[tps_title]Myth 7: Drinking coffee is a great way to sober up[/tps_title]
The only way to sober up is to let your body metabolize the alcohol. Obviously, this takes time, which is why people look for a quick fix. They think that since alcohol is a depressant and coffee is a stimulant, then these two should cancel each other out. Unless you’re willing to take Ipecac and have a doctor stick the hose down your throat, you need to wait. Drinking coffee only wakes you up. Now, you’re not just drunk but you’re wide awake and aware of the fact that you’ve had too much to drink. It doesn’t help the situation, does it?
