Hubby and I went out last night to celebrate my birthday. Our first stop was at one of my friend's dessert places to make sure I had some food in my system. I had a glass of wine there, and stuffed mushrooms which are to die for. Then we went over to the bar where hubby works on the weekends. Everyone knows him.. so the bartender was giving me free drinks and shots all night. Hubby only drank a couple redbulls, they were also free. We tipped the bartender $20, but never paid a dime for a drink. I really didn't think I'd had too much to drink, but apparently I did... Today I feel like death! I spent most of the morning being sick.. I tried so many things to try to settle my stomach and get some fluids in my system, but I couldn't keep anything down. I took a short nap this afternoon and feel a little better now, still weak and still haven't eaten but at least I am keeping some fluids down.. I guess my body just had to remind me I'm not 20 anymore! I think it will be a good long while before I party like that again! When was the last time you had a hangover?

@katsmeow1213 I never realized it until it was too late.

Occasionally I wake with a bit of a headache but I don't like noticing that I'm slurring words or whatever so I usually ease off before that point. At least you really celebrated your birthday! And a belated Happy Birthday too!

Thanks! I blame it on the bartender! I don't drink often.. but usually I can hold my liquor. I think whatever she mixed for me (I told her to surprise me) was just too strong.. then a couple shots and another drink later and I was a goner! I wasn't slurring words, but standing up straight wasn't an easy task, and I was usually holding onto hubby for support.

@katsmeow1213 Having someone supply drinks is totally different to choosing your own.

@JudyEv I drink so infrequently that I don't really have a signature drink. I love white russians, but they always make me sick so I stay away from them.

The last time I had a hangover was decades ago when my future husband went to Europe for 6 weeks. Never again I did it.

I didn't intend to drink so much, but when the bartender learned it was my birthday she kept giving me shots!

I never have had one. I have only had an occasional drink ever. I am hesitant to ever make drinking a habit as many people in my family have been addicted.

Well, it was a great time for you and your husband, but sorry it did not end well. I think in college may have been the last time I had a hangover, but I never got sick from a hangover, just really tired.

It ended just fine! Today is another story.. This has got to be the worst hangover I've ever had! And I didn't even really drink that much!

Not sure I ever had one, but if I did it was over 43 years ago.

I've never had a hangover, but I've had migraines; all the pain, none of the fun! Besides, you're only 29! Happy belated birthday! You ARE the Kat's meow. I know, I know, it's terrible.

No way! I'm 21!! I don't ever want to be 29! Okay.. maybe in 10 years I'll be okay with 29...

@katsmeow1213 I'd actually take 29, or even 30. I mean 21 sounds good as long as I get to skip the drama that I had going on then.

@AmbiePam Hmm.. I guess.. 21 wasn't bad for me. I started dating my husband right around my birthday.. officially it was a week later but you know.. we moved in together that year. That was also the year of 9/11 though. We were moving in to our first place the day that happened.

Happy Birthday! I think most of us have been in your shoes, A birthday is a good day to celebrate as long as you have a sober driver... I hate hangovers and thankfully with age cames wisdom..

My husband doesn't drink, even if he's allowed to, he doesn't like to.

Can't recall having one, but guess it might have happened somewhere along the way @katsmeow1213
