Funny, my mom always gave me 7-Up when I was sick.

Yep

Of course it was the original old-school 7 Up, not the stuff that's sold nowadays.

Old-school Vernors here. Same caveat.

This. Holy farking this, there are very few things I get OCD-ish about, this is one of them.

In my extensive experience of hangovers I've found that the best cure is a Bloody Mary and a full English Breakfast/pizza/curry.

Both drinks in addition to yellow Gatorade, for us. Bullshiat about the Sprite, though; a ton of water and a handful of vitamins are where it's at.
 
2013-10-09 05:05:34 AM  
Oxycontin or some other badass painkiller.  THAT'S the best cure for a hangover.  So to hell with your Sprite and old family recipes.
 
2013-10-09 05:05:47 AM  
7-up(and the far inferior Sprite) has always been my go to hangover drink.

Now that I'm getting older, lemon-lime alka-seltzer has replaced coffee as my morning drink.

About 16oz of Pepsi, 32oz of water, and a pound of the greasiest, most disgusting diner lasagna you can find. That always works for me.

I've found out that the best hangover cure is to just stay drunk all the time.I'm testing that theory now and it seems to be working.Why is this room spinning?
 
2013-10-09 05:24:14 AM  
Irn Bru. It works.
 
2013-10-09 05:25:14 AM  
Gallon of water. Gallon of Vernor's. Cutting the lawn to start sweating. Screw hungover girlfriend. Eat omelet. This combo has worked for me for a dozen years now.
 
2013-10-09 05:32:56 AM  
Stay well hydrated, drink good stuff,and you never, or at least I, have to worry about a hangover. A little ibuprofen never hurt too.
 
2013-10-09 05:33:38 AM  
I can count on one hand the "real" hangovers I've had, but I drink pretty heavily on weekends (Half the time I've no memory of the end of my Friday nights, although I never had the best memory to begin with)

As with most things, it's probably prevention that's the best cure. Don't drink mostly spirits, if you do, hydrate while you go. Don't forget the big 'ole mug of water by the bed; been leaving that on the bedside table for the last 15 years of drinking. Refill it if you get up to piss at 5am.

The few bastard hangovers I've had have come from the combination of whiskey and travel. Or alcohol plus substances that keep you up past your usual alcohol endurance, such that you drink a whole lot more.

Also, I end to find hangovers are mitigated if the night out drinking was loaded up with the good positive empathy of people genuinely enjoying each others company. Your body feels shiat the next day, maybe, but it just doesn't matter because emotionally you're all good. Or something.

/not sure where I'm going with this, 'tis time for another beer methinks. or bedtime. another beer. work will handle.

The best cure is water. Everything else is placebo. Every home remedy is just a fancy way of getting you more water

For me the best result was water and a teaspoon of salt.

It's funny.  You'd think something as annoying as a hangover (or blacking out or puking everywhere) would change people's drinking habits.  Maybe I should drink more water and cut back a little on the booze so I don't feel like shiat for 12 hours tomorrow?  Nah!

That applies to anything. People don't think about consequences while they are ingesting something that makes them feel good now. be it booze, drugs, sex, food, etc..

Oh look good news.

as we age our brains shrink, so there is more room for it to swell before it hits the bone.

Water until you're peeing as much and as regularly as the night before.
 
2013-10-09 07:19:05 AM  
A gatorade before bed. Its worked for me for years
 
2013-10-09 07:26:12 AM  
Sprite is also one of the greatest post-sex drinks. All that heavy breathing leads to dry mouth, and the citrus and bubbles take care of that in a most refreshing way.

/always has a 20oz in the fridge ready to move to the nightstand.
 
2013-10-09 07:29:58 AM  
I've always found that the best remedy is lemonade and McDonalds cheeseburgers.

Why not just take cyanide capsules?  It's a faster less horrible death.

Those were the days... A cold Vernors on a hot day would make your eyes water with it's gingery goodness.

I brush my teeth right before I go to sleep when I've been drinking heavily, and follow that with a glass of water and some tylenol.

But I've gotten my tolerance up to a point where it takes a shiat-ton of beer to get me "drunk" anymore, so if I'm drinking to forget, there just alleviate the pain.  Nothing stops it outright, nor the alcohol shiats that visit the next day.
 
2013-10-09 08:10:20 AM  
Lots of water before bed, and then when you wake up. Remember to take a piss before you pass out. If you drank a lot, you won't even need to piss when you wake up. Your body will soak the water up like a sponge.

Run along now, the grown-ups are talking...

Small protein shake with a handful of vitamins, then one cup of black coffee. Then I eat something small and greasy (microwave breakfast sandwiches are perfect) and finally I start drinking water slowly and regularly until the hangover is gone and I am peeing clear.

How 'old school' are we talking here?  7-up made with cane sugar, or 7-up with litium salts?

Smoke ganja, avoid feeling like shiat.

Do you mean to tell me they have taken the lithium out of my 7up? It's an outrage!

Oh good call, a pub lasagna with chips is my wife's favourite.  The only issue I have with it is the portion is too small.  When I'm hungover I seem to be able to eat far more than usual, and I'm greedy at the best of times.

Gordon Bennett: Irn Bru. It works.


I'm working in Glasgow at the moment and have been tempted.  Just what the hell is Irn Bru?!
