Getting wasted the conventional way isn’t enough for some college kids, as “smoking” alcohol is the latest trend to hit college campuses.

How exactly does one smoke alcohol? There are two main methods: pumping pressurized air into a plastic bottle full of liquor with a bicycle pump, or pouring liquor over dry ice and inhaling.

Plenty of YouTube videos are available showing college students using both of these methods, which gets them wasted nearly instantaneously, as they are essentially taking a bong rip of alcohol vapors.

If you’re intrigued by this idea, beware, as paramedics warn this method can be extremely dangerous.

The alcohol doesn’t have a chance to be filtered by the liver, but instead goes directly into the blood stream, primarily to the lungs and the brain.

“It goes right into your blood system immediately, there’s a far greater risk of getting alcohol poisoning versus the stomach,” said JP Trottier of the Ottawa Paramedic Service.

“It will sit [in the stomach] for a little bit, your body has a chance to detect it and make you vomit.”

Still, some bros are excited about the new way to get wasted.

“I’d want to try it because it’s a new way to get drunk, it might have different effects on you,” said Shane Patrick.

“You could introduce it to some parties, and maybe new drinking games … you could have some sweet new drinking games with alcohol vapor.”

Our advice? Conventional drinking is the way. It’s been done all throughout time. Most alcohol-related deaths come from idiotic college bro innovations like this.
