Alcohol absorbtion through skin.

    Ok, I'm drinking a whisky (a rather fine Islay blend too) and I'm increasingly noticing that the feeling in my upper lip is vanishing where the drink passes over it. I can only assume that I'm directly absorbing the alcohol through my skin, and the neurones in there are blind drunk. Am I right in assuming this, and is it doing any damage to me?
