when i woke up this morning with a big headache, i swore off beer...again. every cell in my body was clamoring for sleep and a painkiller. but i had no choice, i had to go to work. and so i got up, but not before swearing off that yellow, foamy liquid again.

i knew going out on a weeknight with friends and drinking more than i normally do was not a smart thing to do. but what could i do? we were having a good time, laughing, gossiping and reminiscing. a few secrets were let out but we didn't care. i'm sure nobody would remember much about them anyway.

our own version of oktoberfest started out after K's wedding a few weeks ago. that night, i rediscovered the joy of alcohol-induced laughter (walang sense na tawanan) which i thought i had already outgrown. that night, i also rediscovered how good beer tasted, especially when fresh!

but for now, i'm off beer...until the next night out. as much as i love the taste of it, i've learned my lesson. no more drinking more than my limit. and if i do, i have to be sure i have no work the next day. that's my final resolve unless i find a quick cure for hangover. ;-)

tip from a drinker: NEVER drink beer with ice. order your beer very cold. it's the mixture of ice and beer that gives you a hangover.

i agree beer, just like wine, brandy or cognac is never drunk with ice.

Kero, when I was just starting to drink I got two very useful tips from a veteran drinker. He said don't drink on an empty stomach and drink at least two glasses of cold water before you go to sleep. I get nasty hangovers once in a while but I noticed that it usually happens when I forget about his tips. I'm not giving any guarantee though. :)
