How Much Does A Hangover Really Cost You?
You know what a hangover costs you physically, but have you wondered what it costs you monetarily?
Excessive drinking costs the economy more than $220 billion – or about $1.90 per drink, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
Seventy-two percent of the costs came from lost workplace productivity, according to the 2006 survey, which suggests that the economic loss from hangovers is about $160 billion.
About 15 percent of the binge-drinking public is responsible for around 75 percent of the total economic costs of drinking.
