Lots of stupid advice.  Do you want to drink a lot but not actually get drunk?  Ingest oil or greasy food ahead of time.  Although if you want to drink a lot and not get drunk, wtf? Why are you even drinking?
Are you currently drinking a lot?  Try to alternate alcoholic drinks with water. Hangover symptoms are mostly dehydration.
Are you waking up and hungover? Probably because you didn't alternate alcoholic drinks with water.  Drink a pint or two of water, preferably with vitamins/electrolytes like Emergen-C, then go back to bed for an hour and let them kick in.

Mashed potatoes?  Really?

Actually, no; I've never heard that.

Even if you don't alternate, 500mg of an otc painkiller along with a pint of water before passing out works wonders.

Just not Tylenol.  Your liver will thank you.  Well, despite the other hell you're putting it through.

I have a friend who is a paramedic.

If you're willing to brave getting an IV from a drunk paramedic at 2am, there is absolutely no substitute for a bag or two of saline or Ringer's lactate.

/no YOU have a drinking problem

So much this. Dehydration plus really sweet drinks with sugars (from fruit or added sugar) are the worst. Butterscotch liqueur, Jaeger, Aftershock, all those sorts give me the absolute worst headaches.

If my medic friend isn't around, my usual routine on an epic bender is to drink as much water as possible before bed.

Like 3-4 pints if possible. Almost as much as your stomach will hold.

Yeah, you're gonna get up and piss a couple of times, but you need that water.


In the morning, if you still feel like sh*t, a hot shower and a wank will do you a lot of good.

/I can quit anytime I want
 
2013-12-24 03:53:42 PM  
The water treatment is really all you need. As noted already:
Drink water at 100% the rate you are drinking beer and you will be fine.
/For stronger drinks (Scotch, never the blended crap) it is 8oz water per shot.

I just drink my rye with ice and water.  I figure I might as well get the booze and the hydration in one fell swoop.

It doesn't work. Only a seasoned professional knows how to deal with this. It requires a lot of experience and there is no recipe booklet. And midi-chlorians.

Pickles. All you need are pickles. The Russians and Eastern Europeans became raging alcoholics with the help of the lowly pickle.
 
2013-12-24 05:24:21 PM  
I know this is fark and all, but you could try and not drinking until you are fall down or passed out drunk.

Hmmm.. Is this why I instinctively want french fries when I drink?

Actually, mashed potatoes mixed with grated cheddar and chilisauce is best, as the capsicum kickstarts your metabolism. (yes, I'm anecdotal here)

Thank you. If you're getting a hangover, reducing the amount of ingested alcohol might be a good idea.

If only, I knew that it was going to be that kind of party.

If I eat before I drink, it takes longer/more booze to get me drunk. If I want to avoid a hangover, I eat after I drink, that way while I sleep the food has a chance to digest and replace the alcohol in my system. I always wake up feeling sober and ready to go.
 
2013-12-24 09:00:00 PM  
A big bowl of rice and a lot of water before you go to sleep. That is all.
 
2013-12-24 09:42:15 PM  
Technically, Vodka is like mashed potatoes, right?
Then throw in some Orange Juice for Vitamin C.
Perfect base before I start drinking.
 
2013-12-24 10:39:43 PM  
this is of no use to me I only eat mashed potatoes AFTER I've been drinking

Done in one.
Drink water, have some b-complex. Have some fats to slow the absorbtion of booze.

When you wake up in the morning and keep drinking instead of a hangover, it's a carry over.

Potato vodka with mashed potatoes, potato salad and pyrogies. You are welcome :)

Drink stout and study it out.

I agree with the drinking a stomachfull of water and downing several hundred milligrams of ibuprofen just before sleep, but I would add a nice fat bong hit too. Then recharge the water and bong hit, and maybe the ibuprofen, each time you have to get up to piss.

I got to a point where absolutely nothing worked for hangovers, so I gave up the booze. I don't miss hangovers.

Assuming you chew your food, all potatoes are mashed by the time they get to your belly.
