In brief: Alcohol?

Drinking alcohol is a pursuit to expose the body to a poison.
Indeed, the average human metabolically produces about one to two ounces of alcohol each day. We can probably neutralize an additional ounce or two, but more than this is likely harmful. Wisdom of the body is to message that a substance is harmful; vomiting and involuntary shaking are warning signals.
