  • Hangover Cures

    It's coming up to the time of year when many people will indulge in alcohol of one kind or another so how do you cope with or prevent hangovers ? My preferred method when I used to already have a hangover was to eat a Mars bar ; that usually worked within half an hour for me. Now I don't suffer hangovers - mostly because I don't drink as much as I used to but also because of preparation before drinking. It's important to have something to eat but it's better to have starchy alkaline foods - bread, potatoes, rice. Another good thing to have is dairy food - milk or cheese ; a cheesy pizza could be a good way to combine dairy and starch. Another important thing to do before going to sleep is drink at least a pint of water and take a multivitamin B capsule / tablet ; a good way to combine them is to take a Berocca if it's available in your country.

    What hangover cures have you tried ? Were they any good ?

    Strong tea on the morning after for me. And the good sleep, of course. If you wake up at 6 pm you can continue in the preceding vein. Tested & verifyed

    PS Potato is one the best alcohol sorbents - don't consume it to a large extent, otherwise you'll never feel inebriation at all.

      Ingesting ginseng before your drinking binge will prevent bad hangovers.


      Ginseng
      Popular in Eastern medicine -- where it’s used for a myriad of conditions including improving energy levels, boosting memory and helping the immune system -- ginseng may relieve the lethargic feeling that accompanies many hangovers. Taken before the party, ginseng can help your body speed up the processing of alcohol. If you take it the next day, ginseng can ease that tired feeling by giving you more energy.

        The most important thing to do is to drink lots of water while getting pissed. Dehydration is what must be avoided!

          It's good but not for people with hypertension (high blood pressure) as it increases blood pressure.

            I have heard eating bread before drinking prevents hangovers. Bitters after drinking also helps.

              Dear Gixxer! It's not cholera. Just a party. Of course, one can follow your rule and drink as much water as one wants (unless (or including - depends on personal preferences) the drinker is about to fling up). More important, IMHO, is the quality of the drinks that are consumed. And, [IMHO again], alcohol is more aggressive against empty stomach rather than against one filled with food.

                  Sure as hell isn't... but it's worked for me for the best part of thirty years!!!


                  The long toll of the brave
                  Is not lost in darkness
                  Over the fruitful earth
                  And athwart the seas
                  Hath passed the light of noble deeds
                  Unquenchable forever.

                      That's not a cure.

                        Drink lots of water while drinking.

                        The next morning, eat chocolate (no nuts or anything in it) and drink lots of water.

                        No ibuprophen if you have a headache! Use real aspirin only! Taking ibuprophen will cause you to vomit!

                        27 years in the USN and lots of time with the sorts that get hammered has taught me.

                        Hiccups: A slice of lime with grenadine! Works every time perfectly!

                          Oh no! water dilutes alcohol!
                          Agree about ibuprofen. All anti-inflammatory drugs depress prostaglandin production, hence might induce stomach ulcer (careful with alco uptake!).
                          Lime, grenadine - everything that has positive osmosis works. But (subjectively, of course) strong tea is better
                          Feel free to get drunk but never forget your home address, people! Have a nice weekend

                            Eat before drinking, the greasier the better. Drink lots of water.

                            Cures/prevents about 90% of all hangovers. I have found no cure for the remaining 10%.

                              Chug 3-pints of water after drinking right before you go to sleep.
