So you probably think that you can deal with the alcohol that you drank with the dinner by having a cup of coffee afterwards. Well, that is a nice idea. However, is it a good idea? What happens when you drink coffee after drinking alcohol?
The first question you need to ask yourself is: what do you want the coffee to do? Do you want it to help you sober up? Well, the fact is that caffeine will only trick your brain. So that you will think that you are less drunk than you actually are.
Which means that although you may feel more sober after drinking a cup of coffee, you are not. And perhaps this can trick you into wanting another round. Or perhaps wanting to drive your car! Well, in fact, you should perhaps just go home and sleep on it. Although, this can be a problem too, because the mixture of coffee and alcohol may ruin your sleep. So, basically, you go to bed hoping to wake up sober, but you actually wake up tired. And that is probably not something you want, is it?
