Our expert says:
Lu, sounds like you're thinking of a Blackout ? During such a period, when one has drunk FAR TOO MUCH and must, if one has any sense at all, conclude that one must NEVER drink that much ever again ) , one's brain is to some extent operating on autopilot. Alcohol is a depressant drug, rather like an anaesthetic, though a bit slower-acting. The first parts of your brain it puts to sleep are those dealing with intelligence and common sense, and memory is impaired a bit later on. If you don't record things in memory, they're not there to remember, later. Eventually, with enough alcohol, one becomes unconscious, and even more parts of the brain stop working properly, and eventually one can die simply from an alcohol overdose.
