Can you drink as much as you used to?

My friend Sabrina‘s birthday was yesterday. Our party actually drank ALL the champagne in the restaurant. Like literally there was none left and the restaurant let some folks go to the store and bring in more. I had enough to end up singing karaoke for like the second time ever.

I feel like death in a blender today though. I feel like I used to have better recovery time or maybe we all really did drink that much.

Do you find that, over time, especially if you do not drink particularly often, your tolerance goes down and your recovery time takes longer?

PS How the heck is recumbent a mood option on this thing and hungover is not?
