Sometimes ringing in the New Year a little too hard can leave you suffering from a hangover. You may experience symptoms such as fatigue, headache, nausea, shakiness, sensitivity to light or sound, thirst, and/or difficulty concentrating after a night of overindulgence.
Hangovers can be a minor irritation or a major inconvenience. Hangovers happen because alcohol leads to increased urination which causes dehydration. Alcohol also causes dilation of blood vessels and low blood sugar, leading to headache. Alcohol irritates the lining of the stomach, causing nausea and vomiting, which furthers dehydration.

CityDoc recommends avoiding a hangover altogether by moderating alcohol intake, eating a meal before consuming alcohol, avoid combining alcohol with medications or other drugs, and avoiding the darker alcohols – such as bourbon, brandy and red wine – which contain congeners, which include but are not limited to the tannins.
Please be aware that overindulgence in alcohol can be dangerous. If after consuming alcohol, you or a friend ever experience slow or shallow breathing (less than 8 breaths a minute), difficulty being aroused, shivering, seizures, profuse vomiting, or changes in skin color (pale, blue), then a life threatening reaction to alcohol may be occurring and emergency medical help should be sought.
