Alcohol With Energy Drinks - Why It Should Never Be Mixed?

Alcohol With Energy Drinks - Why It Should Never Be Mixed?

Have you ever noticed bar and clubs promoting energy drinks? You may have also bought energy drinks and alcohol, and tried mixing them. But what you don't probably know is consuming energy drinks with alcohol can be much riskier than drinking only alcohol. Since, very few people drink alcohol neat, a small shot of alcohol is usually mixed with juices, colas or more recently energy drinks to make a cocktail.

While it is well-known fact that the sugar in these mixers is responsible for increasing the effect of alcohol on the body and weight gain associated with drinking, when energy drinks are mixed with alcohol, it can have an even more lethal effect on our bodies.

Studies show that this mix causes the brain to react in a similar way to how it behaves when in contact with cocaine. It can also cause permanent brain damage. This is because it stimulates the release of a protein cell known as FosB. This protein has the ability to permanently change the chemical connections inside the brain.

Some of the short-term effects of combining alcohol with energy drinks are:

  1. Digestive troubles
  2. Nausea
  3. Loss of appetite
  4. Depression
  5. Hallucinations
  6. Erratic sleep patterns
  7. Violent behavior

Many of these effects can be a result of alcohol consumption as well and hence, it may not be attributed to the energy drinks being used as mixers. Regular consumption of such cocktails can increase your body’s tolerance of this combination and make a person drink more. This can lead to long-term effects such as:

  1. Malnutrition
  2. Respiratory problems
  3. Tooth decay and abcesses
  4. Psychosis
  5. Liver damage
  6. Kidney troubles
  7. Heart palpitations

Consuming alcohol tends to make a person feel sleepy and tired. However, when this alcohol is mixed with energy drinks, the caffeine in the energy drinks keep the person feeling energized and masks the effect of alcohol. This leads to a condition known as being ‘wide-awake drunk’. In such a situation, the person begins to underestimate how much alcohol he or she is consuming. This creates a false sense of security and hampers with their judgement, balance and coordination. It also increases the risk of behaving erratically and getting into dangerous situations.

In addition to caffeine, energy drinks also have a high sugar content. A small can of energy drink can contain up to 30 grams of sugar. This is equivalent to about half the ideal amount of sugar one should consume in a day. The effect of consuming so much sugar is a fluctuation in blood sugar levels. If this fluctuation persists for a long time, it could lead to conditions such as diabetes and insulin resistance. Thus, along with understanding the ill effects of alcohol, it is also necessary to keep the effects of mixers in mind while concocting cocktails for your next weekend bash. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a General Physician.

It is natural to feel low and miss the person you have lost. However if it is interfering with your sleep, studies or general well being, or if you feel suicidal, you need to consult a psychiatrist. It is common to feel low, cry, feel like you are alone, or lose your self confidence. Usually time is the best healer. However if things are too difficult to handle you should talk to a psychiatrist or counselor. Confide in someone close to you, who will support you in this difficult time. Don't cut off from friends or family, even if you feel like you want to be alone.

As you are growing older and wingle you need some company and this is normal as you have maternal instinct going on. Consider that, You do breathing excercise/ getup earlyin the morning/ thing positive. Know that millions have turned their lives positive. And they have accepted their lives. Restructure your lifestyle and do some work. Reverse sleep rhythm and do some work or do night shifts. Keep your mind active. You have to light your own inner light /that is genius.

Actually what I read I used to forget it very soon. I even face problem in solving math. Day by day this problem is going on increasing. Is this because I was chewing tobacco from last 6 months or something else. I don't know what is happening with me.

Dear Lybrate user, At your age, Memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

It is possible to come out of OCD, if you cooperate. You need to mix the therapies ideally. Meet with a counselor first and then if that person recommends a psychiatrist to deal with this issue, do visit one as soon as possible. Please take your parents with you to determine the possible developmental issues that may have contributed to this condition. This is a fear-based condition and for some reason you have not been dealing with this childhood fear which has now developed unto these repetitive adaptations to seem to need it for normal functioning. The behavior will then become based on magical thinking and certain rituals will become necessary to do normal things making you believe that either the frequency or the ritual is important to its success. This of course is a fallacy but there will come a time that even if told the truth, your belief will defy any logic and you will continue behaving like that even if it cripples you in your daily routines. It only appears as though some other force is behind these behaviors and that you are compelled to act in this fashion. That is obviously not true but no one can convince you of anything different. The obsession is a repeating thought pattern with no meaningful outcome; and the compulsiveness is the need to act on those obsessions also in a repeated behavior pattern as though you just cannot help yourself. There are certain behavioral techniques to be implemented and if they work you may get out of this condition rather easily. If that does not work as desired, then medication has to be introduced, and in combination with counseling much work can be achieved.

I am not able to control my anger always. I try hard for it my sometimes I am not able to and I throw whatever I have in my hand. I have lost 2 mobile phones like this, immediately I release my mistake. I want to get rid of it completely. What I should do?

Most of the times anger stems from our thoughts in reaction to the events or situations that are happening. These thoughts are unknowingly hot thoughts that could be intentionally replaced by some cool thoughts to calm you down. This requires persistent and conscious effort to catch your angry thoughts well in advance before you act out. And realising it later would not be beneficial. Work on your communication skills and express your feelings calmly. Also, if nothing works, step out of that situation and place for the moment and get back once you have successfully calmed your self.

I am 25 years old. I am always emotionally hurt from loved ones. I'm still depressed. I've no friends. Now I've started losing memory, for example, important calls to make, important works to do. But my past memory is still fresh. I've lost interest in everything. I feel low always. I cannot concentrate on anything. Now I'm taking rexipra plus. Guide me through what should I do?

I am 25 years old. I am always emotionally hurt from loved ones. I'm still depressed. I've no friends. Now I've start...
Hie Bibek. I have always wondered about this question: What is it that makes me happy? Is it good times spent with friends? Is it performance at work? Is it self awareness? What is it? I created a simple mind map, and started splitting a few things randomly, then I structured them a little, and created a framework. Belief, performance, measurement, results, anticipation, anxiety, happiness Here is how things happen: You always have a rough belief system in your mind. Your beliefs can be weak, or strong. Sometimes very strong. You might believe in yourself, or in things told by others, or you might believe in someone else. Same way, you can have acquired skills, and you can split your skills as ~ what you can do, vs what you are expected to do. I am only giving you a framework. You can always choose to write down whatever you like on a paper just like this. The framework is, that everything in our lives can be split into three ways: What you think, believe, have, can get, etc. What others think, believe, have, can get about you or themselves. What the reality is or where it can go in time if efforts are put towards improvements. Also note, that everything affects everything else. For example, the more skills you have, the stronger your beliefs in something can be. The stronger your beliefs are, the more others might believe in you. The more others believe in you, the more they can help you out. The more they help you, the better your results can look and so on. Each and everything that affects one another can take a positive or a negative trend over time. When we put efforts onto something, you get some results. Again, everything is affected: [Beliefs, attitudes, results, skills, results…] everything! Here is what happiness is: Happiness is simply an inverse of a summation of all the deltas you can put together. Lets think about it with a few examples (they are made up, but I have felt and experienced them): When I did something great, I wasn’t expecting a prize, but my boss gave me one: I got happy! When I did something great, but no one thanked me. I felt tiredness and depression. When I believed in something that was true, but others didn’t it made me anxious. Then I put more efforts to show others what I believed in and why. They saw a clearer picture and got convinced - I got happy. When my boss asked me to do a task, and I could not do it the way he expected - he got angry, and I got depressed. When my boss asked me to train someone. I trained them exceeding expectations - they got happy, my boss got happy, so I got happy! This extends to personal life, not just professional life: I made a sandwich for my friend. He was not even expecting one. He got happy, so I got happy. My friend invited me to his party, but I got late. He got anxious, so I got anxious. I wasn’t anticipating my friends to visit, but they visited me during vacations - they got happy, I got happy. Now! What must you do? Put well defined efforts that reduce some delta somewhere: Usually the efforts would have to change something. The change could very well be within you. In fact, if you think deeply, the change is within you. It is in your thoughts, attitudes, beliefs, actions. Examples: Increase your skills so that you can achieve what you believe in and what others believe in. Put efforts towards extending gestures that others expect out of you. Make them feel good. Make them believe in you. Make a reality check constantly to figure out where you stand vs where others think you stand. Learn how to convince others so that they believe in you. Learn to lead others to a common cause. Help others reduce their deltas. They are happier - you are happier. Hope the best from others, but don’t make expectations. Give your best to others, and constantly try to exceed expectations. When you repeat such experiences too many times, you might know what you have to never be anxious, never stressed out, and always be happy. A very nice Ted talk talks about this in case some of the readers want to hear about it. I kind of borrowed the idea about Monalisa pictures from this talk. Stay blessed and stay inspired! We aren’t taught how to manage our emotions in life and we live our lives at the tail end of them. In order to be able to manage your state effectively, you will have to practice this. It’s like being in a building burning down and asking “how do I use the fire extinguisher? – the more experience you have with using the fire extinguisher before the fire, the better off you will be at using it if there is a fire. To get good at this, you will need to practice in your spare time before you’re in the moment. Initially while you are learning this, there will be times where it won’t make any sense, the worst thing you can do is to give up. 1. The ‘Do it Anyway’ approach to dealing with fear Surprisingly this is the most common advice to dealing with social anxiety, it’s also the most controversial in my opinion. For smaller tasks you do that have fear, this advice will work fine. For larger more ‘paralysing’ fear, this approach is pure hell to watch people go through. As adults we become slightly insensitive to the emotions and experiences that have happened to us in childhood. Most people pass them off as ‘no big deal’, but as adults we forget the complexity of emotions and how they can change the way a child sees the world. If you’ve ever seen a child get lost in the supermarket, it’s pure hell for them because children don’t know that they will get through it, and they don’t know how to see the situation from a larger perspective. The more I practise hypnosis, the more sensitive I become to how fragile people’s realities really are. When people think about walking over and talking to somebody and they become paralysed, they are dealing with a lifetime of experience that has proved that people are unpleasant to talk to. As adults we know this is not true, but our belief system says otherwise. I’ll give you an extreme example to show you why this method is ineffective. Post Traumatic Stress is an anxiety disorder that happens from a traumatic experience like a car crash, rape, or returning home from war. Most people who go through a traumatic event will display the same symptoms as somebody with PTSD, but will fade over time. Somebody with PTSD will constantly re-experience the detail throughout their day and will be plagued by anxiety. The soldier will keep playing the graphic details of bullets flying everywhere and seeing his friends dying. By telling somebody to ‘deal with it’ they are effectively telling the soldier to rerun through the battle, and watch it over and over again. This is why this method is painful to watch people go through. It’s like being forced to watch an intense horror movie over and over again in a cinema. I’ve used PTSD as an extreme example because it illustrates the point clearly. Social anxiety may not be as intense as PTSD but because people are replaying a life’s worth of unsuccessful interactions with people over and over again it’s easy to understand why people have so much fear about being social. This is why people using this method to deal with their fear are constantly struggling with motivational issues and create elaborate excuses about not doing the task. 2. Reframe the experience from anxiety to excitement There’s a lot of truth to this method, the only difference between a sensation and an emotion is that an emotion is a sensation with a thought attached to it, either good or bad. We make a decision and judge whether it’s good or bad, and this is influenced off our past experiences. In the movie Big Daddy, Adam Sandler has to baby sit his friend’s kid. There’s a scene where the kid is on a school excursion and he goes to the bathroom and he wets his pants. The kid is hiding in the bathroom worried about what will happen when he walks outside dreading the torment that will come from his peers. To help the boy, Adam’s character walks into the bathroom, splashes water on his pants and walks outside with him. They boy is empowered because he isn’t the only person any more. If we wet ourselves in public, it could be seen as embarrassing, or it could be seen as comedic moment that has brought a smile to a crowd of people. The emotions fear and excitement are indistinguishable, the only difference between anxiety and excitement is the way we look at it. It’s the same as pessimism vs optimism. This is a useful way of looking at the physical energy and the experiences in life and it’s a great way to add positive resources into negative events. When people experience an intense rush of physical energy in their body, they still need a way of burning it off. This will be the next article I’ll be writing about. 3. Mindfulness Mindfulness is a type of meditation that has been around for about 3000 years and extends from key Buddhist principles. Mindfulness has been covered in the media quite a bit, Olympians have used it to stay motivated, Steve Job was an active practitioner of mindfulness, Fortune 500 companies in the US have been developing their ownMindfulness programs because of the productivity increase. Mindful meditation has been described as the ‘sit and observe’ meditation, it involves paying attention to the sensations that are happening around you in a given moment, rather than being on autopilot. When people experience fear, they do an internal search in their body and check what the emotion is and they check each part of their body for the tension and the stiffness and that is what they pay attention to. There is an interesting phenomenon known as The Law of Attention. Whatever we focus our attention on will grow, and we tend to find things that we look for. If you’re riding a bike and you see a rock in front of you, you end up hitting it because that’s what your attention has zoned in on, and you forget about all the space around the rock where you can redirect the bike to. The same thing happens when people have fear, they forget about all the comfort in other areas of their body (like their feet), if you were to focus on that comfort as a guide and realise that the anxiety will end soon. For people who are not used to pushing through fear or anxiety, they get caught up “oh no, I have it again” and they let it paralyse them. When people are doing a task, they do a quick internal check inside their body and basically ask them self “what emotion do I have” and when they notice the fear, they freak out and that causes more fear. With mindfulness, you can notice the fear, and pay attention to a different sensation inside the body, or just observe the fear in your body. Mindfulness is also the most scientifically researched type of meditation. This is of interest to us because it has been shown to decrease the size of the amygdala, the part of the brain that switches on fear. As the amygdala shrinks, the GABA fibers that link to the pre frontal cortex become thicker and give you increased control of awareness and concentration and this is what teaches a you to be more focused on the present moment, rather than caught up in thoughts about the past or worries about the future This is where we start seeing real change, if you do mindfulness for 20 minutes a day, you will see dramatic improvements in your life, you will be happier, you will be able to think clearer and you will be more creative. Mindfulness is extremely useful for dealing with situations where you have fear. 4. Hypnosis Most people are sceptical about hypnosis – that’s not the case, here is the scientific proof that hypnosis works and actually changes the brain. There are two ways to go about achieving results with hypnosis, self hypnosis or seeing a hypnotherapist. Both will get you the same results, the only difference is that self hypnosis will take longer because you have to learn hypnosis, and you have to learn therapy or understand how to work with emotional issues like failure, guilt and anger and fear. Hypnosis is basically mindfulness on steroids and you will achieve results much faster than any other method. Hypnosis combines the attentional manoeuvres of mindfulness and the therapeutic aspects allow you to remove the pain and doubts from your past experiences. This means your perception of events changes from pain to pleasure, as motivation is automatically built into the process. People receive an emotional pay off from being social, studies have shown that people who socialise regularly are happier, studies have also shown that people who buy experiences are happier than people who buy things. The motivational pay off occurs by completing the task. If you go to a party, the reward is the fun times and stories you create, if it’s walking up to a stranger on the street, you might end up having a date with them. Hypnosis will allow you to cheat and create reference experiences where you don’t have any yet. There is a process called Deep Trance Identification, which is a specific mental rehearsal of a task or event that primes your mind for success as it allows you to create certainty in situations that are unexpected or dealing with ‘the worst situation possible’. Using Deep Trance Identification you can build the muscle memory that’s required to perform each task. When people talk about high performance states, they normally describe the process as ‘happening automatically’ or ‘happening without thinking’ – this is basically describing the process of trance, which is exactly what you do with hypnosis. When you enter a trance, your behaviour switches to automatic mode and you complete the task. A common example is when you’re out for dinner with friends, you’re able to create an engaging conversation between the two of you and you’re able to eat and manipulate cutlery without getting food all over yourself, and you don’t need to think about things you’re doing, it all just seems to flow naturally and easily. What to do next Everybody talks about the first step to success happening within the mind, but it’s actually the biggest thing people neglect when it comes to personal development, or do incorrectly. People mistake affirmations and quotes with beautiful scenery as the tools required for powerful changes in their life. Real success happens from creating resilience inside yourself, so that you can handle any situation. Resilience comes from working through the lies you tell yourself about your fears, about the power you perceive to be in other people and in your ability to make decisions for yourself. Thank You.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. You must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. If the task is boring, it is natural that that person will sleep or feel sleepy. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Take care.
