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.
How the hell can you have one too many of a non alcoholic drink?
this further proves my theory that usually being "drunk" is all in your head.
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!
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.
Nervosity and insecurity can make non-alcoholic beverages work like a placebo as long as the non-alcoholic part is not revealed.
