One thing many understand in life and that is when you drink hard one night you wake up with regrets, nausea, and a torturous headache. It’s a fact of life. However, there are some people who evade this post-drinking ritual.

You’ve heard the phrase “work hard, play hard” but have you heard of the newest term floating around the country that describes those few lucky people? It’s called being booze fit.


That’s right. It’s an actual term people are using to describe themselves.

What does it mean to be "booze fit"?

So what does the term actually mean? And is it just a joke?

Being booze fit is basically being able to function properly whilst drinking hard. These people can go with little sleep after having a fun night shotgunning beers and hard liquor but be entirely untouched by hangovers the next day.

These people believe can drink and get back to their daily duties with seemingly no repercussions. No joke.

A recent survey conducted by Greenhouse Treatment who asked 3,131 respondents has found some shocking revelations of the great US of A considering how many people in each state consider themselves to be booze fit. And you’ll never guess who came in first place.

Not only did the survey find out what state had the most people who considered themselves booze fit, but it also found ou that 9% of those who have the work hard play hard attitude feel like they wouldn’t be able to do it without alcohol.

The United States of America overall got the bronze worldwide in this survey.

The survey also found out that one in ten drinkers think that developing a tolerance to alcohol actually strengthens the body.


It’s almost like a superpower to booze fit people.

If the term is serious or just a joke is a little unclear. But with so many people already knowing what being booze fit means and being able to identify with it, one would say it could be serious but it’s probably a joking term to be used amongst friends or at parties.
