Definition - What does Hangover mean?

A hangover is a collection of symptoms a person may experience after binging on alcohol. The wide range of symptoms includes a person feeling dizzy, anxious, thirsty, confused, and overall sick and unable to function at normal full capacity. Hangover symptoms vary from person to person and the type of alcoholic drinks consumed. While the effects of a hangover usually fade over the course of 24 hours, the best way to contain it is to control the amount of drinking partaken.

WineFrog explains Hangover

Hangovers affect 77 percent of people who consume alcoholic products, however, in most cases it is absolutely avoidable. Dehydration has a big role to play in whether or not you have a hangover and how bad it is. It is scientifically proven that drinking as much water as alcohol consumed could ensure that you don’t wake up with a headache the morning following a night out.

In terms of wine, the type of wine also makes a slight difference in the severity of your hangover. Red wines are believed to have a worse effect on hangover induced headaches than white wines, and cheaper wines with a higher measure of congeners leave you with a bigger hangover headache the next morning.

  • Dehydration
  • Excessive Thirst
