Discussing :: Avoiding hangovers

Avoiding a wine hangover We've all been there. Those times in our lives when we swear that alcohol will never again touch our lips. These instances usually happen in the early mornings, with the cracks from the bathroom linoleum digging into our knees and our contact lenses glued to our eyeballs as if holding on for dear life, afraid that the heaves of our stomachs will cause them to fall out.     With alcohol freely flowing - booze oozing out of bottles, people professing their love for each other, glasses of wine practically filling themselves up - it's easy to forget the hangover that awaits in the coming hours.

On the way home before the night is through
Crank through a BK burger

Spot on! There's no magical cure, only prevention. Some things do often make you feel slightly more alive the next day though such as a good feed of KFC or the like. Skulling a few litres of water before bed as a last ditch effort tends to help a bit as well. Feed and hydrate, you'll feel great. Empty tummy you'll feel scummy haha

Usually chugging plenty of water before you go to sleep and if you're still feeling seedy in the morning McDonalds takeaways usually put me right! If neither of these work then clearly I've had waaaaaaay too much.

I swear by orange juice before you go to bed - it helps to absorb the alcohol, a shower before bed if you can manage it, and one as soon as you get up and lots of water - and you will feel like a million dollars!

Swim in the ocean - or a blast on my jetski in the middle of winter usually does the trick

Get kicked in the nuts. Hurts like hell, but you quickly forget you are hungover (and you have something to blame the vomiting on :) heehee

Don't wait until the end of the night (it's too late by then!), start including drinking water or sports drink during the night. Stay away from sugary soft drinks like Coke - they just dehidrate you more.

It starts with the preperation...
On the day, around lunch, have a cup of liver tea and follow up with two more before you head out that night (if you haven't had before, be prepared for the taste!).
If you are drinking wine, remember to go glass for glass with water, or face the consequences in the morning. On the stumble home, instead of stopping at BK, McD's etc, stop at the star mart (or similar) and arm yourself with a powerade silver (isotonic) and drink at least half before sleeping.
If you still feel crap in the morning, I find a banana/yoghurt smoothie ASAP works a treat. Otherwise if you can get one, a shot of wheatgrass.
Avoid all drinks with coke. Try drinking your bourbon/whiskey with gingerale, and your vodka with water and lime.

If you're feeling the effets of the night before this is the best recovery...
1. Wake significant other for rampant morning romp. (the excercise will shed toxins and alcohol in sweat and other bodily fluids).
2.Make bloody mary for two with extra spices and tobasco.(drink in bed with significant other).
3.Engage in another round of morning delight with partner.(see why in 1.)
4.Take significant other out to brunch and order 3 x different drinks from menu as well as anything absolutely doused in lard.
5. Eat whatever significant doesn't and order another carafe of water.
6.Purge whatever doesn't want to stay with you in the nearest commode.
7.Take partner home for 3rd bedroom indulgence for the day, run partner a hot shower and leave to pursue sporting interest/hobby for two hours...
8. Exaggerate to your friends of your previous sexual conquests.

If this doesn't work never ever drink again and thank your lucky stars you got laid...

Berocca and Vegemite On Toast.. followed by a few panadol. Also heard Ginseng is supposed to be good for hangover.. better than coffee which seems to make you more dehydrated.
