... Why on earth are you drinking that many beers, hangovers aside?

Yes, alcohol affects a smaller body more quickly and strongly than a larger body, our blood alcohol content is changed more dramatically than someone bigger due to them having a larger fluid volume to dilute that same quantity alcohol into, among other things.

Beer and wine in moderation won't pose health issues for anyone small OR large, and so drinking one or two may be a wiser and healthier tactic than getting drunk to the point of a hangover. Pace yourself, eat while drinking and have plenty of water between each serving of alcohol. Then lay off the frat boy quantities of booze. There are better ways to enjoy a party than buzzed.
