As hung over as I am, that's bullshiat. Best way to cure a hangover is to drink water and go back to sleep.

And the only way an English breakfast could help is by making you instantly vomit and getting it over with faster. Who the fark eats baked beans for breakfast?

Water.
 
2014-07-05 09:56:45 AM  
Got up an hour ago. Had half a bottle of water, half a bottle of Gatorade. Now I'm going to have a glass of wine and jump in the pool.
I don't feel too awful.

The English. Other things you could find in a "Full English" include black pudding, white pudding, mushrooms, and in Scotland, haggis could be included.  I couldn't eat all that food in the morning anyway, even if it was all things I enjoyed.  I can't eat a full meal until at least noon.  Breakfast is either a meal replacement shake or a glass of pineapple-orange juice.

You didn't drink enough.

If you have access to potable water, you have the best and only "hangover cure" there is. Also, if you just drank adequate water along with your alcohol, you probably wouldn't have the hangover in the first place.

/although if we're going to make up total bullshiat "cures" for what is basically dehydration, I wish people would at least get more inventive than "buy our fake pills" and "eat shiatty food" (neither of which will help, aside from the water you get from consuming the shiatty food and water you presumably take the pills with).
//just once, I want to see a hangover cure that involves smearing cream cheese and hot sauce on your walls in complex patterns, shouting random invocations, and lying with your head pointing north and feet pointing south while reciting every other letter of the alphabet backwards
///just once.

That's entirely possible.
I'm going to get an earlier start today.

I have done that. Works very well provided you use the correct hot sauce.

no hangover here missed all the festivities.  back on the night of the third, woke up hurting, thought it was the food I ate at the new Japanese steakhouse and sushi place.  Yesterday I got to the point I could only lay in the fetal position.  Go to the er and it turns out that my appendix wanted its independence from my body.  Wish I had went in earlier though.  didn't rupture but when he pulled it out, it was leaking so it was pretty darn close.

Don't be ridiculous. Smearing that stuff on the walls doesn't do anything. You have to smear it on your forehead. The capsaicin draws out the toxins and the cream cheese absorbs them.

SauronWasFramed: The best cure for a hangover is to chug a beer.


Because just drinking water or eating food re-activates the alcohol still in your body (somehow) and makes you drunk again, only without the euphoria.  But drinking beer tells your body that alcohol is on the way so it doesn't feel like shiat.

Ouch. At least it's a quick and tidy laparoscopic surgery these days.

I can't stop pooping. Beer wrecks my intestines.

Asipirin + electrolytes. Sometimes sleep, but sometimes that's not possible.

Alka-seltzer and a big fat bowl. Worked for me over the last 38 years.

38 years of smoking pot  - what a long strange trip it's been!

Pretty much.  Get hydrated and sleep it off.

Also you can tell this was theorized by a "professor of psychology" and not a physician (no offense to pyschologists).  If the issue is glucose metabolism, specifically fried food would not be the answer.  Carbs yes, but you wouldn't need to fry them and eggs and sausage and such would be unnecessary.

Also, thanks "hangover researcher" for confirming that a pain med will help with pain.

What an informative article!

Our snaggletooth little Limey buddies across the pond can be so weird sometimes.

Everybody knows it's not the full but the 1/8 breakfast of Gatorade, then a big glass of water and Tylenol. A big fat blunt doesn't hurt either. Along with a little poosay.

Something sweet--lots of sugar to get your blood sugar up.
Something VERY spicy--to release natural pain killers.
Then hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.

Best real cure? A hardcore, sweaty workout. A couple of games of racquetball will do it and is over in an hour.

He didn't so laprascopic his take on it was as much pain as I was in it could burst and he wanted to err on the side of caution besides I am 42 and that is the first time I have had surgery in my life.

FTA "And the other good news? Hangovers decline with age, he says"

I'm not a drinker, but that's not what I hear. I always though hangover decline with age, not because they get less awful, but because people learn how much they can drink without over doing it.

/but when my older siblings and friend do over do it, I always hear how it so bad and that they never use to get them as kids.

If you can play an hour of racquetball first thing out of bed you are not hungover.

Holy hell.  Hangovers have definitely gotten worse as I've aged.    Over 20+ years of binge drinking under my belt and it's gotten to the point that I'd rather not drink than suffer a hangover.

Maybe I'm just getting old or I don't drink as often?

 I've tried all of the fark remedies over the years, so thanks for a refresher on preventative measures.
One of my favorites is the pedialyte.  Get the grape, get it icy cold and it's not half bad.   But mostly, if you can remember to drink some water while boozing it helps a lot.  That's the hard part!
 
2014-07-05 05:55:44 PM  
Yes on the pedialyte. It's been my go to for years.

Also, until you take a month or more off, your tolerance to both alcohol and aldehydes increases enormously the first few months of hard drinking. The cleanup crew is always on standby and your liver hires more temps every time you drink. Naturally, as you age and break down, everything starts working less effectively, so the toll on the body from a binge gets harder and harder too.

Yeah, this article is a crock.

One of my friends made a concoction of 2 parts Gatorate and 1 part 190 proof.   Got forget-how-to-sit-up, barking at ants drunk like I haven't been since I was 19.  Next morning, felt GREAT.  Just fine.  Like the previous day never happened.

So, er, drink the Gatorate the night before, not after the fact.
