I don't know but anymore, when I've had more than 1 drink, and especially when I get hammered (which is extremely rare anymore), I can't sleep worth a shit. I've all but quit drinking, except for the occasional 1 beer/day every so often.

I'm 20, and often go a week with about that much sleep, tc.

Ya get used to it, after a while. one full night of sleep - 10-12 hours after that seems to do the job, tho

Kinda strange, huh? If I have a couple of beers and call it quits, after a while I feel like I took sleeping pills. If I get hammered, I usually wake up at 5 am or so. Ahhh, the joys of aging.

I'm 46 and have always been and still am one of those people that really ony needs 4 hours of sleep and I wake on my own after 6.

I can't think of the last time I slept 8 hours or more and wasn't sick.

Alcohol doesn't seem to make a difference, though I drink far less now than I did 6-7 years ago.
Actually, I just can't drink as much in this deathly hot weather. My blood is too thick for Aridzona.

Why can I get plastered, go to sleep at 3, and wake up at 7?


According to popular lore, as beer is digested, it turns into a mild stimulant. Thus, you get the same effect as a cup of coffee a few hours after you drink it.

Ragnaroc, abouts how old is "aging"? Sometimes the 2 beers or less thing makes me just want to go to bed also. I hope "aging" isn't too old! I'm only 22, but sometimes feel like I'm 82. Check out the thread in this forum about streetbike pictures, VRod is posting the pic of my bike here shortly, and when you see it, you'll understand why I feel like I'm 80 sometimes.

I have a huge medical history when it comes to sleeping.

In high school I had a lot of problems with insomnia and I wouldn't take medication because it just messed me up worse in my opinion.

In my searches as to why (which I now no longer have a problem with), part of the thing with going to sleep drunk is that it messes with your REM cycles. Sometimes it's better to not get any REM cycles, and just rest your body physically while you sober up then you can be fine the next day.

However, when sober if you don't get your needed REM cycles sometimes it's hard to get up on time, or even brutal to get up and get around without some sort of stimulant.

It depends on what type of dreams you had, what your digestive system is doing, if you need to go to the bathroom, the way you sleep, the temperature that you're sleeping at, etc, etc....

Sleep and dreaming is still a mysterious field of science, there are constant studies being done on it and no two people are the same, and psychologists and other medical professionals are still trying to discover what the effects of sleep (or the lack thereof) are on the human mind, body, and soul.
