ko_kyi: 3. Sip on water if you wake up in the night.


This is crucial.

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 shot of lemon extract and 1 jalapeno pepper, finely ground, in a 16-Oz. glass of V 8 juice.

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

A Terrible Human: Empty Matchbook: An entire low-sugar sports drink or a LOT of coconut water before bed tend to ward off the worst of it with another the following morning to chase away the rest.

But what if you don't remember going to sleep? I woke up with puke matted in my hair and dried on my shirt.


Then I'd probably chug two. And take a shower. And increase your tolerance/stick to your limit.

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.

Best way to avoid a hangover: don't get one.

Eat greasy food before and during drinking, match your drinks with water, B-vitamins and electrolytes. I've never had a hangover in my life.

Plenty of water after drinking, 2 aspirin before going to bed, plenty of rest, greasy food with eggs for breakfast, more water and more aspirin. If that doesn't work, start drinking again.

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)

I know some friends who were pre/med and paramedics who used to give themselves I.V. drips.  That seemed like a bit much.

1. Upon waking up, Immediately Hate Everything
2. Stub my toe, scream
3. Take a leak, stumble out of the bathroom only to remember I have to take a dump.
4. Groggily drink water from the tap.
5. A) Fall back asleep in bed
B) Fall back asleep on bathroom mat
6. Repeat until said hangover is gone

Yes, THIS! Never mix acetaminophen with alcohol. Ibuprofen or naproxen are best if you don't have stomach issues, and aspirin if you do.

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.

From the label on the box: "Take 1-2 pills every 4 hours. Do not exceed 8 per day."

And yet somehow taking 4 pills total (2 pills at a time, separated by, roughly, 4 hours) qualifies as "Worst. advice. ever."? Perhaps I should have added another step:
