Hangover

A hangover is the experience of various unpleasant physiological and psychological effects following the consumption of ethanol, as found in wine, beer and distilled spirits. Hangovers can last for several hours or for more than 24 hours. Typical symptoms of a hangover may include headache, drowsiness, concentration problems, dry mouth, dizziness, fatigue, gastrointestinal distress (e.g., vomiting), absence of hunger, depression, sweating, nausea, hyper-excitability and anxiety.

Alcohol suppresses ASH (anti-diuretic hormone). This hormone regulates the concentration of Heine, and how much you urinate. Because alcohol suppresses this hormone, your body is unable to adequately regulate the amount of output you have leading to frequent diluted urination (when you drink alcohol you urinate often and it begins to look more and more clear more you drink). This causes loss of water/dehydration helping to cause a hangover in the morning after a night of drinking. Alternate glasses of water with each drink to help lessen the impact
