Doctor insights on:
Alcohol Idiosyncratic Intoxication
Impairment at one dr: Alcohol causes impairment at even one drink. Intoxication occurs with varying amounts depending on body size, gender, and chronicity of alcohol intake. In general novice drinkers, women and people of small size will get intoxicated with lower amounts. It is urged that you not try to find it out by experimenting on yourself or some one else.
When you pass out: And slow down your breathing, it moves from intoxication (which actually means poisoning) to true alcohol poisoning. Please don't do this.
Semantics: If you are worse off secondary to acute alcohol ingestion, its poisoning.
Abnormal or Normal?: Many individuals may at sometime in their lives experience being drunk on alcohol. This is normal. Being drunk can quickly become abnormal due to its effects on the central nervous system. When drunk you llose motor control, coordination and reaction time resulting in accidents and injuries. You lose your ability to reason and make bad decisions such as driving. It is a condition best avoided.See 1 more doctor answer
Not similar: The amount of nicotine in tobacco is not enough to cause true nicotine intoxication, except when small children are exposed, usually by ingesting it. Nicotine intoxication can be lethal, and actually nicotine-like substances have been used to kill rodents and other pests. Tobacco workers also routinely get it. Alcohol intoxication looks completely different. Seizures, abd. Pain, twitches occur.

Not usually: nicotine as consumed in cigarettes, other tobacco products and e-cigarettes produces effects that are not only nothing like alcohol withdrawal, but most of them are directly the opposite of alcohol withdrawal - improved concentration together with some muscle relaxation, heightened and not dulled consciousness. In overdose, nicotine is lethal and shuts down important parasympathetic nerve function

Alcohol intoxication: what are the cognitive effects? Do I have to be afraid for my academic career that has been good so far? What can be done?
Alcohol: The earlier you quit the better it is.
TNTC: Too numerous to count. I would need much more information regarding symptom history, medical history, and physical exams / labs to comment. Sounds like it might be good to visit with your doctor. Good luck
Yes: Yes, alcohol can cause certain types of seizures. If you are prone to seizures (especially if alcohol has triggered your seizures in the past) it would be wise to stay away from alcohol.
May slow absorption: High protein and/or fatty foods can slow stomach emptying, as well as dilute alcohol content in the stomach. Can slow absorption of alcohol, and therefore modulate levels. Of course, if you overdo either, all that stuff in your stomach may not feel too good, and you might vomit. Moderation in all things.
Supportive care.: The dangers of this condition include respiratory depression and possible death, vomiting with aspiration and hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). The thrust of care in the immediate period is therefore supportive so as to prevent any of the above complications which again are and can be life threatening.
Dangerous: Do not use both! Could be very dangerous. This shows up on board questions for docs. Avoid!
