1. Digestive System:
Once alcohol is swallowed, it travels down the esophagus into the stomach and the small intestine. Avoiding the normal digestive process it goes right into the bloodstream.
2. Central Nervous System
Then the Alcohol enters the CNS. Alcohol is a depressant of the Central nervous system, meaning it slows down brain activity resulting in altered speech.
hazy thinking, etc.
3.

Circulatory system
The Alcohol then travels through the circulatory system. When large amounts of alcohol are consumed it effects how the heart works, If the heart is not pumping blood throughout the body effectively, other organs may suffer from lack of oxygen or nutrients.
4. Endocrine System
A way that alcohol affects the endocrine system is by interfering with how the body absorbs calcium, calcium is needed for strong bones. As a result, people who drink heavily have a higher risk of developing osteoporosis, a disease in which bone density declines. If bones are not strong, there is a greater possibility of fractures.
