HNExpress Staff Reporter, Kolkata : Winter holidays have begun and with it the mood for Christmas and New Year’s Eve Party! However, party invitations bear the bane of a heavy head the next morning.

However, most of these party mongers end up with a bad hangover on the morning post-party, which is a result of unmonitored alcohol consumption.”
Hangovers generally present with the symptoms like headache coupled with muscle aches, nausea or vomiting, increased sensitivity to light and sound, dizziness and mood disturbances. Dr. Ghosh has given some key tips to party keeping a hangover at bay, which is mentioned below:
