The worst hangover you’ve ever had is like the first time you have sex: you never forget it. Thanks to a new survey, we’ve identified the culprit behind the worst hangovers ever: tequila.
The goal of the survey was to highlight the negative consequences of heavy drinking on both your wallet and your health — and there’s a lot of evidence to support the latter. We now know that drinking eight or more beers a week could ruin your memory in the long run, and even though drinking a little bit of booze every day won’t necessarily turn you into an alcoholic, if you find that you’re irritable and moody when you skip your nightly glass of wine (or two, or four), chances are you should be more mindful of your drinking habits.
So while it might occasionally be fun to rank liquors or share our blackout horror stories, we shouldn’t blame our worst hangovers on tequila or vodka or beer. At the end of the day, hangovers are a result of drinking too much, regardless of what type of alcohol we’re consuming — and no amount of barstool wisdom or Advil can circumvent the suffering.
