Big night out for a lot revelers, just curious what is your go to hangover "cure"
I really don't have one cure but my ritual in the past is drink plenty of fluids, eat something high in protien with ketchup and sleep as much as possible.
egg mcmuffins and gatorade
Sausage biscuits at McDonalds is a good substitute for the Egg mcMuffin. For the higher budgets, Bob Evans is awesome
A time tested strategy. Don't let the hangover set in!
Pedialite or I do a line off the 6th hooker's breast. Yes, this is the hooker that escaped the wrath of Craig James.
Take it (or not) from an old guy:
"No compelling evidence exists to suggest that any conventional or complementary intervention is effective for preventing or treating alcohol hangover. The most effective way to avoid the symptoms of alcohol induced hangover is to avoid drinking."
Jasper (with no alcoholic tendencies and a somewhat aged chassis) tries to pick his spots. Honestly, I think the best thing to do, if possible, is to stay up as long as you can after you're done.
I learned this from a Starbucks barista in Chicago. Have a crescent roll and coffee w/ cream. It's simple and effective!
Powerade and something high in carbohydrates helps me out. If I eat anything greasy I have a catastrophic ass blowout.
back in the late 80s. I had a friend that was married to a Korean national she passed this on to him. A few hours before he would go out drinking he would eat lots of uncooked rice and olive oil yuck!!. and he swore by it dude never seemed hungover the day after.
Yeah, I agree with the full greasy meal but with ketchup and lots of water, then sleep.
Sounds like she was just proactively punishing him for going out, and he fell for it.
Only way is to drink less. Sorry.
vomit as much as you can
This seems like a good place to post this classic from America's Finest News Source.
Alka Seltzer with a big glass of water the night before cures what ails you. If you didn't take it last night, take it now and then have a bloody mary.
I drink a big bottle of Gatorade with a few Aleve before I crash out that night. Always wake up feeling much better.
And that's mine.
a couple hash browns and a ton of powerade. Something about greasy McDonalds always helps me.
A hangover is fundamentally dehydration. The cure is to drink as much water, Gatorade, etc the day before you go out. I bought a 12 pack of Gatorade bottles and downed them all on the 31st before I went out. Then as you drink at night chug a bottle of Gatorade or something every 4th or 5th drink. Finally when you get home force yourself to put down 12 ounces of water. You'll wake up three or four times at night to make a bathroom run, but you'll be hangover free. A good night of binge drinking is all about planning.
If you're hungover now, force yourself to drink or pray for the sweet release of death. Or if you work for a hospital or parademic service, give yourself an IV. That's the Cadillac of Hangover cures right there.
(Warning: The danger to this plan is when its 4 am, you're passed out from the liquor, but your bladder is really full. That's a recipe for washing all the sheets on your bed the next day.)
That is wayyyyy to much work. I'll just drink some more.
The warning is why I know longer use this method!
Metamucil. Count on it.
I am pretty sure that bananas are good to eat the next day because it replaces all the toxins that alchohol put from the night before.
In all seriousness, I've found this to be a great prophylactic measure before going to sleep (so long as she's happy to oblige). I always wake up fine. Can't wait until the next morning though because the headache is preclusive. By then it's too late anyway.
Sex is my preferred hangover relief. If that doesn't work, ambien.
Water. Water. Water. I also won't eat until late afternoon.
Percocet and gatorade, of course.
to eat something very greasy before going to bed. My go-to is usually Cottage Inn pizza. Rarely wake up hungover if I do this.
Gatorade and Dramamine or other motion sickness medication makes for a great "cure". It's a little miracle.
My routine is water/G2 before bed time. The next day More G2 or water, Aleve, meal with significant amounts of bread, take a deuce, nap, shower. Bam!!!! Manageable hangover!!
Assuming I am not passed out and being used as a whiteboard by other partygoers, I try to put off sleeping as long as possible, which is why I stuck around in the Alamo Bowl thread for as long as I did actually. I was fairly far gone early in the game, but feeling better by the merciful end to the game.
In the morning, a combination of coffee, Gatorage and ibuprofen because after I have spent a whole evening going to the bathroom, there's no reason not to continue this trend into the morning.
Benefiber helps too, oddly enough, but use it only if you intend to hang around the house all day.
Does Brian Wilson endorse this?
Brian Wilson endorses all typos with a hearty demolition of the dugout.
crap the booze out and have a mint.
+1 for The League reference.
Disregard women, acquire currency.
excedrin, 5 hour energy, and an immodium just in case
Pho soup nice and spicy.
or more specifcally their wonderful greasy/spicy food. Tios if available. Add a moderate intake a of alcohol and you sir (or madam) will be back on your feet in no time.
A big glass of orange juice and a huge plate of beef enchiladas got me right back on my feet!
two spicy bites with just cheese from 7-11
I have found that drinking 8 oz of stem cells the morning after really helps.
Had to have multiple cups this morning.
One Bloody Mary
One raw egg slider
One more Bloody Mary
One half-dozen oysters
One more Bloody Mary
One more Bloody Mary
Recline to prone position
2 or 3 20oz gatorades with me to bed and set them on my nightstand. over the course of the night/morning, i drink 'em all.
also, waking up at 3pm helps.
Wake up at 5:30 like I just did.
