Is alcohol a depressant or a stimulant?


2 Answers

Although classified as a depressant, the amount of alcohol consumed determines the type of effect. Most people drink for the stimulant effect, such as a beer or glass of wine taken to loosen up but if a person consumes more than the body can handle, they then experience alcohol's depressant effect.

Initially, alcohol does have some stimulant affects, after which it tends to slow down your central nervous system, acting then as more of a depressant.
