Hi, I’m Emma, and about once or twice a week (on Saturday and Sunday mornings, to be specific), I’m prone to serious bouts of hangxiety.
It might not be a term you're familiar with, but chances are, you’re familiar with its symptoms.
If you’re anything like me, you might spend the day drifting in and out of sleep, trying to forget the previous night’s antics. It sucks. So much so, that as the end of the work week looms ahead, the anxiety starts kicking in again for what is to come.
Watch: The five best foods to cure a hangover. Post continues below.
You’d think it would be enough to put me off drinking altogether, but alas, I’m not so self-aware just yet.
I know, I know, drinking is bad. But it’s also liberating, and fun, and a novelty that still hasn’t worn off for me two years into being "legal", and I’m not willing to give it up just yet.
I want to enjoy the buzz of getting ready on a Friday night with a seltzer in hand. Because alcohol can be enjoyed and consumed safely.
