I am curious if alcohol is a blood thinner then would it cause your blood to not clot?

To a degree: Alcohol is noted to be a mild anticoagulant, making the platelets somewhat less likely to "stick together" by various means. If excessive alcohol intake results in decreased liver function, then the blood will also not clot well because the liver can't make certain blood clotting factors as it should.
