I'm mostly a wine & beer kinda gal...I love Pino Grigio this time of year, with some ice in it, but I have been avoiding wine like the plague lately because of the nasty hangovers I get. So, what do you do to either avoid, or get over, your hangovers?

One thing that worked for a couple of months...with every glass of wine, I would drink a glass of water. I would sleep well and wake up feeling pretty good. Unfortunately, it stopped working.

The only thing that seems to work most of the time, & I hate this method, is sweating it out. If I get my heartrate up & sweat during the hangover, it usually will go away.

So what are your 'cures'??

More water for the dehydration, B-complex and more sleep for the fatigue, and jello or ginger ale for the irritated stomach.

Gatorade is a must have in any serious drinker's arsenal.

I found that the quality of the wine greatly determines how I feel the next day. Some wines have something in them that makes me have fitful sleep or wake up with a headache (and this has happened with only one glass). I've started seeking out quality wines and make note of the ones that don't affect me adversely. My usual price range is $10-$12.

As far as what happens if I do wake up with a hangover...plenty of water (I drink sparking water), B and C vitamins, a hearty protein filled meal and as much exercise as I can muster.

I prefer the other stuff -- PowerAde? -- and plain yogurt if my tummy is roiling.

Another thing that has helped in the past, which I can't seem to achieve anymore, was to wake up normal time (6-7am), go to the bathroom, take some advil & go back to sleep for a few hours. The few times I was able to get more sleep, I would wake up feeling more refreshed. Unfortunately lately it's impossible for me to get back to sleep.

I know , what it's NOT - milk! I hardly drink anything anymore, but once I drank tequila. Woke up really thirsty, didn't have any pop, water didn't sound good, so I drank some milk and went back to sleep. Woke up later and threw up curdled, cottage cheese looking milk. BLECH.

Water, water, and more water.

Vitamins

Sleep.


The absolute BEST cure for a hangover, though, is to not drink so much that you get drunk. When you drink that much, you're dehydrating your body and that's why you get the hangover. You can always drink 2 glasses of water to every glass of wine you drink -- that might help. My ex was an alcoholic but he would drink water constantly and he never had a hangover.

Try taking a Tylenol and eating a little something before you start drinking should prevent a hangover and sip wine don't try and guzzle glass after glass

If I am a drunk I take an 800mg Motrin before I go to bed and wake up good to go. Mostly. I am not a doctor, but it works for me.
