I drink a fair bit (probably too much) but I always find that when I wake up the next morning I always have a hang-over (even if I didn't drink a whole lot) and, for me, it's always in the stomach. In movies/TV you always see people "needing a cup of coffee" or "an advil". To me those are essentially worthless and when I get hung-over I either need the "hair of the dog" or just keep on sleeping. I'm just curious. Do other people get "headache" hang-overs and actually find that an advil or some such helps/makes you functional for the day? Can other people just hit the coffee pot? P.S. I'm sure there are many who would supply a puritan litany about the dangers of alcohol or the purity/superiority of an alcohol free life but I'm just curious about the physiology of hang-overs.
