Life is full of pains and pleasures. Being hungover is one of the them.
Sipping cocktails can be an enjoyable experience. People drink to celebrate, socialize, or relax. I love indulging in sangrias, Hennessy mimosas, and other cocktails during a social occasion. It’s a soothing experience.
However, excess drinking can cause a hangover. And the hangover experience is no joke. You would feel nauseous, dehydrated, and dizzy. I’ve experienced many hangovers back in the day.
The first hangover I had was in high school. I was with a friend and we mixed 99 bananas with Coca Cola. Only 30 minutes later I found myself half naked rolling on top of someone’s car. The next day I could barely walk and talk.
