It is a sign that you probably have a high tolerance to alcohol. That does not exclude that alcohol is toxic. See a doctor in person for a full answer to your health

Alcohol is a poison that never did anybody any good, ever, so stay away from it. Alcohol is killing your brain cells, testicular androgen making cells, promoting the development of cancer in many organs in addition to putting you at risk of cirrhosis and pancreatitis. Wish you good health!
