Alcohol, Disulfiram, Effect of alcohol on nutrition

Ethyl alcohol (ethanol), abbreviated to alcohol in everyday language, has been known from time immemorial and has been used for the effect it has on the psychological state. Even small amounts depress the sense of anxiety and induce a sense of well-being and sociability. It is also valuable as an aid to sleeping if only small amounts are taken; larger amounts lead to disturbed sleep. In debilitated persons it often enhances the appetite as well as being a useful source of energy. Among its drawbacks are its induction of poor judgement and poor performance of skills requiring fine muscular movements and a loss of awareness of these changes. Of all the drugs of addiction in the western world, alcohol is by far the most abused.
