Me and my girls went out for a drink or two, or more accurately 8 with a few shots, best cures for a hangover internet?

#2 Posted by Claude (16254 posts) -

Hydrate and sleep it off.

#3 Posted by TheHumanDove (2523 posts) -

Cold water, cold coke, mcdonalds, and quiet gaming sessions in a dark room.

#4 Posted by CrazyBagMan (842 posts) -

Lots of water while you're drinking and even more later.

#5 Posted by Laurentech (127 posts) -

Vomit once or twice.

#6 Posted by Starfishhunter9 (369 posts) -

Water and washing your mouth out with brushing and mouth wash so it doesn't taste like shit later.

#7 Posted by MentalDisruption (1635 posts) -

Plenty of water helps me usually.

#8 Posted by xamon0288 (5 posts) -

lots and lots of water. Also force yourself to eat and if you feel like puking, do it. Then eat more and keep drinking water, it works very well.

Lots of water and a shower

#10 Posted by jking47 (1211 posts) -

Greasy fast food.

#11 Posted by freakin9 (1121 posts) -

I usually shove food in my face at a rapid pace. Good times.

I heard an old fairytale about how eating before you go out to get drunk prevents a hangover 
So that's what I've been doing and the last time I was hung over I was 14 or 15. Most boring first day of the new year, ever

#13 Posted by Bobafeet (64 posts) -

@Hizang: No lie, works for me every time, Pedialyte before bed and after you get up. Hydrates the hell out of you, and you can even get it in Popsicle form.

#14 Posted by Levio (1784 posts) -

Spin till you puke, then post pics. But I don't really care if it cures your hangover or not.

#15 Posted by iam3green (14390 posts) -

drink water. it's what i am doing right now. i'm kind of tired from drinking but drinking water.

#16 Posted by Bandit_Fox (143 posts) -

Coconut water: Ryan Davis recommended, User approved!

Seriously, it works wonders. Also, the chocolate version (as pictured above) is the best)

#17 Posted by Hizang (8532 posts) -

@Bandit_Fox: I hate coconut though, but thanks guys for recommending water.

#18 Posted by GorillaMoPena (2141 posts) -

Never stop drinking.

#19 Posted by MachoFantastico (4700 posts) -

Water all the way, helps rehydrate the body and most importantly the brain which helps if you have an headache.

#20 Posted by pubbles (142 posts) -

More alcohol - hair of the dog that bit you.

Seriously, it works... but then you kind of just get into a non-stop state of being kind of drunk and thats called alcoholism... so.. y'know...

#21 Posted by Bandit_Fox (143 posts) -

@Hizang: I hate coconut too. I also avoid regular coconut water.

This stuff tastes like thin chocolate milk. They've got it at Walgreens and Trader Joes. Just sayin'

#22 Posted by RollingZeppelin (1975 posts) -

Take a multivitamin and drink lots of water before you go to bed.

#23 Posted by anywhereilay (145 posts) -
@pubbles: Hair of the dog doesn't work all the time. I've had numerous occasions where I've done that and just been drunk with a headache/hangover. I haven't had a sober day since Monday, but I sure as hell have felt like shit throughout periods in the week.
#24 Posted by Claude (16254 posts) -

Fuck me.

#25 Posted by Hector (3365 posts) -

A cold shower works great!

@Claude: These bloody kids these days, eh, EH, EEHHHHH!?!?!?

All we had in my day was Victory Gin and getting shot in the back of the head.

#27 Edited by RedCream (705 posts) -

Plenty of water or Gatorade if you can.

Water binds the alcohol you ingested and flushes it out of your system.

#28 Posted by MideonNViscera (2257 posts) -

3 Advil extra strength gel caps and water.

#29 Posted by TheUnsavedHero (1255 posts) -

@Hizang: Ever heard of a Prairie Oyster? I tried it once after a really long night of drinking. It worked for me but, holy shit I never want to try that again. Only in the most dire of hangovers would I entertain the notion of drinking that again. Thanks Cowboy Bebop!

#30 Posted by Sanj (2391 posts) -

A lot of groaning and rubbing the sides of my head while my face in planted on the table seems to be working for me right now.

#31 Posted by Sweep (8863 posts) -

Drink a load of water before you go to sleep, I always force myself to down a pint of the stuff if I need to be up early the next morning, and make sure you sleep with some kind of fruit juice next to your bed. When you wake up at 5 or 6 am feeling dehydrated it's because your blood-sugar is low, so a few gulps of fruit juice will sort you out and should let you get back to sleep pretty quickly. When you wake up I'd recommend more fruit juice and always more water (a couple of pints at least).

A greasy fry-up is cool because the fat will soak up any traces of alcohol you might have in your system but it's not particularly healthy so I've been avoiding that recently. Another misconception is that forcing yourself to vomit is somehow productive here but I can confirm that is not the case - it might help you fall asleep, but will simply make you more dehydrated and you will probably end up feeling worse in the long-run.

Personally I like to wake up and watch a David Attenborough with a cup of tea. I find his voice very theraputic when hungover.

Bacon and egg sandwich with a sausage roll stuffed inside. Worked wonders for me today!

#33 Posted by ShockD (2401 posts) -

Milk as far as I know.

Death metal played at an earsplitting volume and harsh bright lights.

#35 Edited by Falx (347 posts) -

Cold water, a little milk maybe, a quick snack like a sandwich and go back to sleep for an hour.

#36 Posted by Village_Guy (2579 posts) -

The best cure for a hangover is not to get one!

But if shit happens, then lots of water isn't bad.

#37 Posted by TaliciaDragonsong (8699 posts) -

Don't drink too much.
 
Coffee has been my fix me up for the few times I went over the limit.

#38 Posted by foggel (2763 posts) -

Best thing you can do is eat before going to sleep, but I guess it's too late for that now.

Good advice. I don't drink these days anymore, but back when I did, I usually followed similar recipe.

  1. Don't go to sleep if you're still "getting drunk" - i.e. you just had an alcoholic drink recently.
  2. Drink a bunch of water/orange juice and eat something before bed.
  3. When you wake up during the night/early morning, drink more and grab a few painkillers.
  4. Sleep until evening.

That usually does it. I often suffered from sensitive stomach during the day still, but usually only minor headache or none at all. And the best cure really is to delay going to bed as long as possible. Worst hangovers occur when you pass out or just go to bed in the midst of drinking.

#40 Posted by Philedius (204 posts) -

I always eat something and drink loads of water before going to sleep and again when I wake up and I almost never get a hangover, yet I drink way too much.

#41 Posted by Giefcookie (603 posts) -

As someone who has never been hungover, I recommend not drinking enough to get hungover!

#42 Posted by Scooper (7881 posts) -

Advice is a bit late now but I have tried several things and I find that a cold glass of water or a bottle of chilled water and go for a little walk outside, round the local park or something once and every 30 secs or so taking sips of water. The morning fresh air makes the feeling of being about to throw up get better and the water will attempt to hydrate you.

Also, if you gotta puke then puke because (especially if you've got as really bad hangover) then for the next 15 minutes you'll feel absolutely fine, in that time you chugg down loads of water and eat a load of toast or something before your start to feel sick again.

#43 Posted by Icemo (642 posts) -

Drink a LOT of water and before you go to sleep take one painkiller. That one painkiller before sleep does wonders.

Odd as it sounds, there's some truth in these "cures".

Sleeping on orange juice can give you an ulcer.
Since this is an after the fact hangover the best way is
Wake up. Remember what you did last night. Give up on that. Immediately slam a Gatorade. Wait 5 minutes. Take a shower. (The wait is important. Let it settle in. Read some news. See if anyone with your description is a headline). Brush your teeth. A lot of water.
The initial Gatorade is to spike your blood sugar. This allows you to start moving liquids in your body, both in and out, making room for some water after the shower.
Things not to do:
Don't take medicines(unless medically necessary). Your liver is at a weakened state and prone to being further damaged by the likes of Tylenol. Also the amount of liquids you are drinking could hinder some medicines.
Coffee will just make it so that you can further understand what your head is doing. Coffee only after the initial Gatorade.
Eating before hand would have worked better, so don't worry about that. Eat what you normally would with only slight bit more, your body is expending more energy now because...
Spend some time sweating. Maybe that shower is super hot. Of you sit on the bike for 10 mins. This is the only thing I've said I can't find proof for, but it helps to sweat it out.
Rumor: breathing through your mouth helps to rid the body of alcohol quicker because of more air flow out of the body. Not sure i buy that one though.

pretty accurate. Water, gatorade, and sleep.

#47 Posted by LiquidS (971 posts) -

Do some Speed or Coke plus some more booze.

Never stop partying.

#48 Posted by JacDG (2126 posts) -

I don't get hangovers, so I can't really help. The only thing that happens to me the day after, is that I'm slightly dizzy for the first half hour, then a few hours with an uneasy stomach (which results in the smelliest bathroom visits ever, yuck) which is best cured with soda, chips and bananas. So just eat salty foods, bananas and hydrate, I guess.

#49 Posted by RedLeader (36 posts) -

Add .75 ounces of whiskey/bourbon to a tallish mug of coffee. Drink two of these. Works every time for me.
