Eating, hydration and aspirin before bed

I have to say that quitting alcohol has made a vast improvement in my mornings. And waistline.

Stay drunk.

It's the withdrawals that hurt.

Eat beforehand, and have a glass of water after every drink.

alechemist: Eating, hydration and aspirin before bed


And to emphasize the point: Aspirin, NOT Tylenol or probably anything with acetaminophen!

Vitamin water (specifically the revive "flavor") is extremely helpful

'My ideal pre-drinking meal is grilled teriyaki salmon with sweet potato mash and veggies.'

Yeah great, let me check my fridge...

I always ate one of these before drinking in my early twenties. Still costs about 1USD, for what is essentially a 1 pound Twinkie.

Sure, it can become a vicious cycle but there is plenty of evidence that alcohol protects you from the effects of acetaldehyde. The 'hair of the dog' isn't a fictitious concept.

the best thing for a hangover is drinking the night before.

It's not the hangover I'm worried about catching from drinking at a bar.

If it helps you to worry less, they don't use the wire brush to treat Chlamydia anymore.

That's not very big of you for all the virtue you show in the main tab.

People with STDs have a right to happiness/sex/love too.

Be better than this.

Eat beforehand, especially bread or pizza to absorb the alcohol.

On occasion, after drinking heavy IPAs, ice had a "hops hangover", which is a little different from a typical hangover. For instance, your pillow reeks of hops when you awaken. Real headachey, but not the same pounding as a regular headache. Also, these can happen while imbibing much less alcohol than would typically result in a hangover. I think it may be an allergic reaction to that particular hop variety, or batch of hops.

Drop a couple of those sports vitamins with 1000% daily dose of b vitamins before you go out

Trust me, I'm a professional drinker

I knew after an extended saturday night of drinking a couple weeks ago that i finally met my match and since then, taken and will continue to take an extended holiday from drinking too many..well, everything, period. only on weekends, but just was going way too hard.  what made me realize it?  was it the every sunday, awful hangover and exhaustion? no, although it should have been.  it was going to the gym that sunday and after about 40 minutes on the treadmill, I could smell the beer coming out of me.  like, the smell of that half glass sitting in the sink.

was kind of ashamed to be honest.  I always "pay my penance" and exercise even though i don't feel like it the next day, but i was seriously grossed out by the state of it when i realized it was me.  Since then, no more.  at least not for quite a while, thats for sure.

Its certainly made my saturday nights more boring though!

if you drink a lot on a regular basis you don't get hang overs anymore. it's like magic.

unless you drink crappy liquor. that will do you in overtime. bad vodka in specific.

Curious, isn't it?  We rail against big pharma for their role in the opioid crisis, but alcohol abuse, which has destroyed far more lives over a much greater period of time, is a time-honored joke on Fark.  And I can't recall ever seeing a word of criticism about the companies that produce the alcohol, aside from the usual "Budweiser is pisswater" type of comments.

Went fine. No hangover. Too many people for my tastes, but all double vaxed and most boosted so there's that.

I blame the industrial revolution. Companies used to give people 'rum breaks' instead of 'coffee breaks'. Add to that government mandates and wives that don't drink. Alcohol has ever been the problem; society is the problem. that's what destroys lives but fine, be Debbie downer.

How many people are prescribed alcohol by doctors as a way of treating their medical issues?  Your bartender might prescribe you a drink or so if you have a bad day or are feeling down, but doctors aren't supposed to be the same as any other kind of salesperson, and bartenders aren't getting kickbacks from different spirits makers to push you on to their products.

So, it's less curious, and more "the fark is wrong with you?"

There was an Asian bakery near a place I worked in Rockville, MD, that would bake some odd but tasty stuff.  One I'll never forget was a spongy cake roll will a cream filling and powdered dried pork.  Tasted like a bacon-flavored Twinkie.  Seriously, it worked.  The powdering was key so that the salty melted into your mouth as the same time as the sweet.

I don't know if that's an "authentic" recipe or they had a demented baker, be they touched my soul.

Are we bombarded by ads 24/7 that encourage us to take opioids, like we are to drink alcohol?

Let me guess, that "Please drink responsibly" message that's in tiny text at the bottom of every advertisement exonerates the alcohol industry.

Ummm, yeah, you were.  Or were you not aware of the very large advertising campaigns for pain relief for years until the Opioid Crisis hit full swing.

And now, you're trying to equate "advertisments" with "doctors".  Do you have the slightest grasp of how absurd that is?

What's bad vodka?

Because super cheap vodkas tend to be the purest.

I can never tell the difference in vodka. Rum, whiskey yeah but all vodka tases pretty much the same to me. So buy the cheap stuff.

I don't know about opioids specifically but there are tons of ads for prescription medication, which never made sense to me. If your Dr. needs to be told what to prescribe, he's not a very good Dr. That's not even legal in a lot of countries.

Cheap beer like PBR hurts me more. I also stay away from drinks with a heavy sugar content.
