Short-term Effects of Alcohol

Responsible Service of AlcoholAlcohol can affect people differently, some people are able to consume vast amounts of alcohol in a short period of time and feel fine, whereas others can consume two drinks and feel nauseas and can’t control their body. Club Training Online RSA QLD identifies the short-term effects that alcohol can have on a person.

The reason as to why some people can consume more alcohol than others comes down to the person’s body’s reaction to alcohol, age, sex, weight, fitness level, body chemistry, food, consumption of medicines and drugs.  Therefore, as everyone is different, it means that each person can consume different levels of alcohol and feel diverse effects.

  • Lack of coordination
  • Headache
