Alocohol is a metabolic poison. As your liver removes it from your body you feel "drunk". This is actually low grade poisioning. Alcohol poisoning is just a very high level of intoxication. Inability to walk, talk or be responsive (i. e. passed out) is alcohol poisoning. People die from this every year.
