willyfreddy: 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.


Worst. advice. ever.  http://www.medicinenet.com/tylenol_liver_damage/article.htm

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.

sigdiamond2000: Gonz: (I've also heard that THC actually stands for "total hangover cure", if you're so inclined.)

That's the only thing that ever worked for me.


Agreed. Big spliff, chased by a nice big cup of coffee. By the time yer done w/ coffee, the munchies have kicked in and yer ready for a big plate of steak, eggs and fried potatoes smothered in hot sauce, paired with a large grapefuit juice.

Hangover vanquished.

maxalt: Keep drinking always works. Dean Martin once said "I feel sorry for people who don't drink, when they wake up they know that's the best they're gonna feel all day.".


Thanks a lot, that made me review the 1965 Rat Pack St. Louis Opera House video.

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

Empty Matchbook: 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.


It was kinda funny in a way. I got completely wasted on the cheapest vodka I've ever bought. $9.99 for 1.75 liters.
/That new liquor store in Corbin is great.

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.

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