I love drinking. Like, to the point where I really don’t want to become an alcoholic so I can continue to enjoy drinking for the rest of my life. There are many problems that come along with alcohol consumption, though, and usually, our way of fixing or preventing them — whether they be hangovers, blackouts, or turning into complete douchebags when we drink — are based on lies, myths, and misconceptions.

I, for example, believed for years that, as long as I only drank one type of drink, I would not get hungover. It turns out that this is absolutely not true. Severity of hangovers, sickness, and drunkenness are not based off of the kinds of alcohol you are drinking so much as the amount. No more nights of drinking only PBR for me.

That, and 28 other misconceptions, are cleared up in this excellent video by the YouTube channel Mental Floss. Watch it and never be hungover, or out of control again.
