When you drink alcohol it can make you feel relaxed, more confident and happy to talk to people. It can also make it harder for you to think clearly, become clumsy and slower to complete tasks.
Drinking a lot can make you very drunk. You may feel like throwing up and you can end up wetting yourself. Some people get very angry and can’t stop themselves from lashing out and hurting themselves, their family and friends, or complete strangers.
After you’ve been drunk, you’ll normally get a hangover. This is when your head hurts, your stomach hurts, you feel thirsty and tired. Sometimes you can also feel very sad and unhappy.
