That's a very general question and not very China-related Wenna. But to quickly answer your question, one of the main reasons foreigners drink is to be social. For many of us, the foundation of our social lives are pubs and clubs. People go there to meet others and alcohol helps gives people an extra boost of confidence. I personally drink to lose my inhibitions and just let go. Mostly, it's fun being drunk and you end up being a lot more social.

There are different levels of being "drunk" Wenna.

The level you described is not fun, and people that drink on purpose so that they black out and throw up are either stupid or don't know anything about how much they can hold.

Just because you get tipsy or drunk does not mean you are going to be blacking out, throwing up and getting a hang over the next morning, so I think you should learn to make that distinction in your mind.

Like Coffahoilc said, people all over the world drink to be more social and have fun....and you know what it works!

This is China-related coffaholic, I didn't ask why foreigners like to get drunk but people! Don't make it all about foreigners.

I drink, but never let myself get drunk, I can control, know when to stop. And when I told people I've never been drunk, they don't believe it and after they believe they show that face, like I lost so much fun. I never get drunk, but I saw enough drunkers, it's not cool at all, neither foreigners or Chinese.

I had the most alcohol in my life 2years ago. Had 7 different alcohol one night and walked back the hotel alone, didn't end up sleep on the snow or weak up with some stranger on my bed.

Just wondering how much fun can one have if something happen to you when u r that drunk?

And Njord sorry that u cannot live ur life healthily in China, guess u r already an alcoholic, as u r right there r to many people like me, because this is China, how about that?

I keep my Chinese girlfriend drunk because it halps her realize she is wrong, whenever we argue over futile things. After a long day at work, all I want to do is to sit and relax while enjoying my freshly made cafe latte with a hint of cinnamon and cocoa. Sometimes, my Chinese girlfriend cheats and prepares my drink way before I come back so I tell her she is wrong, but then she would rabble babble things about laundry took too long, scrubbing the bathroom was hard or vacuuming the place was moar complicated than usual.

Of course I explain her she is wrong, because with goodwill and good organization everything can be done efficiently and on time, but she wouldn't listen because she's too busy yelling and shaking her hands in the air. She looks like a Chinese singer performing a live show, my silly Chinese girlfriend!

I usually serve her a bottle of red wine and after drinking 3/4 of it, she understands she is wrong and apologize. I love my Chinese girlfriend because she is comprehensive of her mistakes. And while she's drinking moar and finishing the last quart of the wine bottle "because of taste good", I explain to her how not to be wrong again. She still does but because it's her, I have the patience to endlessly correct her for being wrong. Even after the bottle, she's still my delicate oriental swan, so i don't see any sympton you described, Wenna. Again, you are wrong.

It‘s my right to not answer any of ur questions, and it's ur right to answer mine. And I should say, u r really dumm and it sounds u see ur ayi(housekeeper) as ur girlfriend and u r trying ur best to make her to be an alcoholic with ur everyday bottle of red wine.
And it's more, help~ please I know it's hard to learn English, I learned a lot when people here told me I spelled wrong, why can't u ever learn?
Or maybe I am right, u only live in ur own world, imaging ur ayi as gf is one part of ur life, I am pity u.

You are moar wrong Wenna... I'm actually considering hiring an ayi because my Chinese girlfriend is not really improving on her dance move, but Ludovico told me they were like 'Mericans CSI investigators, but the Chinese ayi version... It's scary! And my Chinese girlfriend, despite all of her good will, isn't really the best when it comes to ironing shirts. And she always forget spots on the ground. It often causes arguments and then the bottle of wine. You know as well as I do she is wrong, but red wine really improves her ability to realize and understand her mistake. I guess alcohol doesn't work for you Wenna, so it would be great halp if you could tell us what can make you realize and understand you are wrong.

Of course there are tons of good stuff about China, my Chinese girlfriend being the first one! And food and dumplings! But no Larry, Sandy or Patsy. At least Baylee-Ann is coming from 'Merica in two days! You know, I really like the countary, because i have created a bond with my minions. It will pain me the day I am relocated.

You are not China, wenna. It's not because you are wrong that China is wrong. I learned so many things since I first arrived in this countary, it's unbelievable! Find your way to understand why you are wrong, and tell it to your next boyfriend! You will have a happy couple!

It's always fun to have a drink or two with some nice company Wink but you gotta know your threshold! I like to be borderline, it spices things up!

And Wenna, never give up a fight! You're one of the few Chinese girl here who gives good advices. If they're all true, then everyone here will one day realize and think about what you said!

I rarely get really drunk any more, usually only 3 drinks. But wenna 7 drinks OMG,???
To the Canadian Drinking Champion 4 years running, from the Great White North, that doesn't seem like much. Once after drinking during the day, I went out and drank 23 beers with 23 shots of rye. I managed to get around,,, managed to get my car wrapped around a train, managed to get arrested,,, ahh the stories I have,,, and the best part i beat the impaired charges..aah the good old days,,,
see wenna do you know how much entertainment and trilling stories i have provided during the years for everyone to enjoy.And just think soon I will be there,, maybe take a Poutine dance class or two, but I've been thinking maybe China shouild make me emporer. I will make the country fun. Poutine can have a national program as secretary of dance. Let me know, I'll expect an entourage at the airport as i'm leaving mine behind. Cool Cool

I'm surprised no one has mention the pathetic 'wrestling' Chinese men have drinking Chinese 'white wine'.

Everyday I see a Chinese businessman with his shirt hanging out, his head rolling in circles and the inability to control one of his legs, being aided by a colleague to get into a taxi.

Last week a military officer had obviously had a little too much and returned his hotpot in the middle of the restaurant while I watched on horrified.

It doesn't seem to matter what time of day it is either. There will be a band of drunken Chinese guys, among them, always one who has completely lost it.

He is the one who shouts (seemingly angrily) and waves his hands in the air while banging on the table and treating the waitresses like slaves. He's the one who pees with the door open so everyone can see him and misses the target because he is losing his ability to stand.

He is the guy who sits at a westerners table speaking Chinese even though he has been told that nobody understands and has to be eventually dragged away from the table after saying gambei and hello more than a hundred times.

He is the guy in the street that while his friend is talking to the taxi driver wanders away to annoy people, collapses on the ground unconscious or vomits on trees, cars,people, animals, pathway, road, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.

I drink more than my fair share, but I've never needed help to get home, nor have I embarrassed myself or others.

People like to get that buzz....plus if your with a couple of guys and your a girl....they will try to get the girl drunk so they can take advantage of her....Usually girls get drunk faster than men because they have a lower tolerance to the alcohol. If a girl wants to hang with the boys it could end up being a bad mistake. I know fighters sometimes drink alcohol because after they drink so much they don't feel much pain. That's another reason. Depression and drinking alone is a sign that somebody may want to commit suicide. So you should watch out for people who like to drink alone. That's not good at all!

Wanna tell you a story,
about the house-rent blues
I come home one Friday,
had to tell the landlady I'd done lost my job
She said that don't comfort me,
long as I get my money next Friday
Now next Friday come I didn't get the rent,
and out the door I went

So I goes to the landlady,
I said, "You let me slide?"
I'll have the rent for you tomorrow.
the next day I don't know
So said let me slide it on you know people,
I notice when I come home in the evening
She ain't got nothing nice to say to me,
but for five year she was so nice
Loh' she was lovy-dovy,
I come home one particular evening
The landlady said, "You got the rent money yet?",
I said, "No, can't find no job"
Therefore I ain't got no money to pay the rent
She said "I don't believe you're tryin' to find no job"
Said "I seen you today you was standin' on a corner,
leaning up against a post"
I said "But I'm tired, I've been walkin' all day"
She said "That don't confront me,
long as I get my money next Friday"
Now next Friday come I didn't have the rent,
and out the door I went

So I go down the streets,
down to my good friend's house
I said "Look man I'm outdoors you know,
can I stay with you maybe a couple days?"
He said "Uh, Let me go and ask my wife"
He come out of the house,
I could see in his face
I know that was no
He said "I don't know man, ah she kinda funny, you know"
I said "I know, everybody funny, now you funny too"
So I go back home
I tell the landlady I got a job, I'm gonna pay the rent
She said "Yeah?" I said "Oh yeah"
And then she was so nice,
loh' she was lovy-dovy
So I go in my room, pack up my things and I go,
I slip on out the back door and down the streets I go
She a-hollerin' about the front rent, she'll be lucky to get any back rent,
she ain't gonna get none of it
So I stop in the local bar you know people,
I go to the bar, I ring my coat, I call the bartender
Said "Look man, come down here", he got down there
So what you want?

One bourbon, one scotch, one beer
Well I ain't seen my baby since I don't know when,
I've been drinking bourbon, whiskey, scotch and gin
Gonna get high man I'm gonna get loose,
need me a triple shot of that juice
Gonna get drunk don't you have no fear
I want one bourbon, one scotch and one beer
One bourbon, one scotch, one beer

But I'm sitting now at the bar,
I'm getting drunk, I'm feelin' mellow
I'm drinkin' bourbon, I'm drinkin' scotch, I'm drinkin' beer
Looked down the bar, here come the bartender
I said "Look man, come down here"
So what you want?

One bourbon, one scotch, one beer
No I ain't seen my baby since the night before last,
gotta get a drink man I'm gonna get gassed
Gonna get high man I ain't had enough,
need me a triple shot of that stuff
Gonna get drunk won't you listen right here,
I want one bourbon, one shot and one beer
One bourbon, one scotch, one beer

Now by this time I'm plenty high,
you know when your mouth a-getting dry you're plenty high
Looked down the bar I say to my bartender
I said "Look man, come down here", he got down there
So what you want this time?
I said "Look man, a-what time is it?"
He said "The clock on the wall say three o'clock
Last call for alcohol, so what you need?"

One bourbon, one scotch, one beer
No I ain't seen my baby since a nigh' and a week,
gotta get drunk man so I can't even speak
Gonna get high man listen to me,
one drink ain't enough Jack you better make it three
I wanna get drunk I'm gonna make it real clear,
I want one bourbon, one scotch and one beer
One bourbon, one scotch, one beer

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
