Alcohol has varying effects on every individual. Like they say, different strokes for different folks. Its effect on the human body depends on a variety of factors, most significant of which are body weight and the rate at which it has been consumed. Other factors that make a difference include age, gender, physical fitness as well as hereditary tendencies.
Regardless, listed below are some common effects of alcohol that you should be aware of in order to make wise judgement during your parties.Short - Term Effects
Long-term effects are not defined and as mentioned earlier, vary from person to person. Given these effects then, is there any 'safe limit' to drinking alcohol? The answer to that depends on your definition of safe. A desired level of intake varies from: when you intend to drink while enjoying a hearty conversation with your friends at the same time to, when you intend to reach home from the party venue without being held up by the cops en route.
P.S. : Blood Alcohol Concentration or BAC of 0.03% is the legally permissible driving limit in India and that of 0.08%, anywhere outside India.
Note: A BAC of 0.1% means that an individual's blood supply contains one part alcohol for every 1000 parts blood.
