Patient : This may seem like a pointless question. But I am quite concerned about why my tolerance to alcohol has dropped so suddenly within the space of a couple of weeks. 4 pints of lager would usually get me fairly tipsy, but recently after 1 pint I am pretty tipsy, and by 3-4 I am completely drunk and incapable of drinking more, and have very little memory the day after. I certainly feel out of control. Not bothered that I'm a lightweight; It was the sudden change that worried me. I often suffer from anxiety, and used to smoke cannabis.
