 Five Years With a Hangover in Britain
Over five years in an average lifespan would be spent with a hangover by the British, reveals an interesting survey by alcohol-free drinks maker, Sweet Lady Beverages.

1500 visitors to the company's website were involved in the online survey.

It revealed that the average man and woman, between the ages of 21 and 38, gets drunk on a weekly basis. They will spend 60 days per year with a hangover, or a total of 1,020 days in the 17-year period.

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."
