Alcohol : info and advice

Alcohol is obtained from the fermentation or distillation of fruits, vegetables, cereals.

Alcoholized drinks contain it in small to stronger doses. Licensed spots can sell alcohol in standard doses so that there is the same quantity of alcohol in a beer, a wine or a whisky glass for example. Elsewhere, especially with friends, dosing out the drinks correctly is more important.

Alcohol stimulates, relaxes and disinhibits. People usually seek being drunk or just want to copy their peers.
