* One vodka shot = 30mL of 40% ABV vodka

1] “Tipsy” defined as 0.05 BAC (Blood Alcohol Content). This is the legal limit for driving in many countries. At this level of intoxication most people would experience a sense of well-being, some lowering of inhibitions and impairment of reasoning, but no obvious speech or movement impairment.

2] “Drunk” defined as 0.15 BAC (Blood Alcohol Content). At this level of intoxication most people would experience major impairment of mental and physical functions including blurred vision, impaired speech, severe lack of judgement and difficulty standing or walking.

Maybe what he meant was “I can’t *allow* myself to get drunk”?

A living weapon not in full control of his faculties could be a very very bad thing. To say nothing of making him more vulnerable to whatever group wanted to take him down.
