Not really sure how to categorise this Q. My DH finally found a good job. He wants to come home early today. He had been drinking till the wee hours of the morning. When he left for work he was fine. I phoned after lunch and he sounded drunk! He works in the sun most of the day. Can the heat make you drunk again from the night before (his explanation) and then very sick? I told him to just stick it out. I suspect he took more alcohol with him to work. I don't want him to screw this job up. Does his excuse sound plausible? Would you nurse him (that means he comes home, can get into bed and I do everything)? Would you take a "serves you right" attitude and insist he does his bit?
The body metabolizes alcohol at a rate of 0.02/hr. There is little if anything that will speed up this process. Once the alcohol is metabolized, it can't "make you drunk again." My suspicion is that he either drank more throughout the day or is suffering from dehydration caused by a combination of too much alcohol last night and too much sun today.
