Information on Tolerance

Highly recommend! Colin thank you so much for your dedication. Thank you for actually wanting to sincerely help and give us the best outcome we can get. You are by far one of the best. You helped my bf reschedule a court date after it was missed and was able to give him the same plea deal. Thank you again Colin.

Absolutely wonderful! Collin was fantastic. He really fought for me and I am very happy with the outcome of my case. He really fought for my case to have a positive outcome and was supportive, easy to get ahold of when needed and walked me through everything. I would definitely recommend him to anyone and everyone!!

I would highly recommend Hoeller McLaughlin. They helped my husband on a probation violation case and did an excellent job. Dustin Trammel was our attorney and he communicated with us and was supportive and helpful throughout the process. Very good legal service and would recommend this firm.

I can not say enough about how grateful I am that Dustin Trammel was my attorney! Having no experience with court proceedings, Dustin explained everything and stayed in touch with me the entire time. I couldn’t have asked for a better attorney! Very highly recommend!!

In order to best represent your legal interests, it is important for your DWI lawyer in Fort Worth to have a comprehensive understanding of alcohol absorption and its impact on you. One key aspect to this knowledge is understanding tolerance and how it affects you.

How Tolerance Has Developed

A Fort Worth DWI attorney can explain that there are several theories that scientists have proposed that explain how alcohol tolerance develops.

One theory is that alcohol interferes with the body’s nerve cell impulses. When a person consumes alcohol over a long period of time, this may cause the enzyme that is involved in the process to be affected and in turn compensate for the interference caused by alcohol.

Another theory states that repeated exposure to alcohol influences the cell membrane to increase the amount of saturated fat or cholesterol content, causing the membrane to become more rigid.

A third theory is that repeated exposure to alcohol affects the neurotransmitters.

Effect of Tolerance

If individuals are routinely consuming alcohol, it is likely that they will develop a tolerance to it. This causes them to be desensitized to the effect of alcohol and may make them think that they are sober even when their blood alcohol content exceeds the legal limit. Individuals who become alcoholics often have an increased tolerance to alcohol even when their blood alcohol content level is very high.

Some studies have shown that these individuals exhibit few external indicators of being under the influence at these elevated levels. Other studies have found no meaningful correlation between a person’s blood alcohol content level and performance levels for individuals who have developed a tolerance for alcohol.
