Honestly a pot/cup of tea is basically the best solution. It is easy as all hell to stumble into the kitchen and get the kettle boiling and it requires virtually no preperation or forward planning (who doesn't have tea bags, milk and (if you need it) sugar in their home? Hands down, America.) Plus you're getting a lovely water and caffeine injection combined with the calming properties of tea. Maybe put some street fighter on (assuming you're recovering with friends) and make a day of it.

In general I don't eat until late afternoon after a night of heavy drinking because I can't stomach it, but it is very important to eat when you feel able to.

My dad is so 'old country'. I was hungover recently, after puking up red wine three times before work. His solution was to 1) laugh at me 2) inform me that the best hangover cure, which was known by everyone, apparently, was pickle brine.  I was not having it. Pickle juice is really the last thing you want to drink after you've vomitted and your throat burns like hell. Maybe that was just his strange way of suggesting we should get some dirty martinis or something.

I don't know about all this greasy food business, but then again I've only ever had 1 hangover and it was due to several things: far too much vodka, not eating before, and not drinking any water. But the hangover the day after was worth the day before, so I'm okay with that. I will stick to eating a good meal and drinking water. I usually am mostly sober by the time I go to sleep anyways.

The last time I had a hangover, my friend dragged me to some weird-ass flea market in Vermont.

I guess eating an apple and haggling with a crazy Russian guy helped. Cos I felt better after that.

by this logic I have to assume that you never use contraception because that would defeat the same natural justice that you seem to think causes people to suffer hangovers after a night out.

Of course the consequences of spending a day in bed moaning and feeling crappy is not really comparable to say the act of bringing another life into the world and having to care for it. A child is a permanent fixture in the future from that point on while a hangover is a mild inconvenience. Considering the amount of sheer alcohol abuse that happens in the world a hangover now and again can be good for people who just don't know how to control themselves.

Speaking as a professional drunk handler and an unrepentant drunk I can attest to the fact that if a simple convenient hangover cure were ever invented, binge drinking would spike and we'd see the problems associated with it spread rampantly.

Problem here is that Tea is incredibly acidic, and tends to make me feel sick even if I'm feeling good already and I drink it on an empty stomach. Empty stomach plus hangover? Inevitable misery. Not a good call.

You talk as if a hangover is some form of karma, the problem with that is that a hangover isn't punnishment for being a volient/stupid/bad drunk, it is only punishment for being drunk

THINGS I HAVE TRIED THAT DO NOT WORK (for me)
* more alcohol

Anytime someone tries to tell me that alcohol is a good cure for a hangover I tell them that they don't have a hangover, they have a bit of a headache and feel a bit ill. There is no way a person with an honest to goodness hangover can drink ANYTHING*. Even the smell of alcohol can set me off.

Back in the day when we got our basic spirits delivered in 20 L plastic containers, the first thing I'd have to do if I was on the opening shift was pour them into the big drums that led to the ETN dispensers in the bars. One morning I came into work with a fucking spectacular hangover and I pulled the lid off the drum and poured the booze into it and the smell of about 50 litres of scotch caused me to throw up violently, and only my years of trained vomit direction and control stopped me from completely ruining 9 grand worth of alcohol. Of course cleaning up vomit with a hangover in a small cramped enclosed space with low airflow was a nightmare in itself.

It would have been an incredible wastage report for that day.

*I am not sure if bloody marys count as an exception to this because I fucking hate tomato juice, shit makes me throw up just by itself

Still, you have to say that Brett's comments are on the subject are really interesting so I think the point was worth making.

for the most part i think the best solution/s for me is

1)sleep
2)water or that G2 Gatorade stuff
3)more alcohol


although for a long time i'd go to 24 hour breakfast place to eat before i went to sleep and that fixed me right up

I don't get pill comedowns for some reason, but the fact that I have never been unable to pee has lead me to believe I have never had any really good pills or mdma even though the effects are quite enjoyable.

If I start tripping on that crazy green I smoked in college I just didn't eat anything but cookies for like 2 days and yeah, green gatorade.

My new cure for the hangover:

Stay up watching Braveheart and smoke all the cigarettes.
Sleep on the couch. Wake up every five minutes in an attempt to cool down/find a comfortable position. Repeat for five hours.
Get up without a hangover. Have cake for breakfast.

I find that sleep / lots of water / painkillers / light exercise in the fresh air are the only thing that help me. Or if I feel like being ill, I'll just be ill! Usually I feel better after. Thank god I basically stopped drinking and haven't had a hangover in 2 years. I pretty much have a 3-drink-limit now, and 3 drinks make me tipsy enough but don't give me a hangover.

What do you guys do against hangovers from pills? I lay in my bed yesterday, twitching around, unable to lie still and unable to sleep, so I had two tranquilizers which thankfully knocked me out. Now I'm giddy, light-headed and talk a lot of nonsense. Do I just have to wait it out and/or sleep it off or is there anything I can do?

I am perhaps not the best person to be giving advice on this subject as I only have around 1-2 hangovers a year.  I know my limits very, very well and it is very rare that I cross them.  I can however say that I am an experienced drinker (I go through something around the area of 4-5 liters of whiskey a week).  Make sure you drink plenty of water BEFORE you get a hangover, usually before bedtime and while you are drinking.  That can be a hard thing to do if you don't have a level head.  If you've had enough drink that you feel sick (like you want to vomit) then having a drink in the morning will be a poor choice.  If you have a slight headache but feel fine otherwise some hair of the dog can do you good.  A good breakfast of filling food usually makes me feel like a new man.  Some eggs and toast help you to swallow the night before, and caffeine always helps.  I prefer a couple of cups of strong, black coffee.

NEW TIP:

Don't try to fill your stomach back up with food in the middle of drinking, it'll only give you constipation the next day.  Also, toking up while drinking is not a good idea, as it encourages that kind of behaviour.  I ordered a cheese steak and hot wings at a party once*, and I'll be damned if poopin' wasn't hard times the day after.

Something salty and easy to eat (CHIPS!)

Oh I forgot about this. I get cravings for salty things when I'm drunk. Seriously. I made my friends take me to the grocery so I could hunt down some Pringles* and I hugged the things until I got to the check out. And then I got back to the apt and ate the entire can and passed out.

Oh, 21st birthday, you were silly.

*This hunt also ended up with some other form of potato chips for my friend, ice cream, frozen pizza, soda, and some other junk. There wasn't anything left in the morning, so I guess my two friends ate all that.

Oh dang I do that all the time but the morning after I think I'm usually too groggy and out of it to make that connection.  I am grateful for this tip but also think I will probably  do a bit of that in the future anyway.

the worst hangover i've ever had (which i later found out was mostly due to the half an extra-large bottle of jack daniels i'd downed, which i still can't remember doing  :roll:) involved the usual vomiting-into-the-nearby-sink-whilst-taking-a-beer-dump, but also had the disturbing extra symptom of temporary arms and hands paralysis.  in my hungover state, i decided the best fix for this was to move my torso in such a way that my now stiff hands nudged the hot tap on and filled the sink with really hot water, which i dunked my arms into for about five minutes until i got the feeling and ability to move back.  question:  WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT ALL ABOUT!?


also, useful hangovery cure thing (although fuck knows where you'd get them from, as the only one i've ever seen is the one my flatmate gave after the little episode above), is PowerAde powder.  comes in a little packet, and you dissolve it in water.  worked a treat.

I think the paralysis comes from severe dehydration...I'm not sure because it's never happened to me, but I think I've heard of people getting lost in the desert who have trouble moving their limbs after not having any water.


Anyways: who has a hangover right now?


Me.  I do.

my normal cure is sleep as much as you can, if you have to get up eat crisps (chips) and lots of them juice or coke or something (I can't drink plain water. also Do Not drink milk if you're a puker like me)

keep trying to eat until it stays down then drink as much water as you can stomach and sleep also bucket beside wherever you're sleeping/sitting 

I'm gonna try some preventative measures next week i'm going to a pendulum gig and seeing my sister and her friends. know i'm going to drink quite a bit but have a bus journey the next day puking hangover + bus journey = torture >.< i'm gonna try limit alcohol but know once i start i wont stop i'll just get into it also i'll go for higher quality vodka

I have heard about but never tried the pickle juice thing. Apparently rugby players also drink it as a substitute for Gatorade.  I heard this from one of my professors who can't play rugby anymore, because if he gets another concussion he'll almost certainly die.  Oh, college.

I think you sort of have to figure out what works for you.  I rarely get hangovers since I switched to gin, but when I do the best thing is to vomit.  I fill up a big glass of water and head to the bathroom and just drink until I throw up.  That seems to solve all my problems.

Oh, and I will second avoiding dairy.  I don't drink milk or anything these days, but I remember some really awful sickness from attempting to eat a bowl of cereal after a rough night.  I feel ill just thinking about it.
