Calling all Shrewsbury party people - "Your head's banging and your mouth feels like it has been lined with cheap carpet. Even your skin seems to be objecting to last night's excess. Hangovers hurt."
This is the opening gambit from the drinkaware.co.uk website. And it's true! Still for a many of us, we seem to be willing to put up with a bit of pain, especially over the festive season when it can seem like any excuse for a quick tipple is a good one.
One of my dear friends from Shrewsbury who now resides in the big smoke is doing 'manic last minute Christmas shopping' on the 23rd. Not to let this go by without some sort of celebration I have already arranged to meet her in one of the towns many lovely bars for a 'celebratory mulled wine'.
If this turns into a few more, knowing I have the annual Christmas meal with my school friends the next day, then the hallowed big day itself, and it would be rude not to have wine with dinner on Boxing Day....I had better make myself safe, drinkaware and get a few hangover tips....
Here are the top tips from drinkaware.co.uk
If you are in any doubt as to the laws regarding alcohol consumption then you can always visit our legal services page to seek further advice.
