Is there a word that starts with "F" that is related to intoxication?

I have racked my brain all over the state of mindlessness for this, but have yet to come up with a good answer.

    Are you trying to recall a word you once heard, in which case context might be helpful (such as "It was in the northern UK in the 90's", for instance), or are you trying for a piece of trivia, such as "I know have a word for drunkenness in every letter of the alphabet!" May 15, 2014 at 7:04

Fou: drunk.

Fuzzled: To make drunk; to intoxicate; to fuddle.

Fuddle: To drink to excess. [Colloq.] [1913 Webster]

Fordrunken: Utterly drunk; very drunk.

Fap: "drunk," late 16c.

Full: May also refer to being drunk. As in D.H. Lawrence's novel Sons and Lovers

Fuzzed: Fuzz \Fuzz\ (f[u^]z), v. t. To make drunk. [Obs.] --Wood. [1913 Webster]

    I'd be cautious about using Fap; it has a more recent meaning that still involves moving your hand up and down as you would while drinking from a pint glass (or a shot glass depending on your endowment) but repeating the action more quickly.

    Fiddling with your dee-dee may well be another euphemism for it !

  • Interesting. I'd never seen full in that sense in English. Its cognates are the common, generic words for being drunk in all the Scandinavian languages (where there are different words for being full from eating). May 15, 2014 at 7:47



Falling Down Drunk and Fupped Uck are two good ones. Here's more than you can shake a stick at: http://freaky_freya.tripod.com/Drunktionary/E-H.html



Flushed: a state of intoxication when one begins to feel warm, pleasant, and craves more to drink. When someone has drunk enough alcohol to feel beyond buzzed, but not tipsy.

Fried: drunk; inebriated.

Flying: intoxicated by alcohol.

Floozed: intoxicated by alcohol or drugs.


OED mentions fucked as an option:

Intoxicated by alcohol or drugs. Cf. fucked-up adj. 3.
