good to remember that alcohol has a biphasic effect depending upon the level of
intoxication. Alcohol has been found to have euphoric effect at 0.05-0.06%
blood alcohol levels, after which the positive effects tend to diminish and
faculties and judgements are impaired and the dark mood sets in. So the Key to
getting that right buzz is to find out your own “sweet-spot” where you are
perfectly drunk but not too drunk as this sweet-spot differs from person to

the drinking spot and drinking partners.
