Bad news for the cast of Mad Men: If you smoke when you drink, you're more likely to wake up with a head-splitting hangover.

People who smoked more heavily on the day they drank reported much more severe hangovers, according to a study out of the Center for Alcohol and Addiction Studies at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island.

"At the same number of drinks, people who smoke more that day are more likely to have a hangover and have more intense hangovers," researcher Damaris J. Rohsenow said.
