Last Night - December 7th 2009, 01:14 AM

Last night I went to a party and got completely wasted. However, I remember pretty much everything that happened. When I arrived back to my dorm I drank lots of water and went to bed.
This morning when I woke up I had no hangover what so ever. The only pain I felt was the cramps from my period. Is this normal?? I am counting my lucky stars!!!
Please help!

Even if you get completely wasted, it doesn't mean you're going to have a hangover. Some people can go to bed and wake up feeling just fine...everyone is different. I normally don't have a hangover besides a little headache. Also since you drank water that helps decrease your hangover in the morning.
Don't worry about it...just be glad you didn't have to deal with being hungover

I don't understand what you're asking for help with.
If it's the hangover thing then what Tor said is right. Not everybody gets hungover, I know when I used to drink I never got hangovers. The fact that you drank water probably helped a bit too.

I'm not entirely sure on the science of this, but I think it goes something like this... Alcohol make you dehydrated, a lot! And it causes the size of cells, Ie your brain, and the likes to shrink? Or something along those lines... By drinking lots of water you're rehydrating yourself and therefore the hangover won't be as strong at any rate. But it all varies from person to person. Another way to help is to sober up before you sleep! By doing that obviously you get a chance to rehydrate yourself before you sleep dehydrated .

Thats coming from a friend who taught me the complete scientific effects of drink and drugs over a set of drunken nights :L...

However it all depends, I went out got very drunk, came home drank 2 or 3 pints of water but still woke up feeling horrible. If you don't want a hangover, don't drink , because I guarantee you it won't work every time!

Just to back it up;

Dehydration: Alcohol is a diuretic. This means it encourages the body to lose more water than it takes on by halting the production of the body's anti-diuretic hormone. This means you feel the need to pee excessively, thus speeding up the loss of fluid from the body that leads to dehydration.

How can one love themselves, when they love absolutely nothing?
Do something that is interesting. If it is not interesting, find out why it is not interesting.

this is a pretty decent description of what happens.

rehydrating yourself prevents the headaches

You may just be one of the lucky ones (like myself) who don't seem to get hangovers

it's the beauty of confession
