We all know that some people will naturally get drunk more quickly. Especially if they drink too much alcohol in a short period of time with no food in their stomach, or if they are of low weight. Some people have the ability to drink more than others due to different genetic factors or simply because, over time, they have increased their tolerance. This is similar to other drug users. The irony is though, that being able to “hold your alcohol” is an indication that you may actually have a drinking problem.
