    Two adult friends of mine, in their fifties actually, had to blow off going to a game on Sunday due to having hangovers from a party the night before. It was sort of an accidental reunion so there were stories going back thirty years, great time, lots ( and lots) of drinking, apparently good Scotch was the culprit.

    It was a good night for Uber.

    Oddly enough my top three are beer and not hard liquor related. Two ridiculously bad ones were multiple Sierra Nevada Bigfoot Ales @ 9% plus. One morning was followed by an early morning favor to help a buddy move, brutal...the other morning was spent hiding from the mid August heat and humidity , and pulsing temples, in the conservatory at the Smithsonian. Those misters in the rain forest area saved my bacon.

    The worst however was a party years ago at my place.....big party with a couple kegs of good ale. As the party started to wind down another couple joined us and hit the hot tub, we were jumping in and out to get more beer. The fateful move was skidding the keg across the deck so no one had to get out.

    We put the keg hose next to the tub and just filled our beers over and over and over......until sunrise. We must have looked like naked vampires scattering when the sun came up. I actually remember, surprisingly, someone asking what happened to the stars ?


    Somehow during the night someone had found one of those Costco size tins of Swedish butter cookies and the deck was covered in soggy cookie bits in about a three foot radius outside, the hot tub was full of globules of liquid cookie remants. It was more than disgusting.

    We weren't really totally hammered, just pretty drunk for a long ass time. The lack of sleep, duration of drinking.....probably a solid eight hours, and zero hydration yielded an activity cancelling couch locked two day hangover. I think that may have been my introduction to Gatorade.

    I don't recall any extreme hangovers, but I have had a couple of episodes of getting sick at the end of drinking. I'm ok with beer and hard liquor but wine beats me up.

    One night we were drinking wine and I decided I needed some fresh air. So I went out on our sidewalk and sat in one of those plastic chairs that kinda wrap around you. When I sat back in it the back legs slid off the sidewalk and in the soft ground in the flower bed. I went over backwards. Since the chair had sides I couldn't get out. Felt like an overturned turtle.

    Worst hangover ever was the morning after drinking two forties of OE then hitting the bars and having several rumplemintz shots...

    For some reason though I feel my tolerance for hangovers is much higher when in Vegas... must be that oxygenated air.

    Since I found the pedialyte remedy, I rarely get hangovers anymore....I also don't drink OE.

    One of the worst hangovers I've ever had was the result of a impromptu weekend in San Diego. A buddy of mine was going to school there, so I dropped by one Saturday with a case of beer and a couple of bottles of Barbera as a "host gift." Turns out one of his sailing students had given him a case of Corona that morning as a tip, so we were set. As near as we could reconstruct, we killed the case of Corona, grilled steaks, finished off both bottles of wine and made serious inroads into the case of beer I brought.

    The next morning was...interesting. We spent all morning zipping back and forth across Mission Bay on a 16' Hobiecat, with me in the trapeze. Every time I'd puke Tom would just drop the hull back into the water, dragging me along and rinsing me off, then pull in the sheets and bring us back up to speed. Got rid of the hangover!

    One of my "short-comings" is that I don't know how to have a couple drinks and have a good time. I attend many, many functions and chose not to drink and I'm fine with it. For the most part, when I do decide to drink, my intent is to have many and depending on who I'm with and what the situation is, things can very deep into the evening. I'll do this 2-4 times a year, as I've also learned that hangovers aren't a 1 day deal for me anymore and I just hate burning a couple days to recoup from a night of stupidity.. I drink Jack Daniels ( Makers Mark if in Kentucky) and Coke and I've heard the darker the liquor and the darker the booze, the more your head is gonna hurt. I'm also a good-sized guy and can put them away and not get sloppy drunk... that doesn't, however, protect my head.

    So if you're ever around me and you see me go past a 3rd drink... hang close, cause we'll have a helluva time and I'll likely buy all the drinks from there on out...but don't call me the next morning, cause I'll have the cell phone off and will nursing a nice ham & cheese omelet from room service!

    One of my worst hangovers ever was a result of too much partying in Las Vegas. Instead of getting some sleep on my last night, I decided to really hit the drinking hard. Bad decision. The actual drinking started with beer and finished up with vodka/red bulls. ( had to stay awake somehow) IT would be difficult to give an accurate accounting of all the stuff I drank but it was definitely done in huge quantities. Anyway, I was throwing up all morning as we got ready for our 10 AM flight. I even threw up in the taxi on the way to the airport. (luckily my RN girlfriend had anticipated that and brought a barf bag with us) Thank goodness for her being there and taking care of me. She got me expedited thru security by pointing out that I was mighty sick and then talked the guy with the window seat into letting me switch with him so I could hopefully sleep. Even though I was throwing up profusely, my headache was even worse. Once we got to Dallas and had about a two hour layover until our last leg, she got me to just stretch out on the floor behind a row of chairs and put her raincoat over me for cover. That nap revived me enough that I could actually stumble onto our plane and try to endure those last two airborne hours. We still had an hour drive home from the airport but she drove and I stretched out in the back seat for yet another nap. This was one trip where having a medically trained professional looking after me was a true blessing. Without her, I would have never gotten home in one piece.

    First hangover
    Mixed drink party when I was in college. Everybody brought ingredients for their favorite mixed drink. It was held by my next door neighbors at the apartment complex I lived in. I woke up in the middle of the night thinking I was in their apartment. I had to go to the bathroom. I went next door to what I thought was my place, but the door was locked. I went to the bathroom over the second floor balcony hallway of our apartments into some bushes below. I went back to their door, and it was locked. I then tried my door, and it was where I always was. The next morning was so brutal I slept on the bathroom floor.

    Second hangover
    I got interested in Scotch at Mandalay Bay. Usually two will get me completely buzzed. I don't know how many I had. My wing man escorted me back to NYNY, but I was so drunk, I don't know where my room was. My friend said it took an hour to find my room. I woke up the next morning with a dry mouth and the worst feeling. I didn't have any water so I drank from the bathroom sink. I had to checkout and go to Paris for my next night's stay. I walked with my suitcase in the heat feeling absolutely horrible.

    Third hangover
    I went with friends to all four Palms lounges and clubs (Ghost Bar, Playboy Club, Rain, and Moon) and tried to hang with them on drinking. The next thing I remembered was that I looked up and saw someone entering his room down the hall. I was laying on my stomach right outside my room door at Bally's not knowing how I got there. I went inside and stayed there on my bed all morning and afternoon trying not to throw up as I didn't want to go to the bathroom.

    The last hangover happened a while ago, and hopefully I am now smart enough to know that drinking that much is a waste of time on what is supposed to be an enjoyable vacation.

    21st birthday, Subic Bay, Philippine Islands, during my Navy days. A six pack of Heineken, a couple of helpings of "Mojo" and 21 shots of Jack Daniels. Absolutely brutally sick for two days after. That was the first of many times that I swore I'd never drink again.......

    Many years ago after drinking way to much 151 proof rum I was lying behind a couch and needed a drink of water bad. I couldn't get up so I just said water and stuck my hand up and my friend put a glass in it and I had a drink. He gave me milk. Not only did it not mix with the rum but I didn't recover for a few days.

    I was in high-school... drank 10-12 Colt 45 Malt Liquors... passed out and woke up with my head in a urinal... had a urinal cake in my mouth... sick for three days after that!

    Not sure if it was the Colt 45 or urinal cakes?

    Still cannot stand the smell of Colt 45 after all these years later... urinal cakes don't bother me though?

    Min was last Oct, in Vegas for the Scorpions concert at Hardrock. Hubby and I had few at the venue, nothing to hard, I had few redbull vodkas and was feeling great. Left the concert and headed to the Cosmo to play slots and that's where things get fuzzy. I remember Redbull vodkas, fireball shots, patron shots and a drunken walk to secret pizza and more redbull vodkas before we headed back to Planet Hollywood. Thank my hubby was not as drunk, otherwise we wouldn't have made it to our room. Woke up with my heart beating out of my chest, nauseous and dehydrated! I honesty thought I was going to die lol. Couldn't sleep and tylenol did not help. Finally went out for a bite but I couldn't even eat! The rest off the day was crap for me as I tried to recover. Never again I say!!

    LOL, interesting thread. :)

    Since I turned 50 or so, I seldom get hangovers anymore, really, no {s-word}! If I have a lot to drink I usually just wake up more tired and blaaaaahhh than I usually do. Last time I remember really getting really wasted in LV was a couple of years ago at the Chandelier Bar. I honestly did not remember getting back to the hotel room, but I must have, since that's where I woke up. I felt dead tired but not hung over.

    Now as for the worst I can remember, probably any of several Fridays in college when the drink du jour was something like "Suicide Punch" (about anything boozy and fizzy mixed in a trash can), "Purple Jesus Punch" (Welch's Grape Juice, Everclear, and 7-Up mixed in a trash can) or Singapore Sling (gin, sloe gin, cherry brandy, and variations, collins mix or Squirt, again in a trash can) and any of those would produce an air-hammer headache which required aspirin companies to submit bids!

    One particularly bad one I remember was after an evening consoling a girlfriend who had just broken up over several bottles of Ripple, which cost 69 cents IIRC. That one had me swear off wine! (Which did not last.) :)

    I do remember my first real hangover like it was Yesterday. Senior year of HS, just after turning 18. We were fortunate (???) to be able to legally drink at 18 back then and we did take advantage of it. One Friday a bunch of us were barhopping and I was drinking about anything, mixing beer and mixed drinks. (UGH!) We ended up in a bar in Jackson Heights (Budd's, if anyone else remembers) and all of us had enough to pollute the East River! One of the guys with us was asked to leave for getting rowdy so we all left. I got sick on the subway riding home and woke up with the room spinning and the head pounding. I phoned in sick to work, something I NEVER did since I needed the $$$$$.

    At Vegas Club maybe in 2007. I'm a man. I was staying in the Vegas Club. In the middle of the night I woke up having to pee. I sleep shirtless and in short pants. I walked out of my front door thinking I was going to the bathroom, WTF, I just locked myself out of my room without my room key. I had to present myself at the front desk, shirtless and in short pants having to answer a battery of questions in order to get another room key. Most embarrassing moment of my life. Although I didn't have a hang over the next day my ego was shot down in flames (lol). On the bright side at least I had short pants on (lol).

    1981, Fort Ord California.

    Me, my good friend Jim and another amigo Bill spent Friday night smokin' and drinkin'. A lot. As the sun began to rise on the Monterey Peninsula, we headed back to Ord. The parking lot we used was about two blocks up from the barracks. Half way to the barracks was the mess hall. A fine structure, with ceiling to floor glass windows which afforded a nice view of yet another block of barracks. It became painfully obvious that I was not going to make it back to the barracks before having to purge my system of the vile contents sloshing about inside. I placed each of my hands, above my shoulders, against the cool glass (cop-frisking style) and just leaned towards the window. Once the switch has been thrown, there is no retraction. I proceeded to heave right there...splashing up against the windows of the mess hall...treating all those thank-you-for-your-cerveza troops having breakfast to an exhausting inventory of everything I had had on Friday night. I spent the next week, after hours, cleaning the orderly room and the captain's office.

    The most high-risk hangover ever was in high school (that's right, kids...another woeful tale of underage drinking). After Saturday night, having to be a part of the youth group pancake breakfast for the church. Extra butter? Aaaarrrgghh! That had to be the worst hangover in my life.

    Interestingly, I can't recall the last time I was drunk. I might sip a cocktail or two ever so often but that's it. The days of impairment and paying the price the next day are long gone. How odd.

    Worst Hangover in Vegas, 1992. Got in late on Friday and hammered a six pack at the craps table at Excalibur and then we went out. Drank more at the Dunes (remember that place?), and a few other places I cannot remember. Somehow managed to play 7 card stud and won a hand with four tens over four nines (three of the tens were concealed), hitting the fourth ten on the river. So hammered I had no idea what anyone else was playing, and NO BAD BEAT jackpot then.

    Woke the next day and was throwing up all morning. Went to Caesars with my dad and brother and fell asleep in the sports book, woke up again and had to find a bathroom STAT!!! Got back to the Excalibur and slept it off, but it wasn't until after dinner on Saturday that I finally got right.

    Never again!
