An Unexpected Gain

Here’s something I have no logical explanation for.

As you may have experienced yourself, when I hit 30, I started to notice I couldn’t drink as much as I could when I was a teenager. Or rather, I could, but boy, it hurt like crazy the next day.

So, I did some research, & figured out a strict anti-hangover regime – which in the interests of furthering the community, I will share with you now:

  1. As much water as you can possibly bear. No, more than that
  2. A good multivitamin (replaces vitamins C, B5, B6, B12 & trace minerals)
  3. Omega 3’s (to help your brain)
  4. 5-HTP (If it’s available, to offset the depressive effects)

Take all of this BEFORE you go to sleep, & optionally  again in the morning. This basically replaces everything that the alcohol strips out of your body. Oh, & if your stomach is upset, ginger tea or ginger beer will do the trick.

So here’s the really unexpected thing. I’ve noticed recently (last couple of months) that I can drink a LOT, go to sleep without doing ANY of the above, & wake up feeling aok.

I’ve tested this extensively, with many different types of alcohol. I really don’t know why this is the case. No hangover, no DTs, no dry mouth, no shakes, nothing.

All I can think is that it’s an unexpected gain from doing a metric ton of releasing. Oh, I’m also finding it super easy to find carparks, & lights always seem to go in my favour.. but that’s a whole other conversation.
