Boozy boffins pour over the prime age for hangover hell
HANGOVERS are worst at the age of 29 – because we don’t have the same stamina as when we were younger but still try to party hard, a study reveals.
The average time for a hangover is nine hours 45 minutes and it reaches its peak at 9.45am, according to the new research.
But this figure grows for those approaching 30, as 29-year-old boozers mistakenly think they can hit the town just like they did when they were young.
Their hangovers last a mighty 10 hours and 24 minutes on average.
And even work on a Monday morning doesn’t stop us from indulging in a weekend drinking session.
A staggering two thirds of Brits (65 per cent) go into work hungover at the start of the week, while half (49 per cent) admit they have gone in still feeling drunk.
On average, Brits have six sick days a year due to hangovers, as they don’t have the energy to work after a night out.
The research, carried out by Redemption, an alcohol-free bar movement launched in London, also reveals almost one in ten have posted something on Facebook and regretted it the next day.
