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. Lurking in the bathroom, hiding beneath the sink or behind a closed shower curtain, this hangover is sure to pop into our lives anytime we play the role of the unsuspecting partier, leaving us to swear off drinking for life or longer.

Though everything has a price, and a hangover may very well be the price we pay for a wild night out, drinking wine does not always have to cost you in the form of a hangover. Taking some precautions can mean the difference between feeling fine and shooting a beady eyed glare in the direction of every bottle in your wine cellar.

Drink water

Alcohol dehydrates you, which is why the next day is met with a headache and the ability to drink three bottles of soda, five liters of water, and a pot of coffee without ever having to pee. The best way to thwart this is to drink a glass of water for every glass of wine you drink. While wine does contain water, the alcohol in the wine trumps the water's affect, disallowing you to utilize duality and count a glass of wine as both water and alcohol. Drinking a glass of water for every glass of wine will keep you hydrated, decreasing the chances of a rough morning.

    Drink Powerade the next day - really helps with getting hydrated and those vital nutrients back!

    Or take some Hydrodol tablets before or after drinking - they're apparently tablets that are made with amino acids, vitamins and minerals :)

    I have two cures; the first is chocolate milk, a year-round cure that should be had between 10 and 11am the following morning. Don't get creative and start thinking you'll try strawberry or banana instead though, bad idea.
    The second solution is just for scorching hot summer days, and involves cricket, specifically bowling ten on the trot. It's uncomfortable as hell for the first few overs, but after that you'll wonder why you ever tried to get rid of a hangover any other way.
