Is having a drink first thing in the morning to steady your nerves or to get rid of a hangover, normal?

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 more

Why do I always get week-long hangovers after drinking?

Why do I always get week-long hangovers after drinking?

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. Continuing to use a substance despite regularly getting harm from that substance is a hallmark symptom of a disorder. It is because you are likely drinking way too much, too often. Stop&get help from doctor. ...Read more

Is it normal for a hangover to last 30 hours after drinking?

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

What to do if I do not get hangovers when i exercise whilst drinking?

What to do if I do not get hangovers when i exercise whilst drinking?

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. Sounds like its a problem to me. ...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 more

Can you drink an be immune to hangovers?

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 more

Why do some people feel sick when they have a hangover the next morning, from drinking?

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

On hangover i drank a liter of water in one sip, after that i felt sick and got ill. Now i'm afraid of drinking water and sometimes it makes me sick?

Too much - not good!: Good morning, too much of anything is not good. You can get water intoxication also. When it is too much, it can change the electrolyte balance of our system, and feeling sick is one way to tell you that you needed to stop drinking water at that time. When you have an unpleasant experience with anything, it stays in your memory, and you develop a fear of getting sick again. You will overcome this! ...Read more
