How many hangovers per year?

This is wine related... Try to separate wine hangovers from everything else. For me - one or two real "I don't want to live" thumpers, but probably another 12 days when I'm not at my best.

I may be in serious pain one or two mornings a year. Inevitably, wine is not the culprit.

I have not had one of those thumpers like you were describing in years. Sometimes I can drink a whole bottle of wine and I will be okay the next day. I will get tired and require a nap shortly after getting home from work though. I stay away from hard liquor, especially shots.

I hardly ever drink hard liquor. I don't get hangovers from wine.


Just one more sip.

You know... now that I think about it, it's more like one every few years, usually after a long day in Napa and with more wine at dinner. All the other times, there's always a kick-off scotch or the cognac at midnight that factors in.

Still, a bottle in a night would put me mighty close - much more than that and I'm thumpin'.

I wouldn't call it a hangover as much as just feeling a little crummy the next morning. Once I get a cup of coffee and get going I'm ok. As long as I drink enough water while I'm drinking wine I'm fine

None unless I switch to the hard stuff after I've already started with wine.

I don't really have hangovers. I usually don't drink that much wine, and even when I do (i.e. Otis's cellar diminishment party), I don't have hangovers. Upset stomach and nausea, once every 3-4 months. It normally is the tannins in very young wines that irritate my G.I. tract.
Mind you, eating Cajun food (jumbalaya) before the CDP, might not have been the best decision I've taken in my life.. Confused Razz

Not to mention the White Castle sliders on the bus ride home. Hangover or not, you weren't looking to peachy the morning after the night before. Razz

Port after dinner is normally indicted in the wine hangover and given that it is mostly wine, I cite this as my leading cause of wine hangovers (that with the 2 bottle nights).

The other blind spot I have is the 1 or 2 martinis before dinner which inevitably you don't feel at the time but wonder why you feel so shockingly poor the next morning.

Of course, I'm in the industry, and am treated to dinners, tastings, and the like....probably one or two a month.

I rode to the airport with you the next day, pal - Cajun food had nothing to do with your condition.Razz Big Grin You were green and sweating profusely even with the air conditioning on full and the window open. Razz Big Grin DoktaP and I couldn't even look at you without breaking into hysterics. You were one hurting dude. Big Grin I admit, personally, my hangover in Chicago was in the top 20 of all time for me. Frown

Green eggs and ham, orange coffee, cucumber water, Carriedca's multiple trips to the can..... that breakfast had it all! Big Grin A true classic.

I think the reason I didn't feel so terrible was that I was still drunk from the night before. Roll Eyes Big Grin


I'm back....

I can feel my hangovers coming.
Then I drink water, water, water.

This is a bump I wish I didn't have to make. I've had headaches and cotton mouth from wine but not a true hide the sharp objects hangover in 11 years. I broke that streak on New Year's Day. I didn't think I did anything that outrageous but something caught up to me. The only bubbles I had was a single glass at the beginning of NYE. The rest was red wine with no liquor mixed in.
