I had a BAC of .45 once, and I was very coherent and didn't even feel that drunk. I think it has to do with both your tolerance and your rate of
consumption. I can drink a lot, just not very fast. Remembering back on this, it took me over 12 hours of drinking to get this way. I had been
having bipolar problems and submitted myself to an inpatient clinic and they checked my BAC twice, to make sure it was correct and to figure out if I
needed to go in the tank for a while. Since I don't really get DT's upon withdrawal, they opted not to.
I find that if you drink heavily over an extended period, the novelty of the buzz begins to go away and you begin to feel less intoxicated/more sober.
Maybe it is just me, but a high tolerance can do that. Still though, with a .914 he must have felt like a pickle.
