Is alcohol a depressant?

Yes, alcohol is classified as a depressant due to its effects on the central nervous system. Depressants slow down the central nervous system and the messaging system between the brain and the body (they do not necessarily make a person feel depressed). This interruption in signals reduces awareness, alters perceptions, and impairs judgment.
