Next Day Drinking Anxiety and Why it Hits


Is your day-after-drinking hangover usually accompanied by feelings of anxiety, if so you’re not alone.

According to a professor from Curtin University, Professor Nicole Lee, drinking disrupts the chemicals in your brain. When we drink we have a surge of dopamine which is the feel-good neurotransmitter. But the next day all our chemicals and hormones are out of balance.  Our dopamine is depleted which can make feelings of anxiety worse, that is why we can feel pretty emotional when recovering from a hangover.
