Ha!  Sorry you’re feeling bad but I can’t drink anymore either.  I never really drank all that much but now when I go out and start drinking, I get about half a drink in and develop a headache!  Not fun – but I’m a pretty cheap date.  😉

that’s hilarious – i had that thought last week. We went out on a weeknight to this big event and to a bar afterward… it was barely 10 and i’m like, we HAVE to get home! I’m going to turn into a pumpkin! Though after some reflection, i’m much happier in my routine than going out all the time. Better for my BANK ACCOUNT also, not drinking much 😉

I feel ya. When I was in college, I could drink like a CHAMP. I’m talking beers, shots, etc., ALL NIGHT and feel great the next day.

Now, in my mid-30’s, I have a couple of drinks and feel hungover the next day, without even the fun of being drunk the night before.

This happens to me all the time now!!  i used to party hard and now that I don’t go out as much, when I drink …IT’S OVER!!  I’m wasted so quick and the next day SUCKS!!  It takes me all morning and afternoon to recover!!

I just graduated last May, but I never drank in college (I had a sip of champ for a wedding toast, but that’s it). Sometimes I think I missed out haha – but I loved college and totaly miss it!

Either way, I also feel totally old now becuase I don’t even stay out late (probably the down side of moving back in with mom and dad haha).

Haha, if it helps, you sound like me and I’m still in college. I did the partying thing in high school, but with the hours I work and classes now that I’m in college I rarely have more than 2 or 3 glasses of wine at a time. And I certainly wouldn’t be able to handle what I used to drink (read: way too much tequila).

Haha, I drank half a beer last night when I got home from work, and fell asleep on the couch at 8 o’clock. GAH!

Haha, I totally hear you. It’s happened to me too.
My motto used to be “work hard, play hard”, and now it’s more like “it’s 10pm!? Why am I still awake??!”

Up until a year or so ago, I could stay up late, drink as much as I liked, go out, party, etc. and be totally fine for work the next morning. Now, not so much (read: at all). The staying up late is especially what kills me now. Ugh, getting old sucks. 🙂

Count me in the crowd that can’t drink much anymore.

I also found that the older I get the more water I have to drink before and after I even have one glass of wine.

Haha, Boyfriend or Best Friend had a drink and a half last week, and was gone.

It was pretty funny.

He was surprised, but I told him we don’t drink all that often, so of course it hit him hard.

Gaahhhh!!! I know, right!?!?!??!

When i hit about 27 I started to realize that no matter how much or how little I drink, I’m ALWAYS hungover!!!   NO amount of water, ibuprofen, or greasy food can save me.  *sigh*
