Sure affects balance

I really don’t think that alcohol causes more nerve damage, but it certainly affected my balance when I had one beer after 2 years of no alcohol at all. I was just learning to walk again at the time, with very limited balance. I got up from the couch and walked into the kitchen, caught my toe and down I went, on both knees, that hurts. “Lost my nerve” for about an hour to try to walk again, but no no other nerve damage. The beer must have relaxed me too much!
