Is it normal to stay a bit drunk for 24 hours after drinking?

If you had a great deal to drink you could certainly still be

legally drunk 24 hours later. I would not say it was normal though.

If you got really drunk, it's normal to feel "a bit drunk" up to 24

later. It's called a HANGOVER. Your head is fuzzy, you're

dehydrated, and your electolytes are probably off the scale.

Contrary to popular belief, black coffee, fresh air or a cold

shower doesn't help. Only TIME helps. During that time, don't drink

any alcohol, drink juices like Gatorade, and eat small, healthy

meals and take a multi-vitiman. THEN, be good to yourself and your

liver! BEST, ADR I've been drunk 24+ hours after drinking. If you

drink enough, it's possible. Not good or normal, though. After a

binge, even when blood alcohol has returned to zero, brain function

is still impaired- especially reflexes. this has been studied in

driving simulators.
