oooookkkkkk... well first off number 1 is false, how in the world would alcohol get into your system faster if you drink it through a straw? it still goes into your mouth doesnt it? number 2, i dont think so but ive never tried it so i dont know, but i would think that its not true.

Stephybabe55, I think you have #1 stated wrong. From what I have heard, drinking from a straw gets you drunker. #2 makes absolutely no sense at all. If anything, the opposite would occur (become less drunk).

I've encountered people at bars who swear by the straw thing. Frankly, it's all in their heads. They're there to get drunk, it's gonna happen either way, and drinking from a straw won't speed it up any faster. Unless you drink fast through a straw, and savor the alcohol in a glass. Which, still doesn't make sense.

As far as water. It's a good idea to drink water if you are drunk, and also eat something.
Drinking water certainly won't make your get more drunk or have more severe hangovers. It's quite opposite actually.
