So the biggest reason we don’t get blasted every night is the Hangover. If you could wake up refreshed and fine I’m sure we’d all drink more often and in larger quantities. Over the years we all come up with our routines to minimize the inevitable morning after. I’ve honed in on a pint of water for every pint of beer, two oranges, and a bowl of Rice Krispies. I think it helps for sure, but boy how sad is it? Do you think Lou Reed is worrying about the next morning when he goes out? I don’t think so. So many times I’ll just enjoy my beers, drink a pint of water before I go to bed, and handle the pain in the morning. Which of course explains why I don’t drink so much these days.
