Can alcohol evaporation get you drunk?

So, there was an article saying if you vaporize alcohol and Inhale, that you can consume it and it will go into your bloodstream and make you drunk. 

I’m wondering if when you cook with alcohol and it burns off/evaporates if you are consuming any alcohol since it’s in the air and if you are also consuming any calories from it? Less of you have a cover to the pot of the food you are making ??? 

How long do the molecules from the alcohol stay in the air surrounding you?

    You'd have to be the biggest lightweight of all time to get drunk from alcohol evaporating from cooking. You're using only a small amount of alcohol anyway.

    For what you describe to happen there would have to be a very high concentration of alcohol vapour in the air - so much that it would making breathing more difficult than normal,

    There is no possibility whatsoever of this happening when cooking with alcohol. There is not enough alcohol used and only a part of it normally evaporates.
