Drunk Driving Accidents

Alcohol And Energy Drinks

What If There Was a Way to Feel Intoxicated and Wide-Awake at the Same Time? Would You Do It?

It's a phenomenon sweeping through college campuses, and there are even websites dedicated to combinations such as "Vodka Red Bulls," "Red Bombs," and "Jager Bombs." With more than 250 energy drink brands currently sold and consumed in the United States, more and more young drinkers are catching on.

The Appeal

It is no surprise why the combination of caffeine and alcohol is so popular. Adding energy drinks allows a person to drink more alcohol without passing out and party longer. In addition, it reduced the depressant effects of alcohol, such as fatigue.It gives young drinkers the illusion that they are invincible.

The Dangers

However, what most people don't understand is that combining alcoholic beverages and energy drinks at the same time delays the perceived effects of alcohol, making people think they are not as affected by it as they really are. This causes them to endanger their bodies and engage in more risky behavior.

One of the biggest medical concerns occurs immediately after, when the caffeine wears off and the big dose of alcohol kicks in.

How Can it Lead to Accidents?

Those who decide to mix alcohol with stimulants have impaired judgment. They think they are less drunk because they are more awake. A Brazilian study found that drinking alcohol and Red Bull together significantly reduces the perception of headache, weakness, dry mouth and impairment of motor coordination.

The dangerous consequences happen when a person decides to drive or ride with a drunken driver, being injured, or needing medical assistance. These occurrences are twice as likely among young drinkers who mixed alcohol with energy drinks. According to statistics, roughly 2.8 million college students drive drunk every year, and many of them end up injured, killed, or hurting someone else.
