Did you listen to the stereo.... or leave the door open? Usually trying to start it with a weak battery will cause a flood

Charge up the battery and do a deflood and you should get it to start. Or get someone to pull start it if you have a manual transmission

Then you should think about your ignition health. How old are your plugs coils and wires?
