I have better ?: why do you KEEP ON DRINKING when you get week-long hangovers every time. I am afraid the answer is that you are developing an alcohol use disorder, previously called alcohol abuse/dependency. Continuing to use a substance despite regularly getting harm from that substance is a hallmark symptom of a disorder. It is because you are likely drinking way too much, too often. Stop&get help from doctor.

When it wears off: As soon as the alcohol wears off, depends on how soon your body metabolizes it.
