No, nice tall vanilla milkshake or what Drummerboy suggested.
I kid you not. The grease soaks up the booze and a person needs that nourishment (not the grease, but what goes along with the grease).

And I did not say Tabasco. I said carne asada (which is marinated steak).

However, I am one who needs to drink water or some other non-alcoholic drink in between alcoholic drinks, and I also nibble throughout.
Ah, yes, eating while you're drinking. How could I forget that?

I'd still never recommend mixing alcohols though. I mixed wine with beer once and woke up with the most splitting headache ever. I just think that to mix anything is asking for big trouble. Also, when younger and when I did drink the hard stuff, the hangovers lasted until 5 p.m. If you stick to the lighter stuff, they are gone by no later that noon. Plus, the hard liquors really are harder on your liver and will kill you faster. At least with red wine, in moderation, there are some health benefits. I do believe red wine is the only form of alcohol for which there is any benefit at all - and I do believe this is because it contains resevreotal (ok, I knew I was going to horribly misspell that).

LOL! Nice spelling of resveratrol! Firefox doesn't recognize it anyway, even if you spell it right, no worries.

Nowadays, I rarely drink. I'll have the occasional margarita (living in Tucson, it's practically mandatory!) or glass of wine, and the obligatory New Year's toast, but that's usually about it.

for every glass of booze you have....also have a glass of water...a hangover stems from dehydration...just like johna01374 said.

Before you go to bed, eat carbs. Drink lots of water.

The older you get, the harder it is to "bounce" back.

Just drink less. It is not worth the pain.

I very rarely drink enough to get a hangover. Just not a fan of feeling like crap.

Having read the other responses here my treatment for hangovers is much less holistic. I take 4 aspirin with a big glass of water then follow that with a shot and a beer. It's usually enough to help me fall asleep again and I feel better by the time I wake up.

I'm not a frequent drinker, so when I do "throw a few back" I'm literally physically in pain the next day, it is awful!!!!

I can't help you with remedies, but this sure took me back to my drunkest spree long ago when I suffered a hangover like this for three days. But I had more than a few drinks. I smoked at the time, couldn't even smell it during those three days.

I never got that drunk since.
