Debunking Alcohol Myths… – 9/11/19


Joel turned 21 yesterday… and we are getting him ready for his big Birthday Bash this Friday 9/13 at The Steel Pub.

This morning we debunked some of those infamous alcohol myths…


“Beer before liquor, never been sicker; liquor before beer, you’re in the clear”. – Sorry Grandma, but no!  The amount of alcohol you drink and the time you drink it in matter more than the type of drinks you consume or how you mix them.

Myth: Dark beer is higher in alcohol than light beer. – Negative… Some dark beers, like stout, are actually lower in both alcohol and calories than their paler cousins.

“Puking helps you sober up and prevents hangovers”…. WRONG! Alcohol’s absorption into the bloodstream begins almost immediately, so getting rid of a likely small amount via vomit probably won’t make much of a difference.

“Taking Tylenol or Advil before heavy drinking can reduce hangover effects” – NOPE!  Taking those medications before the pain sets in won’t help — for one thing, the med’s power will wear off before your headache sets in.

“Eating before bed will reduce hangover” – …Yeah, no. By the time that pizza hits the stomach, the alcohol you’ve consumed has already been absorbed into your system. In fact, both alcohol and greasy food can contribute to acid reflex, which could mean you’ll feel even worse in the morning 

“Coffee and a cold shower will sober you up” – Suuuuuuuuuuuure. 😉 The human liver can process about one standard drink every hour. That’s 1.5 ounces of hard liquor, 5 ounces of wine, or 12 ounces of beer. Coffee or a dunk in cold water might wake you up a little, but it won’t speed up the process of eliminating the bad stuff from your system. Time is, unfortunately, the only cure. Eating a big meal before drinking will help keep you sober.
