Cf and alcohol...???

Hi all

I have allways enjoyed a few (a lot) beers on Fridays or Saturdays.
However my hangover is like sitting in the lungs, - its like i've poured beer down my lungs, 1-2 days after having been drunk.
How do you guys cope with hangovers / alcohol ?Do you drink huge amount of water the day after, or what could be done to avoid the congested feeling? (I know avoiding alcohol, but actually i bellieve alcohol is benefitting cf in the long run...Ill explain my theory later in case someone is interested ) ?

Thanks for any answer from out there

I think what you're feeling is the dehydration, something like diluted gatorade would probably make you feel better!

I want to hear your alcohol/CF theory!

Re: Cf and alcohol...???

what i do is drink a whole lot of water before i go to bed when ive had a big night out. unfortunately, usually your not really in the state of mind to do this just before you pass out. so what you could do is space out your drinks with a glass of water in between each alcoholic drink.
from what i know the only reason you get a hang over, is because your dehydrated.

oh... and i'd be interested in that theory as well.
