If You Need a Drink Don't Take It!

alcohol depends on the individual and the drink (various distilled spirits show differences); thus the lasting power of the kick varies.
Because a big man's body contains more blood than a small man's, it requires more liquor to put a significant concentration of alcohol in his veins. When the professors fed four ounces of whisky each to two men two hours after dinner, the 130-pounder showed a .o4 percent alcoholic concentration in his blood while his 213-pound companion was only one half that far along.
Nevertheless, experiments have convinced the experts that, while everyone is sober with less than .05 percent of alcohol in his blood (two and a third ounces of whisky on the empty stomach of an average 15o-pound man) and some may be tipsy at 1, everybody suffers some impairment at .15. The drinker becomes deeply intoxicated at .2 and .3, passes out at .4, when the alcohol completely depresses that part of his brain governing consciousness, and dies at .5 to .9 when it paralyzes the centers which control breathing. To achieve such a death means gulping quickly the equivalent of a quart or more of the strongest whisky at one brief sitting. Happily, unconsciousness would probably halt the attempt before it was successful.
It has been found that all functions take place at lower efficiency even after the smallest dose of alcohol. For instance, if you feel less tired after drinking, you simply are benumbed. Actually your muscular output drops. On two ounces of whisky, the average Yale subject's errors in reasoning jumped Zo percent; on a half-pint, 67 percent. No matter how you may insist liquor stimulates you, it does not.
Alcohol is related chemically to ether. It acts first by deadening the nerves of the brain to relieve physical and mental tension. If some people seem clearer-headed after a drink, this is only because they are so tense and self-conscious that, without a sedative, they are inhibited. A lawyer I know does better before the jury if he takes a drink. He could do still better were it possible to get rid of his inhibitions by other means.
