Premature Hangover

Post by Miklo »

I have expirenced this a couple time, sometimes during the summer when i am just drinking beer, so ill leave that partially to dehydration. but yesterday afternoon i bought a flask sized bottle of cheap vodka to take back to work. i killed the bottle and had a nice buz going for a little more then an hour then it hit me like a bat to back of the head. this massive headache, this hangover, if you can call it that. it was misrable especially since i had to go get a crown from the dentist just an hour after that. terrible day. ever happen to anyone?

yeah, i think i know what you're talking about. i've always assumed it was either dehydration or a sign that i wasn't drinking fast enough. always just a headache, no other symptoms of a hangover. and drinking more fixes it. of course.

Happens to me when I drink early sometimes. That's why I'm not really into day drinking anymore. I save up all my thirst for the night time then drink hard until the wee hours of morning.

You just have to power drink through it.
When I drink during the day it happens if I slow right down or (shudder) stop drinking for a while.

I sort of know what you meant. At my most desperate times I drank the cheapest of the cheapest, and sometimes as I was drinking it occurred to me "this is going to hurt later on..." but of course that never stopped me. For me the pre-hangover was a rare experience, so if you have it often you should re-think everything and trust no one.

Yeah I get that sometimes. The only thing that helps is drinking through it. And as soon as the corner store opens this morning I'm going to pounds some beers for god's sake!

I offer my compliments on your constitution for getting your chiclets serviced whilst hungover. That is a feat.

That is the worst feeling at work:

8:30 "Hey I feel great! I must still be stewed! Better get somethin' to eat soon though."

11:30 "Whoa. Comin' down. This sucks. Stupid ass. This is not the first time this has happened. You tell yourself "Eat that damned bagel you got an hour ago already or it's the first car on the yak train for you, missy." Rapidly losing appetite, however.

12:30 Bagel still idling. Crap. Now I missed the hungry window. Now I'm hungry/nauseous. Shoulda gone to that saloon down the block an hour ago. "Conductor - I'll take a one way ticket for the Yak Express."

2:30 That done, the chastising begins: "If only I went to that saloon down the block to stave off this approaching misery hours ago, I don't even know if I could deal with it now. I can't friggin' believe I have two more hours to go in this gray and burgundy dungeon..."

4:18 Oh screw this, this is asinine already. Get the hell outta here.

4:52 At home fully supporting Wingmans's position - Happy hour! Problem + Vodka = Solution!

I get this sometimes if I do a Hair of the Dog, which happens pretty much anytime I don't have to work. I'm feeling good, chilling, then all of a sudden the world takes a shit on me. Only one cure...more pivo.

I'll pretty much echo the reasoning everyone else has. I get that awful headache when I daydrink if I slow it down. It's consistent and I believe I have some science happening here. Scenario for a premature hangover:

FUCK YES ENTIRE OBLIGATION FREE DAY OFF
Black coffee and bourbon, repeat till pot's empty.
Start cracking some beers.
Lunchtime, cooking and eating distracts from the drinking. I slow down.
(Between 12-4 I've gone from an average 2+ beers/hr to 1 beer/2hrs)
This is when the headache hits. Right here.

To solve that, belt some liquor, shotgun some beers, whatever, wake yourself up out of that malaise and get back to your schedule.

So these guys are getting hungover before they get drunk, instead of when they wake up? I don't get it. It's sort of like coming before her lips caress the sacred bottle if you know what I mean.

It's not a premature hangover. It's a reminder to drink.
