You can only delay the process!.i!.e you delay the time it takes alcohol to reach your brain!.

This can be achieved by:

1!. Delaying the absorption of alcohol!.
( Drink a spoonful of butter/oil or eat oily snacks before the drink!. The oil will coat the lining in the stomach & delay the absorption process)

2!. Do not use aerated drinks as the mixer!. Mix the drink with fresh juice, water or just ice!.( Avoid beer because CO2 ensures that alcohol in the blood stream gets pumped faster to reach the brain)

3!. Reduce the percentage of alcohol in the blood!.
( Drink lots of water in between alternate pegs)

4!. All the above methods will only delay the process!. So the final tip is to drink in moderation when in public!.( limit yourself to a max of 3 shots of spirit if do not wish to embarrass yourself)


The flushing you experience while drinking is a result of blood vessels (most noticeably those in your face) enlarging!. You may notice that some types of alcohol will cause this phenomenon with greater frequency than others!. Drinking water may slightly reduce the effect through dilution, but the only surefire way to reduce the flushing is to reduce the rate of consumption!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

yeh go alcohol, water, alcohol, water etc!.

otherwise, check what you are drinking!. you might be allergic to something in beer or whatever you're drinking!?Www@FoodAQ@Com
