Alcohol/sleep

Posted by Poll on January 10, 2003 at 01:25:01:

Dear Dr. Stoll,
Lately, I cannot sleep more then 4-5 hours during the night after just one drink (wine / beer). My family doc keeps telling me that it is totally normal. Please, give me a second opinion. Thank you.

Alcohol can induce sleep initially then interupt sleep as it wares off. Maybe you becomming more sensative to it.

I can tell you my experience with alcohol.

It DOES make me sleepy, gives me a headache, and besides the initial "high" that I get, all of these after effects are not worth it. My sleep is sooooo light when I drink, that its like I drift in and out of a very restless sleep.

Just as my night out is getting started, I am ready for bed in a couple of hours, if I have anything to drink.

I win in all ways by not drinking. Get to be my "real" self, not an artificial "bliss", plus not endangering my health and lots more energy without the booze, and er, no wobbling around.lol Yea, I got my head on straight. :)
Nope, I have a much better time and a better sleep without THAT evil vice. lol

Hi, Poll.

Since you inserted the word "lately" I assume that this was not always so. If that is the case, in my opinion, you need a better doc. This means that something has changed and at least is not "normal" for YOU!

I see that you have 2 choices: Either avoid alcohol like the plague OR practice serious wellness to head off whatever is changing before it gets worse. Since this doc thinks this is "normal" he certainly would not be the one to figure this out.

Listen to Jon and Miss Bliss.

Let us know what you learn.

Walt
