    Type 1 and Alcohol!?

    So i'm 18 years old and in my first year at university. I regulary go out and drink, and i must say i love it! I'm usually shy so drinking really brings me out of my shell and everyone says im a laugh when i'm drunk! So when i was diagnosed with type 1 i was determined NOT to stop drinking. I don't drink too often, about once a week, sometimes once every 2 weeks, sometimes less than that... but when i drink i REALLY drink. It doesn't take too much to get me REALLY drunk though (4, 5, 6 shots of vodka). I've only been drunk twice since i was diagnosed in december and both times i've been testing my levels about every 1 1/2 hours with the help of my friends and found that i've been fine whilst out (never over 10 mm/ol and never below 6 mm/ol) but when i get home i have 2 slices of toast, maybe some chocolate, some nuts and half a banana (this is what i had yesterday after drinking) and when i woke up in the morning i was around 5 mm/ol. So, as long as i make sure i eat enough before i go to bed, is it fine to drink like this every now and then? I KNOW i will eat enough from now on after i drink, i literally eat until i can barely eat anymore! And i don't get to the state where i can't stand up or i throw up or anything, just to the point when i know i'm drunk and maybe can't remember much from the night before...

    Drinking is fun, I also dont want to stop, at least not now. I am always extra careful, testing and eating to make sure I dont go low. Sounds like you have a pretty good feel for it so you should be fine as long as you continue to be careful.
    Have fun! Be safe!

    That's it really, get drunk but be safe. The biggest risk in my experience has been drinking, and sleeping through a hypo which will escalate to a fit and so on.
