Do you feel less drunk when you are being active?

Asked by ashxmy_lovee (161 points ) August 16th, 2012 from iPhone

When you’re walking around and moving a lot do you not feel as intoxicated as you would if you were sitting down?

On a lower level of intoxication, I wouldn’t feel it as much if I’m being physically active. However, on greater levels of alcohol consumption, really doesn’t make much of a difference after a bit. I feel it whether I’m active or not.

If I’m really intoxicated, moving around makes me want to puke.

IIRC, exercise can help you sober up, at least if you’re not too drunk.

Yup! I’ll be drunk as a skunk and dancing and having a great time. It’s when I stop and calm down for the night that I realize, Oh crap!

Generally, I never feel drunk until the next morning when I’m at work and still not sober.

In general, yes. I’ve been quite drunk but didn’t notice it as much until I sat down and realized how dizzy I was…

I’m actually just the opposite. If I’m sitting around the table drinking, I don’t feel the full effect of it until I stand up to go to the bathroom or something. Maybe it depends on how you start out…

The opposite for me too. I can sit down and drink some and then when I get up I can’t balance easily and everything is a bit more blurry and I realize I’m drunk, then I go to the bathroom, look into the mirror with a big grin on my face “yeaah, I’m drunk”.

Yes when I have consumed a large amount of alcohol and I just sit around I tend to be a little more woozy than if I am dancing or even doing something that requires movement.
However if I sit around and drink and socialize when I stand I definitely feel the liquor.

No, I feel drunk more quickly if active whereas sitting down, say at dinner with guests then I occasionally don’t feel drunk until I stand up.
