Gah....ugh!

So I spent yesterday laid up with my first hangover in nearly three years. I forgot how bloody miserable it can be. Don't know what happened as I didn't drink excessively on friday. What the hell happened to me? I used to be able to shake a hangover off in a few hours. Yesterday I was sick the entire day. And I still feel poorly this morning.

Uh, back to bed for awhile.

What you drank can be as much a factor as how much you drank. Cheap booze is filled with fusel oils and other garbase which will cause hang-overs. More expensive booze is expertly cared for, which will eliminate hangovers.

Also, smoking and dehydration can factor in and contribute to a hangover.

Indeed, the metabolism of alcohol and other goodies in the hooch we drink uses water.

I think ethanol into acetaldehyde into acetic acid and so on, it takes up water.

Which is why drinking methanol kills you by the way, it gets converted into formaldehyde, which instead of following the metabolic pathway of ethanol; kills you.

Which is why drinking while pregnant is bad, ethanol gets converted into formaldehyde by that thing the baby uses, placenta I think. Poor babies, can't get their drink on.

Anyway, drink a lot of water before you go to bed. What I do is place a few bottles in a spot I plan to pass out later.

If you feel bad the next day eat slightly burnt toast, elemental carbon really quenches a hangover.

Worse than a hangover: broken bones that require steel objects to be surgically attached to them.

And even worser would be that AND a hangover.

Hangover + jail cell + big ugly roomie + no pants?

Just guessing. Plus, we are coming up on flu season.
