Alcohol Myths

Many people mistakenly believe that taking other liquids (milk), foods, or substances that line the stomach will keep them from suffering the effects of alcohol. Although some things will slow down the absorption of alcohol into the blood stream, nothing can minimize the effects to the body once alcohol has reached the bloodstream. The only cure for intoxication is time. The liver needs from one to two hours (depending on body size) to process the alcohol out of the blood.
