Not that I am drinker by any means, and being the size I am, when I do drink it does not take many and probably why I am questioning this subject. But I was going through some pictures on the camera and noticed some real differences in appearance. I notice my smile is not the smile that I like, that my eyes are not looking into the camera and I don't hold myself like I do when I am not drinking, have you ever noticed this about yourself, past or currently??

You just look redder - the redder you are, the better your blood circulation. Some people think they are cool when they can drink a lot and not turn red. Actually it means that are very unhealthy - probably their veins are all clogged up lol.

When your blood circulates wildly... you feel hot and are more inclined to do things you wouldn't normally do. :P

I don't think I've ever seen a picture of me when I've been drinking - but since I haven't done since I was much younger I guess I don't have to worry about them.

It definitely takes its toll on a body. Thinner girls will notice pot bellies when drinking. I even notice a bit of bloat. Your face bloats up often too and the dehydration causes your body to change appearance. That's why it won't take long for a daily drinker to age.

No I never thought about that. But it certainly makes sense that we wouldn't look as good.

I guess so. When I drink, wich i sometimes do - I tend to get very shiny eyes =) And i also seem to laugh alot more than I usually do. I gues it is because the judgement is different =)

This deficiency of our eyes is exploited in color printing, TV, photography, computers and in fact by the entire color technology as well as the art on Earth. All imaginable colors are reproduced from just 3 color components - RGB. EXAMPLE A computer screen (or a photo) can display a beautiful landscape using only Red, Green and Blue (RGB) pixels (or pigments). However the light emitted or reflected by that landscape has entirely different spectra than the light emitted by the computer screen (or a photo), even though we may not be able to see any difference in colors using our eyes.

I don't think my appearance changes when I drink BUT other people seem to look different - LOL The ugly, geeky guy in the corner suddenly looks like George Clooney, and the girl with the bottle-end glasses metamorphs into Angelina Jolie - LOL Just being light hearted hun.
