Spring Fever – Strength Magazine – April, 1928

Before dealing in detail with these phases of the subject, let me explain that intoxication of the body or it component systems cannot be caused only by alcohol, Many things can produce an effect similar to that brought about by too many consultations with the present-day progeny of the “little brown jug.” Fatigue, impure air, physical inactivity, and faulty diet can produce quite the same effect on the human body as can alcohol. You have doubtless seen athletes who were literally “out on their feet” and fighters who were “punch-drunk.” And you yourself have very likely experienced that lazy, drowsy sensation that comes on after eating a too heavy meal. You have, perhaps, many times been afflicted with that “sleepy” feeling” caused by a stuffy, ill ventilated room.
