It is important for anyone to know his alcohol tolerance if he is drinking. Anyone can fall into excessive drinking by not knowing that his body can’t tolerate it any more. Uncontrolled drinking costs all of us [in the US] $2 per drink, claims the CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention]. That doesn’t include the cost of the specific drink. Reduced productivity, property and medical damages and the cost of imprisonment are just some of the factors.
