Not always: Someone who has drank enough to be "sociable" (usually. 04-.14) feels that way due to alcohol suppressing one's inhibition (aka: filter/common sense/pc /etc.) so, what is said is not likely "different" per se, just un-filtered and more direct. ...Read more

See your health care: Provider. Hangovers can last several days, and 4 days is not unusual, particularly if it was a very heavy drinking episode. In this case, an ounce of prevention is worth MORE than a pound of cure, and you need to sharply reduce your intake of alcohol.

Need advice on what is the the difference between the high feeling and the drunk feeling?

With higher than moderate levels. People who drink regularly get tolerance, and need more and more alcohol to produce the same feelings. Depends on how fast, how much, what kind... ...Read more

I feel more like the real me when I'm drunk/stoned than I do when I'm sober. Is this weird?

I would call it sad: Before I would refer to it as "weird". This suggests that you are in an intoxicated (alcohol &/ or drugs) state a fair amount. This may also mean that you feel more disinhibited when intoxicated. Please remember that the effects of your drug & alcohol use are likely to catch up with you at some time. ...Read more

What do you suggest if my friend drunk a bottel cap of toilet cleaning phenoyl if it will dangerous please tell me about its effets?

What do you suggest if my friend drunk a bottel cap of toilet cleaning phenoyl if it will dangerous please tell me about its effets?

Probably too late: To do anything about it. Asking on Healthtap is not what I would advise in an emergency = there are poison control center hotlines in every city. If this friend drank phenol, even a bottlecap full may be highly toxic and s/he needs to go to the nearest emergency department, preferably in a Trauma Center if that is available. Since it is caustic, and may be combined with acids it needs expert care ...Read more

I can't go out in public without medication (1-2 etizolam daily) and still cannot approuch woman I also get well to drunk which is unattractive help?

Before all else-: Lets address that you have described yourself as a "heavy drinker" and conditions as "alcohol intoxication, confusion and memory loss". Do you know that you kill your brain cells when you do this. It will not help your anxiety or difficulty going into public. Encourage you to get into treatment to deal with this. Cognitive behavioral therapy is especially helpful. Psychiatric medications may be. ...Read more

Could being drunk increase detox?

Why do drunk people breathe rapidly?

They don't always: Most people do not either increase or decrease their respiratory rate with mild to moderate intoxication, and with severe intoxication their breathing may actually slow down. If respirations are rapid, it may be due to alcoholic ketoacidosis, a metabolic disturbance caused by alcohol that causes the body to hyperventillate to get rid of carbon dioxide and compensate for acidosis. ...Read more

Is it bad to get piercing when drunk?

Bad versus Good: We do not use words like bad or good in medicine in general. Is something 'healthy' or not is the real question.

Why is it that when I get drunk I get angry?

Why is it that when I get drunk I get angry?

Being drunk: Alcohol is a substance that disinhibits you -- meaning you just respond without thinking. The first drink or so may relax you, but getting drunk allows other impulses to come up and not be run through our usual brain cortex before acting upon them. Depending on who you're with and what you're saying to them (or them to you) this can be dangerous. ...Read more
