Alcohol is not an essential item for human consumption. It has only industrial uses. Alcohol, chemically is a great solvent an hence is used vastly in chemical industries. In this way it finds its uses in low quantum parentage in many medicines. It is also used as fuel in labs and clinics.

Even in small quantities alcohol is harmful for body. It is very rightly said that first you take alcohol, then alcohol takes you.

Hangover is because of presence of alcohol still in body. Each one has a tolerance level depending on his body weight, structure, age and health condition. When having hangover, taking water for dilution and disposal by sweat and urine is the best. One should take more rest to allow body to dispose the alcohol and repair the body. One should not starve, but take sufficient food that will not have high oil or spices in them. If vomiting comes it is better to allow it and not to prevent it forcefully.

The right thing is not to consume alcohol at all. Alcohol consumption can lead to addiction, which in turn can lead to physical, psychological and social issues and affect the social cost and social health o the country also.

Drinking alcohol is no a bad thing, it has some benefits to out body, but if you are aware about what can be happen by excessive drink? First of all I would like to mention about the disadvantages ( which mostly happen), due to excess drink people loose their brain, get high temper, suffer from diabetic and increase the blood pressure. Face accident on road due to illusion, memory loss, lots of physical problems like liver,kidney damage, heart stroke etc.
But if you can drink it properly like 1-2 peg on weekends then it is good for you.
It will reduce your heart problems, it increase smoothness and brings glow in your skin.
Now about hangover, normally after drinking alcohol, it get mixed with blood for which the oxygen supply to the brain get strucked. SO next morning just try to drink 2-3 Glass of either Normal water, lemon juice, or Glucose water. Which might not give instant relief, but by diluting your alcohol through this method and it will come out by your urine, stool and sweating. Also take a good shower to keep your brain and body cool.

Now how to take a proper drink for benefit.
Never ever take alcohol on empty stomach. Normally people choose Non veg and spicy food while drink, but this is not the proper way.
Always drink with very less spicy foods, Have some green salad first then order for your meal with drink, after 1-2 peg start eating your foods. Your drink should be properly diluted with sufficient water. Avoid using soda or cold drinks in your alcoholic drink. Take it with plain water.

N.B- But no body remember all these after taking 2 pegs, so please avoid drinking alcohol.

There are only disadvantages in taking alcohol. Actually by consuming alcohol there are only bad effects to our body.
Heavy drinking can lead to liver cancer, known as alcoholic hepatitis, and cirrhosis, or other liver disorders. It also increases blood pressure, can damage the heart muscle and plays a very important role in the development of several cancers, including breast, colon, mouth and liver. In addition, heavy drinking increases the risk for osteoporosis, particularly in young women, says University of Rochester Medical Center. Alcohol can disrupt sleep patterns and lead to weight gain, given that it serves up 7 calories per gram without offering any nutrients . Drinking can also cloud your judgement, paying the way for destructive decisions.
These are the disadvantages that I had read in one article recently.
There is no advantages or benefits of consuming alcohol.
I heard but don,t believe that slight quantity of alcohol is added in alophathy medicines, but there it is added in measured quantity for certain medicine.
But daily consuming it by purchasing from the shop is not good...
Hope if your edict to it, Please stop it, because your family will suffer than you.
