My hangover

My hangover has now moved into day 2. Last night was cold shakes and sweats. It was great fun with the boys, but still... Any advice would be gratefully received.

My tip is a decent breakfast and then get some vitamin B-12. Works wonders for me.

Another quick fix is Lipovitan. It's a vitmin/energy drink that you can get in Japanese/Korean groceries. Comes in little brown bottles and tastes like apple-juice.

Orange juice and a cold, cold shower, my friend.

my favourite site for cures is http://www.hungover.net [best viewed while still under the influence] ; though most of the cures there just have to be bullshit, the dryness of the aussie humour will at least lessen the headpain of dehydration. hopefully you'll find some help there. :)

Two ways:
1. don't start drinking (a little late for that)
2. don't stop drinking (there you go!)

Two pints of water, and sex in the morning followed a cold shower eat some lard and fresh air, then if you can make it to a pool do some lengths. Open two cans of Stella in emergency but DO NOT DRINK ANYMORE!.
Then avoid going to work where the fear will come calling, find some decent films and then try to sleep as much a possible.

tis all.

Best thing for a hangover? Heavy drinking the night before.

Arf arf.

Sorry, Frasermoo, but this isn't your private blog.

You line the puppies up and I'll kick 'em, in the name of Infinite Pancake Justice.

Here you go. That should minimize your hangovers.

For real this works...... eat a bowl of Mexican soap called Menudo. It really really works. BTW, you can eat it before you start drinking, just after you stop, or the next morning. I think it's works best the next morning or just before you go to bed.

Don't drink shit that gives you a nasty hangover, is advice numero uno.

If you find yourself in this position in the future, don't sleep in. Wake up, take a shower, grab another drink, and get out of the house. Waiting in the house for the hangover to magically disappear is a mistake, in my opinion. You'll still feel like shit, but at least your day isn't wasted watching crap TV feeling sorry for yourself.

Burger King and Gatorade

I nice solid Denny's breakfast of (dare I say it? sure I dare) pancakes, coupla eggs, plenty of bacon and sausage, biscuits and gravy, OJ, black coffee. Salt and pepper everything except the pancakes, OJ, and coffee. Order seconds on the sausage and bacon. Cap off with a Marlboro and a shot of vodka. Then, a quick one-mile jog. Then hurl. Then nap.

Two hours later - good as new! So get out there and get to drinking again, boy! Remember Coglin's Law: Women will always judge a man by the amount of alcohol he can drink. Prosst!

Vitamin B1 in 60,000 recommended dosage. It will not only prevent a hangover, it protects your liver from damage. Medical students have known this forever as a quick shot in the arm to wake up and get ready for medical exams.

Water, ibuprofen, sleep, eating some eggs when you feel up to it. I think sleep is the only thing that actually helps.

McDonald's nasty ass Quarter Pounder and a great big glass of ice water. The only cure for a hangover.

How about you make yourself throw up? Would that help?
