How long before sleep should you stop drinking alcohol?

It is recommended to stop drinking alcohol for at least a few hours before going to bed. Alcohol can disrupt your sleep patterns and affect the quality of your rest. It can make you feel drowsy initially, but as it metabolizes in your body, it can lead to fragmented and restless sleep. Additionally, alcohol can increase the likelihood of snoring and sleep apnea, which further disrupts your sleep. Therefore, it is best to avoid consuming alcohol close to bedtime to ensure a more restful and rejuvenating sleep.

On the other hand, it is also advisable to limit your caffeine intake before sleep. Caffeine is a stimulant that can interfere with your ability to fall asleep and stay asleep. It can take several hours for the effects of caffeine to wear off, so it is recommended to avoid consuming caffeinated beverages like coffee, tea, or energy drinks at least four to six hours before bedtime. By doing so, you can give your body enough time to process and eliminate the caffeine, allowing you to have a better chance of falling asleep and experiencing a more restorative sleep throughout the night.
