I hope this is the right place for this. It’s about a drink, right?
A little background. I’m in my 30’s, and drink moderately. Maybe 2-3 beers once or twice a week, or I’ll split a bottle of wine with my husband. Once or twice a year, maybe, I’ll drink to excess, but just to the point of being unable to drive. I’ve not passed out or thrown up from drinking (other than the incident I’m about to tell you) since college. For some odd reason, until a couple of months ago, I’d never had tequila.
This night, back in August, I went out with some friends to a bar that had $2 margaritas. I had maybe 7 drinks total, two of which were margaritas, five of which were beers. By the end of the night, I was quite stumbly, but not falling down drunk. When I got home, I threw up until I thought I was going to die. I was a bit surprised as I’ve only ever thrown up from drinking twice before in my life, and both times I’d had much, much more to drink than that. The weird thing was afterwards. I felt awful for a week. Tired, weak, slightly nauseous. I lost about 8 pounds because I didn’t want to eat anything.
Then this Sunday, I was out with my neighbors, and one of them bought me a margarita. I drank about half of it, maybe 3-4 ounces total. That was the only alcohol I had all weekend. It made me really light-headed, and today, Tuesday, I still feel kinda crappy, a milder version of my week-long hangover.
Needless to say, no matter what I hear on here, I am never drinking anything containing tequila ever again. I’m just wondering if anyone has, or knows anyone who has a sensitivity to tequila or has experienced something similar. Some people will probably say that I just had too much to drink, and while you’re right, what interests me is the fact that the way I felt afterwards was so disproportionately bad, compared to how drunk I was.
