There is such an old Russian fun – to drink

What do foreigners imagine when they find out that you are from Russia? The Soviet Union, tame bears walking along Red Square, the sounds of a balalaika, possibly heroes, and past military victories are heard in the district. Am I missing something? Well, of course, first of all, even before the balalaika and bears, vodka comes to everyone’s mind.

In general, in our country, alcoholism is elevated to the level of a national identity, and a person who has never suffered from the consequences of excessive libations is perceived rather as a kind of mythical character – interesting, of course, but unlikely.  

Everyone is poisoned with alcohol, so it’s not surprising that we have constantly tried to come up with ways to get rid of the consequences.

There are really a lot of these ways, so let’s take a closer look at them.

The first thing I want to say is about the need to cleanse the body of the poisons accumulated there. Simply put – you need to go to the toilet for a long time, and if you feel the urge to vomit – do not deny yourself anything, because this very waste contains a large amount of harmful substances that continue to be absorbed and cause additional harm.  

The next tip is to drink water. The fact is that we spend a lot of liquid to decompose alcohol into its components, the lack of which is expressed in terrible headaches. You won’t be able to get drunk for future use – excess moisture quickly leaves the body, so you need to drink a little, but constantly. It is even better if instead of water you use orange juice, mineral water or brine.

You can succumb to the trick of pharmacists and still go to the pharmacy, but here you need to be careful – all kinds of alkazeltzer , citramone or aspirin will not work for you, since the additional load on the liver will most likely cause the opposite effect. As an effective method, you can use the enterosorbent Polysorb , although there are some tricks here too – you need to use it first, at the very beginning of libations and once more at the end (for fixing, so to speak). The silicon dioxide that is part of the drug will not prevent intoxication, but it will perfectly help to cope with the decay products of ethanol, which, in fact, is what we are trying to achieve. 

If you do not suffer especially badly, you can do with physical activity at all, although it is important here not to bring yourself to complete exhaustion – an already weakened body may simply not be able to withstand it. By the way, doctors in this case also recommend sex or a breakfast rich in proteins, to speed up the metabolism, so to speak. But you should not indulge in caffeine in any case – the effect will be like from aspirin, so you will only feel worse.

I doubt that our nation, one day, will become the standard of sobriety, but we don’t owe anyone to be sick again, so let’s not let this matter take its course so that we will not have to regret anything!
