I know, I can't think of any cases off the top of my head of women drowning under such circumstances. I know the couple of times I have been seriously inebriated I either felt extremely sick, or actually couldn't walk properly. Luckily I was with friends both times, especially luckily when they helped me get up 3 flights of stairs to get home. But at no time did it really affect the way I was thinking or perceived things or dangers. I think my body, unaccustomed to alcohol, just wouldn't physically let me consume the amounts that would get me to that state. And although some young women today seem to drink vastly more than my generation, it's a fact that most females generally probably couldn't tolerate the amounts men drink. And I think we all react to various substances differently. I also think it's a confidence thing, most women/girls will gravitate towards their friends whereas men think, no, I'll try and get somewhere. My ex (English), when stationed in the army in Germany, near Hanover, used to regularly go out drinking heavily with army friends, get split up somehow with them and end up walking miles and miles home on his own in an area he had no knowledge of, very drunk (would ring me to tell me how he was getting on). When Corrie McKeague went missing , it reminded me very much of what could have happened to him. There is a condition called (post) - micturition syncope, fainting after urination due to a sudden loss of blood pressure, although usually seen in older men, obviously more of a problem because if male you will likely be standing, not sitting/squatting. But a lot of alcohol and possibly emitting a large volume of urine (which is likely in these situations) is not going to help. I just wish in general people would be more wary of alcohol, it can make you so vulnerable to all sorts of bad occurrences. It's a really severe problem amongst young people in Britain now.
