What happens to you take a drink? Alcohol, unlike other things you eat or drink, passes quickly into your bloodstream. Once there is one drop of alcohol to every 1500 drops of your blood, you're drunk. Continued drinking after that can soon make you pass out. In other words, it takes only a few drinks to get drunk.
Many people think alcohol peps you up. That's not true. Alcohol really slows you down. The more you drink, the more you slow down. But alcohol often does make you act jovial and happy. That's because alcohol loosens your self-control. Sometimes you do things you would never do when sober. You take chances. That can be dangerous, especially when you're driving.
Alcohol can be bad for your health. That's because it make you delay eating, or forget to eat all together. The more you drink, the less likely you are to eat the food your body really needs. Thus, many people who die from drinking really starve to death!
