Some people's body can't tolerate certain levels of alcohol.
It has a way of lowering one's inhabitions.
Knew of this one gal who would let loose (including various clothing items) that they would not normally do if sober.

When the alcohol goes to the brain, it dulls every senses of the body and makes a person do things they normally would never do stone-cold sober. It's the fermented ingredients in alcohol beverages that makes you have a personality change and moods.
