    Rose of Yellow,

    You said “I have never heard the advice about mixing colors of alcohol being the problem, rather I think you all had too much alcohol and got alcohol poisoning.” I totally agree with you on the alcohol poisoning; it’s very easy to consume to much liquor to fast. Most people take a shot and when they don’t feel immediate effects take another and so on until they feel it’s effects; that’s usually when the alcohol poisoning has occurred. As for the mixing of dark and light liquors, it’s a popular belief that “The amount of alcohol in the blood rises more quickly after drinking liquor than after drinking beer. … Clear beverages like vodka, gin, and white wine contain less congeners than darker drinks like brandy, whisky, rum, and red wine. Mixing the congeners may increase stomach irritation.” It’s also a unwritten rule in the bar service industry not to mix dark and light or you’ll be cleaning all night.

    You brought up some very important medical advise and I’d like to thank you for adding that to the discussion.

    Sonia234,

    I fully agree with Anita. I am not condoning underage drinking. However when my brother made the same kind of mistake his first year of college I gave him this advise in conjunction with Anita’s advice. I believe knowledge is power and the more you know the more you grow. Moving forward from this mistake you will have to revisit the event (in your mind) and identify all the mistakes that were made, learn from them and vow not to make the same mistakes in the future. A few things to remember for the future Never combine liquor and drugs, the two do not mix well and will make you sick (it’s actually how a lot of young people passageway). Also when drinking liquor responsibly (I am not condoning underage drinking) never mix colors of liquors (brown with brown, clear with clear) again the two do not mix well and cause drastic reactions. Also, drinking as much water as you drink liquor is always best and fatty foods.

    I fully agree with Anita and was going to say the same thing. I myself am being ridicule for my relationship choices. Please understand that they have a different relationship with their parents than you. Allow them to heave the kind of relationship they want and you the freedom to do the same.

    A wise person once said.

    Family isn’t always blood. It’s the people in you life who want you in theirs; the ones who accept you for who you are. The ones who would do anything to see you smile & who love you no matter what.
