Tolerance to alcohol varies significantly by person


The Times of India is reporting that the number of drinks consumed is a poor measure of consumption. Generally, two pints of normal beer, one large glass of wine or three vodka pegs can push a person beyond the 80mg limit. Blood alcohol content (BAC) is not an accurate indicator of the level of impairment either.
Tolerance to alcohol varies from one person to another, and can be affected by factors like adaptation to chronic alcohol use, genetics and synergistic effects of drugs. Therefore it is important to know your own drinking limits and to stick to them.

  1. I am now 12 weeks pregnant. Ive quite smoking cold turkey drinking the whole nine yards. I want my baby to be as healthy as it can be. Now I have had several people in my office tell me that its actually good for to drink a glass of red wine a day while pregnant, that it would actually help with mine and the baby’s blood pressure. But my grandmother says thats crazy and that it would not be good at all. Help let me know whats best for me and my future child. Thank you.
