Study: Smoking makes hangovers worse
(CNN) – Lighting up a cigarette after too many drinks could make your hangover a lot worse. That’s according to a new study form researchers at Brown University.
They followed the smoking and drinking habits of more than a hundred college students.
Researchers found if the students drank heavily and smoked during the same day,
they were more likely to have a hangover the next morning. And the symptoms were even worse if the students smoked that morning too.
How exactly tobacco affects hangovers isn’t fully clear. The study suggests nicotine interacts with receptors in the brain that can slow a person’s response to alcohol.
The study appears the Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs.
