Study: Drinkers are twice as likely to lose their inhibitions in unfamiliar bar

Professor Mike Fillmore, an expert on the effects of alcohol on inhibitions from the University Of Kentucky who was not involved in the study, told LiveScience.com that the research clearly shows that ‘tolerance isn’t portable’.

He added: ‘Just because you can function well while drinking in known situations doesn’t mean you take that anywhere.

‘It’s not a personal attribute.’
