Tips to Sober Up Faster

1 |

When last call is called, many people face the decision of if they should drive home from the bar. Ideally, one should have their last drink about 90 minutes before the night is over. That means there is no "quick fix" for sobriety as it takes about one hour to oxidize one ounce. Alcohol makes its way through the body, through the liver and then is excreted through urine and sweat. It's not gone until it's gone! So, time is the only real cure.

But don't drink coffee, tea, or soda as that could dehydrate the body just like alcohol which is not good for sobriety.

If someone has pure water or non-alcoholic beverages in between drinks, it can keep them from getting drunk faster. Also, this can help keep the body more hydrated which can reduce the effects of a hangover the next day. This is sometimes called the 'double-fisting' method- ordering a beer and a water at the same time. (You may have to pee more, but it's worth it.) After drinking is done for the evening, drink a few glasses of purified water before hitting the bed.

For the next morning when the hangover hits hard, water is absolutely the best cure. It will replenish some of the water lost in the brain, which should be at 90%. The reason for most of the symptoms is due to dehydration. Resting will ease the aches and pains. It is also suggested in some cases to take a B-complex vitamin. In fact, when alcoholics are being treated in hospitals, they are given B vitamins.
