That's true, in most studies that give the patients being studied either vodka or tonic but told it's vodka/tonic depending on what they get; they act as if they are drinking what they are told.

YDI, not for being drunk on a non-alcoholic drink, but for even allowing yourself to act overly drunken. Even if they served alcohol, do you still think it would be okay to announce that you aren't responsible enough to know your limits?

I dont know about that, I REALLY wanted to get drunk and was drinking mixed vodka drinks, but it didn't happen. Guess I'm not a light weight. Haha.

In OPs defense, it was probably the placebo effect. I don't think the OP was consciously acting drunk. This effect can seriously be very strong, even to the point where 9/10 test subjects actually felt drunk after drinking flavoured water and being told that it was vodka.

Yes, after maybe one or two drinks you can convince yourself that you're tipsy even if you're actually not. But by the way OP described it, it sounded as though she had several drinks, and by that point you should be able to tell. The placebo effect only goes so far.

Hear, hear. Back in my dating days, a girl would barely have one drink and become a tiger, then blame the alcohol for their out-of-character behavior. You knew what they really wanted and alcohol was a convenient scapegoat. Ironically, I ended up marrying a mean drunk. Alcohol doesn' t make her horny, it makes her meaner and bitchier!

nodayliketoday, Shhhhhhhhhh! Not too loud. We don't want them to know we know, but alcohol turns the apparent "nice girls" into sexually aggressive sluts. And we likeses our slutses!

haha plexico, I was thinking more about guys that get drunk and lairy and have fights. Or for that matter, women that get drunk and lairy and have fights. Alcohol as social and sexual lubrication is a wonderful thing and I wasn't insulting that ;)

haha this reminds me of a CSI when the girl thought she was pregnant and went through all the symptoms like stomach growing a little and even lactating yet she was a virgin.. very possible. so maybe this is the same effect? but still shouldn't you be able to tell the difference... dont know havent drank alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages so dont judge what im saying... either way you should have held back on how you acted ... 1st impressions say a lot... and you said a lot.- literally.
