"The myth about coffee´s sobering powers if particularly important to debunk because the co-use of caffeine and alcohol could actually lead to poor decisions with disastrous outcomes.
People who feel tired and intoxicated after consuming alcohol may be more likely to acknowledge that they are drunk.
Conversely, people who have consumed both alcohol and caffeine may feel awake and competent enough to handle potentially-harmful situations, such as driving while intoxicated or placing themselves in dangerous social situations." quote from the lead researcher Dr. Thomas Gould
There has been a thorough test with mice, that indicates coffee may make you feel that you are coming to your senses - but this is only an illusion, because in fact the consumption of coffee when drunk, makes it harder for people to realize that they are under the influence of alcohol.
"The bottom line is that, despite the appeal of being able to stay up all night and drink, all evidence points to serious risks associated with caffeine-alcohol combinations." quote from the lead researcher Dr. Thomas Gould
Be alert next time you consume coffee after a great party night, because it might trick you in believing that you are perfectly sober and ready for a road trip of other dimensions.
