People often ask me, “Chilly, you’re pretty old and you seem to drink a ton of booze – how the hell do you deal with the hangovers???” The answer is a complicated one. Well, at least the second part is complicated. The first part of dealing with a hangover is pretty easy. Never having to be anywhere at a specific time eliminates a lot of hangover stress. If you take care of that problem, you will find that hangovers are generally a modest imposition when you can start your day at 6:00 PM.
However, the actual physiological problem of feeling like dogshit after too much booze is something that even the unemployed must deal with. Hangovers are as individualized as snowflakes, but I’ve come up with a methodology that generally allows me to handle the worst of what the drinking gods have to offer. I’m not absolutely sure it’s transferable, but I will pass it along nonetheless. If even one person benefits from my experience, than I can consider my work here a solid contribution to the greater good.
