    Crampton's 16.

    Cricket with a slight hangover can go pretty dire. You think you're fine, then run to the boundary a couple of times and then you feel like you could hurl.

    A weekend with no sleep + Crazy amount of drinks and smokes + Blackjack = Not good. Been at least 10 hours since my last drink, and I hiccup when I'm about to burp, so I can't even let a good one rip.

    Ok, that didn't go too badly. Came in at number five against some gentle gentle medium pace, Hit 14, only two in boundaries. Cbf keeping, so I spent most of the time at short cover, where I was pretty average. Would say that's more down to lack of slepe than a hangover though.

    No urge to hurl which was nice, kept running and concentration to an absolute minimum.

    Tbh, water is probably what allowed me to be in a reasonable state this morning. Cheers for the tip, think you said it a while ago.

    Seriously, it's true. The vast majority of the after-effects of alcohol are caused by dehydration. Make sure you're well-hydrated before you go out drinking and have a pint of water in between every 3 pints or so, then have a couple more pints of water when you get home. Then the only after-effect you'll have to deal with is the fact that you sleep lighter, which can be easily rectified by sleeping for longer. Job done.

    Two points.....firstly, toilet trips, bad enough having to go 2/3 times during a night out. What you're talking about would mean about 5.

    As for the sleep thing, the lighter made up by longer, in my experience doesn't work. Tried it enough times.

    While up in Melbourne with my mate the other day (and being on the grog as we were), he arked up with "You know what causes hangovers right?"
    "Yeah, dehydration," I said.
    He took great pleasure in informing me that I was wrong, and that it is in fact over-hydration that causes hangovers. Now being a polite chap (for an Australian), I didn't say anything, but meekly insisted that I was right a number of times before giving up. I did point out, though, the inconsistency of the argument - how can a person who drinks 8 pints of beer and no water wake up with a hangover, while a bloke who drinks 12 pints and 2 litres of water wake up with nowt (but a queasy stomach, maybe)?

    Unfortunately, people can get extraordinarily attached to things they hear.
    'Copperfield,' said Mr. Micawber, 'farewell! Every happiness and prosperity! If, in the progress of revolving years, I could persuade myself that my blighted destiny had been a warning to you, I should feel that I had not occupied another man's place in existence altogether in vain.

    Well, TBH I've always had problems with hydration anyway, so I usually drink enough fluids to make sure I'm going to the toilet more regularly than that regardless. And besides, the point is that the pint of water you drink goes into your system, rather than straight out the other end, that's the whole point of the exercise.
