  1. Or, from booze writer Frank Rich:

    “Hangovers are extremely conditional and subjective. If you feel guilty about what you did last night, the hangover gathers strength, it tightens the vice. If you think you deserve a hangover, then by God, you’re going to get your wish.

    So, keep in mind: you didn’t throw all that money in a bonfire, you know. It went to support a vital industry. It helped bartenders, servers, and distillery, brewery, and winery workers pay their rent and feed their kids. They’re probably very nice people, maybe even nicer than you. What a swell fellow you are for helping them out!”

    Also, water & nutrients don’t hurt … ;)
