Recently I was sick – not with COVID thankfully – but my symptoms did include headaches, fatigue and low energy levels.
They were similar to the after effects of a night of drinking.
- Headaches from dehydration
- Fatigue from not sleeping well
- Low energy due to alcohol sapping my energy reserves
When we are sick with a cold virus or other illness, we take care of ourselves by resting, hydrating and eating well.
Yet when it comes to drinking we shrug off any ill effects and just accept them as being what happens when we drink.
One of the main reasons I started questioning my drinking was because I was sick and tired of feeling sick and tired.
And the older I got, the harder I was finding it harder to bounce back.
It didn’t even have to be a big night – even having a few drinks was playing havoc on my physical and mental wellbeing.
