You know when you drink your face off and then wake up the next day only to have one chipper friend say, “I feel fine!” and then proceed to tell you that he never gets hangovers. “It’s soooooo weird,” he might say, as he takes a sip of O.J., which for some reason makes you queasy to witness.
Well, turns out that guys is full of shit, according to a new study. As the study’s lead author, Dr. Joris Vester from Utrect University in the Netherlands told the New York Daily News:
“In general, we found a pretty straight relationship; the more you drink, the more likely you are to get a hangover. … The majority of those who, in fact, reported never having a hangover tended to drink less, perhaps less than they themselves thought would lead to a hangover,”
So there you have it. The key to being a guy who avoids hangovers is to drink less, which is the same advice we received from our friend’s mom after we puked all over her garage when we were 17. That being said, there are some steps you can take to reduce the severity of the hangover. You’ll sill have a jackhammer chiseling inside of your cranium, but it can suck slightly less.
