Pure alcohol is generally absorbed faster than diluted alcohols, which are, in turn, absorbed faster than wine or beer. Drug testing for alcohol level relies on this fact. Water and fruit juices slow the absorption process, while carbon dioxide speeds it up. The major nutritional problem with alcohol is poor diet.

For example, the general social indifference of many Asians to alcohol may reflect the presence of an atypical isoenzyme of alcohol dehydrogenase rather than some independently derived cultural norm. Three distinct families of endogenous opioids exist: endorphins, enkephalins, and dynorphins. We depend on our brain's ability to release dopamine in order to experience pleasure and to motivate our responses to the natural rewards of everyday life, such as social interaction, the sight or smell of food and the immediate reinforcing properties of all drugs of misuse, including alcohol. A person will drink to regain that feeling of euphoria experienced in phase 1; the drinking will increase as more intoxication is required to achieve the same effect.

Results also show that identical MALE twins are more likely to be both drink dependent than female identical twins. The genetic component of alcoholism does not condemn the child of an addicted parent. Equal dosages of alcohol consumed by men and women generally result in women having higher blood alcohol concentrations BACssince women generally have a higher percentage of body fat and therefore a lower volume of distribution for alcohol than men, and because the stomachs of men tend to metabolize alcohol more quickly. NIH is launching a new nationwide study to learn more about how teen brains are altered by alcohol, tobacco, marijuana, and other drugs.
