We denote 'Ethanol' when we discuss alcohol, the most commonly ingested of this type of chemicals. When ingested, the effects of Alcohol on human body changes gradually over the time.

-first stage is euphoria. When consumed, alcohol first irritates the mucous lining of mouth and then esophagus causing an anesthetic effect. Then it goes to stomach where only 20% of the total quantity is absorbed by it. Rest 80% is then absorbed by small intestine from where it gets distributed throughout the human body. Alcohol travels through blood and come into the vicinity of cells of almost every organ. Due to its high affinity towards water, it can penetrate almost all cellular membranes resulting in absorption by all organs.

Because of the chronic and continuous consumption of alcohol, the increase in fatty acid levels results in forming of plaque in the hepatic capillaries. This situation leads to Liver Cirrhosis. As liver performs vital role in filtration mechanism of body, malfunctioning of liver often leads to jaundice (Hepatitis).
