Would like to know if if alcohol is a drug?

QUESTION
Would like to know if if alcohol is a drug?
Doing an essay on drugs and want to know if alcohol is one.

ANSWER
Alcohol is a drug, just like caffeine, cigarettes and marijuana, crack, LSD etc.

There are two types of drugs: depressants and stimulants. Stimulants decrease your reaction time (making you more awake, such as coffee). Alcohol is a depressant, which means it increases your reaction times (slows you down)

And, directed at ‘Perfect 80s Hair’, it does actually increase your reaction time rofl, it’s not a good thing. Increasing reaction time = slow reactions. Hence why drink driving is so dangerous because you often don’t react in time
