rate your hangover

Postby Minnie the Minx » 05 Aug 2019, 16:50

Today’s rating: 7/10.
Feel a bit sour. Headache now gone, but vague nausea persists. About to be ravenous. Will feel worse after eating. An improvement from 6am which was 8/10.

You?

I had a beer or two after I got home from Houston but that was it.

0/10 I had two pints of cider during a drum circle and a glass of vin rouge with dinner when I got home so nothing extreme. I hate hangovers and will do anything to avoid them including drinking less. I hope your situation improves soon and it will, just not as soon as you want.

I never learn.
Me and my pal shared the best part of three bottles of white on a dinner of black bean hummus and plantain chips. Then I cycled home and got into the Estonian liquor.

I had my first beer at the JU at 1230 on Saturday. We switched to shorts around 8 o'clock I'd guess. We left around 10ish... so about nine and a half hours.

I felt great yesterday morning - up around 8, home by train to Oxfordshire by 130.

What's a hangover? :?

Have you had a long hot shower yet? That always seemed to help when I was in this situation. It doesn't make a huge difference of course but any incremental improvement is welcome in my book.

No, but I’ve had a pint of lentil soup and looked at kittens going down slides on YouTube, which seems to have taken the edge off.

How are you feeling now Anna? Hopefully you are tucked into bed with sweet dreams.

She is but her dreams are never sweet!

She’ll tell you all about them tomorrow, no doubt.

I haven't had a hangover for over 25 years.

I had enough bad ones in my younger days to not want to go there again.

I am much more measured now. I tend not to drink before 6pm and keep an eye on the level of consumption [red wine these days]

Do I get a gold star...?

I used to get hangovers quite easily.

Since having 1st child (25 years ago) I stopped all that excessive drinking nonsense. She had dodgy breathing as a babe so I wanted to hear every noise in the house. Never got out of the habit, and almost never use headphones for same reason.

These days 4 pints on a Sunday evening is fine for me. Followed by a couple of pints of water and food and no problems.

But make me drink a 5th pint and it could be a different story.
