Local Man Really Likes Smoking His Liquor

Broderic Allen, aka Ballen, aka B.A., is an aspiring Dallas rapper and member of local hip-hop collective The Chaos Theory. But it's not his music that's landed him on TV, and on AOL News, and in the U.K.'s Daily Mail. All that stems from his drinking habits or, more accurately, his getting-drunk habits: Allen smokes his liquor.

It's simple, really, as Allen demonstrated for San Diego's Fox affiliate. He simply puts dry ice and liquor in a cup, then inhales the vapor. From the lungs the alcohol goes straight to the bloodstream, thus bypassing the stomach and avoiding the calories that typically come from getting drunk.

The calories were a problem for Allen. He topped out at 285 pounds on a diet rich in Steel Reserve, Four Loko and Taco Bell. "I was looking at myself in the mirror, turned my head to the side and leaned forward and my breasts sat on my stomach," Broderic explained to CW 33 in March.

Smoking booze was like a magic bullet, temperance having failed to appeal to Allen. (See also: booty)

There's really only one small drawback to Allen's plan: Inhaling booze is really, really bad for you. It damages the lungs, and with no digestive system mediating the transfer of alcohol to the bloodstream, it's much easier to get alcohol poisoning. Also, as an expert cited by the Daily Mail notes, when people decide to smoke alcohol, it "draws into question their judgment and impulse control."

None of which phases Allen in the least. "I figure, you know, I can have my cake and eat it, too."

The calorie thing sounds like BS.  What difference does it make how the alcohol gets into your bloodstream.  Four Loko made him fat cause it's chok full of sugar.  Switching to drinking straight vodka/grain alcohol would do the exact same thing.

He should just stick it up his ass, another tried and true way to get drunk without drinking.

Just curious. How can one 'vaporize' a liquid such as alcohol at the temp of -109.3°F? I'm thinking any 'buzz' he is getting is due to the onset of hypercapnia.

Way back when I had a friend that would put vodka into one of those atomizers and inhale the vapors to get drunk. Seemed to be a quite effective, if not overly refined, way to put a buzz on.

I have to admire his dedication to a laudable goal: that of being able to drink without getting fat. However, his solution seems to be less than ideal. Still, we can all learn from Mr. Allen's hustle.

Broderic Allen: Picky about his alcohol consumption, no so much when it comes to asses.

What the fuck is Four Loko?

I'm not an expert, but I really don't think you can vaporize alcohol by lowering the temperature.  Alcohol does vaporize (boil) at 173 degrees F.  That wouldn't be pleasant to inhale. 

I think the only thing this guy is inhaling carbon dioxide, and any "buzz" he's getting is by asphyxiation.

The pounds are really going to melt off when his lungs collapse.

@doublecheese The question remains: Who is more gullible... Broderic Allen or Eric Nicholson the hack that "reported" this

@doublecheese That's exactly what I was thinking. I also think it's a bad idea to have dry ice sitting out in any enclosed space.
