Almost never since I've learned to drink a better quality of distilled spirits, and not to chug them. Even when drinking a lot of wine in an evening, I pretty much never have a problem. Sometimes I end up with a slight headache if I consume a lot of bubbly.

Not hung much these days. Maybe once or twice a year usually the result of a tournament at the golf course that goes from beer during the tournament, to wine with dinner, to hard stuff after that with cigars by the fire pits. A little hangover the next day is worth it though as those are some good times.

Maybe you just feel miserable after having had to drink Pinot? Switch to something better and you may be OK.

My favorite post on this ancient thread tho, was from Spo:

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.


The reason you're OK the next day is because you took that nap.

But if you can drink a whole bottle at work, I hope your job isn't something that's dangerous.

Come to think of it, some memorable hangovers have come from attending WS offlines

The combination of a fatty cut of grilled red meat, a bottle of wine and a couple of scotch glasses to end the evening kills me.

No amount of red wine gives me a hangover, as I usually am good about keeping up with water and then a Gatorade at the end of the drinking session.

Mixing champagne and red wine = instant headache.

None. I have learned to pace myself and drink a lot of water after a lot of wine. The major cause of hangovers is dehydration, so take some of your favorite pain meds and drink a bottle of water before you go to bed.


When in doubt, open another bottle.

I aim for zero, but once in a while a situation gets the better of me.

Funny, it's close to zero for me. On the very rare occasion when I'm hurting the following morning it is usually in situations when I least deserve it.... Confused Not sure what's up with that; lack of hydration, possible food interaction or something else. Glad it's rare.

Very seldom, and agree when it does happen (like this past New Years Day) it's almost always due to lack of hydration through the event. That said, they take a LOT longer to recover from as the years pass so thankfully the answer is again, very seldom.

I definitely get hangovers about once a month. Like many others have suggested, I'm guessing that the lack of water is probably what really makes it bad.

I can count on one hand the number if hangovers I've had since college 12 years ago. Only one last year and that was after a long going away party/bar crawl down Division in Arlington (for you DFW folks). Too many different types of liquor combined with the rare cigarettes, but a great night nonetheless.
