What Happens The Morning After Drinking
Nothing beats a night of boozy adventures with the people you love.
You'll dance, reminisce, and bask in the glory of youth as you share laughs between sips of something bubbly. Whether you go out or stay in, drunken memories are sure to be made.
While the night's debauchery was the star of the show, the next morning may wind up being just as memorable.
Here are eight things that happen the morning after drinking, when you're inevitably hungover AF.
1. That Twinge Of Panic When You First Wake Up
Before you even open your eyes, that pounding in your head tells you something is up.
It will take just a quick second before you remember it all, but in that moment nothing is certain.
Are you even alive rn?
2. The Oscar-Worthy Flashback Of The Night Before
When it comes to you, you see it like a Hollywood montage. The dancing, the drinks -- it's all there (it's fuzzy, but still there).
Everything is so clear now, but what in the world are you to do with the rest of the day?
3. You're Not Sure Who Else Is Hungover
You look around slowly, trying to take in your surroundings without drawing too much attention to yourself.
Thankfully, you're not the only one who just woke up in a lawn chair in the middle of the living room.
4. Trying To Act Like You're Totally Fine
Without missing a beat, you're up and at 'em like the champ you are. You're dressed, fixing your hair, and cracking jokes with the rest of your squad.
Despite the pounding in your head, you're determined to power through as best you can.
5. Wanting Nothing More In The World Than To Sleep
You have enough willpower to make it through about five minutes of the pain before you're back on the ground, begging for sleep.
The light, the sounds, the people -- it's all too much to handle. If you could, you'd be locking yourself up in a dark room for the next day or so.
6. Worshipping The Porcelain Gods
When the nausea hits, there's nothing you can do but hope for the best.
You can't help but wonder how many others have kneeled before this porcelain throne in the same hungover state.
7. Apologizing To Everyone Later Because You're Moody AF
When you're hungover, you can't be held responsible for what comes out of your mouth. You're grumpy, you're tired, and you just don't feel like socializing right now.
8. That Amazing Feeling When You Finally Start To Feel Better
After popping an aspirin, rehydrating yourself, and napping the day away, you're finally beginning to return to your normal state... which means you're ready for round two.
