Be careful drinking too much water. You can actually become very

ill if you do so.

ANSWER:

The old rumor, that if you are hungover, if you drink water it will

make you drunk again. This rumor is so false it ain't even funny.

It does not bring alcohol up and make you drunk. It actually

rehydrate your system and it does feel good. Not drunk, but a good

sensation.

My names Ashley. Once this happened to me. I was young, about

10.

I was bored one day so I took a wine glass out of my mothers

cabinet and filled it with water. I drank it very fast, refilled it

again and again until I couldn't hardly walk (why I did this I

still don't know). Anyways my stomach cramped horribly, I could

barley walk and my legs began to hurt. The strangest thing yet was

that in my head, I kinda felt drunk and loopy. It seemed that this

was a result of water intoxication, which affects the brain

functions. It's weird how over consumption of water is like a

poison. I was obviously experiencing it's symptoms like cramping,

muscle weakness, and difficulty of perceiving and interpreting

sensory information. What's so bad about water intoxication is that

it can result into brain damage, coma, or/and death.
