Lightweight

This is probably going to sound a bit weird, but here goes.

When I was about 14/15ish and I first started drinking, I could put back quite a lot. I was only ever once sick from drinking, even though I drank quite a bit, quite often.

Due to loads of nasty horrible things happening to me when I'd been drinking, I gave it up altogether from 16 to 18.

When I started drinking again, I got into a horrible stage. No matter how little I drink now, I normally end up being sick. I can have 2 5%ish drinks at 9pm, feel completely sober, but I wake up between 4 and 6am afterwards and throw up.

The only thing that I can think has changed in that time is that 1) I'm a lot bigger, which should make me less of a lightweight if anything and 2) I became a vegetarian.

I was also told that some people who have had overdoses end up not being able to hold their drink, but I haven't seriously OD'd for years. Could it be that it takes a while for your body to really be affected by overdoses?

help!

    Hey Snow White.
    I was just wondering if you're on any anti-depressents?

    I'm on prozac and it makes me a right light weight.

    What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well.

    Nope. I've never been to the doctor about anything about my moods, & didn't get affected badly enough by any overdoses to go to hospital or anything.

    Overdoses, especially paracetomol, affect the stomach lining making it harder to hold drink.

    It matters not who won or lost, but how you place the blame.

    But can this happen years after the overdoses? I was fine holding drink before after my overdoses, it's just suddenly that this has happened.
