About the word "Thueng gap/ถึงกับ"

Hello everyone guys!

Could please someone explain to me the following word's usage ?
I will post how i'm using it when i talk with my thai friends! :)

I think it mean like "thefore or maybe that some action was very strong that causes me to arrive to the second action" like for example

"Yesterday night i was so drunk that i couldh't walk" (Or in this case we could use alternative the word jon/จน instead right guys?)
Meua khuen rao mao mak thueng gap dern mai wai"

"You must wanted to eat to this restaurant so much to get to the point to drive so far
"Khun yaak maa gin khao raan nee mak mak chai mai ? thueng gap kap rot maa glai kanat nee"

lemme know if iam right ! :) otherwise please post the exactly meaning of this word along with some examples ! ,
because whenever i run across this word i always get confused!

Thanks in advance! :) Sorry for my karaoke i dont have thai keyboard! =(

    ถึงกับ/จน (conjunction) = so as, so that, as the result etc.

    - ผมง่วงนอนมาก ถึงกับ(จน) ต้องแอบหลับในที่ทำงาน
