Questions and Answers

Does making yourself pee sober up faster?


No, because once you drink the alcohol it enters into your blood stream and not on your bladder where urine comes from. Insobriety can only be measured by your blood alcohol level, and your urination will not change it. If you pee, you will only rid yourself of the liquids you drink, but the alcohol that made you drunk will still remain in you. The alcohol will continuously affect you until it gets into your liver. Alcohol will make you pee more, which can lead to dehydration and can also dehydrate your brain. This can result in brain malfunction as well, which will compound your feeling of drunkenness.

No, the amount of urine you produce will not inherently sober you up faster. Your body can only process so much of any given toxin or drug at any point in time. With alcohol it is approximately 1 pure oz of alcohol every 1-2 hours

If you stay awake until sober does your hangover go away?


No. You still need to sleep in order for your body to fully recover from all the drinking you did the night before. Just make sure you do the following to help yourself recover faster:

  • drink a lot of water
  • take a bath
  • sleep

Is sobering up after a four day binge dangerous?

My brother is an alcoholic. He just went on a four day binge. He is afraid to sober up because he thinks it could cause a heart attack. I think he can stop drinking, drink lots of water and Gatorade, eat and rest and sober up.

He will be fine if he was to sober up even after a four day drinking binge. Me in my history have went on week binges of drinking but when I decided to stop for a day it was as easy as not drinking. I sobered up and in fact felt better than I did when I was drinking. Sleeping, Gatorade and rest will indeed help him to sober himself up.

Does lemon juice sober you up?

Yes, somehow it does help you recover faster. You will also need to drink a glass of iced water and take a refreshing bath. The most important thing to remember is to take some rest by sleeping it off until you feel better.
