We went out on Friday evening. MrANTB is still feeling a tad under the weather this morning. Other than a bit tired (being drunk makes me an insomniac, it's horrible) I was ok on Saturday, but then I wasn't drinking stella, I was on gin which is almost purity.

I think its getting older and realising what a total waste of time it is to spend the whole of the next day unable to move from the sofa and trying to sip water and nibble dry toast without throwing up.

Age is definitely a factor. Never had a hangover until I hit 21. Well at the time it was a 'hangover', but compared to some I've had a few years later it didn't even register on the scale.

Last good drinking session I had was just over a year ago & I felt pretty rough for a few days. That definitely put me off drinking & have barely touched a drop since.

yeah, I've noticed the hangovers tend to last a lot sodding lomnger these days. the whole day goes to waste. It's sad and needless really.

Still feel rubbish today although I am now eating loads which is a good sign.

I am never drinking again etc etc.....

As Xine267 says - what a waste of time. I spend all my life struggling to juggle work, family and training and then bang - 24 hours of lying on the sofa moaning. Stupid, stupid, stupid

My brother had his first hangover when he was 31. He phoned me that night (no one was talking to him at home, his behaviour the night before had been so norty) to ask if he had a hangover or was he actually dying and should he take himself off to hospital?

Lol. How can you have your first hangover at 31. I was more like 13.

Anyway - my hangover has now officially gone Just ran 9.5 miles + weights + core. Feel much better.

The worst hangover I ever had was from illegally produced Potcheen in Galway- cripes, I spent the best part of 3 days alternately hanging on to my bed and hiding under it. I didn't stop puking for a week; every time I had a glass of water I was pissed again. I was 19 and never drank a drop of hard liquor for about 15 years after.

I think the worst in terms of pain was actually when I was 22 - drank 2 bottles of port - worst headache I have ever had. These days (decades later) they just last way too long - unless I can force myself to run (kill or cure scenario!). Glad you're recovered Mr Spoons - anyone for a drink?

I think I'll stay clear of the booze for a bit.

"hiding under the bed" - lol

Drink will do nothing for you but poison your insides, make you fat and slow you down.

I saw this and thought of this thread.... quite fascinating, though maybe nothing you didn't already know !

The Science Behind Hangovers

Being fitter has an effect on how you metabolise alcohol, i've always had hideous hangovers no matter what age, i do find that sticking to one drink helps although after ascot on saturday my sunday was also a washout!
