How Alcohol Travels Through the Body

HOW ALCOHOL TRAVELS THROUGH TH BODY

ALCOHOL REQUIRES NO DIGESTION AND IS METABOLIZED BEFORE MANY OTHER NUTRIENTS

ABOUT 20% of the alcohol you drink passes through the stomach wall and can reach the brain within one minute.

THE REMAINING 80% passes through the small intestine before entering the bloodstream.

BEFORE YOU DRINK ON AN EMPTY STOMACH,CONSIDER HOW ALCOHOL TRAVELS THROUGH YOUR BODY.

1 STOMACH
Drinking too much alcohol can decrease appetite as a result of increasing gastric juice flow,causing malnutrition.

Drinking too much alcohol stimulates gastric juice flow.

Higher alcohol content can cause stomach lining irritation and lead to ulcers.

On an empty stomach,alcohol passes directly to the blood stream.

2 MOUTH
Heavy drinkers increase their risk of developing mouth,esophagus,or throat cancer.

3 CIRCULATORY SYSTEM
ONCE IN THE BLOODSTREAM,ALCOHOL IS QUICKLY DISTRIBUTED THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE BODY.

ALCOHOL CAUSES BLOOD VESSELS TO WIDEN,RESULTING IN:

temporary feelings of warmth.
temporary decrease in pulse rate.
temporary decrease in blood pressure.

4 KIDNEYS

ALCOHOL ACTS A DIURETIC IN THE BODY AND INCREASES URINATION.

Alcohol can increase urine production as soon as 20 minutes after consumption.

Excessive urination may lead to thirst and dehydration.

5 LUNGS

Alcohol increases the risk of aspiration-the entrance of foreign material into the lungs.

6 BRAIN

Once alcohol hits the brain,it immediately starts affecting the brain ability to control behavior and bodily functions.

7 LIVER

THE LIVER CAN ONLY OXIDIZE ONE DRINK PER HOUR.

REGULAR ALCOHOL CONSUMPTION CAN LEAD TO LIVER DAMAGE.

CIRRHOSIS OF THE LIVER OCCURS AS A RESULT OF EXCESSIVE ALCOHOL CONSUMPTION ON A REGULAR BASIS.

This is why time is the only thing that can sober up a person.

A fatty liver may develop as alcohol disrupts the livers ability to break down fats.The damage can be reversed by ceasing alcohol consumption.

Healthy liver tissue is replaced by scar tissue,which decreased blood flow to the liver and liver function.

AS BLOOD ALCOHOL CONCENTRATION (BAC) CONTINUES TO RISE,LOSS OF CONTROL INCREASES.

BAC,03
Few obvious effects at this point,Slight intersification of mood.

BAC 06
Emotions are exaggerated;judgement is impaired.

BAC .10
Self control, perception,vision,balance,and speech are affected.

BAC 14-15
Vision,balance,speech,and motor control are affected.Medical evaluation is advised.

BAC .20
Loss of motor control.Requires assistance standing/walking,Medical attention is necessary.

BAC .30
Potential loss of consciousness.Hospitalization is required.

ALCOHOL MAY ALSO CAUSE
Sleep disturbance.
Depression.
Decreased attention span.
Anxiety.
