A couple of asprin washed down with PediaLyte. PediaLyte is a much better electrolyte than gatorade. Too bad about the taste though.

I don't really drink anymore, but I will say that this recipe never, ever worked once in my history of drinking, which is long and storied. I never detected any significant benefits from drinking lots of water or taking vitamins.

Could just be my metabolism or something.

Weed's definitely a huge help but the trick with the water is to drink it after you're done drinking booze of any kind so as to offset dehydration caused by alcohol; preferably you're drinking a litre or two right when you get home/wherever your crashing that night and you do this right before passing out.

Thanks, now I have another item to put on my watch list for tonight.

I usually get enough pain in the few days prior to the holidays that by the time they roll around I don't want anything to drink. Like now, I don't plan on having another drink for at least several days.

The only true cure for hangovers is water and rest.

Good alcohol genes.

My ancestors are mostly Scottish, German, and Native American. So I ended up with no tolerance and a cast iron liver.

I've never had a hang over in my life despite drinking most nights. I used to think I had had a few, since I would occasionally feel rather bleh the day after I drank a few bottles of wine or a case of beer, then I saw a real, honest-to-god hangover that a friend had. The only time I've ever had anything even comparable to that was the time I picked up what was probably a salmonella infection from some bad food.

Water before bed. Hot shower in the am. Pepcid complete. Excedrin. Drink pickle juice. Several ounces of Venom energy drink. Greasy, shameful food. Dairy products. Mix and match according to symptoms and availibility. Only when all else fails, up to a half bottle of beer. Sipped slowly alongside water. And yes, there have been times when just drowsing in bed were the only cure. I'm usually informed that I was Pie~Eyed the night before.

2012-12-24 05:18:44 PM  
There is no cure, only prevention. A young, healthy liver goes a long way. So does plenty of water while you're imbibing. And after. Also, give yourself a few hours between your last drink and bed. Get a head start on the recovery. The following day, lots of electrolytes, potassium. Until you can pee. And then until that pee is clear.

You guys are not alone. If I had a hangover before I was 30, it was mild. Nothing to keep a guy down. Since then? Horrible. I can understand when I'm binging on bourbon or something, but I'll get one from beer, too. Hell, even if I only have 6 fairly light beers I'll feel really slow the next day. It's why I only drink once a month on average. Though that in itself probably doesn't help. The only cure for it would be to never get sober, but I'm not the type.
 
2012-12-24 05:50:32 PM  
Drinking correctly is the only sure hangover cure.

Stick with something. Drinking beer? Stick with beer. Shots? Stick with shots. You have a much easier time gauging how drunk you are.

Drink lots of mixed drinks with fruit juice in them. That way, you get at least as much fruit juice as alcohol for each beverage. Helps keep a body hydrated.

Stay away from white Russians or other drinks that taste too good/like there's no alcohol there. It's way too easy to have four in a 30-minute span.
 
2012-12-24 05:55:05 PM  
Been drinking for 10 years now (I know, I'm young) and in my experience hangovers happen in movies, not in real life. Sure, I'll be sleep deprived (I can never sleep in after drinking) but no head aches, light/sound sensitivity etc. What I do is start drinking and after you stop you go home, eat some greasy food (like a big plate of fries). While the frying pan is warming I start The Lion King and after about half the movie I go to bed. When I wake up I get more food, preferably something that goes down smoothly like curry or a nice soup.

I only started smoking weed because it cured my hangovers. My college roommates got me to hit their vaporizer one day when I was laying around feeling miserable. Next thing I knew I felt amazing. Now I usually just have a few really big craft beers while puffing on my e-cigarette style vaporizer. Weed probably cut my drinking by more than half.

I like how there are studies that prove there are no cures for hangovers (although I've read about using an IV to hydrate and provide vitamins being effective), but then every other person swears drinking some water or eating breakfast etc. will magically cure the effects of consuming a vast quantity of alcohol.

I suspect a lot of the people who claim it's so easy to cure a hangover are either in the percentage the article mentions are immune (that would be nice), are >20, or are only drinking 3-4 drinks, in which case your "hangover" will be minimal to non-existent.

The only accounts I've ever read of simply drinking water or eating etc. that actually cure a 10+ drink hangover are online personal experiences.

1. Take multivitamins and a big cup of water before hitting the bed.
2. Waking up, take a big dump.
3. Have a _really_ big meal of your choice. Mexican food, pizza, heavy bean soup works best for me.
4.a For a serious hangover, go back and sleep more for a couple of hours.
4.b For a mild hangover, fap. Or play a game, or watch TV, or troll Fark.
4.c For a light hangover everything will be fine at this point.

WORKED FOR ME TODAY DAMNIT.

Well, the headache will often disappear if you drink water because most of the pain is from dehydration.

The queasy stomach can be cured by vinegar/pickle juice because it resets the pH and stopped the acid from causing vomiting and indigestion.

The queasy stomach can also be settled by eating greasy food because the oil takes longer to digest, slowing down the absorption of alcohol and left over poison by products. It doesn't stop the poison from affecting you but it will slow down the impact so you feel 'better'

And the light sensitivity might be helped by vitamin boosts because it will help restore electrolytes which are necessary for nerve function, as well as help with hydration.

Lots of reasons why some things work, it's not magic

Blame Hofmann: I suspect a lot of the people who claim it's so easy to cure a hangover are either in the percentage the article mentions are immune (that would be nice), are >20, or are only drinking 3-4 drinks, in which case your "hangover" will be minimal to non-existent.


A night of drinking ends with less than 10 drinks? People who brag about not having a hangover after only drinking that much aren't living up to their potential.

I still sweat by lots and lots of food. But then again I am the only person I know who claims that alcohol makes a man hungry so maybe I'm just weird that way.

I don't expect anyone to follow this, but it saved my ass numerous times.

Step 1) Get insanely drunk
Step 2) An hour before passing out, stop drinking alcohol and drink only water. Drink between 1L and 2L (dehydration is a major source of the feeling of a hangover)
Step 3) When you wake up in the middle of the night (undoubtedly), take 2 extra strength tylenol.
Step 4) When you wake up in the morning, take 2 more extra strength tylenol.
Step 5) Eat some toast with butter.
Step 6) Go for a 30 minute jog, at a pace fast enough so you're drenched in sweat by the time you're done.

No, no... seriously... this is a NO FAIL solution. Yes, it's 30 minutes of pain, but by the time you're done, you are feeling AWESOME.

Before bed, as much regular organic coconut water as you can stand and N-Acetyl Cystiene/ B-complex.

If you really overdid it and blackout/passout before you can do that, Coco Cafe Organic Coconut water mixed with espresso, psuedoephedrine tablets, and a standard blood sugar booster like those that diabetics take for emergencies / b-complex.  * (the peach juice trick is another standard diabetic emergency cure)

For the next morning, a bloody beer. Glass half full of ice, 1/3 full of cheap beer (Coors works well), add tomato juice for the last bit and tons of salt on top of the whole thing - don't stir as it stirs itself and you want the full effect (affect?) of the salt without it being fully mixed in the drink.

A couple of those and you feel golden.

No offense meant to you WillyFreddy. ..  HA HA! I'M ARGUING ON TEH INTARWEBS!11ONE

Just, as some have clarified, pointing out that taking large doses of acetaminophen/paracetamol while boozing can be really harmful. . .
Per wikipedia:  While generally safe for use at recommended doses (1,000 mg per single doseand up to4,000 mg per day for adults),acute overdoses of paracetamol can cause potentially fatal kidney, brain and liver damage, and in rare cases with some individuals, a normal dose can do the same.  The risk may be heightened by chronic alcohol. Paracetamol hepatotoxicity is, by far, the most common cause of acute liver failure in both the United States and the United Kingdom.

A young healthy liver is a terrible thing to waste, so (while I am not a doctor), I would urge you to stop doing this (combining large doses of acetaminophen/paracetamol and alcohol) and advise other not to try it.  Any doctor or health professional would recommend the same.  Again, no offense meant or taken--take care of yourselves kiddies, you only get one body!

LOL, I forgot that my profile said that. I wrote it originally to be ironic, since I rarely find myself arguing with anyone anywhere. And, yes, everyone else is 100% right and I was 100% wrong about this issue. Don't ever use tylenol after alcohol. Other than yesterday, I never really drink (haven't had a hangover in 10+ years), so I don't use that "method" anymore. To be honest, I have no idea if I was using tylenol, aspirin, or ibuprofen for my hangovers back then... since my liver is tip-top, I'm guessing it wasn't tylenol!

Regardless, I'll not make that mistake again :)
