People will give you sh*tty advice like "drink water." F*ck that, you need a McDonald's breakfast sandwich, at least one hashbrown, and a large coke with extra ice. The challenge is getting up while McDonald's is serving breakfast.

I am a man of science and medicine, so let's approach it in that manner.  A hangover is the culmination of a several conditions caused by excessive alcohol consumption.  Let's address them:

Pain/headache - NO TYLENOL.  It'll totally rip up your liver with that much alcohol being metabolized too.  Two Advil/ibuprofen are plenty.  You don't get more or faster relief with more pills, just take two.

Poop - yes, pooping will make you feel better.  Really.  As a man of science, I don't have a particular reason why.  By the time it's poop in your colon, it's not releasing toxins into your body anymore, but pooping it out really makes you feel better.

Lost electrolytes - in short, body salts were lost from all the liquids you took in, and eliminated from peeing (and maybe vomiting).  Gatorade, eh, better than nothing, but Pedialyte is better.  Dilute with ice.  But honestly, in my hangover cure I prefer soup.  Egg drop soup, or a bowl of chicken soup.  Because of all the fluids in it, it's much better than the often-recommended breakfast foods like McDonald's.  If you're after fats and protein by eating that stuff, your chicken soup will contain plenty.  Speaking of proteins and fat...

Eat the right thing - as noted, fats and protein, and electrolytes.  Chicken soup.  Chinese food like moo goo gai pan is great.  Avoid deep-fried Chinese like General Tso chicken, but stir-fry is good.  Chicken or beef chow fun is my go-to.  Much better than biscuits and pukey gravy.

Fluids and caffeine - alcohol (especially beer) is a diuretic.  If you drink 6 beers, you pee eight.  Part of the pain is dehydration.  If you're really hung over to the point of needing medical attention, they give you I.V. fluids (hydration and - surprise! Electrolytes).   Caffeine with the Advil you took will help with the headache. Some like adding sugar to the electrolyte mix, so Jolt Cola or Mountain Dew offer the most bang for your buck, but Coke/Pepsi etc. work too.  If you don't want the sugar, go for coffee.  If you think you're going to go back to bed, skip the caffeine and just have a tall glass of water.

Vitamins - now that you've got something in your stomach, you can address the fact that with all that drinking and peeing, you've also lost your water-soluble vitamins.  A B-complex with C will help a lot (and doctors will also give a vitamin B shot to people with severe hangovers).  If you don't have that, a multivitamin like a Centrum will help too.  Just don't take this stuff on an empty stomach, it's pretty miserable and nauseating.

Sleep - yes, sleep it off.  Another hour or two of sleep will help you feel a lot better.  So do the above things, skip the caffeine, and go back to bed.

Probably the best hangover cure is breastmilk. But even if you can't find one that's lactating, sucking on a tit will have a pronounced placebo effect.

An EMT friend of mine was always quick to point out that a hangover is mostly dehydration, coupled with acute vitamin deficiency. Alcohol, being a diuretic, tends to leech water soluble vitamins from your body (b, c, etc). A multivitamin (careful with the iron, iron + alcohol is not good for your liver (if you party hard and often, worth it to seek out a multivitamin sans iron)) and a quart or two of water and youre good to go.

That farkers hangover cure was a banana bag and O2 though, but us average schlubs dont exactly have access to that stuff on a day to day basis.

AVOID TYLENOL.

Acetaminophen is the leading cause of liver failure nowadays, including alcohol. Analgesics + alcohol arent a good idea anyway, ibuprofin + alcohol is bad for your stomach, same for asprin, nasids+alcohol are probably bad somehow too... Opiates are probably the safest (long term) bet for a hangover, but not if youre still drunk. No real long term effects like ulcers or liver damage, but those short term effects (severe respiratory and cardiac depression) can be a biatch. Not that ive never taken a percocet leftover from dental work and had a big greasy breakfast to cure a hangover...

Being an alcoholic, I can tell you, that hangovers are the reason all true alcoholics start drinking when they wake up. They need to feel better. So they drink a little to feel better. Now that they are feeling better....Why not have another...and another. Pass out. Wake up. Rinse. Repeat. And there you have it. Best advice---don't drink to feel better. Feel like crap so that you remember to drink in moderation if at all.

Yeah it's not. Had the same experience with my bro-in-law's place last week(couple days before x-mas). Luckily we didn't have to stay very long.

After we got home from dinner I broke out the half gallon of vodka and played halo until I passed out. Was a good night.

SockMonkeyHolocaust: These guys are weak. Im 18, been straight edge since freshman year, and it wasn't because it was some bullshiat fad. Straight Edge is a foundation, it's a title that is to be carried by those with the heart and determination to keep their flag flying through the hardest weather. Too many kids claim edge these days, thinking that it's something they can do for a short period of time. Militant Straight Edge, that's all bullshiat put forth by those who don't understand. I go to shows, I mosh, I love it, but i never farking attack people because they have different beliefs. Being Straight Edge, doesn't mean that you're a farking drug fighting vigilanty, it means that you have chosen to live a life of purity and commitment. All in all, selling out is for the weak. All these guys are doing is making excuses for themselves, you couldnt keep the edge, then you never were. You broke because you thought that Straight Edge was getting a bad wrap... then instead of quiting, why not do what you said you did before when you became edge... be an individual. Just because there are edgers farking some dude up for lighting a smoke doesn't mean you have too. These guys are the exact opposite of Straight Edge... farking mindless sheep who do nothing but follow.

After extensive research into alcohol sciences, I have come to the conclusion that it is a combination of two factors.

1> Dehydration
2> Electrolyte imbalance

Alcohol has a tendency to dehydrate you while at the same time a loss of electrolytes occur. The solution is to drink 1oz of water per oz of alcohol, and in addition to a multivitamin, OR 1oz Pedialyte per oz of alcohol. If this is done the same night of the drinking, then no hangover will occur.

flamingboar: DON'T DRINK IN THE FIRST PLACE!


Or, don't drink too much. New Year's Eve is amateur night. Those of us who are professional drinkers know our limit and never have hangovers. All of the amateurs who don't know their limit and think they can go out and hang with the big boys one night a year without the constant, unrelenting training it takes to stay in top form? They get what they deserve. And it certainly isn't my sympathy.
