    Is it True That Women Get Drunk Faster Than Men?

    If so - Why?

    I have heard that is the case usually due to body size - men tend to be bigger so it doesn't "hit them" quite as fast because it takes longer to process.  Of course I've seen women who are seriously heavy drinkers that can outdrink most men, which is not a good thing because it means they've developed tolerance etc.

    In my opinion I would say yes they do get drunk faster than men. I have heard that a women can not break down the alcohol as fast as a man can, plus as Christin said men are larger and bigger people.

    Not as a rule.  However, since men apparently have smaller brains than women (as identified and evidenced by the political mentality) then men probably get drunk faster as they have a smaller brain size to get saturated with alcohol.
