Drink Nerves Hangover
Is having a drink first thing in the morning to steady your nerves or to get rid of a hangover, normal?
No: Ask yourself these questions: 1) do you feel the need to cut back on your drinking? 2) are you annoyed when others ask you to stop? 3) do you feel guilty about drinking? 4) do you need an "eye-opener" drink in the morning to get going? More than one 'yes' response to any of these questions raises suspicion of alcohol abuse. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have better ?: why do you KEEP ON DRINKING when you get week-long hangovers every time. I am afraid the answer is that you are developing an alcohol use disorder, previously called alcohol abuse/dependency.

Yes: hangovers are highly variable, and can last anywhere from a couple of hours to several days. If you are regularly getting long-duration hangovers after drinking, I have another question for you - why are you still drinking when it regularly causes you to be out of commission for more than a day? Continuing to drink despite adverse consequences is one sign of a drinking problem. Talk to your MD. ...Read more
Don't understand ?: Were you hoping to have hangovers?? If not, exercise away. However, most people don't find being intoxicated goes along well with exercise, and alcohol may reduce muscle strength. If you are drinking regularly and routinely getting hangovers, you are drinking too much. You need to consider cutting down and perhaps discussing your drinking with a counselor.

Good question.: Nobody knows for sure. Low blood sugar, dehydration, acetaldehyde intoxication (alcohol metabolizes into acetaldehyde in your blood), and glutamine rebound are all theorized causes of hangover symptoms, but there is no definitive consensus on why people get hung over. The interesting thing is that some people never get a hangover no matter how much they drink, and nobody knows why that is either! ...Read more
How long can a hangover last, it has been 24 hours since drinking and i still feel hungover is that possible?
Probably something: In addition to the hangover. This may be a wonderful opportunity to learn not to drink too much. A bit of intoxication is fine by me - others may disagree, but there is no need to get a hangover. Even a normal few hour long one seems like a bad way to end a fun time, right? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Might be alcoholic: Often people think that being able to drink a lot & not have ill effects is a good thing. There is even a name for it, "able to hold your liquor." in fact, this is a sign of an abnormal reaction to alcohol, called alcoholism. Being alcoholic carries a stigma that is not justified. It has nothing to do with being weak. It is much like diabetes. View the video "pleasure unwoven" on youtube. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
