What would you like to do?
Drinking alcohol on an empty stomach can cause you to get drunk faster.?
Only if you drink them faster or make them stronger than standard. Generally 1 1/2 ounces of liquor is equivalent to 12 ounces of beer. So based on the volume your stomach ca…n hold at a time, it is possible to get drunk faster on strong mixed drinks, but not necessarily.
The drinking implement is not important. The speed at which you drink is. If you drink more in a shorter space of time then yes, naturally. Pretty self explanatory really.
There are two different answers to your question. 1. Alcoholics who appear sober are not usually sober. A person with an alcohol addiction has to keep a certain amount o…f the drug in his or her system in order to be able to function at all. Because of their higher tolerance to alcohol, they may in fact be carrying quite a snootful. Under those conditions, a couple more drinks may push them well into a state of obvious intoxication. 2. This can combine with the situation above. As alcoholics progress in their disease, their bodies begin to lose their ability to process alcohol efficiently. This can lead to the condition mentioned above occurring after very little intake above their "maintenance" dose. One might add a third factor: alcoholics are people who, by their very nature, don't know the meaning of "enough." Given the kinds of drinks they tend to pour for themselves, or the doubles and triples served by knowing bartenders, they may well be partaking of a bit more of "The Creature" (as our Irish friends call it) than is obvious.
Water won't hurt. I don't see a reason why you cannot drink water on empty stomach!
Increase your chances of getting drunk or intoxicated. Although it wont alter your alcohol blood level your reaction to the alcohol will change.
"On an empty stomach, blood alcohol concentration peaks about one hour after consumption, depending on the amount drunk; it then declines in a more or less linear manner for t…he next four hours. Alcohol is removed from the blood at a rate of about 3.3 mmol/hour (15 mg/100 ml/hour), but this varies in different people, on different drinking occasions, and with the amount of alcohol drunk. Rate of absorption of alcohol depends on several factors. It is quickest, for example, when alcohol is drunk on an empty stomach and the concentration of alcohol is 20-30%. Thus, sherry, with an alcohol concentration of about 20% increases the levels of alcohol in blood more rapidly than beer (3-8%), while spirits (40%) delay gastric emptying and inhibit absorption. Drinks aerated with carbon dioxide�for example, whiskey and soda, and champagne�get into the system quicker. Food, and particularly carbohydrate, retards absorption: blood concentrations may not reach a quarter of those achieved on an empty stomach. The pleasurable effects of alcohol are best achieved with a meal or when alcohol is drunk diluted, in the case of spirits."(from the bmj.com website) Foods help absorb the alcohol so the content isn't as strong when it filters through the liver.It is also not a good idea to drink on a empty stomach because the alcohol tears up the stomach lining. Eating even a sandwich before drinking can help immensely, the bread absorbs liquids like a sponge. ABout 80% of the alcohol absorbed into the body is through the small intestine while 20% is through the stomach. A guess to why is probably because the surface area in contact with the alcohol containing drink is simply greater in the small intestine than the stomach. Also, the small intestine is DESIGNED to extract chemicals from food and deliver them to the bloodstream whereas the stomach is designed to break down food. Absorption into the stomach is not a primary function of the stomach. WHen food is placed into the stomach, the stomach closes it's bottom opening into the small intestine to hold the food until it can break it down into a mostly liquid form to be passed into the small intestine to be absorbed. WHen you drink on an empty stomach, the stomach has no reason to remain closed to the liquid so it quickly opens up and passes the drink on to the small intestine to be absorbed. Putting food in forces the stomach to hold that liquid in the stomach longer and that's why the person doesn't get drunk as quick. What is interesting is that the type of food doesn;t matter.
No. It's the amount of alcohol ingested in a given time frame that matters, not the temperature of the drink.
No. That is an old myth. There is no truth to it at all.
Rubbing alcohol is extremely poisonous and if ingested it will lead to headaches nausea, vomiting, anesthesia and coma. Above is good answer. Rubbing alcohol is isopropyl alc…ohol, which is poisonous. DRINKING alcohol is ethyl alcohol.
In far advanced stages of the disease, when the liver is no longer functioning well, it is possible. Generally speaking, however, alcoholics can drink more than than non-alcoh…olics without showing it. That does not mean they are not drunk, but simply that they hide it better. No, every drink in the blood BAC is equal to 0.025%. Intoxication begins at 0.08% the liver illuminates 1 drink per hour.
Have something light in your stomach. A little snack perhaps.
Simply put, yes. Though it should be noted that regardless of food in the stomach or not, alcohol destroys protective prostaglandins that protect the gastric mucosal lining fr…om acid increasing the risk of erosive gastritis and ulceration.
I wouldn't think so. Alcohol is very acetic and can bother the ulcer further let alone hurt your liver as well.
Because you caught your stomach off guard.
Because you are usually drinking on an empty stomach. There is a widely-held belief that the altitude is an issue, but the pressure altitude of a airline jet's cabin is held a…t a minimum of 8000 feet above mean sea level. That is not sufficiently low air pressure to affect your level of intoxication. It would require a cabin altitude of 12 - 14,000 feet to have a noticeable effect, and at that pressure altitude everyone would be getting headaches. That's why the pressure is kept at 8K, along with the fact that lower pressures could precipitate other problems.
