haha are you serious? drunk?
I know how much alcohol my brothers have to consume in order just to get tipsy.
if you’re talking about boys below yeshiva gedolah age i’d call it sad that they even have access to enough alocohol to get drunk…
..and if theyr getting drunk in yeshiva on friday nights in yeshiva gedolah – well i’m sorry but the people [strong]supplying[/strong] the alcohol must be the crazy ones. it usually takes more than a few cups of wine or alcohol for the majority of boys to get properly “drunk”.
Dont ban drinking!! Just don’t supply soo much!!!July 3, 2012 3:29 am at 3:29 am #882567jbaldy22Member
@shira1988 maybe your brothers have a high tolerance there were guys in yeshiva in my day who would get drunk off of 2 and half beers and this was in beis medrashJuly 3, 2012 5:22 am at 5:22 am #882568ToiParticipant
Most guys need 7-10 beers to get drunk. a guy who gets drunk on two beers is a wuss.July 3, 2012 7:32 am at 7:32 am #882569HealthParticipant
Toi -“Most guys need 7-10 beers to get drunk.”
Now this statement is Not true for most males.
The avg. male weighs about 180 pounds and if he drinks 6 beers (12 oz/ beer) he is intoxicated (drunk). His BAC (blood alcohol level) is 0.13.
“0.13-0.15 BAC: Gross motor impairment and lack of physical control. Blurred vision and major loss of balance. Euphoria is reduced and dysphoria (anxiety, restlessness) is beginning to appear. Judgment and perception are severely impaired.”
In other words -DRUNK!July 3, 2012 12:10 pm at 12:10 pm #882570SayIDidIt™Participant

RABBAIM, I actually meant to say the opposite, I guess I was concise but not clear. There are lots of good Yeshiva boys. My nighbor is a Rebbi/Menahel. He asked if we could host a few Bochurim over Shabbos. We had to be out of town that Shabbos. My wife told his wife to keep that in mind. When we came back Motzi Shabbos, the house was as we left it plus a box of chocolates (either from them or the Rebbi’s family) with a thank you note. The point is there are good and bad. Alcohol has crept into Yeshivas. It needs to be controlled.

Chocolate??? Flavored with liquor??
Just kidding………….July 5, 2012 4:37 am at 4:37 am #882573
Ok well 7-10 Beers is ALOT of beer to supply!! Do you know how expensive that stuff is?? My question is who on earth is supplying this amount to yeshiva bochurim! Can’t get drunk off beer that isn’t there… even 6 beers is alot of money. Even if you’re only hosting 4 yeshiva bochurim every shabbos meal you’re going to spend a fortune each week on beer.
And incidentally we did have a bochur that got drunk in our house – we had vodka out and he drank half the bottle till he couldn’t go home. But we should have taken it away longg before he got that far! They don’t get drunk as a bad thing but it seems to be a “strength” test with these boys to see who can hold it without getting drunk… hence drunk bochurim. I dunno I don’t think its such a big deal its just one of those teenage things they do, wrong or not… but I’ll probably have a different opinion when my boys get to that age 🙂July 5, 2012 5:49 am at 5:49 am #882574jbaldy22Member
based on my experience i agree with Health also guys are prone to exaggeration in addition guys can get drunk faster with a chaser. a 6 pack of beer is not that expensive – 5.50 in nj or 6.00 in ny and can be gotten for less if you know where to look.July 5, 2012 8:53 am at 8:53 am #882575HealthParticipant

You can ask the same question on cigs. It’s their parents who dole out the money. They weren’t Mechanech their kids right to Not smoke and/or drink and they don’t know how to get them help for their addiction(s). So they take the easy way out and pay for whatever they want.July 5, 2012 12:09 pm at 12:09 pm #882576July 5, 2012 11:27 pm at 11:27 pm #882577
Ah well I guess we grew up diferently we had to pay for everything ourselves. I don’t get how parents send their kids to sem / yeshiva with a ton of money. What do parents think their kids r gna do with the money?? Buy books? Cigarettes and drinks r only the tip of the Iceberg…
