Alcohol poisioning: Is a serious & sometimes fatal consequence of drinking large amounts of alcohol in short period of time. It affects your breathing, gag reflex & heart rate, leading to coma. Needs emergency medical treatment thru breathing support, I.V. Fluids & vitamins.

A hangover: Lack of energy, appetite. Nausea, vomiting and diarrhea are not uncommon. If you are shaky, feel your heart beating very fast, have any blood in your stool or very black stools, you should seek care very soon. Other health problems relate to how often and how much you are drinking. The best plan is stopping completely, and if not, periodically enjoying in moderation.
