Alcohol intoxication is a physiological state (that may also include psychological alterations of consciousness) induced by the ingestion of ethanol (ethyl alcohol, commonly known as drinking alcohol or just alcohol) or methanol (methyl or wood alcohol), though with possibly serious side effects from the latter.
Alcohol intoxication is the result of alcohol entering the bloodstream faster than it can be metabolized by the liver, which breaks down the ethanol into non-intoxicating byproducts. Some effects of alcohol intoxication (such as euphoria and lowered social inhibitions) are central to alcohol's desirability as a beverage and its history as one of the world's most widespread recreational drugs. Despite this widespread use and alcohol's legality in most countries, many medical sources tend to describe any level of alcohol intoxication as a form of poisoning due to ethanol's damaging effects on the body in large doses; some religions (such as some forms of Islam or Mormonism) consider alcohol intoxication to be a sin.
