If I've been drinking a lot I will usually take an ibuprofen and drink a bunch of gatorade before bed and then keep some gatorade next to my bed, to take a pull off of every time I wake up during the night and to chug first thing in the morning. If I still have a headache, I'll pop a couple more ibuprofen. The majority of the time, this prevents any hangover symptoms. And when I do have some, it's usually just a mild headache that's gone quickly, no biggie.

The worst part for me in the last few years (in my late thirties now) is the crushing shame that I'll experience the next day if I get really drunk. Even when I haven't done anything embarrassing at all when drunk. I can't explain it, but it really sucks. Enough so that I don't binge drink any more.

I have been drunk to the point of a hangover three times in my life. I have found that the best cure for my own hangover is a nice cup of tea in the morning with a large, greasy breakfast (fried eggs, sausage, hash browns fried in bacon fat with sharp cheddar cheese, a good bagel with a buttload of cream cheese smeared all over it). By the time the teapot is empty and breakfast is consumed, the body is so focused on not shiatting itself and keeping blood flowing through cholesterol-packed arteries that the hangover doesn't even register.

Coffee? Terrible idea.

Best place for such a breakfast as I have described (besides making it at home--but who wants to cook with a hangover?) is that typical American small-town diner.

Consequently, the worst thing I can do for a hangover: black coffee, reconstituted powdered eggs, grits, limp bacon, toast with butter and jelly, and two cheese omelets. Made that mistake once in grad school--the cafeteria was otherwise quite good. Ended up a migraine and a prescription for extra-extra-strength ibuprofen. And a note from the campus infirmary that I couldn't make it to class that day and that night.

Clearly, you have never thought in the middle of a drunken stupor that urinating in the middle of a university's quad is a good idea. I have done so, and although I do not regret it, every time I see a dead plant in that planter I think to myself "Did I do that?"

2 aspirin and water before bed.  Wake up and have a drink and eat greasy food.  Preferably something high in protein like a hamburger with a fried egg on top.  Drink more water and take it easy.  Then when it's gone, curse getting older.

Yup, aspirin is the only stuff you should take.  Unless it's something like vicodin or oxy but then you're doing it for other reasons

The headline also brings to mind this song:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kyXz6eMCj2k

I've been drinking long enough to know that the real cure for a hangover is time.  Drink water and eat and sleep if you can, but only time will fix things.

OTOH, drinking more is a pretty good short term fix, but you'll still probably be hung over after you finish curing your hangover with moar booze.

I only take pills recreationally or if I'm really sick from something besides a hangover.

Then again, I'm blessed by hardly ever getting a headache.

I got a prescription for sleeping pills once because I was really having trouble sleeping.  The doctor gave me some non-abusable drug and told me I could feel free to take 2 or 3 if one wasn't doing the job for me.  I took 3 pills and started reading about it on the internet and suddenly started feeling all the possible side effects.  I'm pretty sure it was just the placebo effect, but the farking pills didn't put me to sleep - just gave me all the side effects.

That was kind of weird because one of the possible side effects was priapism and another side effect was limp dick.

A couple breaths of pure oxygen is an immediate hangover cure.

Wrencher: A couple breaths of pure oxygen is an immediate hangover cure.


There are clinics popping up across America that claim to cure hangovers.  I think the first one was in Las Vegas.  Basically for $150 or something they'll give you oxygen and IV drips filled with vitamins.

I don't know how well they work, but it puts some perspective on drinking.  For $10, you can get drunk as hell and for $150 someone else can cure your hangover.

Actually, one in Las Vegas ranges from $99 to $239 for the "Rapture Package" which includes - in bold print:   New! Potent mix of Amino Acids to combat inflammation and fatigue

What a scam.

Here's what you should do:

1:  Don't drink more unless you have the whole day off and can recuperate tomorrow.  It probably will just make tomorrow worse.
2:  Drink a bunch of water.
3:  Puke if you have to - you'll get rid of shiat farking up your stomach.  Then drink more water.
4:  Eat something - anything.  Depending on your condition this may be limited to crackers, but have some bacon and eggs if you can.  Or a steak.  Or anything - you should really eat something though.  Bananas sometimes refresh me.
5:  If you think you can keep it down, eat a vitamin pill, especially vitamin B.
6:  Patience.  Some hangovers are so bad that they last all farking day.  Really bad ones can last longer.
7:  Go back to bed and sleep if you can.  If you can't sleep, just lie there and keep your eyes closed and think about whatever makes you happy.

Unless you're 13 I don't buy the "only 3 hangovers" thing. However the best way to deal with hangovers is to drink a lot. I find if I get drunk every night, by the end of the week I stop having hangovers. So I suppose I could buy that you had 3 hangovers at the start, and have been on a lifelong binge ever since, in which case carry on.

It was irresponsible of the article to end on health advice from the NHS suggesting people just don't drink. They had a perfectly good thing going, offering tips and advice for every day problems, then throw in this extremist nonsense at the end.

Creidiki: What? No love for medical MJ?


It's weird - when I was younger, I used to think the cure for a hangover was to drink Coca Cola and smoke a bowl, then go out and get a hamburger.

Nowadays, I avoid the caffeine and sugar from Coke and I don't even want to smoke pot, but my pot is recreational and not medical so maybe there's a difference.

Right now I'm smoking something called "Critical Hog".  WTF, do they just make these names up or what?  Actually, I suspect the guy at the pot store did make that up because I don't remember buying "Critical Hog".  I thought it was called something else and I don't see "Critical Hog" listed as something they sell on their website.

When I used to buy pot from friends and friends of friends, usually it didn't have any fancy names.  It was just pot.  Sometimes the dealer would tell me over the phone that "It gets you high", which meant he had some shiatty Mexican brick weed, but it would get you high if you smoked enough.  And it would get you high so it had that going for it.

Now that I buy my pot in stores licensed by the state I don't know what to think.  With the black market it's like "This is what I'm selling.  I don't know what it's called or where it came from, it's marijuana.  And I only have this one kind of marijuana."

I go to the marijuana store now and they ask what I want and they pull out 4 or 5 jars packed with gigantic juicy looking nuggets.  I got the Critical Hog because I just threw my hands up in the air and asked they guy behind the counter which one he would get.

HOTD only delays the inevitable. The only real cure is not drinking or time. I don't know,of anything else that actually works. I do know what makes hangovers orders of magnitude worse. Aging. Teens and early 20s no hangovers, late twenties mild hangovers, early thirties severe hangovers, late 30s skull splitters

I'm 31 and I've had maybe five or six hangovers ever. I drank a shiat ton one time when I was 19, it messed me up bad, and after that I just didn't binge drink much at all. I still have a couple every now and then plus some water if I go over that.

I ended up being the DD a lot in college, which was cool. I got to hear a lot of hilarious conversations and they'd be funny all over again when I told them what they'd said later.
