    Hi all, my boyfriend and I have been attending a charity event organised by my dad local to our homes. It involves cars and we all camp for a weekend. I've been working split shifts whilst this had been happening and I've been going when I'm not at work.
    I got there at 10pm and my boyfriend was really drunk, I've got no idea how much he's had to drink, he said something about 16 pints, but I can't imagine it's anywhere near as much as that!

    Anyway after much persuading I got him to go to bed at 11:30 because he could barely stand up, anyway, 2 hours later I've managed to get him to mum and dads house and into bed, after about 20 mins if being in bed he threw up, so I made him wash his teeth and have half a glass of water to help hydrate him.

    I'm completely t-total, drink really doesn't bother me, but I'm worrying about going to sleep incase he's sick again and he chokes on it. As he's been such already, is it likely he would be sick again? And how long will it take for him to sober up to a safe stage?

    Just make sure he's sleeping on his side. In the recovery position is ideal so that if he is sick again, he won't choke. It could be a couple more hours before he starts recovering properly.
    It's been a while since I've ever been like that but the following morning I used to stick to liquids. Milk or non fizzy lucozade/powerade were my hangover drinks of choice as for some reason I could never stomach plain water.

    He's feeling much better thanks, I on the other hand am feeling not so good. He decided not to just be sick in one bathroom, but all three! So I've had lots of cleaning to do! Thanks for the tips and advise :)

    Three too many if you ask me. He should clean up his own mess.

    Wow you're a keeper. If I was caught throwing up once after drinking I'd be kicked out the house (after being made to clean it up myself).

    You cleaned it up :nono: :nono: :nono:

    I can imagine the reply I'd get from my other half if 1. I were to get in such a state, then 2. suggest she cleaned my mess :suicide:
