Why don't I get hangovers?!

Question: Why don't I get hangovers!?
What is it about some people that they get really horrible hangovers, and then some don't get one at all!.

For example, my roomate and I equally shared a bottle of rum last night before going out, at the bar had some drinks and some shots!. I got to bed around 3 am and then I was awake at 7 am today for work!. I felt a little drunk still (lol) but hungover, na!. Now it's almost 10 am and I know I'm sober and still not hungover!. This is not a rare occarance for me!.

I'm also not a puker!. I can understand that I'm a taller, bigger girl than a lot of my friends so that might have something to do with it!. But my tolerance isn't incredible and I haven't drank a drop for about a month!.

My boyfriend is talled and bigger than me and he drinks beer frequently with dinner or just to relax!. But he cannot hang with me at the bar!. He will be pukin at night and the next day look like he was rode hard and put away wet!.

I have plenty of friends that can drink more than me (or choose to even tho it may not be so wise) and plenty that can't

My question is, no matter how much we all drink, why am I the only one who doesn't vomit at night or in the morning, and the next day feels golden!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

Your lucky!. That or you have a high tolerance, one strong liver!. You also must be keeping well hydrated, as drinking oddly enough causes dehydration during sleep that brings on a headache!. You not missing anything!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

I envy you, I wish I was still like that! I was like that when I was 18, I guess they'd call you fish! Don't ask why, just enjoy it! You do not want to be like the others!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

your lucky!.

Your liver is designed to remove toxic waste from your system!. If it did not do it's job properly you would be ill from toxins remaining in your system!.
Keep drinking like your friends and soon you will have the fun of hangovers as you tear down your liver!.
They don't have as good a cleansing system as you from the git go and theirs will deteriorate also to the point that they will become cheap drunks and then progress to nearly unstoppable alcoholics!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
