13 Types Of Drunken Friends We All Have

by Chaitra Krishnan

Our friends are the family that we choose and thank God we have an option like that! We grow up with some of them, go to high school and college with them, fight, laugh, cry, and make memories with them. And if you think about these memories, many of the great ones didn’t happen when you were sober. That’s the best part about getting drunk with your friends, right? Be it a party animal night or a Friday evening at a friend’s apartment, alcohol stories are fun and dramatic. Well, not all of them are fun and we certainly have friends who we wish don’t get drunk ever.

Here’s a list of different types of drunken friends that we all have (we’re sure you too can relate yourself to one or more of these).

1. The Philosopher


While drinking alcohol can definitely lighten up the mood for many of us, there are a few rare personalities whose thoughts become extra dense after getting drunk. They start talking about world hunger and the multi-faceted meaning of life. While most of us won’t understand half of the things, we still keep nodding to them (only because we’re drunk too).

2. The Michael Jackson


These friends start to dance the moment they get tipsy and they’re truly the best entertainers out there. At first, it can be quite shocking, but after a few episodes of drinking with them, you’ll get used to it; you might even start dancing along with them! And yes, you can call them Michael Jackson, but in reality, you know that they look like a snake in front of a charmer.

3. The Sleeping Beauty


Ah, the one friend who gets high even on breezers. This friend will just go to sleep after a few drinks; no drama no crying for mama. But we really wish they’d spend more time with us, don’t we?

4. The Crybaby


This is your Devdas friend who digs out their pain after a few shots of vodka. The topic might range from ex-partners to bankruptcy and they kill your mood faster than a Dhinchak Pooja song. Try to calm your friend down (which might seem impossible) or put them down to sleep so that the event doesn’t turn into a sob fest.

5. The One Who Says “Aaj Kuch Toofani Kartein Hain”


The overly excited drunk who always want to do something “different”, “fun”, and “adventurous” in their own words. This is the guy/ girl who wouldn’t mind trespassing the neighbor’s compound and steal their chappals at 2 AM. If you’re inviting this friend over for drinks, make sure you keep them inside the house so that you don’t land in trouble. And it’s very easy to identify these friends because evidently, they’ve gotten themselves as well as others in trouble before.

6. The “Funny” One


For some, alcohol can activate their funny bones. These friends become the life of the party if it’s a party without very loud music. And you’ll have a great time recollecting some funny old stories and watching your friend do some memorable impressions. Keep these friends close because they can help you loosen up your mind after a tough week.

7. The Aggressive Drunk


These people shouldn’t really drink because they get all aggressive when they do. They become over emotional and tend to pick up fights and create complicated scenarios that would make everyone else uncomfortable. We really don’t know if they do it on purpose or if they just want a reason to vent it out on others.

8. The Drunk Dialer


Call it a prank or an indirect way to talk to your ex, some people reach for their phones as soon as they finish their first drink. They text, call, or send emotional quotes about relationships to their exes or partners. Some of them even ring up random old friends just to ask how they’re doing (at 4 in the morning)! Are you a drunk dialer?

9. The Puker


The puker— needs no further explanations; you know who they are. And also, stock some Dettol and cleansing liquid before you invite them home on a Friday night.

10. The Flirty Drunk


This is the friend who suddenly turns into Johnny Bravo after a couple of beers. They start getting all flirty and sometimes make you uncomfortable as well.

11. The Clingy “Best Friend”


“I’d do anything for you my friend, and you know that, don’t you?” It sounds aww but imagine that coming from someone who’s hanging down your shoulders (LOL!). These friends get clingy and are so much in love with you after a few mugs of Budweiser.

12. The Arjit Singh

We’ve all got that one friend who starts singing once they’re drunk. The choice of the song depends on their mood; it could range from happy party songs to sad, unrequited love songs that’ll make you reach for the tissues to stuff them into his/ her mouth.

13. The Trouble Magnet


This is your friend, or friend of friend who’s always getting your whole gang into trouble. Sure there are a million ways for people to get in trouble and this person seems to have mastered almost all of them.

While some of them are adorable and the rest are annoying, drunk friends are the best, aren’t they? And the best part of all of it is that you feel the happiest when you spend time with your close friends. Drinking with them is better than drinking with a date any day, right? Ever thought what kind of a drunken friend you are? If not, share this article with your friends and let them decide!
