This story is about a year and a half old now, but I have just now decided to submit it for whatever reason. I am 20 years old now and I still drink, somtimes heavily. I had drank many times before the night when this all happened and I had thrown up plenty of times as well as blacked at previously, but on this night I went way overboard.
It all started off like usual myself and my now ex-girlfriend went to a party at my friends house so I got a shitload of Avalanche. For several weekends my girlfriend and I had been on a big Avalanche and Aftershock kick, and I had gotten really drunk for a couple weekends in a row and she was pissed at me for getting so drunk the last few times, so I was supposed to 'take it easy' on this night. So I agreed but as I started drinking I stopped careing and I just kept taking shots, one after the other. In about 1 - 2 hours we had drank all the Avalanche. I had no idea how many shots I took because I blacked out for a while somewhere around 13, but a friend of mine and I estimate that it was about 20.
So after the bottle is finished I started wandering around looking for my girlfriend and then she later informed me that I found her and we got into it about me being so fucked up and I punched a wall. Then I proceeded to stagger outside onto my friends pourch which is concrete. The last thing I remember is falling forward onto my face and laying face down in my own puke. The next thing I know I wake up inside the house with a wet wash rag on my face at 4:30 am, and all my friends are like 'Holy shit he's alive.' Apparently while I was unconscious in my own vomit my friends found me and were worried about me. They carried me in and wiped my face off and watched me to make sure I didnt choke or anything.
So next day I go home and have to go out to eat with my dad and have to pretend I not hungover. My dad thought I had the shits because I kept going to the bathroom to puke at Texas Roadhouse. To sum it all up, I ended up being sick and not eating hardly anything for 4 days. I lost 10 pounds and I didnt drink for about 6 months. I couldnt eat mints or chew gum that was similar to the flavor of avalanche for a while. That was the drunkest and sickest I have ever been in my life. Being that drunk was great but being as sick as I was and the threat of being taken to the hospital sucked. The whole thing didnt really scare me, but made me realize that there is a very real possibility that on any given night I could accidently drink myself to death.
