Thirst Thursday: The 9 Stages Of Being Drunk

It’s Thirty Thursday! Time to go out and have “a few” drinks.

Most people hardly remember at what point they got drunk the previous night. Which makes perfect sense.

There’s a progression of drunkenness that starts when you have your first drink of the night and continues to get steadily more intense from there. They’re pretty easy to forget so read on:

Stage 1: The first sip

The only thing you’re drunk on at this point is the promise of a great night ahead. Click those glasses and drink up!

Stage 2: The buzz

You’ve had one or two drinks and you beginning to feel relaxed. You are a lot chattier and everything feels much more exciting that it was twenty minutes ago.

Stage 3: All friendly and nice

Everyone is now your best friend and you feel like they’re the nicest people alive. You are a whole lot louder and twenty times more confident. This is the part where you make so many friends in the bar that you most likely will forget about before the night ends.

Stage 4: The dancing

At this point, the alcohol levels are pretty high and all you want to do is show off your “amazing” dance moves. You sing along to almost all songs, while sipping your drink more frequently than before. You are even confident enough to go ask that cutey in the bar for a dance – which leads you to stage 5.

Stage 5: The Hook-up

Everyone in the club looks cute and your confidence levels are over the top. Now it’s up to you and your ‘wonderful’ drunken pick-up lines to either get you laid or alone at the end of the night.

Stage 6: Party-Don’t-Stop Mode

It’s pretty late but you are nowhere near done. You don’t care if you have work in the morning, or something important to attend the next day. It’s the best night ever and there is no way it’s ending this soon!

Stage 7: Hunger Pangs

This is where you find yourself at a fast food joint stuffing yourself with fries, burgers, pizza, anything meaty and greasy.

Stage 8: The journey home

You are exhausted and can’t wait to black out but the journey home seems to take forever. You blackout in the cab, the cab driver wakes you up, you stumble into the house but barely make it to your bed before out blackout again.

Stage 9: The morning-after

You wake up the following morning with a pounding headache, nauseous and can barely remember last night’s events. We hope you have no work today because you’ll have one hell of a day.
