Don't judge the guy in the pic: he's obviously just living his best life. In his dreams. Don't wake him. You probably can't wake him, anyway.

Not all alcohol is created equal. Some will kick your butt BAD when they start to wear off (i.e. when the hangover kicks in). Know before you throw...back another glass of wine.

(in numerical order of which alcohol sucks more tomorrow)

  1. Brandy
  2. Red Wine
  3. Bourbon
  4. Dark Rum
  5. Whiskey

The main culprit leaving you hungover (besides your inability to say no) is a byproduct of fermentation called a congener.

Darker booze like those listed above have more congeners, which are harder for your poor liver to break down, which leaves you vowing to never drink again (liar).

Apparently, the phrase "Beer before liquor, never sicker" has truth to it. If you hit the hard stuff earlier in the night before tapering off to beer later, your body is better able to keep up.

Booze to Lose the Hangover

If moderation isn't your thing, try drinking booze with fewer congeners in it; like vodka, beer, and white wine...but not the sparkling white wine. The bubbly carbon dioxide can leave you hurting.
