This does not mean at all that your body temperature has changed, rather it is only felt. After a while, your body temperature will drop rapidly and the risk of hypothermia will also increase. People should stay away from substances containing caffeine and alcohol in winter, because these things reduce body heat rapidly. Consuming alcohol can reduce your body temperature rapidly, which in many cases also proves fatal.
