“It isn’t the phys­i­cal ef­fects of a hang­over that bother me, those are eas­ily cured by an­other drink as soon as you wake up (it’s why al­co­holics are so happy), it is the meta­phys­i­cal ones, the shame and re­gret and the sense of pure hope­less­ness. The way a re­ally bad hang­over length­ens the day. The moun­tain­ous qual­ity that all the lit­tle ob­sta­cles of the com­ing days and weeks seem to take on. So for me, the best cure is a cud­dle with my chil­dren. Come down­stairs, stick on Trolls or Frozen or

Moana, bribe the kids onto the sofa with a choc ice, get one tucked un­der each arm, turn up the vol­ume and when the kids are def­i­nitely not look­ing, have a lit­tle cry. And then ev­ery­thing is rosy.”
