Alcohol Enema

Alcohol enema involves placing a small tube into someone’s rectum and pouring alcohol into the colon.The alcohol is absorbed directly into the bloodstream,which causes the person to get drunk faster.Alcohol dehydrogenase breaks down ethanol to make it less toxic for the body.In 2004, a man died after his wife gave him a sherry enema, causing his blood alcohol level to soar to 0.47.Young people have been finding ways to get alcohol in their bodies.People get drunk from games like beer pong and flip cup.Some could even get drunk from been simple boredom, or curiosity.Robert Pfeifer is the founder of the rehab center Sober College.As their bodies develop a tolerance for toxic substances, abusers seek out stronger and faster highs.

Alcohol is a colorless, limpid, volatile,flammable, water-miscible liquid, C OH, having a  odor and pungent, burning taste, the intoxicating principle of fermented liquors.Alcohol exposure also may affect regulating mood, aggression, sexual activity, sleep, and sensitivity to pain.Alcohol effects one of the neurotransmitters which is dopamine, regulates motor function, pleasure and reward, and attention.It would affect the body functions in producing body movements, stereotyped movements such as walking, breathing, or swallowing,movements of the arms and legs,body functions all over really.

My opinion from the article is that teens shouldnt do what they see other teens do.Stop trying to fit in and be yourself.I think the age for drinking should remain at 21 where its at because nowadays there is alot of 18 yr old teens who got cars and are driving so if they lower the drinking age we might be contributing to more fatal accidents if they tend to drive drunk. Lowering the drinking age might influence 18 yr olds to buy alcohol for their younger friends under the age limit.Another reason why I think it should stay where its at is because maturity doesnt come with age so if 18 yr old get to drink but still act or have he mind as a 13 yr old things may go wrong.
