Ranty Friday – hangovers

So at what point is it fair that the older you get the worse the hangovers become?

ranty friday hangover

As a teenager and early twenties I was a big binge drinker and smoker and my hangovers were bad but I could continue 5, 7 even 10 days on the trot with just a quick Bloody Mary (or actually in my case a full fat Coke) and then on with the drinking.  OK, I didn’t have anything to get up for (well apart from University and then work) in the mornings but it didn’t matter I just coped.

I gave up smoking when I was 26 and the hangovers disappeared totally, not a jot, never ever.  It was amazing.  I couldn’t believe that smoking could really make me hungover and not the alcohol.  So I was laughing, I sympathised with my friends when they were suffering but truthfully just thanked my lucky stars and patted myself on my back for having such an amazing constitution!

Then I hit 30 which also coincided with having children and it has become an absolute JOKE.  OK, so when I drink I drink a lot – I’m a big girl and can take my drink – but still…. it just isn’t fair to punish me in such a way, especially when I have to look after my children with their whining and crying and constant why, why, why, why??????  No that’s not fair they’re not that bad at all however when I’m hungover THEY ARE THAT BAD.

So my Ranty Friday post this Friday really is in desperation – why oh why are my hangovers so bad?

Thanks for reading

ps – please check out my twitter friends blog – Mummy Barrow  She is encouraging us all to let out a rant each Friday and posting it on her blog – letting out a bit of steam before the weekend comes.

  1. I can safely say I’ve never had a hangover – despite all the binge drinking I did at university. I expect I’ve got some really blinding ones coming in the future if karma keeps up, though…

  2. Ha ha, that’s all so true! My hangovers are bad enough that with the children I really struggle to get through the day, and even find myself feeling that horrid jet-lag feeling several days later… I don’t drink much any more; it just makes me want to sleep!

  3. It’s rubbish isn’t it…I’m only just starting to drink again after having my little boy…the other night had 2 and a half small glass of wine and the next morning I had a headache. I’m out tomorrow for my first girls night out in quite a while and dreading the head on Sunday!

  4. Nah it’s not the age it is just the children. When you have a hangover have you woken up naturally or have they woken you up? do you get to eat what you want etc?

    We had 4 hrs sleep on a hen weekend (Fri-Mon) in Spain and LOTS of alcohol (I was knocking back half pint glasses of neat vodka – which they must water down) and no hangover – but no children.
