45 Nicknames For Hangovers – Which Of These Do You Know?


BE AWARE THIS ARTICLE CONTAINS STRONG LANGUAGE AND/OR SWEARWORDS THAT SOME READERS MAY FIND OFFENSIVE, READER DISCRETION IS ADVISED.

Whether it’s the stinging headache that feels like a thousand hot knives behind your retinas, the 3 am kebab sitting just below your epiglottis threatening to make a reappearance, or the fact that any sort of sympathy is nowhere to be found, a hangover can feel like an shitty time to be alive, and responsible for plenty wishing they bloody well weren’t!

But, as is the case with anything in life that’s less than perfect, irreverence abounds and the different names for a hangover are many, varied, and often hilarious or stupid that many come to fruition after a few too many shots or pints.

So, pop your sunglasses firmly on your face, slowly sip a Diet Coke (aka The Black Doctor) and please enjoy our list of the best ways to say you’ve got a hangover.
