Preventing And Managing Hangovers Series
‘Tis the season to be merry…and for many, ’tis the season to overindulge.
As we enter the holiday months, parties, stress, days-off and the cheerful spirit of friends and family set the stage for tossing back more alcohol than you typically drink. Spiked eggnog, champagne and hot-buttered rum flow freely and the festivities often spill into the New Year. Eat, drink and be merry and there is high probability that cheerful times will be followed by that uncomfortable, head-piercing, gut-wrenching, “I’m-never-going-to-drink-again” conundrum… the holiday hangover.
