Alcohol does not shift the circadian clock and so it will not help with jet lag. While some people use alcohol as a sleep aid, it's effectiveness reduces over time and eventually makes sleep worse. Alcohol reduces slow wave deep sleep, suppresses REM sleep, disrupts sleep continuity, and shortens overall sleep duration. There is not information available on the interaction between alcohol and melatonin. Alcohol is not recommended as part of the Timeshifter plan. If you have questions, please consult your physician.
