Everyone wants to get a good night’s sleep. It is too often something that is elusive, but now a new research study suggests that moderate alcohol consumption can disrupt sleep.
College students participated in the study and those who consumed relatively low doses of alcohol got less sleep. The students who drank high amounts of alcohol did not experience a reduction in sleep time, but did feel tired the next day.
According to Pierce Geoghegan of Trinity College in Dublin, the study’s findings add weight to the evidence that alcohol should not be used a crutch to induce sleep. Unfortunately, all too often people abuse alcohol in their unending quest to get a good night’s sleep.
