The Effects Of Alcohol On The Body

Alcohol acts primarily on the nerve cells within the brainby interfering with communication between nerve cells and all other cells, suppressing the activities of excitatory nerve pathways and increasing the activities of inhibitory nerve pathways.

Alcohol enhances the effects of inhibitory neurotransmitters like GABA, and weakens the effects of excitatory neurotransmitters like Glutamine. Enhancing an inhibitor, or weakening an excitor, will have the external effect of making the person sluggish, which matches the behavior you see in a drunk person, and slowing down the overall functioning and reflex responses of the body.

The body responds to alcohol in stages, which correspond to an increase in BAC:

BAC (%)StageClinical Symptoms
0.01 - 0.05SubclinicalBehavior basically normal by ordinary observation.
