We continue to develop the theme of proper and effective drinking. Previously, we touched on the topic of drinking alcohol, but then it was about how to drink and not get drunk. Today, let us imagine the opposite situation.
Ever since the days of Heraclitus it is known that one bottle can not be drunk twice. Therefore, we will judge how to achieve the greatest effect from the least amount of alcohol. And then we are rescued by a method that has been called “the principle of small doses” in the people.
There is such an undeniable medical fact that the oral mucosa has a remarkable ability to absorb certain medicinal substances. Suffice it to recall how a heart patient is recommended to put a tablet of nitroglycerin under the tongue, for the speedy action of it.
So it turns out that our favorite ethyl alcohol, apparently adhering to medicines, is absorbed in its larger part in this way. The fact is that the oral mucosa is abundantly supplied with arterial and venous vessels and therefore the absorption of alcohol occurs here even easier than in the stomach.
So, we deduce from here a simple and unique rule for today: any alcoholic drink, especially fizzy or warmed, intoxicates faster and more efficiently, if you drink it in small doses and keep it in your mouth for a long time. Well, casuistically refuting, thus, the Heraclitean thesis, we could finish it.
Because, on this and finish.
