How to wake yourself up when drunk?


The effects of alcohol are not going away until the alcohol is removed from your system. If you need to be awake the day after a party, find some way to take out the alcohol from your system. Alcohol is released through urine, sweat, stools and/or vomit. The last way mentioned is probably the worst, and no one wants that. Drinking a lot of water will make you urinate more, expediting the alcohol's drive out of your body. A cup of your favorite coffee will also help. Please be reminded that if you are urinating only a short time, you have to drink more water or juice to prevent dehydration. Eating will also help. An empty stomach makes our intestines absorb the alcohol faster. This will often make people sick - when they drink with an empty stomach. If our stomach is filled up, our intestines' direct absorption of the alcohol will be lessened, and its effects, such as sleepiness, will decrease. Lastly, keep yourself busy and your body moving for your system to forget your drunkenness and concentrate on your task. Producing sweat will also help you flush out alcohol and sober yourself up faster.
