Have to say whenever I have a heavy night out on the beer I always suffer for the next few days. I got away with it for the first year or so but not now.
But another quite interesting piece of information, my wife recently undertook a series of colonic irrigation visits. The Doctor there advised that in most cases of ulcerative colitis flare ups that she knew about were where the person was suffering extreme stress and many of these were having affairs.
I guess the doctor just happens to know many people who have Ulcerative Colitis and are having affairs.
