Alcohol-induced sleep may start out relatively well, but the initial happy slumber is usually followed by lots of waking up, more dreams than usual, and a high proportion of nightmares. Headaches and dry mouth can be added to this list for frequent abusers. Some of these problems are caused by the rapid metabolism of alcohol, since your body starts to suffer withdrawal symptoms after the first few hours. In a nutshell, alcohol intensifies sleep disorders rather than helping to sort them out. There's even a clinical diagnosis called alcohol-induced sleeping disorder, which is applied to people who consistently use alcohol (even in very small amounts) to get to sleep. Don't join them!
