Kiefer Sutherland is making students sick after learning of a college drinking game related to his hit show 24.

Students must take a shot of a chosen tipple every time Sutherland's character Jack Bauer says, 'Damn it!' and when the actor heard about the game, he decided to play along.

He reveals he started saying the soft curse phrase as many times as he could--including three times in succession.

Sutherland explains, "Boom, boom, boom, and that was just one scene. By the end (of the episode) there had to be 14 'Damn its.'

"I could just see all these college kids going, 'Oh f**k!'"

Sutherland Concerned About His Drinking Habit

Actor Kiefer Sutherland wishes he could control his drinking binges because he's tired of waking up with no recollection of what happened the night before.

The 24 star accepts he has a reputation as a heavy boozer, but insists he only turns to alcohol to unwind.

He says, "It's selfish and self-absorbed and it's a dangerous thing, thinking that if you work really hard, you should be able to reward yourself by going out and getting s**t-faced.

"I should be able to wake up in the morning without going, 'Oh, no! Where's my boot?' or 'Where am I?'

"It's not a very clever way to live, and I don't want to live like that, but it's the kind of trade you have to make."
