article imageStudy: Smoking while drinking worsens hangovers

By Owen Weldon     Dec 6, 2012 in World
According to a new study that was published in the Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs claims that smoking may make a hangover worse.
According to Business Insider, study researcher Damaris J. Rohsenow, of Brown University, said that people who smoke the day that they drink heavily are more likely to have a hangover and more likely to have more intense hangovers.
According to the Atlantic Journal-Constitution, experts on substance abuse, who were not affiliated with the study, pointed out that smoking and binge drinking alone and together can carry far worse consequences than just suffering from the symptoms of a hangover. Experts say that when a person smokes, then they are at an increase risk for cancers, stroke and heart disease. They also say that binge drinking can lead to addiction, car accidents, alcohol poisoning and unprotected sex.
According to CBS, 113 college students were surveyed and they were asked about their smoking and drinking habits as well as the hangovers that they experienced over an eight-week period. Researchers found out that students who drank heavily, those who smoked the same day had a higher chance of suffering from a hangover than those who did not smoke.
However, Rohsenow said that the effect is not a whopping effect.
