If you drink alcohol, do not take a hot bath or soak in a hot tub nor drinking alcohol in hot tub is a good idea. Both might get you killed.
Alcohol causes dehydration, meaning, you lose a lot water when under the influence of alcohol.
When you are in hot water, sweating dehydrates you, same as alcohol.
High body temperature
Alcohol expands your blood vessels, causing your body temperature to rise. This goes the same when you are in the hot tub.
Dehydration and high temperature will lead to heat exhaustion.
Signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion:
- headache (mainly due to dehydration)
All the above can lead to palpitations, coma or death (when one drowns in the tub or hits something should one fall because of dizziness or unconscious).
