Very light drinker worse than flyweight

I've never been a big drinker but I've been going to a lot of parties and clubs and stuff lately. What has worried me is the fact I can seem to drink a respectable amount of alcohol be it hard liquor or beer.
I'm Asian so I don't know if this has any part of me not being able to drink a lot.
I usually max out 1 beer before I feel buzzed and if I drink anymore I usually get sick and either feel like throwing up or throw up.
I don't think there's anything wrong with my body or health but 1 beer sounds almost absurd. All my friends go through a case or more. I feel like a puss cause I can't drink for shit

I'm like you. Maybe our bodies simply have trouble breaking down the alcohol in our system? Allergic?

Just because you can't drink doesn't mean you're not "cool" though. You also save yourself a lot of money.

Let me guess - you must be at that young, impressionable stage of your life.

It's been covered before... many of us asians are missing the enzyme that breaks down the alcohol so it remains coursing through our system... which is why sometimes after 1 beer or even < one beer we feel it. Other ethnicities have the enzyme so when they drink alcohol their body breaks it down so they don't feel the effects unless they consume a large enough quantity.

There's nothing you can do because it's genetic.

In my case, one drop of alcohol, beer, wine, or hard liquor, and i can feel it... think Barney from the Simpsons lol. You might as well hook up a needle and inject alcohol directly into my veins as that's what it feels like.

You might be allergic to beer. I'm the same with beer, after 1 beer i have a fuckin headache and feel like puking but with hard alcohol I'm great. But yes us asians are quite weak when it comes to alcohol. There's a bunch of stuff you can do to help you drink better if you really want to drink. Like eating lots of bread, and milk prior to drinking.

There's also the pepcid AC trick if you get super red. Look it up if you havent heard of it.

I know how you feel. A few sips of alcohol and my face/body becomes crazy red and my heart rate noticeably goes up. It's like a shot of adrenaline but instead of feeling the pump, I get sleepy.

i read it's not good for you with that pepcid ac trick, especially if you're someone that drinks often and consequently use pepcid ac at the same time

I sometimes wish I could get drunk off one drink. Usually after about 10 ounces I START to feel something. Its not uncommon for me to drink close to 20 ounces in a night and I'm still functioning better then most people.

I have super low tolerance too. I would love to appreciate wine the way others do with a nice dinner. But when other people drink alcohol (beer/wine), they get a nice buzz, high and become more social. For me I turn get a pounding headache, feel tired and want to throw the alcohol up. After I throw it up, I instantly feel better. So I figure, why would I pay money to feel like shit? lol Hence, I have stopped long since.

You wanna try and stay on topic?
At least I interact with girls even if I get rejected. Unlike you who probably has irritable bowel syndrome. Of course meaning you have to wear diapers cause you're always sharting everywhere. Dude, why you trying to start shit?
And if I'm 15 then you must be what.. like 2? Grow up a little

Palmface
why you accusing of someone with irritable bowel syndrome when you're making threads about moldy feet and horrible breath?
dont try to be a "keyboard warrior" and just let his comment slide or this thread will end up in FC again and add to your fame

PM'ing him wont help either
