Alcohol is a drug.
It is classed as a depressant, meaning that it slows down vital functions—resulting in slurred speech,
unsteady movement, disturbed perceptions and an inability to react quickly.
As for how it affects the mind, it is best understood as a drug that reduces a person’s ability to think
rationally and distorts his or her judgment. Depending on how much is taken and the physical
condition of the individual, alcohol can cause drowsiness, vomiting, diarrhea, headaches, breathing
difficulties, impaired judgment, anemia, blackouts and unconsciousness.
