Hangovers don’t stop us from drinking. Yep, a new study has found that hangovers have a very minimal impact on deciding whether or not to continue drinking. Another false rumor is that many people drink when they have a hangover to try to get rid of it – the “hair of the dog” theory. People don’t actually do this either. So what’s the lesson here? If you know a problem drinker, pointing out their hangovers isn’t going to make them stop imbibing. Also, when you have a hangover, drink water.
