Well basically my friend is forcing me to drink half a bottle of vodka. I don't want to black out or get extremely drunk or hungover. I don't drink very often.

Any experienced vodka drinkers here? I just want to know whether half a bottle is too much, and if so what's the maximum safe amount?

yes, don't do that.

depends on the amount of blood your body contains, .. try 1/4 first, if you're not used to alcohol.

also get at least a triple-filtered, not a "standard" vodka. less fusel oils, less pain next day.

Often it's not about how much you drink, but the reckless things you do afterwards.

Cheers,

...and depending on the size of the bottle and how big you are half a bottle might just be enough to have you end up in A&E anyway. As an old fart I recommend you don't do it.

Thanks guys, I'll just stick to a few shots, 1/4 bottle max. You guys may have saved my life because I probably would have done it if I didn't post here Cheesy

Also keep in mind that vodka (at least for me) has delayed impact. This means you may feel that you can have some shot more, but in reality you already drank one too much  Shocked

The delay is about half an hour for most people.
And how big are the bottles?  Grin

Without your 'friend' noticing, replace the vodka with another clear colourless liquid and you're good to go! (so long as the replacement isn't Petrol....)

If you really want to do it eat a lot before doing it.  For a thing like this you can go into a coma or maybe die persecutioncomplex Shocked. My great-grandmother was drinking a glass of scotch every day and now has one hundred years  Cool, but this would all be in a bang.

Vodka is horrid, tastless stuff. You might as well drink turpentine (don't do that though). Blegh.

Also, drinking half a bottle of vodka may kill you if you drink it in one gulp. Do not do it.

I am a heavy Vodka drinker.

Take these things into consideration.

1) Vodka has a delayed timer, meaning you don't feel the effects until a bit after (5-10 minutes)
2) If you're anything like my Japanese friend, the above rule does not apply. The timer is about 2 seconds before you go red cheeked, and another 2 seconds before you plummet into a deep and undisturbed sleep.
3) Contrary to popular belief, good vodka is good for you in moderation.
4) There is good vodka and there is bad vodka. If you are outside of Russia and some other European countries, chances are you're drinking the bad vodka. Go to your local vodka house and get some good vodka.
5) If you're in this forum, I assume you have "some" willpower, even when drunk. Always be aware of yourself and you'll avoid doing stupid shit.
6) There are happy drunks and then there are depressed drunks. You won't know which one you are until you try. I'm a happy drunk. On the other spectrum, there are dangerous drunks. If you are a dangerous drunk, I automatically assume you're a spineless coward and a bitch with zero willpower. Excuse my french.

Here is a simple algorithm to help you out.

while(selfAware(this)) {
      drinkVodkaShot(1);
      yield return waitForMinutes(5.0f);
}

            drinkVodkaShot(1);

A wise and literary oriented roommate of mine in college wrote on my whiteboard many funny quotes about Java back in '98... The top right most though applies to vodka...

Believe it or not, I ended up doing the challenge on halloween. Woke up with bruises and cuts all along my arms and neck. Turns out I fell over in the bush while smashing glass bottles on rocks. I barely remember anything.

Not really a challenge, just plain stupidity. Enjoy your future, it's going down the shitter already.
