What Happens to Your Body When You Drink Too Much Alcohol

Learn about the symptoms of alcohol poisoning that would dramatically impact your health and how it may cost you your life if it’s not properly addressed.

Don’t:

Tell them to sleep it off. The blood alcohol content can continue to rise even when they’re not drinking.

Give them coffee. This will further dehydrate the person.

Instruct them to walk around. This may only cause falls and bumps, which may result in serious injuries, given the brain’s unfit condition.

Ask them to take a cold shower. Alcohol lowers your body temperature, and making them feel colder than they already feel could lead to hypothermia.

Lastly, don’t wait for all the symptoms of alcohol poisoning to show up and don’t hesitate to call for emergency medical help immediately. Remember, BAC levels can rise rapidly, and time is of the essence in this situation. Being a minute too late could mean irreversible damage or even death.
