Ok, so was nightshift on Friday night then friends invited us for a bbq yesterday. I said we would love to come but as I was pretty tired as had been looking after dc all day following n/s cos hubby at work that we wouldn't stay late and I wasn't going to drink. Well that plan went out the window....4 bottles of wine later and home at 1am Feeling very hungover and healthy eating has up and left me today due to hangover!

Had a fab night tho from what I remember but I'm finding my 2 yr old hard work today and feeling guilty as can't be bothered doing anything with him.

I have absolutely no resolve hmm

do you often go on a bender? surely you didn't have four bottles of wine to yourself shock

take the children out for a walk, fresh air will do you some good, hope you feel better soon

If this is a regular thing, impacting on your children the day after, you might think about changing your lifestyle

Hi Raisin, nope 4 bottles was between 3 of us thankfully or think I'd be dead and can go weeks without a having a drink probably why when i do i get so hungover
I know going for a walk would be the right thing to do but just seriously lack motivation! I'm off tomorrow so going to make it up to kids then. Just wish when I did have a drink I knew when to stop or when I say I'm not going to I could stick to that

Boring but take lemonade and make fizzes to water down a bit

Bless you, hangover plus kids sucks

It sucks so bad! ds 2.8 is so whingy and know it's cos of me. Feeling like worlds shitest mum right now!
Will definitely start mixing up wine with lemonade as can't handle the next day! Massive respect for people who know when they've had enough

I don't drink at all now, because I have no Off Button

That's kinda like me, abd have many, many times normally when hungover have thought I'm going to stop but then as soon as I'm at a function or night out always end up having a drink that leads to too many!
Does your life feel better for not drinking and never being hungover?
