Sober yourself up

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

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.
