Bad news, hangover cures don't work

Recommended Posts

I find that a drink of water before I go to bed does seem to make me feel slightly better the next day or something to eat as well before I go to bed.

Every night I've been drinking I usually will have had something to munch (chips and cheese/kebab/pizza or something) and a good pint of water.

Hangover count: 0

I was damned close this morning though. Felt a lil touch and go.

my way to cure a hangover:

Irn-Bru, has to be a tin, has to be very cold(prepare before going out the night before).

Salt and Vinegar Squares. a few packs of.

A shit.

A spew(only if above fails).

A shower.

Hangover cured!

water is the way forward. (ideally, you'd want to drink as much water as you've drunk alcohol. if you're a heavy drinker and don't want a hangover, you'd better start downing them water jugs).

the priory sucks btw.

I'll assume you saw me then, not just impressive guesswork. I wouldn't know about the prices, my friend had won a 50 voucher at Priory the other week. Free drinks ALL around. Gone in half a second though, thanks to his sister having half a million friends with her.

There may not be a 'cure' exactly, but you can still lessen the symptoms of a hangover quite well .Basically you have to undo what you have done to yourself.

A hangover is

1. Dehydration - alcohol is a diuretic, you always lose around 4 times as much fluid as you are taking in. This causes the brain to shrink which pulls the surrounding membranes causing the headache. Also the reason for furry mouth, sore throat and dry eyes.

2. Vitamin Deficiency - the diuretic effect means your body flushes out vital salts and minerals, eg sodium and potassium. Alcohol also breaks down the liver's stores of glycogen, turning it to glucose which is also flushed out. This is why you feel so tired and lacking in energy.

3. Withdrawal - alcohol is a narcotic, which depresses the central nervous system. When you suddenly stop taking it, the body over-reacts and the nervous system becomes over-sensitive to light, loud noise etc.

The treatment is

1. Dehydration - drink as much water as possible, preferably along with the alcohol. Every couple of pints have a pint of water too. Drink a pint or two before sleeping, preferably an electrolyte replacing sports drink (make your own - 1 pint of water with 8 tsp salt and 4tsp sugar)

2. Vitamin deficiency - eat plenty if you can, particularly fruit and veg, eg bananas which are mineral rich, as are tomatoes. Sweet food or drinks can increase the blood sugar level to replenish energy.

3. Withdrawal - this is why hair of the dog works, it reduces sensitivity by allowing the body to wean itself off the narcotic more gradually. Healthier option is to reduce alcohol intake toward the end of the night.

Combine 2 and 3 by having a good properly made Bloody Mary with a stick of celery.

Increased oxygen can also help speed up the repair process. Battle of Britain pilots the morning after a good night in the Officer's Mess would go down to their planes and strap on the oxygen mask for a few minutes. If you don't have a spitfire, go for a brisk walk.

I wouldn't have thought something sugary would help as alcohol causes your stomach to produce too much acid.

maybe its the caffiene then, but something in it works wonders.....maybe its the girders even?

My hangover cure:

Upon waking up drink a pint of fruit juice (I prefer cranberry or apple)

Take a cold shower

Have a bacon roll, & a cup of coffee

Then a pint of ice cold milk.

Hangover cured!

Or alternatively go swimming, it always seems to work on holiday.

although, if you drink too much, you can actually drown doing so..

I drank 2 litres of water once within half an hour and I was getting so cold and shivery and my head was going fuzzy and I was told I could have died doing so because you can actually drown :|
