How to sober up before bed is a question that has been bugging people for years. If you don’t know this already, alcohol is a depressant, and it will depress you before, during, and even after you go to sleep. When you are drunk, your bloodstream contains enough alcohol to depress you to the point where your heart will begin to pound and make you feel sick. As you wake up, you have even more alcohol in your bloodstream. And all this is going on while you are asleep.
This means that you will be more sluggish than normal, and as a result, you won’t get any sleep at all. You might wake up groggy or with a hangover the next morning, and your performance at work will suffer because of it. It’s no wonder people decide to go out drinking rather than take a break from drinking. The end result is usually a wrecked life, not to mention a wrecked vehicle.
So how do you avoid all of this? Well, one way is to go to bed drunk, but it is probably not the best way. Sleep is critical for the body, and if you do not get enough rest, your body will give in to the alcohol, and you will go through all the trouble just to get back to being sober again. Therefore, it is best to do it the other way around – hangover-free!
Do you take a cold shower before bed?
I used to be a big fan of taking a cold shower before bed, but it is actually counter-productive. Cold showers cause you to sweat. Sweating will make you wake up more drunk. I’m sure you have heard the saying that a hangover is just a hangover. Therefore, taking a shower before bed is counterproductive.
Get the alcohol out of my system before you sleep
One thing I did not want to do was go through the ordeal of having to get the alcohol out of my system before I slept. The problem with this is that you can not prevent yourself from having a reaction when you wake up in the morning. You can try to calm down with a glass of water or milk, but this will not help with the fact that your body does not know where to draw water from to hydrate itself, resulting in a dry mouth and tongue. In addition, there is a possibility that you could gag reflex your first few times drinking alcohol, which can be very dangerous.
Remedy for this problem
I discovered the best remedy for this problem, and that is to take a supplement that says greuner instead of coffee. Greuner, which is an amino acid that is found in such foods as bananas, peanut butter, parsley, and yogurt, is well known as a natural aid for people who want to quit smoking. Apparently, it also helps people who want to stop drinking all together. That is why the company that made this supplement, a small Canadian company, began to market it under the name kefir. Now, instead of having you gagging when you wake up, you will be able to sleep through the night and wake up feeling refreshed.
Remedy for alcohol addiction
Another remedy for alcohol addiction is exercising at least three to four times a week, even if you are only going to be gone for a couple of hours. You need to burn the calories that were in your body when you drank, and that means exercising. Try walking while drinking, or doing some cardio for at least thirty minutes a day. It does not matter if you drink alcohol one hour before or the next – you have to keep up the physical exercise. If you don’t, it will do absolutely no good for you, and may cause your heart rate to increase and feel like you are going to pass out.
After you get past the initial hangover and initial jitters, you will begin to see some results. It may be just in the first few days – and you can tell this by looking at the scale. As your heart rate starts to slow down, it will show that your metabolism has slowed down as well. That is one of the things that Dr. Greuner says that you need to get back into shape – your heart rate and metabolism go hand in hand, and without them you will never reach your goal of being sober.
