Asked: 2018-07-19 06:39:44
How long does it take for Alcohol to negatively affect the brain? I am experimenting with alcohol for the first time and I just want to be safe

It really just depends on your weight, age and health status. Someone could have one shot of vodka and feel the symptoms alcohol produces and it may take someone else five shots to feel how the other person feels off one shot. In your case, if you haven’t drank a lot I would take it easy. Maybe tell someone you are planning on drinking? If you’re underage I would talk with an adult. If you don’t talk with an adult, make sure you are well hydrated and around people you trust like a sibling or close friend.

If you’re having beer, I would say after two to three beers you will start to have difficulty walking, impaired memory and slow reactions. Just be safe and be around people you trust. It may seem fun to drink all the time, just know it isn’t safe and as fun as people make it out to be.
