When I was a kid, I saw an episode of Jackass where Steve-O had an IV of vodka. Couldn't i just save money on my drinking if I got needles and used them to shoot up my liquor?

Mr. Mike M.- I want to suggest that you steer clear of using liquor intravenously. Not only is it dangerous but I imagine that it is incredibly painful as well. Pubmed.gov published research stating that injecting alcohol can cause serious irritation and vein damage.

The biggest benefit to getting drunk by shooting up is feeling drunk about 20-30 minutes before you normally would. You're trading a 30 minute wait for a game of russian roullette because injecting alcohol is fatal for some people. I can't really speak to whether it'll discount your alcohol bill but I will tell you that no matter how big that discount is, it's not worth it. Plus, yikes. That can't feel good.

hahaha! I remember that episode! He's crazy! Is he even still alive? But to answer your question seriously, don't do it. In fact, you probably shouldn't do anything Steve-O did, does, or will do! Shooting up alcohol isn't a popular way to get drunk for a reason. It can literally kill you. Even if you've done it before with no problem, it's extremely risky each time. If alcohol is getting too expensive, then it might be a good idea to look at other areas of your life. Have you had to defend your drinking in arguments with your significant other, parents or some other important relationship? Have you had to use money set aside for the electric bill to make sure you had enough for drinking? Have you had to call in sick to work because of drinking or a hangover? These are all signs that your drinking may be out of your control. If so, you may have an addiction and it's a good idea to consider going to rehab.
