Everyone has their secrets for fighting a hangover. Here is a compilation of my favorites!
–Hair of the Dog that bit you– ie. drinking more to get right back to your drunken stouper (only a temporary solution).
–Coffee– the idea is that coffee will kick start the metabolism needed to digest that alcohol.
–Pain Killers– hard on your liver and a bad mix with alcohol
–Water– I once had a friend who swore that chugging 4 glasses of water before bed worked…. tried it once, and ended up vomiting up 4 glasses of water. Water is definitely better when being drank through out the night of drinking, not just at the end.
–Greasy Food– This is my choice of cures. I always go for pizza or bacon/egg/cheese sandwich. A Good breakfast always gets my body moving.
–Pickled Herring– Hey Germans call this cure a must!
–Green Tea– anti-oxidents from the Chinese!
–Sour Pickle Juice– Polish people love this cure.
–Pickled Plums– Japan likes this one.
–Shower– Seriously, if you wash the booze smell radiating from your body, might just help that pain.
–Rubbing Lemon In Your Armpits (before they start drinking)- Apparently lemons fight off dehydration. Not sure how that all works out though.
–Pre-Drinking Pills– These claim that if you pop them before you drink, they do the work to prevent a hangover… found at your local deli or bodega.
–Pot– Well, you know how we feel about that. Brings back your appetite and helps a headache, enough said.
