People will have 45 hangovers per year between the ages of 38 and 46, and 23 per year between the ages of 46 and 60.

And so, 1,926 days - or 5.27 years - will be lost to hangovers during an average lifetime.

Sweet Lady Beverages comments, "It's staggering to think we as a nation spend so much time - and so much money - doing something that makes us feel lousy. The message we can take from this is simple - by reducing our alcohol intake we can reduce the amount of time feeling wretched."
