Alcohol when ingested acts acts as an stimulant of CNS, hence resulting in increased heart rate, as time passes it 's metabolized in the liver in sugar and than to fat, and now it begins to act as a depressant of CNS, AND there is fall of heart rate. The 90 bpm is due to a reflex phenomena, and an undesirable symptom. You please better leave it immediately for your own good, because when health is lost it never comes back, honour the Blessings of God; as more than 40% of bed is occupied in hospitals due to complication/s of alchololism.
