When the party is over.

In a separate survey of 1,073 drinkers found that more than 1 in 10 (14%) drinkers say they expect to experience more hangovers this holiday season due to the challenging year 2020 has been. This study also showed that the most commonly attempted hangover cure for those surveyed was drinking water.

According to our survey, the most commonly attempted hangover cure was drinking water, with around 95 percent of women and 94 percent of men attempting it. When water failed, sleeping it off became the next cure of choice. Women (81 percent) were slightly more likely to press snooze than men (72 percent), but men and women were nearly equally likely to have tried reviving themselves with sleep’s antithesis: coffee.
