Smoking may worsen a hangover 抽菸可能使宿醉更嚴重

Smoking may worsen a hangover after drinking heavily, a US study reports, although the reason why is unclear.

Researchers asked 113 US students to keep a diary for eight weeks, recording their drinking and smoking habits and any hangover symptoms.

When they drank heavily — around six cans of beer an hour — those who also smoked suffered a worse hangover. Addiction charities hope this study may motivate smokers to cut down over the festive season.

One of the paper’s authors, Damaris Rohsenow, from the Centre for Alcohol and Addiction Studies at Brown University said, “At the same number of drinks, people who smoke more that day are more likely to have a hangover and have more intense hangovers.”

根據一份美國研究報告,抽菸可能讓喝了很多酒之後的宿醉更嚴重,但原因不明。

研究人員要求一百一十三名美國學生寫日記八週,記錄他們的飲酒與抽菸習慣,以及有沒有宿醉症狀。

當他們喝下很多酒—約一小時喝六罐啤酒—那些也抽菸的人宿醉更嚴重。嗜癮慈善團體希望,這份研究能促使癮君子減少節慶季的飲酒量。

研究報告作者之一、布朗大學酒精與成癮研究中心的羅熙諾說:「同樣的飲酒量,當天抽菸抽較多的人,比較可能宿醉,嚴重宿醉的機率也較高。」
