06 Oct Myth 2: Drinking Kills Brain Cells
If you like to party, a Debby Downer or Sad Sack Stephen probably told you before:
“Ummm – don’t you know alcohol kills your brain cells!?”
Be happy to know that those misguided souls don’t know what they’re talking about.
Join Alcovit as we bust up Myth #2: Drinking Kills Brain Cells.
The Myth: You’re Killing Your Brain Cells When You Drink
Why do people say that drinking kills brain cells? Probably because it can make you feel pretty out there – and when people think inhibited function, they think you’re hurting the brain.
While drinking may make you perceive people differently or lead you to say what’s on your mind, alcohol won’t kill your brain cells. That’s an urban legend.
When you’re hungover, it may feel like you killed a few brain cells the night before. But even when your head spins, the knowledge within isn’t going anywhere.
So what exactly happens to your brain when you drink?
The Science: Your Brain is Temporarily Impaired, but Your Mind is Fine
Drinking doesn’t kill your brain cells. When you drink your favorite cocktail or craft beer, you’re changing your brain chemistry. Let’s mix it up, neurons.
It’s not just because it’s “your song” that just came on. Things feel more awesome now because your brain released more endorphins and serotonin than usual. This is just the beginning of how your body reacts to consuming alcohol.
While drinking alcohol doesn’t kill brain cells, it’s not 100% safe. Binge drinking or drinking in excess can lead to real health concerns and severe long term side effects. Always drink responsibly – and don’t be afraid to get help if you need it.
