Does weight affect alcohol tolerance?

Does weight affect alcohol tolerance?

Many factors influence your body's ability to absorb and tolerate alcohol. Additionally, the less you weigh, the more you will be affected by a given amount of alcohol.

Does size matter with alcohol tolerance?

Direct alcohol tolerance is largely dependent on body size. Large-bodied people will require more alcohol to reach insobriety than lightly built people. Thus men, being larger than women on average, will typically have a higher alcohol tolerance.
