Psyche Indicator of alcohol use

What is the enzyme that's a sensitive indicator for alcohol use?

Think of Judy Garland and Tornado : GGT(gamma glutamyl transferase)
"Granmma Tammy, when can I come home? I saw an elk fall into that hole and it was just... plain horrible!"

Notable historical tidbits
*Judy Garland was born Frances Ethel Gumm in Grand Rapids, Minnesota, on June 10, 1922. (Lots of G's in this sentence and a T in Minnesota)
*Judy Garland fought alcohol and drug addiction her whole life, due to the pressures of her work environment.

Ysa like? Then hit the sneeze (eh tank you!) button
