Myth: "Coffee & water will sober me up at the end of the night!"
BUSTED! The only thing that will sober you up is simply giving it time to get out of your system. Water will help with the hangover the next day though so grab a glass before bed.
Myth: "Students at university get drunk all of the time."
BUSTED! Whilst some students choose to get drunk on occasions, only 9% of students intentionally get drunk more than once a week and a further 25% choose to not drink at all.
Myth: "Cocaine & alcohol cancel each other out!"
