Is It Safe to Take Cialis and Drink Alcohol

CIALIS AND DRINKING:

The Effects of Drinking Alcohol on Your Body:

Alcohol affects your body in many ways. Some of these effects are immediate while others take longer to kick in. There are some things that will happen immediately when you drink alcohol. Other effects may not occur until later or even never come into play at all.

Let’s look at each of these issues one by one.

1) You Will Feel Drunker:

When you drink alcohol, it makes your blood alcohol level rise quickly. This means that you will feel drunker than usual. If you don’t have a tolerance for alcohol, then drinking too much could cause problems with driving or other activities where being sober might be safer. However, if you do have a tolerance for alcohol, then drinking too much could make your symptoms worse because your body is still processing the effects of the drug.

2) You May Not Be Able To Drive:

Drinking too much alcohol can affect your ability to drive. When you drink too much, your heart rate increases and breathing becomes shallow. These changes in behavior can result in dangerous situations such as getting into accidents or having car trouble. Driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol is very risky activity, so it is best to avoid doing either at all costs!

3) You May Not Remember What Happened:

Drinking enough alcohol can cause you to lose so much short-term memory that the next day you might not be able to remember what happened. If you routinely black out when you drink, this could be dangerous because you might not be aware of what you did while drunk.

4) You Might Get Sick:

Many people begin to have an upset stomach when they drink too much alcohol. This can cause nausea and vomiting which can be very uncomfortable and inconvenient. Drinking too much alcohol can also cause more serious illness such as liver problems or pancreatitis.

5) You Might Worsen Your Health:

Drinking large amounts of alcohol on a regular basis can worsen some pre-existing health conditions you have. For example, if you suffer from anxiety or depression, heavy drinking might make your symptoms worse. Alcohol can also cause irregular heartbeat, low blood pressure, and malnutrition. If you have a pre-existing condition such as diabetes, alcohol can make your blood sugar much harder to regulate.

6) You Will Probably Lose Your Appetite:

Drinking enough alcohol can definitely cause you to lose your appetite for quite some time. Depending on how much you drink, this loss of appetite can last anywhere from a few hours to several days.

7) You May Not Be Able To Get An Erection:

If you drink too much alcohol, this can cause a condition called retrograde ejaculation. This is a condition where your body fails to produce enough fluid so that you are unable to ejaculate. In other words, you may still be aroused and stimulated, but you won’t be able to climax during an erection.

8) You May Pass Out:

If you drink too much alcohol, you might pass out. The amount of time that you will be passed out depends on how much you drank and your size. For some people, a large amount of alcohol can cause them to only lose consciousness for a few minutes. Other times, a large amount of alcohol can cause a person to pass out for several hours.

9) You May Experience A Hangover:

If you drink enough alcohol, you will probably experience a hangover the next day. The type and severity of your hangover will depend on how much you drank, how often you drank, and how your body reacts to the alcohol. Common symptoms of a hangover include inflammation, dehydration, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, sensitivity to light and sound, loss of appetite, anxiety, irritability, impaired intellectual function, and fatigue.

You may have experienced some of these side effects while drinking in the past, but that does not mean that alcohol is bad for you. Many people drink alcohol on a regular basis and live long, happy lives. The key to responsible drinking is to know your limits and know your body. Everyone has a unique capacity for alcohol, so you should never feel ashamed to admit that you have had too much.

If you would like to know how much alcohol is safe for you to drink, a good rule of thumb is that if you are a healthy adult, there is no medical reason why you shouldn’t be allowed to drink one alcohol containing beverage per day. Of course, if you begin to experience some of the negative side effects of alcohol, you may want to cut back or rethink your consumption altogether.

Why Do You Drink Alcohol?

There are a lot of reasons why people drink, from killing parasites to curbing anxiety, but what are your reasons?

This is just for fun, please don’t find offense in my questions, and try to keep it light 🙂

Everyone has their own reason for drinking, whether it’s just because everyone else is or because it really helps when dealing with life. So let’s hear yours!
