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.
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?
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!
just wish the sound wasn't so loud. Tossing in bed hmmm.
