Guess what? We found some study results that will give us something amazing to look forward to when we age.
A study on 50,000 adults was published in Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research, found that people had less of a hangover as they get older. Yay! According to Telegraph:
21 per cent of women aged 18-29 suffered nausea with a hangover compared with just 3 per cent of women older than 60.
And here is one for middle-aged men, accused of lacking stamina by their hard-drinking juniors at rugby club dinners. More than 60 per cent of men in their twenties suffered exhaustion when they had a hangover, compared with just 14 per cent in the older cohort.

All of a sudden, I can't wait to turn 60 and wake up fresh after a long boozy night. But then again, at 60 you probably won't be dancing your limbs off at a pumping club, which might be why it's easier to pace yourself at an older age. I've got 30 years to find out.
