I remember in the army, after having a binge, the morning started with a drink.

The same we stopped the evening with.

It always worked.

Worth a try.

If not, you might consider a temporary halt?

Or, just endure your week long hangover.

Cheers

It's happening to me also.It's gotten so bad that I only drink heavy maybe only 3 or 4 times A year anymore.I think it has something to do with age.but i'm only guessing.

Is there A doctor in the house?

A simple inexpensive blood test will reveal all - LFT (Liver Function Test will show the AST level, indicator of alcohol), Urea and Electrolytes (Us&Es your bodies ability to excrete waste), Calcium Magnesium Phosphate (CAMG). You may also need to take some Vitamin B1. Hope you recover.

Any more than 2 singhas 3 jack daniels in 1-2 hours and you are drunk. You excrete a small bottle of singha every hour, or one small daniels every hour. you can't drive OK if you drink more than this, you are a danger to yourself and everyone else. Don't get me wrong. I drink but don't then drive

Since you don't say how much you drink in one episode it is difficult to say how long you should take to recover. I've never taken more than 2 days at the worst, normally feel OK the following afternoon. You may be damaging your liver /kidneys severely. have you been to have them checked?

I seem to develop a resistence to hangovers if i'm drinking regularly. Like if i go on a bit of a drinking holiday with mates i might suffer after the first night out but then after that i can drink what i like and not feel anything other than mildly fuzzy the next morning.

I know that if i didn't touch a drop for two weeks and then went on a bender i would suffer terribly like you - maybe not 8 days but a good day and a half, two days.

Your answer might therefore be to either give up altogether or drink a bit more regularly - not binge drink i mean but just the occasional beer throughout the week to build up some sort of tolerance. I'm sure the medics and teetotalers on this forum will be quick to shoot me down though. :)

yep, had all the blood tests, nothing found, i have asked on this forum as in the uk the doctor just said to me "well dont drink ". but to be honest i like to go out and it helps me get in the mood, i dont like discos etc sober, thanks for all the advice so far,... :D
