Diet Drinks & Intoxication…

Did you know that mixing alcohol with diet sodas raises your alcohol impairment? No matter the amount of alcohol, adding unsweetened drinks to your alcohol confuses your brain. The reason for this is because when drinking sweetened drinks, not diet, your brain recognizes that it needs to start digesting something therefore digesting the alcohol at the same time; whereas when drinking unsweetened drinks, your body does not recognize any intake and does not digest or work at all… therefore leading to higher intoxication and alcoholism.
