Hi
Welcome to the forum!
Well, if you have been taking alcohol for so long then it cannot be a hangover. Cluster headaches can be triggered by ethanol in alcohol. Tyramine in red wine can trigger migraine like headache. Impurities in vodka can cause a headache. Hence probably you will have to look for a brand of Vodka that suits you.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!

is there anything you can suggest to help avert the headache (aside from not drinking at all) ?  Milk Thistle ?

also,. is it common to have been a social drinker for so long with no ill effects and now i have a headache after one or two drinks ? is it a sign of age ?

thanks so much for your attention
