    alcohol wont increase your heart rate or breathing! however if you were to get drunk and then start dancing!! your heart rate and breathing would increase but not due to the alcohol itself but instead the dancing!!!! remember even if a person hadnt consumed any alcohol their heart rate and breathing would still increase if they were to start dancing!
