A hangover can be described as the various not-so-pleasant effects on the mind and the body that occur due to an abundant consumption of alcoholic drinks. It is caused by excessive alcohol drinking at one time, and is dependent on each person’s tolerance level for the same. It can be based on the height, weight, and the genetics of a person. There is no cure for hangover but there are a few simple home quickies that can help make you feel much better.
Generally, hangover symptoms last only about 24 hours. Mixing drinks can cause hangovers. The main cause of a hangover is dehydration and that can be minimized by drinking plenty of water. A headache is a symptom of dehydration and may be eased with pain relievers and by drinking too much of water.
“Also remember never to mix drinking and driving. The person (in a group) who is to drive should avoid drinking” warns Dr. Verinder Anand, Consultant, Internal Medicine, Moolchand Medcity, New Delhi
