  • Several different factors can influence how alcohol can affect a person, such as age, gender, physical condition, and various other medicines that they may be taking.
  • Alcohol use depresses the nerves that control involuntary actions such as breathing and the gag reflex (which prevents choking); a fatal dose of alcohol may eventually stop these functions.
  • An alcohol blackout is an amnesia-like period that is often associated with drinking. When an individual is experiencing a blackout, they may appear to be functioning normally, but later, the person is very likely to have absolutely no memory of occurrences.
  • Alcohol is rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream from the small intestine, and less rapidly from the stomach and colon.
