    beer buzz

    "Did he take any pills?''

    "He is not a drugy kind of a guy, he likes his beer buzz but.."

    "Beer buzz" he likes to be under influence?

    What is "lokes" for god's sake?! Is it "likes"?

    I guess that he likes to cure himself with beer and not pills.

    So he's a beer drinker?

    Re: beer buzz

    Yes. Being "buzzed" on alcohol is a light level of intoxication.

    I don't like to label him as a beer drinker.
    1) What is "lokes" there?
    2) What do you think "beer buzz" is? I think "buzz" refers to that odd feeling in the head after drinking alcohol.

    Two interpretations:

    1- He is sick because of alcohol but he does not cure himself because he likes it.

    2- He is sick but he doesn't like to take pills, instead he drinks alcohol.

    I've already corrected it. It's "likes".

    Re: beer buzz

    I guess my first inference is more likely to be correct.

    It's nothing to do with being sick. It is referring to taking pills recreationally. Some people take prescription medicines illegally for the effect. Opium-based painkillers are a particular problem.

    This person does not take any pills, he is happy with beer for recreational purposes.

    Re: beer buzz

    So a drugy kind of person is not someone who takes pill whenever he/she has a dull pain in the head, but is a person who likes taking pills for pleasure. Am I right?

    Re: beer buzz

    Drugs come in all sorts of forms. Smoked, snorted, injected or ingested.

    Some drug abusers choose pills. Taking an aspirin or Tylenol when you have a headache doesn't make you a druggie.

    Taking prescription painkillers in order to feel good does.
