A Bad Sign: Yes. It means you are routinely drinking to excess; you are having repeated alcohol poisoning ( hangovers) and you are only 24 years old. It sounds like you have probably the genes that make you prone to alcoholism. There is a solution. But it means not drinking and then addressing the underlying medical condition.
