Hahah Welcome to the patch bro. 8 year veteran here (which is actually a long time for around here), she isn't for everyone. Just be careful man. I know from experience when new guys hit that zombie stage (We all have been their), that's were the big accidents happen or even death. Just keep your head on and bail on a few binge nights if you have too. Defiantly don't feel pressured to keep up with these guys (probably the most important thing I tell my new green hands). Whats wild is it was even way worse 5-10 years ago. Not even nearly as tame as it is today.
