What is alcohol?
Alcohol is a colourless liquid contained in wine, beer, spirits, and other alcoholic beverages. Alcohol slows down the way your brain relays information to the rest of the body. Even in small quantities, alcohol drinks could affect your body at once.
The ability to metabolise alcohol differs based on factors such as gender, age, ethnicity and body size. The speed of drinking and the amount of food in the stomach while drinking also affect the rate of absorbing alcohol by the body.
The legal age to purchase alcohol in Hong Kong is 18 years of age.
