Breaking the Seal When Drinking is a Myth
Even though a doctor with far more education and knowledge than I have is saying this, I still find it hard to believe.
The old saying of “breaking the seal,” which means once you take your first pee while drinking you will have to go every 10 minutes, is a complete myth. According to Dr. Courtenay Moore, a urologist in Ohio, you don’t unleash a constant barrage of urine. Drinking alcohol causes water in your body to be sent to your bladder. And if you’re drinking a lot, more and more water will continue to be sent to your bladder.
I suppose if your bladder was empty when you started drinking, it would take you a while before it was full enough that you had to empty it. So hold it as long as you want, it won’t matter. You’re still going to end up going to the bathroom 25 times an hour while drinking. Just go right away and get ahead of it maybe?
