Why do I feel out of body after drinking? Why is this? Alcohol is a depressant which affects your brain’s natural level of happiness chemicals like serotonin and dopamine. This means that although you’ll feel an initial ‘boost’ the night before, the next day you will be deficient in these same chemicals, which may lead to feeling anxious, down or depressed.
How does alcohol escape the body? About 90 per cent of alcohol is eliminated by the body’s metabolism. While the kidneys and gastro-intestinal tract play a role in this process, the liver is the main organ responsible for transforming alcohol absorbed by the blood into substances that your body can process and eliminate.
What happens to the body when you drink alcohol? Alcohol dulls the parts of your brain that control how your body works. This affects your actions and your ability to make decisions and stay in control. Alcohol influences your mood and can also make you feel down or aggressive.
What does it feel like to blackout from drinking? People with this type of blackout, also called an “en bloc” blackout, have amnesia that can last for many hours. It can feel like you weren’t there for the events that occurred. A person can progress from blacking out to passing out.
