he still doen's remember conceiving, he doesn't even remember the mom, he just knows that this lady with a DNA test is making him man up to it. Serves him right but it's still sad.
Your friend sounds like shes lying, but it is true that you can have memory gaps when your really really drunk.
But you wouldn't forget the whole night, you would only forget bits and pieces of it.
I have personally blacked out for 5 hours after having half a glass of vodka and sunkist. Its possible. But after talking with friends my drink was possibly drugged. So she might be a light weight or she's just thinks its funny
Dumb **** I've done
Blackouts are from severe binge drinking or can be prone to a chronic alcoholic. Blackouts are a sign of alcoholism. No excusses for the behavor.
Some people seem to have more "blackouts" then others. But I gotta think they are either drinking WAY more then you realize; or they are lying to avoid embarrassment.
Some yes, some no.
