Let's face it, sometimes we overdo it when it comes to drinking. We've all been there - the morning after a big night out, lying on the bathroom floor regretting everything we drank. But what if you want to keep going? What if you're already planning your next shot while still wiping away last night's remembrance from your mouth? The question is, how long do you need to wait after throwing up before you can start drinking again?
Understanding Alcohol Absorption and Metabolism
Before diving into this topic, let us first understand alcohol absorption and metabolism in our body. When we drink alcohol, most of it get absorbed by small intestine and enters our bloodstream within five minutes of consumption.
The liver metabolizes 90% of the consumed alcohol at a constant rate of approximately one unit per hour regardless of factors such as gender or weight (note: please discuss with appropriate health experts should further information be required).
So how soon is too soon for another round?
First things first - throwing up is not something that should be taken lightly. It indicates that your body has reached its limit and needs time to recover. That being said, every person's tolerance level varies based on different factors like age, sex, size/weight etc.
While some people might bounce back quickly others may feel nauseous for hours even days following excessive drinking so watch for warning sings like light headedness while standing/sitting down or blurred vision!
To help avoid these dreaded symptoms try spacing drinks out at least an hour apart! Also good practice could involve decreasing portion sizes slowly rather than trying to go from zero drinks immediately once feeling better.
It is also recommended that individuals who experience vomiting after consuming too much alcohol refrain from consuming any more beverages containing ethanol until their next hangover free morning.
Factors Affecting Tolerance Levels
As mentioned earlier, there exist several different factors that can impact the amount of alcohol an individual is able to consume. Some relevant factors include:
Our metabolism slows as we age, which means that it takes longer for our body to process and detoxify any excess toxins in our systems.
Larger individuals tend to have more muscle mass compared to smaller ones which end up causing them better equipped for handling alcohol products they consume than their skinnier counterparts
Men generally absorb ethanol more quickly when drinking than women do despite similar alcohol content due differences in stomach wall enzymes activated during digestion among others according medical researchers (note this source does require further follow-up research by expert health professionals).
How Long Should You Wait after Throwing Up?
With all these variables taken into account if you decide throwing up somehow isn't going to stop you from going out on the town again then at least consider how long should wait before having another drink.
The recommended step would be waiting 1 hour per unit or standard portion size consumed (once again discuss with experts like a proper physician) depending on your own personal speed for processing things so keep track of what works best!
Tips To Help Recover From A Hangover...
Although a hangover might seem unavoidable after too many rounds of drinks or shots, here are some helpful tips that will help get through this often-dreaded morning-after experience:
- Drink plenty of water before bed
- Stay hydrated throughout the day
- Try eating something small but nutritious upon waking up
- Avoid caffeine-heavy beverages like coffee since it enhances dehydration!
- Get enough rest...alcohol interferes with sleep patterns!
If you find yourself determined enough naturally wanting another beverage remember that consuming while already being sick from non-alcoholic food/drink intake never ends well; taking time away allows rehydration & recovery along with reduction of any symptoms from the previous time. Never push past your limits or ignore signs that demonstrate potential damage on ones system even if are having fun wanna keep going!
Skipping all this advice and pushing ahead with cheers after throwing up could result in a much worse outcome hangover along with health consequences down line so be careful proceed at own risk but don’t say we didn’t warn you!
Drink, responsibly my friends (because let’s face it, nobody wants to end up as the impaired partygoer who can't find their way home even post taking an Uber).
