Why do we get hangovers?

Why do we get hangovers??? This is the worst feeling you could wake up to... You experience intense headaches, body weakness, and irritability. One night you're enjoying having drinks with your friends and then you end up regreting it in the morning if you had one too many.

Alcohol grows on you... The longer you're taking it in, the easier it becomes for you to drink it without even cracking a silly face when it's too strong. :) Our body can metabolize a certain amount of alcohol every hour. And this depends on the person's weight and condition. So basically, the technique is to consume your drink slowly. n_n

Ethanol, contained in our alcohol drinks have dehydrating effects in the body. It's a diuretic ( a drug that causes increase in urination and flushes fluids from the body). This leads you to get headaches and become exhausted. You can also experience hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) when you're drinking because the enzymes from your liver are too busy metabolizing the alcohol that it can't supply our tissues with the right amount of glucose. This is why we're always craving for something to eat whenever we're drinking.

There are a lot of ways to prevent this from happening to you. Like;

1. Don't finish your drink too fast.
2. Drink plenty of water before and while you're drinking.
3. Avoid smoking when drinking.
4. Don't get too cocky...
5. Eat a full meal before you party.

Going through a hangover feels as if the world is punishing you for having too much fun the night before... You waste a day just coping up with it. So, drink wisely and take things easy...
