Effects of too much of a good thing.

Classical decomposition of gait after you have a few too many for far too long. Unfortunately, taken to excess, these changes can be permanent, rather than transient in the less frequent imbiber. Be careful how you conduct your own, personal research : ) Be careful out there...

"Our results revealed several significant findings: (1) stability declined much faster from alcohol intoxication between 0.06% and 0.10% BAC (60-140%) compared with between 0.0% and 0.06% BAC (30%); (2) sustained exposure to repeated balance perturbations augmented the alcohol-related destabilization; (3) there were stronger effects of alcohol intoxication on stability in lateral direction than in anteroposterior direction; and (4) there was a gradual degradation of postural control particularly in lateral direction when the balance perturbations were repeated at 0.06% and 0.10% BAC, indicating adaptation deficits when intoxicated.
