I did partake in a few glasses of wine last night, the article caught my eye.

If I ate vegemite, garlic and oysters right now I'd probably hurl! Freshly squeezed orange juice normally helps me, as does lemonade. Plain toast with vegemite is also good for the sodium hit.

Yeah, I'm a bananas and chocolate milk kind of hangover girl myself.

But if it's been a really intense party night, I'm lucky if I can hold down water.

I tried vegemite once when I was in Australia and it was a traumatic experience, even without the morning-after spins.

Yes, I see both tomato juice and orange juice on the list...

My advice is pour a tall glass of either, add a couple of shots of vodka and drink...should cure that nasty hangover every time...icon_smile

Call it what you want...works like a charm...icon_smile

See Nic...it's just basic biology that hangovers only occur when you stop drinking...the astute drinker realizes this and understands that the best way to prevent nasty hangovers is to not "stop" drinking...

Like I said...it's just basic biology...

Back in my younger days I used the hair of the dog cure, too. The first drink almost made me cry but numbers two and three always went down a treat.

The other hangover cure that always worked well was a huge slurpee.

Those days are behind me now though, and I've gotta say I don't miss them!

Ahhh, the trusty highball mixes. Speaking from experience the classic screwdriver or bloody mary are particularly good when you have a family function on the next day and you don't want to appear hungover as a mofo but also don't want to be seen in front of the little cousins or mum partaking in the use of the hair of the dog tactic.

Alternatively, you could always try the voodoo cure by sticking thirteen black pins in the cork of that offending bottle of red.

A friend of mine phoned up an alcohol advice line once, and asked them where the nearest pub was. I think he had a problem drunken

eigther something fried, like a greasy sausage sandwich... or something that doesn't resemble food at all such as novelty crisps (monster munch/space invaders/ skips) or pot noodle. I am soooo lucky to have a shop nearby for morning emergency foods!!

What you want is sugar and liquid! ...Brown cow (coke with milk) for the thirst ...with a paracetamol thrown in for good measure ...and as much ice cream as you can stomach.
And then jump back into bed and sleep ...!
The other(better) alternative is a good workout - sweating it out -and trust me; there is no better cure. Just keep hydrating!!!

This depends on the level of hangover...a level 1 hangover(can function normally expcept for a bit of a headache) can normally be cured by headache tablets ,some green tea and a nice english breakfast, A level 2 hangover( slight nausea, fuzzy head and can handle heavy machinery sort of) headache tablets, coke a cola, a cornetto and when the sickness goes something proper to eat(normally toast and some bacon), level 3(can not function normally, head is throbbing so badly that any movement induces nausea and room spinning) can only be cured by strong headache tablets, a little water and sleep for a few hours.

If you want to avoid a hangover altogether, I can recommend taking the herbal supplement, Milk Thistle - if you can get it in liquid form, that's better as it encourages you to drink more water, but even the tablet form is good...

Take it before you go out/start drinking, take it before you go to bed and again in the morning - I guarantee you'll feel good!!

(The homeopathic remedy Nux Vomica is also very good, but can promote vomiting (which of course, can be no bad thing))

Seriously though, milk thistle - let me know how you all get on...

Um, can't I just mix it with vodka? Wouldn't that make the most sense?

You could create a new drink that doesn't cause hangovers...heck, you could even call it The Mazza...happy8

Ha, how well you know me... There is something a little hedonistic about knocking back your milk thistle with a beer, or wine, or JD and Coke etc...

Seriously though.. try it - it really really works, you can totally kick the arse out of it with milk thistle!! Bwahahaha

For an old fashioned hangover I find the only thing that really works is lots of rest, lots of water, some pain killers and soda crackers.

In terms of preventative measures, it's all about the cucumbers!

No joke, whenever I am having my first few drinks at home before meeting up with friends at the bar I always cut up a cucumber and munch on it while I'm getting ready to go.
Not sure how it helps, but one of my girlfriends told me about it and it actually works!

Now whenever I host party time at my place I always have a platter of cucumber out for my guests!

I have a remedy that I use and it works everytime....

Just before you go to bed have a huge glass of water, 2 advil and a vitamin B12

Quote:
The vitamin b12 benefits that are the most popular are often due to its crucial role in giving you energy. While not all the functions and vitamin b12 benefits are clear they definitely have a vital role in the creation of healthy red blood cells.

I usually go with 4 Advil, but I'll be sure to add some B12 to the mix.

Mazz, I keep forgetting to get the milk thistle.

Before bed, consume a greasy breakfast. bacon,eggs, home fries. The grease soaks up the booze.
In the AM, slowly drink a glass of Coke a Cola to settle the tummy.

I'm disappointed to see that Pho (or many different Southeast Asian soups, actually) isn't on the list. It re-hydrates, and the spices help to cleanse the alcohol from your system.

I have a friend who worked on the Ozzfest Tour a couple years ago, and according to Ozzie, the hangover expert: Pedialite

As far as the milk thistle, I was a a painter for 22 years and used it when I got sick from acetone build-up in my system, so I can see that it would work for a hangover

Recipe Number One

I cut, split and stack several tons of firewood every September through October. I used to experience cramping most evenings after working all day/evening long.

Started drinking Gatorade sports drinks a few years back - no more cramping. After doing that for a few weeks, I noticed how damned expensive that was, so I started mixing my own sports drink equivalent. There isn't much to 'em and it's a lot less expensive over the long haul.

Also found they are excellent the next morning after a heavy duty night of booz'n. Rehydrate and resupply the potassium & electrolytes I got rid of the previous evening. It's the best thing I've ever used.

If ya can't beat 'em... pay someone to do it for you.
