Tipsiness is the first sign that enough alcohol has entered your bloodstream and is primed to affect brain and body function. When a person is tipsy, she might start to talk more and feel more confident. This stage can also start to affect short-term memory and attention span. The person might also take more risks, even though her motor responses are slower. This puts her at a greater risk of injury.
