Increased Tolerance

Habitual consumption of alcohol plays an integral role in how the alcohol impacts an individual. This issue is understood in terms of the word “tolerance.”

What Is Tolerance?

Tolerance is understood in context of two primary factors:

-The impact of alcohol is subject to decrease after ongoing exposure to the same dosage level.

-If the dosage is increased, the original effect can be repeated.

Tolerance results from metabolic changes and modifications within the individual’s nervous system. The two major factors that contribute to tolerance include 1. a decreased dosage of alcohol coming in contact with the area when the effect is produced and 2. a lowered response level of the tissue to the dosage.

The Different Types of Tolerance: What You Should Know

There are many distinct kinds of tolerance:

-Acquired tolerance transpires due to changes in the body’s mode of absorbing, distributing, and eliminating alcohol. It also results from the cells of the body becoming resistant to the alcohol’s effects. This resistance is referred to as cellular tolerance.

-Acute tolerance takes place when people are less impaired when at the same BAC during the elimination or falling portion of the alcohol curve than the absorption or rising portion.
