Phuza Thursday

It's Phuza Thursday but don't let that ruin your day tomorrow. Drinking more alcohol than your body can handle is what leads to a hangover (and not consuming cheap booze or "mixed" drinks). If you're prone to having one too many, you could reduce the effects with these nifty hacks: Never starve yourself before drinking – a full stomach slows the absorption of alcohol; include ice cream in your party night diet – high blood sugar levels, coldness, and foods rich in protein and fats can slow alcohol's path to your brain; and avoid Aspirin: it may interfere with the enzyme that breaks down alcohol.
