Get extremely shakey after alcohol. watch

    I only have to have 2 or three glasses of wine, or a few vodka shots and I am shaking and feeling ill all night long. My teeth chatter. Anyone have the same thing? Is it something I should just 'push past' and maybe with age (i'm 18) it will stop?

    I get this, have since i was 16, am now 19.

    Has out me off drinking to be honest, and so if i do drink now its to enjoy the taste and only drink a couple, as soon as i feel the slightest bit tipsy i dnt drink anymore through fear of feeling ill and this happening (usually happens for hours too).

    My only suggeston is to either not drink much or just be prepared that this is gona happen when you do drink.

    I used to get it when I first started drinking more than a glass or two of wine in one go. I think its your body just not being used to having alcohol in your system (as after all alcohol is a poison), and thus when it is challenged with it, it has a more pronounced effect on your CNS, which leads to the shakes, similar in a way to what alcoholics and other chronic drug users have if they don't get their hit. My advice is to take it easy, dont force loads on yourself or you could end up in real trouble.
