Christmass Bliss

Our process for avoiding hangovers during the festive season

Whether we indulge or not, booze is everywhere at Christmas. Even if we don’t drink it, it’s hidden in mince pies, cakes and trifles. From the trend for alcoholic advent calendars (make mine a gin one please!), where you can enjoy your favourite tipple every day during the run up, right up to New Year’s eve, alcohol features very prominently in December and is the reason why dry January exists.

Christmas gives us the excuse to indulge a bit more than usual. That’s why it’s fun, right? We wouldn’t normally drink alcohol when out shopping (well, most of us anyway), but a Christmas market wouldn’t be the same without a glass of mulled wine. Booze and social occasions go hand in hand, so as we attend more parties, meals out and get togethers over the festive period, we are likely to drink more as a result (unless we’re the designated driver, of course).

What about the big day?

Then there’s Christmas day itself. Everyone has their traditions; champagne for breakfast, a glass of sherry before dinner, port with cheese after the main meal – it’s easy to over indulge.

When I was younger, I didn’t seem to suffer the consequences quite as badly as I do now. Over the years, I’ve learnt that if I want to enjoy myself without a hangover the next day (which is the last thing you want at this time of year) I have to follow a process. As with all processes, it’s not infallible. If I don’t follow every step, I know I’m in trouble the next day!

So if you intend to let your hair down and have a few drinks at your work’s Christmas party or simply whilst entertaining at home, follow my six-step plan to help avoid getting a hangover.
