Can you die if you hold your breath for too long while being drunk?

If you drank too much alcohol and get drunk and then hold your breath for too long. How you are drunk you won't completely notice you're holding your breath.

    The autonomic nervous system, separate from cognitive process, governs the respirator breathing rate without assistance from the conscious (or in the case of your question unconscious) mind.

    After a short time holding your breath you pass out and start breathing again, drunk or not.

    Once you pass out you start to breathe again, is it kinda automatic.

    No. Your brain will shut you down and cause you to continue to breathe.

    No, but you'll probably pass out and die from choking to death on your own vomit.

    Nope, not booze, but heroin or oxycodone are what makes you "forget to breathe".

    It's not possible for someone to die from holding their breath--drunk or not--because their body's automatic breathing mechanism would kick in and they would start breathing involuntarily.
