We love to hear that there are benefits to drinking. I know I’d take any reason to pour myself a glass of wine. Ironically, even if you don’t remember what you did the night you got super hammered, the drinking might be helping your long-term memory.
A study done by the University of Exeter showed that if you study just before drinking, there’s a better chance you’ll remember the information once you sober up. A group of people was given a bunch of new words to learn before drinking however much they wanted. The people who drank more remembered more of the words than the people who drank less.
So we should all just drink more, right?! Right.
