I find that if you eat exactly 1 hour before you start drinking works; and eating before you go to bed with lots of water; as well as the hot bath in the morning works; and if you know you are going out partying on a certain day always drink the night before to acustom your body to the alcohol; it is less of a shock to the system. If you are hung over with a headache, nothing works better than EXCEDRIN extra strength; it has 65 mg more of caffiene per tablet which speeds up the acetominophen faster relieving the headache in 10 minutes or less (its way better than tylenol); besides, caffiene is actually good for hangovers anyways. These remedies work for me 100% of the time.
#5 - Carrie - 06/16/2008 - 17:51
Drink 1 1/2 oz of olive oil before starting to drink, know when to tke a break while drinking to drink water when u get home drink a tall glass of water and tylenol
#6 - yani - 08/22/2008 - 10:42
I don't know if you can get hold of a product called Berocca but if you can, dissolve two berocca tabs into a big glass of water and knock it down before you go to bed. It's a fizzy drink and doesn't taste great but it works. The important thing is to remember to take it in your drunken stooper before you go to bed.
#7 - Pete - 08/29/2008 - 00:47
Agree with Pete about Berrocca. It works. Also I've found that eating some food and drinking atleast two glasses of water before you pass out...i mean sleep. Then if you still wake up with a headache (which means you didn't drink enough water last night) then have a headache tablet (GrandPa works best), and more water. By now water is your newly found enemy so alternate with warm or iced rooibos / green tea. Spicy chicken wings tend to be an absolutely devine snack during the day as well for those constant hunger pangs. Oh and when all is said and done one really cold, and refreshing cider, (Hunter's Dry works best) will remind you that you're human again.
#8 - Professional Party Animal - 10/08/2008 - 09:09
the best thing to do is take pills called essencials theses will allow you to drink but u wont get motherless. and have a few glasses of water in between your drinks.
#9 - dr d - 01/01/2009 - 03:47
Moderation or don't drink at all,but if your like me one drink leads to another and before you know ya' got a hangover comin. Water will dilute the alcohol so consume as much water as u can hold before going out and eat . Food in your belly will slow the effects of alcohol. Gator aid or any sport drink has electrolytes which help hydrate faster. Another alternative: Hair of the dog.
#10 - Dan - 01/11/2009 - 17:27
I have done this for about 10 years and so far it has always worked!!
About an hour or so before you start drinking, eat a small to regular meal that is not loaded with grease. Also, take 2 extra strength tylenol with a glass of water. Also, try to drink a glass or two of water in between drinks. It will keep you hydrated. After you are done drinking, eat a small snack with LOW SUGAR AND LOW GREASE! I have served and bartended for 12 years and sugar and grease will make you SO sick when you are drinking! Avoid them no matter how much your drunken muchies want them! :) Do this and go home and sleep. When you wake up, drink another glass of water and take 2 more tylenol. After that, you are good to go!
#11 - therealslimkatie - 02/05/2009 - 01:47
When you get home drink pickle juice. It counter reacts with the alchohol is your system neutralizing it. In Russia after drinking Vodka they eat things that are pickled to do this very thing... Then right before you go to sleep its important that you take two pain relievers (I take Tylenol) and one VITAMIN!!!! The vitamin replenishes the stuff your liver depleted you of while trying to process out the alchohol. Do these things and you will not suffer the next day. Oh and B12 sublingual drops the next day help. I get mine at WalMart...
#12 - Susan - 02/12/2009 - 00:09
:-P before going to bed drink lots of water!!!... then in the morning take two asprin's n drink more water... the juice thing works to but you have to drink a lot so you can flush the alcohol out...
#13 - pwee - 03/13/2009 - 08:23
:-) Hungover the next day? Make a banana honey milk shake. It works! It replenishes the electrolytes and potassium back in that the alcohol depleted your body of. Also soothes your stomach .

Note: I heard that taking tylenol while being intoxicated is not good for your liver. Try advil or asprin instead and lots of water!
#14 - Tammy - 03/17/2009 - 02:42
best thing I've ever found to do after a night of pounding down the morning, drink some pickle juice and take a hot bath. always works for mE.
#15 - Robin - 03/23/2009 - 07:54
Tylenol is the worse thing to ingest when drinking because it is bad for a liver that is already saturated with alcohol! As a nurse, I eat before I drink; drink water between drinks (even shots of tequila go with a full glas of water and that helps keep me hydrated).

Before I go to bed I take a B complex vitamin and drink more water and if I need it a protein shake to keep sugar levels even over night.

If I have absolutely not paid any attention while drinking and no Ididn't drink enough water and will get a headache due to dehydration; then I will take ibuprofen instead of tylenol.

Whoever sais smoking weed is 100% natural is also wrong. There are side effects with all drugs including alcohol.

And a little oil (grease) is a good idea as that coats your stomach (think olive oil with a grilled chicken salad)
#16 - smylz4me - 05/25/2009 - 22:34
The best is to dilute a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water. Take this and within 30 minutes, you will not even remember you took any alcohol at all!
#17 - celine - 05/29/2009 - 13:37
#18 - JASMINE - 06/10/2009 - 21:25
one sip of water for every sip of alcohol should do the job...a bit lame though...but who care\'s
#19 - harindr - 06/18/2009 - 10:47
Don't DRINK prevents hangovers
#20 - Johnny Mae - 06/18/2009 - 11:36
I've always found a couple of Paracetemol when you get up (or before you go to bed if you remember) have always helped along with a bottle of coke.If you can stomach it a couple of pieces of dry bread normally help too, along with at least a pint of water preferably before you go to bed. Hope this helps
#21 - Emily - 07/21/2009 - 09:45
drink lot of fluids.. like friut juices amd mostly water.. and have enough sleep.
#22 - jamie - 07/24/2009 - 22:14
Childrens Pedialyte. Used for childrens dehydration, restores electrolytes.
#23 - kate - 08/28/2009 - 15:39
If you are going to a party and have lots of alcohol, before going to sleep, drink lots of water, and try not to sleep immediately as this will just slows down the alcohol breakdown on your body, have atleast 1hour watching t.v, or surfing net before going to sleep... I am 7yrs drinker, this works for me, even if i had only 2-4hrs of sleep no hang over, no medication involved!
#24 - Mark - 09/05/2009 - 08:57
Before bed eat something with a lot of capsicum (hot pepper) and of course as much water as possible. Upon waking make a smoothie with banana,orange,pineapple,apple,honey,and ice (Vitamix users call this orbappi juice). Nuf said now get to it!
#25 - rob0 - 09/29/2009 - 22:46
Gatorade and BC works just fine before and after you get your drink on. and the hot shower in the morning.
#26 - Brenna B - 11/07/2009 - 12:13
Smoking weed will prevent a hangover! I drank a litre of vodka one night and was unbelievably drunk and thus didn't know what i was doing... my friend made me smoke weed and voila, no hangover! I have done this twice now and although that's not proof, it worked both times for me and i really suffer with hangovers usually. I don't condone the use of controlled substances by the way
#27 - Big Boy - 11/11/2009 - 10:13
Lots of water and smoke a bowl of weed before bed, unless your too hammered to function like a normal human.
#28 - MalaysianMango - 12/08/2009 - 01:09
Perfect Remedy for hangovers...just don't drink at all and guarantee you will not have a hangover the next day. It's that simple.
#29 - cindy simple - 12/09/2009 - 14:17
A few people already said smoking weed before bed. However if you're drunk enough, smoking can actually make you feel worse and even make you black out. The worst hangovers I've ever had have (especially if you're puking a lot) have been cured almost instantly by smoking a blunt when you wake up in the morning.
#30 - Colleen - 01/05/2010 - 15:58
the best cure for a hangover is the hair of the dawg!!
#31 - dg - 02/22/2010 - 18:15

#33 - TONY - 06/29/2010 - 12:57
The best thing to cure a hangover is to start drinking again. After two drinks you won't notice the hangover and you can start all over again! Drink 'em with a greasy breakfast and you're set!
#34 - Kyra - 09/23/2010 - 23:42
:-) avoid hangovers all together JUST STAY DRUNK :-P
#35 - BILL - 10/30/2010 - 18:57
Try taking a Gravol along with a big glass of water before you go to bed. Works like charm :)
#36 - julie - 12/02/2010 - 16:02
drink pedialyte or make it.. 1 table spoon of salt, 2 table spoons of sugar, 10 ounces of water, baking soda two table spoons full mixed together and eat a lemon with salt will get rid of your hang over. don't take aspirin or tylenol that can be bad for your liver.
#37 - rocco - 12/25/2010 - 22:57

chew on some fresh parsley, sounds funny but will work
#40 - LynndaQueen - 12/26/2011 - 07:55
they can hear, and see what your visually thinking

the reason alot of asians have completely expressionless faces, only associate with asians and dont associate with non asians very much is to avoid accidentally revealing that they can read read minds, if all over a billion asians were to show facial expressions all the time just as much as non asians, associate with non asians much more, and be much more friendly and talkative, then alot of them might accidentally reveal that they can read minds by accidentally showing a facial expression or dirty look when someone thinks, or visually pictures something in their mind they dont like or find astonishing or funny, and if they were all to associate with non asians alot more there would be alot more people around for them to accidentally show facial expressions when those other people think things they dont like, so they only associate with asians so there wont be anyone around for them to see that and have any accidents happen in the first place

think about it, its not normal how alot of them act, and the entire way they act is all to hide their mind reading abilities, it makes perfect sense to do all of that to hide that they can read minds, because all of that is the perfect way to do it!
every single asian on the planet is hiding their mind reading abilities, they value hiding their mind reading abilities more then their own lives!
thats why nobody knows about it!

try thinking, best yet visually picturing in your mind something something absolutely crazy as you possibly can when you are around asians, and try looking for asians who give people particular looks, especially dirty looks for what appears to be for completely no reason, that is them giving people looks when they hear and visually see someone thinking something they dont like, find funny or astonishing
it still happens despite them having completely expressionless faces all the time, its not uncommon!

i know this sounds crazy, impossible, and completely unbelievable, BUT IT ISNT CRAZY WHEN ITS TRUE
