I am looking for the (slang) phrase or equivalent of the word drunkenness which contains the word dog. I mean the state of someone in the morning after the hard drunkenness.

    @Adel - I believe it was "after the hard drunkenness", which makes your answer invalid. Please remember to read carefully before answering. I am not flagging your answer, but please try to be careful.

It's possible you are thinking of "hair of the dog". This is not the same as being drunk - it's the practice of having another alcoholic drink in the morning, in an attempt to cure your hangover from the previous night.

  • you are right.. I heart it. It is that I am looking for

  • @igor - I am glad you got your question answered, although it was not an answer to the actual question you asked. People can get very nit-picky here, and I would hate to see you picked-on because of it.

You may be looking for the word "hangover"


You could possibly feel "dog-eared", which is slang for "worn down".
