: I am a 25 yr old male - healthy and strong. About two years ago I could drink until I threw up, stop and remember everything the next morning.
: Nowadays, I have a few drinks and can't remember anything in the morning. I am worried that it may be getting worse. Apparently I don't do anything extra ordinarily when I am drunk - but I can't remember it the next morning. I know alcohol has an effect on the hippocampus (sp?) which controls memory but I didn't realise this was a cumulative effect. Any info, advice would be appreciated.
: Cheers (oops)
This happened to me as well. My only solution was to quit drinking or buy lots of cars and leave them scattered around the city.
