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 legal intoxicant. Alcohol is more or less yeast's piss, yet some people drink it like water. I really don't see why it deserves to be legal. If the gov't weren't making money from it then it certainly wouldn't be. Alcohol kills more people than all of the other illegal drugs combined, and that's not even including its indirect deaths. Many people, if not everyone, seem to think alcohol is harmless simply because it's legal and many people do it. It causes a considerable amount of damage to the brain and liver. Despite this, people who consume alcohol have told me marijuana will kill my brain cells. I always get a kick out of that.
Person A: LET'S GET WASTEDDD!!!!!!!!!!
Person B: No thank you, I'd much rather enjoy a blunt to the dome.
Person A: Fuckin pothead! You're frying your brain you know!!!!!!!!!
Person B: You do know alcohol has been proven to cause both brain and liver damage right? And that there is no conclusive evidence that marijuana harms the brain?
Person A: You stupid druggie....Um...You don't know what you're talking about!
Person B: Yeah, whatever. Have fun with your booze buddy. *Proceeds to light L*

One of the select few legal drugs.

100x more people die every year from alcohol than from all illegal drugs combined.

Alcohol can be a huge amount of fun, though.

The greatest tool every created. The key is not to intake it at parties, but encourage every one else to drink freely. This way, your clear and sober mind will quickly become surrounded by drunk idiots, and you can take advantage of each and every one of them. If you're an ugly dude, no worries, a little alcohol will totally change a girls view on you. Same goes for girls, if you give a guy a couple of brews, he will hit anything that moves.
There is a difference between refraining from drinking and being the designated driver, the latter being the equivalent of being the party's bitch.

Hey man, stop smoking that reefer and have some alochol, the choice of champions.
