You’ve probably heard the old saying “Liquor before beer – never fear. Beer before liquor – never sick.” But it’s not true! “
So what explains all the times we were shot down by a beer and chased it with a shot of vodka and a little terrible consequences? Well it is very likely it had to do with the amount of alcohol we consumed, rather than the order, we consumed it in.
Here are some of the most surprising ideas about drinking:
1. The type of drink does not determine how intoxicated you are!
Numerous studies have shown that the rate and amount of alcohol has a much greater influence on mood than what kind of alcohol you have consumed.
2. Your beer belly is not caused by beer!
At least not only. Alcohol does not cause weight gain – calories does.
3. Suck on ear, will not help you pass a breathalyzer test!
Neither eat mints, chewing gum or smoking cigarettes. These are all often cited as methods to fool a breathalyzer, but none of them has been proven.
4. Drinking more alcohol will not cure your hangover!
It will just get you drunk again and lead to another hangover later.
5. Absinthe makes me hallucinate!
There is no hallucinogenic drug in absinthe. The sensations you are experiencing is just a result of high alcohol content.
6. Breaks can never be recalled!
You may think you are able to remember instances from your blackout, but according to studies are the memories you think you’ve actually false memories. So unless someone has registered on a camera, you will not know what happened.
7. There is no such thing as “breaking the seal”
Going once is not a set-up for several subsequent trips to the bathroom. Instead, the alcohol diuretic properties that encourages you to pee a lot.
