A new survey has found that an average Briton spends nearly one year of his life nursing a hangover.
The survey was carried out by Macmillan Cancer Support who interviewed around 2,000 Britons and found that more than seven percent of Britons suffer from an average of 3,000 hangovers in their lifetime.
People living in the north were found to be more likely to experience hangovers with the survey finding that 22 percent of those from the north suffering from more than four hangovers each month compared to 15 percent of those from the south. The survey was carried as part of the charity's Go Sober for October fundraising campaign.
"This research shows hangovers are a waste of time and are causing people to miss out on everything from romance to their dream job. That's why we're asking people to sign up for Macmillan's Go Sober fundraising event, abstain from drinking alcohol for the month of October and ask family and friends to sponsor them. The money raised will provide vital funds to support people affected by cancer so they don't have to face it alone", Macmillan Cancer Support's Hannah Redmond said.
