Boozy boffins pour over the prime age for hang­over hell

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

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.
