Getting horribly drunk by drinking with a straw/mocha spoon - do you think it's fact or fiction?

DreamWolf DreamWolf
Sure those youngsters go to the bar with straws, and I even heard a story from my parents once that a friend of theirs got seriously drunk drinking only a small can of beer - with a mocha spoon... He didn't believe it was possible until that day... ^^

So, do you think it can really happen, or do people just "believe themselves into getting that drunk"?

Note here for those who don't know what I mean here: some people say that if you drink alcohol using a straw or a small spoon, a mocha spoon for example, then it makes you drunker than you would get just drinking them from a glass/bottle... So now you know... ^^

I don't believe it makes you drunker.... but you may get drunk faster if you are sipping drinks all night mindlessly. If I get mixed drinks, i usually get a straw since I'm so use to soda and everything (plus I have sensitive teeth, and the cold bugs me), so I usually end up drinking more than I planned on since I'm just sipping along

In that case, no I don't believe that. It's got everything to do with alcohol percentage and nothing to do with a straw vs not.

That's not entirely true, speed definitely matters.

You can shotgun a beer and get more of a buzz than if you were to sip it.
I can drink faster through a straw then I can through a can or bottle so I can get drunk more rapidly, not necessarily "horribly drunk"

It's been scientifically proven that drinking through a straw does not get you drunk. It's the amount of alcohol consumed and your tolerance for that alcohol.

What sXeVegan said. There's been plenty of studies to show that drinking through a straw does nothing to you physically.

It does nothing. Being drunk is based on your blood alcohol content. Blood alcohol content (or BAC) requires alcohol to be in your blood. The only way to do that is to drink it. Using a spoon would change nothing.

Yes I believe this, I heard it has something to do with the sucking motion of your mouth causes it to be absorbed faster. Something like that lol

It comes down to the speed. It's easier to overconsume when you are sucking your drink through a straw; I think it mostly boils down to not paying attention to how much is in the glass and how fast you're drinking it.

So, yeah. Rate of consumption, not method of consumption.

This. Exactly.

The only considerable difference a straw would make could be speed of drinking. If you were to suck down a whole mixed drink through a straw in a minute or two, sure you would feel it faster than if you sipped the drink at a normal pace. Other than that, it could have no effect. It would be closer to doing a shot than drinking a drink. If you were sipping on the straw at the same pace as you would normally drink it without one, it would have no effect. I'm guessing it would be mostly a placebo effect if one has heard and believes that a straw will get you more drunk.
