A 2 Day Hangover is the term for a hangover that lasts for two days after drinking and your first sleep after drinking. Two day long hangovers can involve many different physical and mental symptoms, and the duration of a hangover ultimately depends on many different factors.
The most common symptoms include headaches, nausea, fatigue, dizziness, sensitivity to light and sound, and a general feeling of uneasiness that lasts for longer than one day.

There are several factors that can lead to a two day long hangover.
Drinking water or non-alcoholic beverages will prevent dehydration. This is vital to preventing hangovers since most hangover symptoms are exacerbated by dehydration. Try to drink a glass of water before drinking, between each alcoholic drink, and after drinking.
Generally, the more alcohol consumed, the longer the hangover will last.
Different types of alcohol affect the body differently and they can even cause different hangover symptoms. For example, darker alcoholic drinks like whiskey and red wine contain byproducts of fermentation called congeners that can worsen the symptoms of a hangover.
Some people may be more susceptible to hangovers than others due to their tolerance to alcohol and/or their genetics.
Mixing alcohol with other substances, such as drugs or energy drinks, can worsen the symptoms of a hangover and prolong its duration.
Cocaine in particular can make hangovers last longer and feel worse. When cocaine and alcohol are consumed together, the liver combines them to form a substance called cocaethylene. Cocaethylene has a more potent effect on the cardiovascular and central nervous system than either substance alone, which can lead to increased risk of heart attack and stroke.
