Grant is teetotal - he is in fact allergic to alcohol.  However, his director for Withnail & I insisted that he drink a bottle of vodka so that he could experience being paralytically drunk.  The result was that Grant passed out for a full day, but was more scared of losing the part than of the result of the booze.
