How Alcohol Affects the Body

Alcohol is a substance that can have a dramatic effect on a person’s behavior. The chemicals that are absorbed when consuming alcohol can affect both the mental and physical abilities of the intoxicated person, potentially making it difficult for an inebriated person to drive. Thus, understanding these effects can help people to avoid incidents of driving while intoxicated or other potentially dangerous events.

If you or someone you love has been accused of driving while intoxicated, there may be steps you can take to prove your innocence and avoid the damaging repercussions of a DWI conviction. Contact the experienced Raleigh DWI defense attorneys at the Law Office of Jim Black at 919-600-4609 to discuss your case with a knowledgeable lawyer today.

Immediate Effects of Alcohol

Taking the time to investigate the way that the body absorbs alcohol as well as the effects it can have on a person can be important. Some of the most commonly experienced immediate effects to alcohol consumption include:

  • Slowed reaction time
  • Thinned blood
  • Inability to make rational decisions
  • Slurred speech
  • Double vision
  • Inability to measure depth or distance

Each individual may experience intoxication differently, but when someone chooses to operate a vehicle after while exhibiting these symptoms of alcohol exposure, he or she could be in danger of DWI charges.
