Subject: RE: BS: Hangover Cure
I've been blessed with the answer for many years. I have'nt experienced a hangover in years. I always remember the evening and good time we had.
Many years ago I dicovered I had a terrible alergic reaction to alcohol, I would drink and and forget most of what had happened and my brothers said I would get out of control. The next mornings is what I remembered the most, hugging the commode and and telling it how much I hated it, but it just would'nt let me go. It hung on to me like stink on a skunk. Do you think my wife would come to my aide and hold my head ? Oh no, you did this to yourself, fix it for yourself. We once did a party at my brothers house and began drinking and playing and singing music, someone thought we were so good they ran a tape recorder. I remember how good I thought we sounded. When I heard that tape played back (sober), I decided then and there that drinking and presenting music for human ears do not mix.
I was well into my mid thirties before I promised God and myself that hugging toilets, picking fights, memory losses due to excessive alcohol use would no longer be a part of my life. I still have drink, but keep a limit for myself. Sober is the key here, getting sloppy drunk just leads to hangovers and out of control.
I have to add that the best part about not drinking to much is you can drink, enjoy the evening and wake up the next morning feeling human and pissing into the toilet instead of it pissing on you.
If your idea of a good time is getting drunk, you need to find new horizons, like music, more music. But beware, to much Mudcat or music is yet another form of over indulgence. But a lot healthier and rewarding.
