    Finding a word/term 
    #1
    Gun
    I'm not sure whether someone has coined a term for this, but I'm assuming there must be one (by now)
    Is there an adjective for somebody who is clearly high/affected by drugs but genuinely thinks/insists they're sober, or much less affected than they are?
    Surely there's a term for this and it's been bugging me that I'm unaware

    Put it in NPD if you don't want it in BDD

    It would belong here because you have asked for an adjective for an inebriated person.

    Can you show me some other threads in words asking for specific terms?

    Yes, that's the exact quality I am referring to. Surely there's been a term coined for this?

    No but you could have had the thread closed and it wasn't

    My hopes are blighted, my heart is broken, my life a burden, everything around me is sad and mournful; earth has become distasteful to me, and human voices distract me. It is mercy to let me die, for if I live I shall lose my reason and become mad.

    generally psychotic people aren't aware they are in psychosis, but that doesn't describe what you're going for

    losing awareness of your intoxication could probably be summed up as being "inebriated, much to my chagrin" or "unaware intoxication".

    I don't think a single word can really do it.

    I think 'strung-out' is a slang term for this.

    When I'm strung out I'm either too high for my own good and know it or I'm coming down and in WD, bad.

    At least that's how I've personally used the term.

    I can't think of a single reason why (not.)

    As CH said, I don't view strung out to mean anything near this, though they often tend not to realise how far they've gone ine

    there's

    punch-drunk
    /ˈpənCHˌdrəNGk/
    adjective
    stupefied by or as if by a series of heavy blows to the head.


    Doesn't necessarily imply unaware intoxication, but it could?

    Yeah, it may be a regional thing. From Urban Dictionary:
    strung out

    When after continuous drug use, a user feels like they're not high despite being heavily impaired, resulting in continued heavy drug dosing. Easily observed by the impairment, physical deterioration and continued dosing of the user.
    Most definitions I've read though, it just means wasted.
