Why does a single alcoholic drink sometimes cause a bigger hangover than two or even three drinks at other times?

Hang over: Maybe the type of beverage, maybe you are not hydrated or haven't eaten. Maybe you have low alcohol tolerance. Hydrating with water before, during, and after gathering is always beneficial. Munchings also is good to prevent hang over. Alcohol + munchings= beer belly.
