Default What alcohol you won't drink anymore and the back story!

Looking at the picture thread gave me the idea...what alcohol will you never drink again and what is the story behind it? Dumb drunk stories also welcome!

Mine is whiskey. Got so drunk on Jim Beam in high school (30 yrs ago) that I was throwing up for two days! Most likely had alcohol poisoning. Worse part was it was on a school trip where I snuck a 1/2 gallon on the bus. Got caught (drunk) and was sent home on a plane. My parents were very proud of me!

I have had a couple of shots since, but it was at a bachelor party, where I didn't want to refuse the drink!

Let's hear 'em.

Gin, too many blackouts. I've been told I go from normal to mumbling idiot. quit 30 years ago.
Any whiskey, first time I drank whiskey, it was some rotgut that we chased with a garden hose back in the 70's. Smell still bothers me.

Gin.... As a kid I got drunk on it twice. Both times I got in fist fights with friends of mine. Woke up the next morning and didn't remember why I was mad..... haven't touched it in 30 years.

Jaeger (if that’s how it’s spelled). Had a party 15 years ago and drank a wee bit too much. To this day the smell alone makes me sick.

Tequilla

I was down in key west and ordered a shot of tequilla, she served it in a glass with about 1/2 inch in the bottom, I said, that's not a shot, she added about another half inch, I said, that's still not a shot. She filled up the glass and said, Drink up cowboy. That's why I don't drink tequilla anymore

My brother went to a company event where they had two margarita slushy machines, mild, strong. He said it was a great icebreaker, everybody had a tequilla story

Seagram’s 7 whiskey, or any whiskey for that matter.

As a teen, my buddy and I spent the better part of the night drinking it straight from the bottle as we partied at the beach near his house.

I spent the rest of the night vomiting out of his second story window. By all rights, I probably should be dead. Just the smell is enough to make me gag even more than 30 years later 😁

Gin

Buddy and I used to keep several bottles of Bowman's (bottom shelf) hidden in his parent's garage in high school. I could gag just thinking about it.

Miller Lite too but that's just because it's awful.

Cheap Mexican restaurant margaritas. The type of Mexican restaurant that you order by the #. I'll stick to cerveza in that scenario.

I don't care for Bloody Marys b/c I don't like tomato juice.

Martini's can f-off b/c I hate olives.

I think Everclear is the only booze I just will 100% avoid.

Smirnoff Raspberry Twist. Got projectile vomit drunk off it when I was 18. I actually can smell it in my nostrils now just thinking about it. Vodka in general now, really. Won't touch the stuff. Turns me into an absolutely miserable, nasty, a-hole. Also, as I got older, I found the hangovers were more depressing and miserable from vodka.

Now, I very rarely drink hard alcohol. I am 99% a beer drinker with the exception of a nice quality rum or scotch.

Funny story, for my bachelor party we were nailing shots of Jagermeister. My future FIL was there, going toe to toe with me. I found out later, he had the bartender give him shots of pepsi! He was a great guy!

Sailor Jerry - I get very mean when I’ve had a few. Twice I’ve done something I wasn’t proud off, still aren’t, after a few and haven’t touched it since.

This. At a party and a buddy made me laugh so hard while doing a shot it came through my nose. Oh the burn.

Jose, he's a bad man and no friend of mine....

New Year's Eve party 35+ years ago, wife 6+ months pregnant and in HE walks. Started making the rounds with a little salt and lime and the next thing I know, it's the next afternoon, I wake up in a spare bedroom, and I'm hearing it from my wife about what I did to ruin the evening for all. Lots of apologies and thank goodness for good friends who got me in the car, followed my wife home some 35-40 miles, got me out of the car and into the bed, and went back to continue the festivities. To this day, the thought of tequila turns my stomach.......

Gin. Jr in HS on a field trip to Savannah. After 10pm bed check four of us snuck out, went downtown, found a bar and bought a fifth of gin. Walking down an alley, take a swig and pass to the next guy.

I finally had the sense to get us back to the motel. Went in back entrance and great, a soft drink machine. Put my money in and just hit the first button I saw. Nehi grape!

We go up to our room and finish the fifth. Me chasing each swig with Nehi grape.

Should have known I would someday be an ECU fan because I did "paint it purple" that night.

All these years later I still cannot stand gin or Nehi grape.

Anything that has come out my nose.

So far the list is:
Southern Comfort
Tequila (I make a rare exception)
Black Velvet

Relative to JagerMeister, that's German for "I can whoop 'em all".

Gin. No back story besides the hangovers are just terrible for me when I drink it.
