We’ve all been there: A few too many drinks, then the insatiable desire to contact everyone you know.
The result? Drunk texts. At a certain point, texting is hard—especially when your inebriated fingers can’t quite pick out the letter—or contact—you need. Whether it’s an accidental text to a parent or ex or a completely incoherent string of letters and numbers, sometimes you hit “send” and can never, ever take it back.
No doubt you’ve sent at least one of these categories of drunk texts. Right? We won’t tell. Promise.
This is perhaps the least offensive drunk text you can send. Of course, the recipient likely knows you’re “under the weather,” but at least you didn’t say anything incriminating.
No matter how many times you sing Taylor Swift’s “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” in remembrance of your latest ex, your drunk self has another plan. Plan ahead and just delete your former lover’s number from your phone. You’ll thank yourself later.

Accidentally text your dad when you meant to text your buddy Dan? Or did you mistakenly tell your mom that you’re “sooooooo wasfkted?”
While it’s a bit disturbing how often this actually happens to people, it’s like a right of passage into adulthood. So, seriously: Double check who you’re texting before you hit send. It could save you a very stern talking-to. Even if you think you’re sober enough to answer a parent’s reply, the odds are you probably aren’t.
(On the other hand, it’s a truly special moment when you get a drunk text from a parent. Milk it.)
Yes, texting your ex is embarrassing. But what about drunk texting the guy or gal you’re in love with and would likely never talk to while sober? This could turn out to be great for you or completely ruin your chances. The drunk message says what the sober mind thinks. Or so the saying goes.
After most nights of heavy drinking, it’s important to fill in the blanks the following morning. No matter if you did something funny or just plain stupid, you can always count on friends to clear the haze—in painful detail.
