A member asked:

Is there such a thing as increased alcohol tolerance?

3 doctors weighed in across 2 answers

Yes: Some have a high tolerance and can drink a lot without seeming intoxicated. Studies have shown that such people are the ones who can eventually develop alcoholism. Also, the more a person drinks, the higher his or her tolerance can become. Finally, certain folks may have a very low tolerance for alcohol and can hardly consume any at all without having adverse effects. Good question.

Alcohol: Sure. Some have high tolerance & are likely to develop dependence, others have low tolerance to even small amounts of alcohol consumed.
