• Question: So in English you have sayings for levels of intoxication. Stoned, tipsy, wasted, smashed, drunk, blacked out, passed out, etc. What are those in French? Thanks! - Anonymous

    The last question about that was not answered by me but by awesomefrench maybe the greatest blog for French. You really should ask there too, French is not my mother language.

    However I can help you with some:

    Ivre is the more cult word for drunk. The name is ivresse. Like in English you can be drunk on power, of revenge etc. Soûl/soûle, or saoul/saoule is another appropriated word for drunk. A more technical term woul be être énivré or s’énivre.

    A more slang word is bourré or less common gris or noir. Beurré also exists.In slang to become very drunk is se déchirer la gueule. Prendre une cuite is to have a drinking session. When you’re so drunk you have loss consciousness you are ivre-mort. 

    When you’re tipsy you are éméché or pompette, though I’ve only heard the latter once.

    Here is a compilation of terms related to intoxication in French. 

    Being French, may I add a few things?

    First, ivre is a higher level of language and more formal than soûl(e)/saoul(e). You also have the verb (sesoûler/saouler.

    The verb is s’enivrer, without accent because it’s pronounced /sãnivʁe/. Obviously the past participle/adjective is then enivré, pronounced the same. These, as ivre, are also higher level of language and more formal.

    être déchiré(e) can mean either “to be really drunk” or “to be high” (on drugs).

You had sex when you’re 14? that’s your choice, you go glen coco, that is okay

You don’t want to have sex till you are married? That takes guts and that is okay

You have a fuck buddy in highschool? Not everyone likes commitment and that is okay

You are asexual and don’t like sex? That’s your sexuality, embrace it, that is okay

But you know what isn’t okay? Shaming people for their sex lives, that is not okay.
