Drinking after giving blood

I just gave blood and they told me not to drink for 8 hours. This is unacceptable.

I see this as a unique window of opportunity to get drunk off of 2 beers intead of 6 or 7. It's not every day that you can reclaim that "I just drank a 40 and am hammered" high school tolerance.

Anyone else drank after giving blood? I was just going to drink one or two, but any stories of those who drank more are welcome.

A funner experiment would have been to drink a lot before you gave blood.

I have, but like 3 or 4 hours after I gave blood. I did feel unusually drunk after 6 beers, more so than usual

You know...that's a good idea. You go give blood, get money from that, then use that money to go to the bar and get hammered. In the end, you get hammered for free because of your now low-alcohol tolerance level.

Thanks man

You don't get money for giving blood in Canada. (you live in Canada)

Are you implying that a 40 does not get you drunk?

You're misunderstanding what a 40 is then

40 = 40oz of beer

Ah.

Around here one of those is known as a "trailer park baby bottle".

In all seriousness, how much of a hick do you have to be to drink beer out of a 40 oz. bottle?

Usually people buy them because they are inexpensive. It's basically drinking 3 and a half cans of beer all thrown into one bottle.

The hardest part is drinking it all before it gets warm, nothing is worse than warm cheap beer.

Story time!

First (and only, so far) time I gave blood was at a drive for my High School. I was just above the weight limit of 120 at around 125-130. Anyway, I give my blood, I'm fine afterwords, go eat a little bit, but not much. Go back to class, go to my next class, and about half an hour into that, I get all cold and sweaty, my hearing starts to get all wonky, and my vision was getting dark. So I ask my teacher if I can go to the bathroom, she says yes, and the last thing I remember doing was standing up out of my chair. I came too in the hallway, laying in one of these:

I had made it out in to the hallway, passed out, hit the wall on the way down, and landed in it. One of the guys in the class had to literally pick me up and put me in a chair. They had the paramedics come up and check me out, and I went to the principal's office, and waited for my father come to pick me up. I called my mom too, and she said that I was talking weird, even though I was making perfect sense to myself.

Funnily enough, that was a Friday, and that Sunday was the Super Bowl. I went to a party for it, and got really sick, and missed school the next day, so the people in my English class thought I had died or something

definitely... it becomes piss water...

I would definitely get drunk if I drink the whole bottle of vodka all alone... half of it, I'd be laughing more than I usually do but I won't be lying on the floor.


EDIT: actually on topic = why don't they recommend drinking after giving blood?

Probably because your blood is already thinner, so putting putting alcohol into it and then sending that into your brain probably messes you up.

Sounds fine to me though?

It can't be that much thinner though... I guess it depends on how much blood you're giving. Makes sense though... I guess then it is safe to assume that it takes 8 hours to produce the same amount of blood that you had before

Update: had two beers, felt like I drank 5. Nothing crazy, but it was fun being a lightweight again.

Probably more like 4, and then 4 more to cover lawsuits.

In Canada, it's around 10% of your total blood.

I don't think it's just about replacing the blood. When you give blood you're also losing a lot of water and becoming dehydrated, and alcohol only makes that worse by increasing your rate of water loss.

Seriously, don't mess around with your health. If you want to go get drunk, go ahead and do it, but don't give blood that day.

I've given blood probably 10 times in 7 years or so (apparently, O+ blood is a good thing), and I'm pretty sure that after every single time, I drank within 2 hours. It didn't make much of a difference, as long as you actually eat and drink something to help regain the energy and hydration that you lose from having a pint pumped out of your system (saltines / pistachios / any other mildly salty food will help you absorb water and get you back to normal). If not, you'll probably feel pretty crappy the next day.
