I’m in My 40s; How Come Everyone My Age Seems to Have Problems “handling” Alcohol?

Question by lina inverse: I’m in my 40s; how come everyone my age seems to have problems “handling” alcohol?
When I was younger, I had very good tolerance of alcohol, but now everyone my age (including myself) seem to get really affected by alcohol both during and after having a few. I’ve pretty much quit, but I always wondered “what happened?” that I can’t enjoy a margarita anymore without getting really stupid, and feeling like crap the next day.

Answer by ghost
Wear and tear on the body. My real mom died at 51 due to liver problems. This is a good indication that you need to not drink.

Answer by holey moley
I’m 50, and I handle alcohol just fine. Because I no longer wish to be drunk, I limit myself to 2 or 3 drinks.
