Water, stupid.

And if you're drinking enough to get a hangover, you're drinking too much.

If you want to enjoy liquor, you're welcome at my bar. If you want to get shiatfaced, stay home and puke in the privacy of your own hovel.

drink lots of water during the drinking night...then two huge glasses before bed with 3 Advil and a B-complex.

Also during the night..eat plenty.

That does it for me..I wake up just fine.

Drink homebrew (or hefeweisens). Live yeast is a good source of B vitamins, which are depleted by alcohol (which may be one cause of hangovers).

Water.

Drinking until I puke means my hangover won't be as bad.

Millions of Americans will suffer hangovers on New Years Day. News at 11.

Take lots of acetaminophen while drinking. You still might get one or two headaches, but pretty soon you won't have to worry about hangovers anymore ;)

Sounds like a recipe for killing your liver. :)

Something that has worked for me 90% of the time and I have tried on other people it works.

- Lots and lots of water. You get massively dehydrated when you drink alcohol. Drinking water before and after you wake up helps tremendously. Probably the one thing I can recommend that you don't have to buy.

- Chlorella and lots of it. Its a natural detoxifier that is excellent for guarding your body against the ill effects of alcohol. Google "chlorella alcohol" and check out the first link that comes up.

- Milk thistle to detoxify your liver.

- Any type of multivitamin. I usually drink barley grass juice instead since it has a huge amount of vitamins / minerals I need in a natural form. Your body needs this to replace all the vitamins / minerals leeched from your body.

Other things I take are an antioxidant supplement, something call hydropure? that aids in the reabsorbsion of water.

If I do this before I drink I don't get hung over at all.. if I do it when I wake up the next day I gotta sleep for another 2 hours before I feel absolutely fine.

I've been using this for years and it works for me and my friends.

I find not going to sleep piss drunk is a surefire cure.
 
2006-01-01 1:05:12 AM  
6 ounces of water for every drink, with a good B multivitamin just before you go to bed, follwed by a greasy breakfast (or cheeseburger) with a fresh fruit juice the next day has never failed me.
 
2006-01-01 1:06:20 AM  
I'll second (or third) the drink lots of water thing. I dehydrate easily, so I know the signs, and nothing, and I mean nothing, prevents a hangover like drinking lots of water and/or gatorade. Hangovers are pretty much all dehydration, so you keep your system well-lubricated, you don't have to worry about it. Rule I've found helpful is a glass per serving, but ymmv.

/If only there was a cure for beer goggles.

I work at a bar.

So I am really getting a kick out of most of these replies.

Some of you guys are very good at making it sound like you know what you are talking about.

But trust me.... You don't.

I think you just want to make yourself sound smart, when in reality you dont know what you are talking about.

This is how bad info gets passed around.

If you dont know about the topic....Dont make yourself sound like you do.

Cuz some Farkers belive anything they hear.
 
2006-01-01 1:09:14 AM  
Take one in a glass of water before you go to bed. You may still feel a little crappy when you wake up, but it will go away quickly with a few cups of green tea.

If you're lying in your bed and the room starts spinning, stand up and start spinning in the opposite direction!

somebody posts this same response on almost every subject, just substitute "I work at a bar" for whatever subject is being discussed.

and btw, the answer IS water :P

Meh, believe it or don't believe it... what I said works for me and my friends thats all that really matters anyways.

Screw that hair-of-the-dog nonsense. A hangover is (mostly) dehyrdration coupled with a headache. Gatorade and ibuprofen won't cure it, but it sure makes you feel better a whole lot quicker.

LookOutForThatTree!: Talk to these...

Consuming what's in pic B helps me to better talk to what's in pic A. It's one of those circle type things that needs to be completed, but end the end, I don't get laid.

I work for the department of cliches, redundancy, motherfarking cliches you should know about, and redundancy department.

Forget the whole acetominophen thing. Doesn't sober you up or cure a hangover at all; it does mess up your liver much quicker.

There's no way to sober up faster, and anyone endorsing the "hair of the dog" thing is an eejit. Only time will sober you up faster.
 
2006-01-01 1:27:03 AM  
I gotta work at 8am tomorrow.

As I work at home, I figured "hair of the dog that bit you" would do.

/water?

tynlnol is not good if you dirnk, casuses liver damage.

There's only one cure for a hangover.
Brought to you by a U.S. Army Medic I met long ago.

1 Liter IV Saline drip.
15 Minutes of 100% Oxygen.
1 Cup of "Field Coffee"

good as new in 30 minutes.
 
2006-01-01 1:32:58 AM

Tylenol is acetaminophen, so it's been said... twice.
 
2006-01-01 1:36:59 AM  
I stopped drinking 14 years ago on Thanksgiving. Outside of the fact that I don't get hangovers anymore, I've also saved about 30K.

I still go to bars to drink Red Bull and play pinball tho.

crazy_gaijin

spelling is not my strong point, and Tylenol is a lot easier to spell

/sorry for the confusion

You mean paracetamol?

/contrary yank
 
2006-01-01 1:38:51 AM  
Tylenol is out. Too hard on the liver. Advil isn't as effective on headaches.

Aspirin. Good, old-fashioned aspirin. Two to four tablets depending on body mass, a little calcium antacid, and LOTS of water.

gatorade and amphetamines on waking, then switch to pot once out of bed.
 
2006-01-01 2:02:50 AM  
According to the Irish the best cure for a hangover is more whiskey. Yes I am Irish, and yes that is what a lot of the drunks do in the morning.

KRSESQ: I don't get it. You have to let me in on the joke.


Apparently, from what I can interpret, it's a cliched repetition of some idiot's post long ago in the dawn of time.

promises, promises
 
2006-01-01 2:04:24 AM  
My personal cure is to drink Pedialyte(sp), you know the stuff you give to babies, right as i go to sleep.
