[Choose #3] I don’t see a problem doing an easy shallow water dive after a few drinks. But to dive drunkmis a whole nother story.

[Choose #4] I did puke on open water dive 4 on the surface and under.While completing my DMT we would get carried away at night. It was Roatan so hard not to. Would never dive after drinking unless I had a couple hours sleep.

[Choose #3] Doesn’t matter the effects of what happens with the nitrogen. Drinking and diving effect your judgement. You are an idiot to put yourself and others at risk. If you can’t wait till after the dives you have a problem.

cpharris21 - 3/14/2014 1:45 PM
[Choose #1] No proof on effects of drinking. in theory it might affect nitrogen absortion & degassing & slowed reaction. To think a few drinks & diving will kill you is just stupid. Research it. http://divingresearch.qofe.com/page2/page5/page5.html

NMGoose - 2/21/2014 10:45 AM
[Choose #3] That would be committing suicide. After a good day of diving yes/maybe but certainly not before.

[Choose #2] Yes when I was still a teen I did. I have a pic somewhere of me geared up ready to dive with a guy pouring beer down my snorkel.

brokenogre - 2/21/2014 6:55 AM
[Choose #3] Diving and alcohol don’t mix well; no good results all around with those two. I value my life, and not drinking and diving is a part of good risk management.

[Choose #3] No I am not suicidal! No heavy drinking the night before either do not want to be sick on the dive the next day or make a fatal mistake because of a hangover Partying is always after the diving

[Choose #3] Everything I know points to diving while under the influence not ending well. It’s just not worth the risk.

[Choose #2] Back before depth gages I got narced on a wall in Bonaire, I could see the surface so I assumed I was shallower than I was (170’) and couldn’t figure out why my camera knobs wouldn’t move until the DM signaled me to come up.
Anonymous - 2/20/2014 9:30 AM
[Choose #3] I saw someone cut another divers airhose because he was drunk to prevent the drunk from diving

dalehall - 2/20/2014 8:24 AM
[Choose #3] No. But I have made some short, shallow dives while slightly hung over before. But, if we are doing any deep or longer dives, we don’t ever drink until the diving is done for the weekend.
#1349
RockRat2008 - 2/20/2014 7:52 AM
[Choose #3] Nope; Can’t say I might not ever dive after 1 beer maybe but almost all my dive trips start early morning and drinking is a night time activity. :-)
