3. Why Do People Drink? It is part of a college experience It is socially acceptable It is a cheap and easy form of entertainment Peer Pressure Rebellion Perceived risk is minimal

4. Alcohol in the Body Alcohol reaches the liver where it is oxidized (changed into water, carbon dioxide and energy.) The liver converts about 1/2 ounce alcohol per hour and nothing can be done to speed it up or slow it down. The drug continues to affect the drinker until the liver metabolizes all of the alcohol circulating in the body.

5. It affects some people differently than others One drink may be too much depending on : A person’s body weight How fast a person drinks Amount of food in the person’s stomach A person’s mood Gender (women have a lower % of water in their body and less of the enzyme that breaks down alcohol)
