Here are 3 facts about alcohol you probably didn't know

Alcohol is a fascinating drink. It has the potential to alter the way you feel and can impact your motor functions. There are many things about alcohol and its effects that you should know.

Here are three interesting facts about alcohol and how it may affect you. Keep these in mind the next time you plan on drinking, so you have a better understanding of how what you drink will impact your night.

1. Alcohol is a depressant

As a depressant, alcohol is an interesting substance. If you drink modestly, then you may feel more relaxed. If you drink too much, however, you may become angry or depressed.

2. What you mix with your drink could affect your blood alcohol content (BAC)

What you mix with the alcohol in your drink could impact your BAC. For example, researchers at Northern Kentucky University found that mixing alcohol with a diet soda results in a higher BAC.

3. Your body expels alcohol at an average rate of .015% per hour

Nothing -- not your weight, gender, age or a caffeinated beverage -- will change how long it takes for the alcohol to leave your system.

These are just three of many facts about alcohol that you should know. Of course, if you plan to drink on a night out, it's a good idea to schedule a safe ride home. If you have had too much to drink, it's best not to get behind the wheel. Aside from the dangers that this poses to you and others, a DUI could have a significant impact on your life.
