It’s no secret that alcohol is a common in college environments. And, without getting to preachy-preachy, here’s the latest research on the dangers of mixing alcohol with energy drinks.
A common issue when consuming energy drinks with alcohol is that it keeps you alter, even if you have had too much to drink. If you find yourself drinking to excess on a regular basis, it could be a sign of alcoholism. When alcohol starts to have a negative influence on your life, it might be a good idea to consider checking into a dual diagnosis treatment center. These centers combine treatment of addiction with treatment for any mental, behavioral or pain management disorders from which you might be suffering, which ensures that you emerge as a much healthier person.
According to a new study published in Alcoholism: Clinical & Experimental Research, combining energy drinks with alcohol removes any barriers that warn you that you re drinking too much. Alcoholism is a serious and life threatening disease. If someone you know is struggling with a dependency to alcohol, consider treatment from Narconon rehab.
For instance, when you drink alcohol alone, you go through the stages of feeling the buzz and when you drink too much, you start feeling sedated (tired and sleepy) because your body knows you’re reaching a threshold.
On the contrary, when you add energy drinks to alcohol, your body gets stimulated instead of sedated, causing drinkers to be more alert and to continue drinking—which results in binge drinking.
What causes this stimulated state of mind? One would think it is caffeine, but the researchers insist that it is the mix of all stimulating ingredients in the beverages including taurine, glucose and ginseng. Alcoholism is a serious and life threatening disease. If someone you know is struggling with a dependency to alcohol, please consider helping them with counseling or treatment.
