About This Gig

Last night? Amazing! Today: A world of hurt. Here's how too much booze messes with your body and mood. One major issue: dehydration. Excess alcohol upsets the production of vasopressin, a hormone that controls fluid balance. This sends you rushing to the ladies' room (repeatedly) the night of, and can leave your head aching the next day.

Booze also fiddles with your immune system's cytokines, chemical messengers that can trigger acute inflammation–a.k.a. pain–in your noggin and elsewhere. (A small dose of an anti-inflammatory such as ibuprofen may help.)

If you were knocking back bourbon instead of, say, vodka, your head might be pounding a little harder. In general, darker hard liquors (and most beers and dark wines) contain more congeners, chemicals that may exacerbate hangovers. Smoking cigs also multiplies the misery.
