I wonder if this happens with anyone else. I am going to guess that it is normal but I'm not sure. Everytime I drink alcohol the next day I am so hungry. I think its because my stomach is slightly nauseated and turns into hunger. I dont recall if it does that when I have just drank beer but I know last night when I drank a little bit of vodka I woke up today and have been ravenous with hunger all day. I didnt even have very much to drink last night. I wasent even buzzing.

I thought this was normal! Back when I was in school, when me and some friends go to a club or a bar to get wasted, we always end up on some 24-hour food joint afterwards before we sleep it off. I would get so hungry that I would want a heavy meal before I go home. And sometimes the hunger would continue the following day.

I feel like I wind up giving the same people the best responses all the time. Either they are the ones giving the best responses or I just get the same people who comment on my discussion all the time lol. The kids and I did have a nice time today. It was a half day at school because of parent teacher conferences. My daughter did her homework then played her playstation 2 and my son and I made cookies. After parent teacher conferences the kids and I played on the playground at the school and then come home and had dinner. My dad came over with my neice and nephew and took the kids for a ride on the mule (kind of like a 4-wheeler go cart type thing) and they played over at their house for about an hour. I gave them a bath gave them a bed time snack and we sat down to read when my father came over and read them another story before I tucked them in.

I have the same feelings with handing out BR's. One thing I'm glad about your situation is that you could be there for your kids all the time. And I'm sure that would help make them healthy and happy as they grow up.

i personally have never had that problem of hunger the next day after drinking. whether i drank heavily or lightly i have the same desire for food- no more and no less. what i do have after drinking at night and waking up the next day is being dehydrated. this happens to everyone. the best thing for dehydration is hydration. drink as much water as you want until your thirst is gone.

Yes I do get very thirsty but the worst problem is just the hunger. My sister commented one day about the same thing and I was like well maybe its a family thing then since no one else seemed to feel the same way after a night of drinking.

If I am not mistaken after drinking the body gets dehydrated, so it will crave lots of liquids. I am not sure if hunger occurs due to the drinking but I read your response down below and see you did not eat a good dinner before. So it is possible that you are extra hungry because of that and the dehydration. Next time maybe eat a little heavier meal. Have fun!

Thats probably a good idea. What happens is I eat breakfast and eat a big lunch then when dinner rolls around I'm not hungry. I dont get hungry again until about 9pm when I usually have a snack and go to bed around 10 or 11. But when someone comes over at 9 and we start drinking I dont get that snack and am up late where as I'm usually asleep at the times that my friends leave. Perhaps before I drink next time I will try to eat more and see if this helps.

Well um lol that is a very strange reaction. I have no idea why that would be. My sister stayed the night last night. She went out drinking with her friends then came back and slept here since I was babysitting her daughter. She said to me "I'm so hungry everytime I wake up after drinking I eat like crazy all day". I was like oh my gosh I seriously just wrote a discussion on that like last night! That was too ironic!
