Can you get short term/long term damage to your brain after binge drinking only once?
I want to stress my concern about the effect the alcohol could have on me. It's been two weeks now, and ever since then I've been feeling hung over. I feel as if I'm in a dreamlike state, my vision has been blurred, I've been extremely tired and I don't think my concentration is functioning quite as well as before. I am scared if these symptoms do not go away, and I stay feeling this way forever. Is there a possibility that it is only short term, and it will go away after a few months or so? Could I really have damaged many brain cells with only binge drinking once? I'm starting year 11 this year, and I really just want to get back to my normal self because study will get hard for me.
I'm 16 years old and have definitely learned from this. I am not going to touch alcohol ever again. In a way it's good that I did it now, rather than later, as I would've done it anyway at some point in my life to try it and it could've turned out a lot worse, I guess. :(
I've started taking fish oil and ginkgo biloba tablets to improve memory/concentration, as well enihacea.
I appreciate all help and comments!
