Quit Drinking and Sleep Better at Night
You might want to reconsider your nightcap—research shows that even a very small dose of alcohol can severely disrupt a person’s sleep cycle and lead to them feeling tired in the morning. One particular study found that a group of people given a small amount of alcohol slept much less than a group that had been given no alcohol at all. It’s well known that alcohol impacts human health in many ways, but this research on sleep cycles demonstrates that it can even cause direct harm to a person’s sleep.
There’s no telling how much alcohol abuse has cost the United States—whether in absenteeism at work or in school, fatigue at work causing lowered productivity, or the danger posed by tired people driving cars or operating machinery. With the single biggest cause of car accidents being human error, fatigue has almost certainly contributed to a great many avoidable collisions. Which is all to say nothing of the impacts on personal life that alcohol can have: decreased energy, strain on family and friend relationships, decreased sex drive, punishment or firing at work.
There is good news, however. If you have a problem with alcohol abuse or know someone who does, you can seek help now for yourself or your loved one. Thankfully, there is good help available. Detoxification and behavioral therapy have proven to be effective in treating alcohol dependence. Addicts are often unable to complete treatment on their own or with family members, so it’s very important to seek the right treatment center.
