I’m thinking about becoming an alcoholic, but I don’t want to have hangovers. In your expert opinion, which types of alcohol give the worst hangovers? -- Dia from Syracuse, New York
Right off the bat, I would highly advise you do not become an alcoholic. It’s not really something you can or should aspire to. It’s like being in love, you can’t force it, you just wake up one morning and realize its happened. As for your question I would have to say, without a doubt, ethyl alcohol aka rubbing alcohol gives the worst hangovers. It’s not even up for argument. Some people think whiskey is pretty bad, but you don’t know true pain until you’ve had a rubbing alcohol hangover. First of all, it kicks in immediately. With other alcohols there’s a good period where things feel great and you get the negative effects later on in the night and the morning after. It’s almost less of a hangover and more like your brain, liver, and heart shutting down and dying. Definitely not recommended! With rubbing alcohol you have to immediately vomit and call poison control. With other alcohols you can vomit later on at your leisure and there’s generally no blood in the vomit.
