Alright I have always wondered why some people get hangovers and others do not? I personally never get hungover from alcohol, even if i throw up 10 times in a night, the next day i am pretty much fine. Anyone know the reasoning behind this?? And no i do not drink any water before, during, or after drinking... Just alcohol. I am also small so its not my size(5'4 125 lbs), and i don't have much of a tolerance. Obviously this is a good thing, but i am just interested in why i don't get them.

well i find that if i throw up the during the night im drinking, i dont get hungover in the morning... but if i dont throw up, im more likely to feel hungover in the morning.

otherwise, maybe being hungover is correlated to your tolerance of alcohol, idk

1. Some people naturally have a hgiher tolerance for pain
2. Higher body mass = can process more alcohol
3. Perhaps they know enough to stay hydrated, because 99% of a hangover is dehydration
4. Maybe they weren't sucking down drinks at the same rate you were.

If I'm somewhere with access to free water (because I refuse to buy bottled shit), I usually drink a glass of water every few drinks.

It's all about keeping hydrated.

A couple glasses of water before you go to sleep, and another glass or two after you wake up will zap a hangover in under 1 hour.

Ways to tell if you are dehydrated:

1. Your urine is dark yellow and smells strong
2. Reduced elasticity of your skin
3. Eyes sunken in
4. Very little/foamy spit

For me I only get a hangover if I don't eat before I drink at all.
