You asked: Do you get less drunk if you drink water?

Does drinking water increase your drunk?

Alcohol suppresses a hormone in the brain

ADH signals the kidneys to keep them from making too much urine, thereby preventing you from using all of your hydration reserves. Drinking alcohol suppresses ADH production, so your body produces more urine than it normally would.

Why does alcohol turn your pee clear?

Alcohol is a diuretic

Doctors also call vasopressin anti-diuretic hormone (ADH). Typically, the brain signals the release of ADH in response to an increase in particles over fluids (plasma osmolality). The ADH signals your kidneys to hold on to water. By suppressing ADH, alcohol can make the kidneys release more water.
