New research suggests smoking while drinking alcohol may make hangovers worse.

Researchers used online surveys to track more than a hundred college students for two months.

The students recorded happenings, such as drinking, smoking and their hangovers.

Researchers found the students who smoked on the same days they drank were more likely to suffer a hangover than those who only drank.

Researchers say the design of the study didn't allow the team to pinpoint exactly how much worse the hangovers were or if smoking caused worse hangovers.

Study authors believe it may have something to do with the parts of the brain that process both tobacco and alcohol.

The findings appear in the "Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs."
