THE HANGOVER, IS SO REAL

Me looking unimpressed at how unbelievably hungover I get 

I was going to share the designer of this dress with you…

But given the fact that my ta-tas were out the ENTIRE time, I 10/10 do not recommend

Holding up this damn dress

Uhg, getting old sucks the BIG ONE. 🍆

I literally get so hungover now, it’s not even funny.

All it takes is 4 – 5 drinks and I will be dead on the couch the next day. DED. 💀

What happened to the days of chugging the shittiest/cheapest booze I could find all night long in lethal quantities and waking up the next day and going for a light jog? Maybe a fitness class. Uhg, I was such an asshole and I didn’t even know it. 😒

My youth is gone. The days of savage hangovers are now upon us. FYI I am only 26 but when girl hits the town it makes me feel like I’m about 90.

Since I am getting more elderly by the minute, my nights on the town need to be much (MUCH) more carefully planned out.📝

Another thing is I have a pretty strict bedtime of 9 pm or so. I don’t set it but at that time I am PTFO whether I like it or not lol. 👵🏻

Over my years of experienced drinking (can I add this to my resume?) I have developed a careful blend of strategies to reduce the gravity of hangover I endure.

I cannot deal with being hungover. It’s a total waste of time, so gotta do what we can to avoid it. 

 

In honour of Friday 🍸 here are my top tips to avoid a hangover:

 

GO TO BED EARLY

Oh my god do not stay up til 4 am. You will look like a sack of balls, and you will feel like one too. You need time to rest, beauty sleep is EVERYTHING. I posted about this as one of my first ever blogs on Skinny Belle.

 

DONT DRINK SHITTY ALCOHOL

Get that Smirnoff AWAY from me!✋🏻The higher quality booze you are drinking, the better you will feel. So much more worth it to drink less of a higher quality alcohol. It tastes better, and ain’t nobody got time for the savage hangover that is sure to come from Polar Ice. 😷

 

STICK TO ONE TYPE

When I am yoloing everywhere and mixing and matching my drinks all night long I always end up with the worst stomach ache. 😩 So just decide… is tonight a tequila night? A vodka night? Pick your poison, and stick with it.

 

AVOID SUGAR LIKE THE PLAGUE

Okay we all love ordering festive cute drinks,🍹but you need to really consider how much sugar is in your order. Sugar is like the hangover devil. Avoid at all costs. 

 

EAT DINNER

Honestly, if you don’t know this one by now… stop reading my blog. We can’t be friends. Kidding, luvs u. ❤️ 💛 💚 💙 💜

 

WATER WATER WATER

Drink this, like it’s your job. You need it. All those margaritas you are tossing back are major dehydrating you, and you will wake up looking like a raisin. Not a good scene. I do the 1 for 1 rule.

 

 

Okay sooooooo let’s say you totally failed at all of the above, and wake up with a raging hangover delivered straight from satan. 

Here is some stuff you can do to minimize your pain and suffering:

 

DRINK ALKA-SELTZER

Or just something fizzy. It helps reduce the nausea just a little bit. Key word: little.

 

EMERGEN-C PACKETS

These work too. I just like the taste, not sure about how healthy they are, but they help get my lazy bum up and going when I have over indulged.

 

EXERCISE

Seriously, even if you are on the verge of chundering, get up, go throw yourself in a cold pool or ocean or ideally go skiing. 🎿🏄 No matter how horrid you feel, this is basically the only way I know to make me feel better. The other morning I woke up with a raging hangover for literally no reason, I had like 4 weak drinks the night before, and I was feeling hung AF. Got myself up, went surfing, worked like magic. It probably works because you cannot just lay there wallowing in your pain anymore.

 

GREASY FOOD

You need juuuuuust enough grease to absorb the alcohol in  your stomach. I like to cook turkey bacon (available at Whole Foods) because it is way healthier than normal bacon AND it tastes better, in my opinion.

or….

 

JUST DON’T DRINK!

HAHAHHAHAHAHHA. JK. That would be so wrong.

 

Those are my best tips for curing the senior hangoveritis… aka the hangover that should NOT exist. If you were to ask my college-self, I would never believe this was a thing. But, alas, here we are. I am 26 and apparently 4 drinks keeps me bed-ridden the entire next day. 

Comment with your strategies to avoid a hangover! I want to know what other super secret tips and tricks are out there.

Happy Fri-Yay friends! Have a great weekend 🍻

 

xoxo,

  1. Love this! I have a friend your age and he attest to this! Drink Pedialyte before the night is up, right after you stop drinking your alcoholic drink and no hangover. He swears by it.
