  • Alcohol use slows reaction time and impairs judgment and coordination, skills which are needed to drive a car safely. The more alcohol consumed, the greater the impairment.
  • Although eating will not help you to sober up while you're drunk, eating while you drink or before you go to sleep after drinking can lessen the intensity of the next day's hangover. That's because when you eat, your stomach holds the food for digestion, closing its contents off from the small intestine. Alcohol is absorbed into the body most quickly from the small intestine, so if the alcohol cannot reach the small intestine, it cannot be absorbed that way. (Though it will still be absorbed through the stomach, it will take longer, thereby allowing the liver to break down the alcohol that´┐Ż's already in the bloodstream.) Giving the alcohol time to be metabolized is what will lessen your hungover feeling.
  • According to a study by the Task Force of the National Advisory Council on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, boys that drink have been reported to try alcohol before the age of 12, as compared to girls, who are generally aged 15 or older.
  • Alcoholics and Non-alcoholics differ because they do not process alcohol in the same way.
