At what duration does a night of drinking turn into a 'bender'?
That means that my previous 36 hour bender was not a bender. I dislike this definition.

When you start to look like this guy.

To me a bender is a weekday social function that ends in fuzzy, possibly not-remembered territory. It's one where you can go to work the next day, but you will definitely feel foggy.

I definitely think of it as a multi-day drunk, as well. Possibly because I've almost always heard it used in the phrase "X-day bender." I have some sort of weird intuitive feeling that it should always be a three-, five-, or seven-day bender.

When I had the first taste of the first drink. Then, for me, there was no going back.

Even-tempered people just don't do that, I guess. For some odd reason.

But some in their prime do.

To me, what BoPo describes is more of a hangover than a bender.

If you wake up feeling like a squirrel died in your mouth after dropping an anvil on your head and the first thing you do is reach for a beer, that's a bender.

And when you are at a bar near closing time and shots of Jagermeister seem like the best idea ever, you are venturing into potential bender territory.

From amro's link:

Howard Hughes used to watch his favorite movie “Ice Station Zebra” over and over again, for years on end. Wouldn't you like to be that deranged?

I certainly would. You understand me so well, Modern Drunkard magazine!
