In brief: No
Tolerance is related to your liver, brain and perhaps state of nutrition.
Alcohol stays in the water compartments of the body and not in the fat cells so fat stores are less relevant in terms of tolerance. However, overweight patients may be in less control of their appetite behavior in general.
