Know how it affects you
By Diana Kohnle
(HealthDay News) -- A glass of wine may initially help you drift off to sleep, but it's hardly a prescription for a quality night of rest.
Here's how alcohol can interfere with sleep, according to the National Sleep Foundation:

- Alcohol interferes with REM sleep, which could affect memory and concentration.
- Women are more likely than men to have poor sleep after drinking alcohol.
