Curse my luck, this thread would have been incredibly useful for me yesterday. Spent the whole day recovering from a night of excess, while feeling like dying. I'm learning though: I didn't make any silly promises about never drinking again; this time I just promised to stop drinking until I forgot this specific hangover. Which may happen next weekend or whenever.

But yeah, being hungover is the worst thing in the world. The body truly hates being drowned in alcohol, and doesn't mind making us feel guilty for that.

Yeah it's like the body hates your brain having a time off. Also it could be a revenge for me dancing Prodigys Voodoo People... "You made me do stupid stuff now I'm going to hurt you"

Before you go to sleep after a lot of drinking just chug a liter of water or so. You'll feel better in the morning since the hangover is just being dehydrated. at least that is what i do and it works fine. But i also don't drink like you Finns.

Pft.... I've been in colder weather. Wisconsin really showed me what a cold winter is with its -35 windchill. Where breathing deep is a no no, opening your eyes is a no no. You feel your cheeks will peel off, and spitting will create a small ball of ice before it hits the floor. Good times. Its no wonder WI has the highest consumption of alcohol in the US.

we get tormented for days after drinking cause we are old Nahkapukki ... I have the same problem these days... feel shit forever after a nice night of vodka...

I usually try to sleep as long as possible the next morning, down like three classes of water before going to bed and then the next day soak in the bathtub for an hour and maybe a ibuprofen and a ice cold can of dr pepper... and if nothing helps I use the good old "Konterbier (counter beer)" as we say here aka just drinking a few beer to feel a bit better and then stop...

rinse and repeat weekend after weekend :LOL:

another, a bit more hardcore method is to just never stop drinking (y)

Just water works for me, I drink lots of water with/before liquor. I don't get hangovers. I still feel like shit the next day though, psychologically :poop:

Water, if you can stomach it/ remember to drink it before going to bed. Ibuprofen/ aspirin an hour before you have to get out of bed, followed by a high strength vitamin B tablet, a cooked breakfast , Co-Codamol and some exercise to defuzz your head. Or just lie in bed crying and masturbating (although that isn't usually appreciated by my wife).

Water, vitamins, painkiller (not tylenol), and greasy+salty food. That fixes it for me every time. I'm on the keto diet which leads to extremely bad hangovers and this still works well even with the extra pain.

Is keto similar to Atkins- very low carb, high fat/ protein? If so, you need to drink a load of water anyway and also take on extra salt from somewhere (a bouillon cube in hot water is pretty good). You lose a lot of water from the diet- hence the extra dehydration- and if you just drink a load of water, you can get really bad cramps without the extra sodium.

Yep, keto and atkins are pretty similar. I've found that I can sometimes get a headache during the day from not drinking enough water so that makes sense...also I have taken to eating pickles and salted almonds more on the diet so that's probably why I haven't seen issues from not having enough salt lol

Water and... if you can gobble them down, salted herrings. And of course even more alcohol but that kinda defeats the purpoise.

these have helped me in the past. they are hydration tablets so if you can remember drop one in a bottle of water before knocking out and drink the bottle. ive woken up feeling really good after that.

For a reasonable facsimile, try staying awake for a week, giving yourself food poisoning and insulting your nearest and dearest. Then get people to randomly remind you of the worst, most embarrassing things you've ever done while you're waking up and someone's playing the drums really badly and your boss is trying to peel your skin off whole and that's just the thirty seconds as you vaguely wake up and you have 10 minutes to sort yourself out and then attend a 2 hour sales meeting after which you have to endure an 8 hour train journey home which should take 6 but the train;s are all delayed and you're trapped in a rammed carriage with a load of drunken wankers on their way to Edinburgh on a stag do and they're waving bottles of Tia fucking Maria around and you can't get to your seat because there's a little old lady in it because her seat doesn't exist because they only put on 4 of the 8 carriages and you can't get any water, never mind food and your stomach's about to give way but there's no way of getting to the one toilet that still works on this fucking train.

Maybe that's just the UK though.

I've never had a real hangover, but the best I've felt after heavy drinking was the times I drank about 8oz of water for every serving alcohol (which is usually spirits, so with beer you might not need so much) and drinking over several hours. Pee a lot but the hydration seems to be the main thing with alcohol.

I haven't tried these much with alcohol, but they're good generally.

I don't drink enough to get drunk anymore, so hangovers aren't a problem for me now... But I did drink A LOT for a significant period of time in my life, and the main thing that helped me was drinking lots of water between alcoholic drinks. If I was hungover the next day(which I usually was), eggs and coffee were my friends(even if I had to force them down), along with a long shower and plenty of acetaminophen.
