    Interesting article today on how to stop hangovers, what do you do?

    You must register/login in order to see the link.

    Personally if I drink a lot I make sure I eat before going to bed, take a few Tylenol's before hitting the sack too.

    I've tried the hair of the dog thing, helps if I'm on a trip, away from work but not when heading out for a full day ahead of me not a good game plan. :)

    the only sure way to not have one is by not drinking
    helping to alleviate one doesnt need much more than sleep, re-hydration and maybe an aspirin..aside from that, unless you're still a teen, it's learning your level of tolerance and respecting it.

    A pint of water before bed seems to work for me.

    Heavy or light drinking? If I'm tying one on a the bar or party (especially if alcohol), I'll try chase every few drinks with a glass of water. Beer doesn't seem to affect me hangover wise, liquor will; but I get that, hmm, bile taste, which says it's up-the-water-intake time

    Good point, many say have a glass of water after each drink which slows ya down and helps the next day. :thumbsup:

    Heavy, just seems to take the headache aspect out of the next morning, I'll probably still feel a little rough for a couple of hours but not half as bad as what I would have felt like otherwise!

    Each to their own I guess, some swear by a few bacon butties the next morning.

    I'm pretty sure there's no 'cure', but I guess some remedies may play a part; after all everyone has different metabolisms. It may be that I actually have hangover effects but sleep through them. In my younger days, it often felt like my head was three times too small; these days, but for the rare bender, I'm good to go, pop a pill, load up on OJ and water and right as rain.
    Beer, I can put back about 5 pitchers at the bar, so, hmm, 15 beer, with no adverse effects (er, hangover wise lol). I probably feel bloated long before the point where the hangover effects would kick in.

    For me snacking in between drinks and also eating AFTER I had a drink helps somewhat.

    If you are a smoker, this will increase the intensity of your hangover ... A few people swear by this :) - Cut back on smokes.

    After a drink then a meal, its good to walk a bit or do something to wear the alcohol down (Dancing, Chasing the Neighbours Cat..etc) ... and after that water with 2 Painkillers - I usually do not have a hangover the next day if I do this.

    On a side note, I was so drunk once that I came home and googled 'How to get Sober Quickly' LOL!

    I thought smoking thickened the blood, drinking it thinning it; kind of cancelling one another out.
    As for running around etc, wouldnt that just move the alcohol faster through the system, not actually negating it? I'd think the sweating would just exacerbate the hangover by being more dehydrated.

    The headache associated with hangovers has a lot to do with being dehydrated - so drinking a lot of water while boozing it up will help.

    I also learned a little secret from fellow partyers: anti-diarrhea tablets. Take a full dose before hitting the pubs and it will assist your body in retaining its water - thus no headache. I have a couple of friends who swear by this. I've tried it and it seems to work. :D

    I remember watching a morning tv program once where they tested this. They paid for 3 students to go out and get drunk then brought them into the studio the next morning absolutely hanging.

    They gave one a full English breakfast, one the usual over the counter painkillers you reach for when your suffering and the last guy had hair of the dog.

    The guy with the fry up had the best recovery but I suppose it depends in the person.

    If you can face it I would always go for the breakfast option.

    WRT Smoking - Yes, but lots of former smokers said that their hangovers were less intense.. Maybe the nicotene (and other chemicals) coupled with alcohol ..

    Running around... Walking... I know it would dehydrate you hence the water. It aids me in getting sober faster as opposed to just sitting and spinning :p

    It's 100% true

    I don't think non-smokers can really appreciate how heavy a smoker hangover is.
    I can drink twice as much if I'm not smoking and have virtually no hangover compared to the hangovers I get when smoking heavily.

    Don't smoke I suppose is the trick to that one eh?
    My ecig does no harm though.

    I dunno; I'm a two pack a day smoker; doesn't seem to do anything here, whether I'm at the bar and only have a couple (cant smoke inside) or home and light one off the other (or even one burning away in tray while im lighting one lol)
