When I was young, I could drink and not really get a hangover.

Now when I drink, I'm practically out of commission the next day. And I'm not drinking a lot either. Anybody else feel like they had a high tolerance that changed to a lower tolerance? It's almost a feeling so bad that I find myself not wanting to drink period.

Yes, I think everyone in their middle twenties experiences this at some point. Check out this buzzfeed post which states some of the medical reasoning behind it.

Yep. For me, some alcoholic beverages work on me worse now than they did before. I dunno why. I haven't changed my diet or anything. But I'm starting to wonder if it's the brand. More expensive stuff doesn't mess me up as badly as the cheap stuff. I drank some really cheap wine months back and wanted to vomit after just a few glasses. When I get some good brands I can drink 3 liters in a few hours without vomiting.

Man, I hate articles with constant gifs between posts. For some reason they annoy for the lack of professionalism.

It started hitting me hard at 35. Like really hard. After a night of 10-12 beers and multiple shots of Jager, at this point the entire next day is destroyed. And I'm starting to have issues with high triglycerides related to alcohol/sugar. And weekends are rough because I drink until about 4am, get a few hours sleep then jump out of planes totally hungover.


So I'm going to have to stop at some point.

Default Getting Older...

...beats the alternative.

actually the older I get the more wine I can handle, but I am not sure about other booze as I rarely drink anything else. I will, on rare occasions have a bloody Mary or a martini but usually only 1. I will add, if I do have a hangover it is much worse than in years past. Age wise, I am pretty sure I am much older than anyone here, maybe twice as old as some. Now, it is about time to pour a glass of wine.

I noticed a slow increase in hangovers each year, then just recently I started feeling lousy after drinking more than 3 beers in a night. It's crazy, but I typically don't drink more than 3 anymore when I used to easily put away a 6 pack...and way more than that in my 20s.

I have had the same experience. I have pretty much stopped drinking Martinis and Bourbon altogether because they make me loopy but I have noticed that a 750 ml bottle of wine is apparently a 'single serving size' now and does not cause hangover.

For me, it's the ability to wake up in the morning. If I drank the night before, it's a real struggle. I'm like, what on earth is wrong with me!? Then a few moments later, oh yeah, I forgot I drank last night.
