1) The active ingredient in alcohol is ethyl alcohol, which is produced by yeast. Working much like ether, alcohol puts the brain to sleep. Alcohol functions as a depressant to the central nervous system and slows down body functions. In large amounts, alcohol causes sedation, intoxication, unconsciousness, and possible death. Aside from significant negative physical consequences, chronic use of alcohol can lead to physical and psychological addiction.

2) Colorless, volatile liquid obtained by distillation and fermentation of carbohydrates (grain, molasses, potatoes irish). Alcohol is antiseptic and cooling but is also very drying to the hair and skin; care should thus be taken not to use too much.

3) This constituent of wine is a natural by-product of fermentation. It is one of the main pillars of perceived flavor, the others being "Acid", "residual Sugar" (and/or "Glycerin") and "Tannin". The presence of these components define a wine that has "good balance". For tablewines the wine label must, by law, state the alcohol content of the wine within the bottle, usually expressed as a percentage of the volume. Table wines do not usually exceed 14% alcohol content - (11% to 12.5% is generally considered the optimum amount) - although a few, such as Zinfandel, can go up to a 17% level. Sweet dessert wines fall in the same range. Fortified wines - (eg: Sherry, Port etc) - range from 17% to 21% alcohol content.

4) Ethanol or ethyl alcohol (C2H5OH), the liquid produced from sugar by fermentation that can make you drunk

5) A chemical compound formed by the action of yeast on the sugar content of grapes during fermentation. Most wines have between 7 and 25 percent alcohol, which gives wine is vinosity. If wine has too much alcohol for its body weight, it is unbalanced, and will taste uncharacteristically heavy or hot. The quality will be noticeable in aroma and aftertaste.

6) A general class of hydrocarbons that contain a hydroxyl group (OH). The term "alcohol" is often used interchangeably with the term "ethanol," even though there are many types of alcohol. (See Butanol, Ethanol, Methanol.)

A drug that is 10x more dangerous than weed, but championed and galvanized in our society as a rite of passage.

Starts out taking the edge off, but can quickly degenerate into violence, belligerence and death...
So we can carry bottles of alcoholic whiskey and Vodka out on the streets when we're 21 legally, but if a Cop catches a whiff of marijuana they can beat us blindsided and let us get ass handled in prison?

Dam...shits done changed... or it should change anyway

A toxin typically derived from the fermentation of sugars in various fruits or vegetables. This is then distilled and utilized in a variety of ways in order to render a shitty day forgotten, make unattractive women appear more appealing and ultimately dull the pain of your disappointing life.

I was so drunk I didn't remember any of it, but she seemed happy the next morning.

A great beverage, and a great song written from the point of view of BEER!
"I can make anybody pretty
I can make you believe any lie
I can make you pick a fight
with somebody twice
your size.
Well I've been known to cause a few breakups
and I've been known to cause a few births
I can make you new friends
Or get you fired from work.
And since the day I left Milwaukee,
Lynchburg, Bordeaux, France
Been makin the bars
Lots of big money
and helpin white people dance
I got you in trouble in high school
but college now that was a ball
you had some of the best times
you'll never remember with me
Alcohol, Alcohol" --Brad Paisley, my hero.
