Original Coca-cola. Squeeze in half a lemon and 3-4 dashes of Angostura bitters. Water + advil. Later, hot tub/jacuzzi/long hot shower if you can.

aside from sleeping it off, nothing has ever worked for me. ive always gotten really hungover. i get drunk about 1x per week and usually end up suffering the whole day. i find that if i wake myself up for a bit, then go back to sleep for maybe an hour, that helps alittle. more so than if i would have slept that extra hour to begin with (if that makes sense). i have to be woken up and go back to sleep. not sure why. my brother in law recently suggested that a bananna always does it for him. ive yet to try that out. that last thing i want when im hungover is a long mushy fallic object in my mouth.

A guy walks into a doctors office and says "Doc my arm hurts when I move it like this." The doctor looks at him and says "Don't do that it hurts."

Aren't you supposed to just sleep through a hangover?

If not, Alka Seltzer is the supposed quick fix in my circle.

If you can manage it, the best hangover cure is to stay up until you sober up at least a little. I know, I know, you don't feel like it when you're drunk, but if you've got the presence of mind knowing the next day you need to feel OK, try and push through it. Microwave a hot soup. Turn on the TV. Alternate hot soup with ice water. Just don't get on a public internet forum! Not when you're drunk!

You might end up getting less sleep but functional/tired is better than non-functionally hung over.

Can you explain why you do this and how it would prevent hangovers?

Very surprised that no one mentioned this yet, When I thought everyone in here wouldve said the same thing......


EAT SOMETHING!!!!

I drink once or twice a week, friday, saturday. After im done drinking I gotta eat something, whether it be sit down breakfast, some Wendys, or some left over pizza in the fridge. What ever it is it has to be meaty or kind of greasy.

Im not talking pounding a Baconator down. You could if you want.

A couple slices of left over pizza for example, A couple of 5 piece nugs, Scrambled eggs with toast and sausage.

I wake up hangover free as long as I eat before I go to sleep, and I will drink until I cant drink anymore sometimes...most of the time lol.

The only true cure is time. You've poisoned yourself, therefore you have to giver you body's enzymes and liver enough time to work and detoxify your blood stream from the toxic metabolites alcohol generates (see acetaldehyde)
