Alcohol (chemically ethanol) travels through the food path of digestion into the stomach.

Stomach absorbs 20% of the alcohol. This propels it to reach the bloodstream rather quickly.

The remaining percentage is driven to the small intestine.

Now, the alcohol in small intestine joins the bloodstream to reach to liver.

Liver breaks the alcohol molecules down easing the oxidization of alcohol with ADH enzyme. The result of this: change of ethanol (alcohol) into acetaldehyde which is toxic and carcinogenic.

The acetaldehyde is now metabolized into less harmful acetic acid. This enhances the accumulation of fatty acids.

More alcohol means it circulates to all body parts as ADH enzyme lose control over the alcohol amount.

According to studies a normal liver can handle 0.5 ounce of alcohol per hour. If the amount exceeds it could have following effects:

• The arrival of alcohol to heart sees the decrease in blood pressure and relaxation of blood vessels.

• The alcohol that the heart pumps to the lungs causes alcoholic smell while you breathe.

• Lungs sends back the alcohol to heart which is pumped to brain. This slows down the nerve cell, as a result, you lose your accuracy to think and move.

• It also decreases the A. D. Hormone which causes dehydration.

Once you go on, you will hardly want to stop.

You are fine with the amount on the bill that day/night. You wake up fresh and aware of what you did last night, you will regret.


2. Hangover

The hangover you will gain the very next day could be another contributor to your ruined travel.

While you will be there to explore, losing a day because of hangover is a loss.

You could be stuck in bed for more than a day if the hangover is strong.


3. Deviation off Purpose

Alcohol will take no time in kidnapping your purpose of traveling with the help of pleasure it generates.

Instead of being in a beautiful accessible hill, you may choose to stick in a bar.


4. Physical Frailty

Traveling asks for a good health. Consumption of alcohol exposes you to the risk of physical weakness.

You may not enjoy your time off as well as you would have liked to.

Failing to control alcohol is inviting a brawl without an envelope.

A journey that takes you to hospital or in prison is not your dream journey definitely.
