Time travel back to yesterday and refrain from drinking when you arrive (though I usually have to be drunk to time travel, so I guess that's a paradox)

Otherwise, bloody maries.

have a drink and go hide in the corner until the pain goes away! I recommend a couple ounces of vodka in a large glass filled 50/50 with gatorade and red bull

if you can't have a drink....lots of water, a gatorade and a double 1/4 pounder with cheese.

Time.....it is the only thing that really works but Hawks idea of the vodka/gatorade/red bull thing would help a bit. I have done a similar method with decent results.

I have gotten to the point where I cannot stand hangovers because they seem to last so much longer than years ago. I vowed this year to avoid them at all costs. So far this year I have had 1.5 hangovers which is not too bad.

.5 was a minor one from a New Years party

and the 1 was from hanging out with Cooter and Livermush a couple of Saturday's ago but I went into that knowing I was going to pay the next day.

i avoid taking OTC meds cuz they will do a number on your stomach over time. saltman's suggestion is a great one if you like to use that sort of thing.

and yes....JR was right, Hawk's idea is a great idea! Little hair of the dog mixed in with some instant energy and some electrolytes...if you can afford to be a veg for a while, works like a damn...for me anyway!

chug any kind of fruit juice and water. take a multi-vitamin. Take about 2-3 showers the morning and day after, scrub every inch of your skin. Do some cardio.

Your body tries to get rid of impurities through sweat and pee. So sweat and pee as much as you can. But make sure you are staying hydrated, drink as much liquids as possible.

Don't drink more alcohol that just extends it. What I do above works just as fast. If you have a really bad one then nothing will work except time. Take something for the headache/sour stomach but that's it.

The easiest way is just through prevention, take a B vitamin, drink 1 water for every 2 beers minimum. Take a shower as soon as you wake up. If you drank so much that you wake up in a bathtub then your already ahead of the game:D

That is some great advice also. I have used the multivitamin/B vitamin and cadio thing and it worked great. Hardest part is getting out the door and getting some cardio but even a brisk walk around the block will make you feel much better. As for the vitamins, my wife has injectable B vitamins at the house and a terrible hangover is about the only time I could stick myslef but it does work.

ya...I find the sooner I get out of bed and do something, the better. Usually why road trip hangovers are so much better than home hangovers...you typically don't have the option to sleep in much!

JR...where does your wife get the injectable vitamin B? I was using some in a diet program last year and it worked really well for energy levels etc....but the program was crazy expensive!

It is prescribed by her doctor. Because Crohn's disease has taken away so much of her "insides", she is no longer able to absorbed any nutrients through food or pill form so she has to inject all her vitamins and some of her medicine. I can always tell when she takes it cause she goes from lifeless to the energizer bunny, or maybe she just has a crystal meth problem.

sounds like a lot of fun! not

the first few times I was injected I couldn't sit still, at all! Very good stuff, but just like anything else, I found my body sure got used to it pretty fast.

is she constantly scratching at invisible bugs?

I've found that spicy foods and exercise work well. A motrin never hurts either.

Prickly Pear juice is proven to be nature's best hangover cure.

But, I will say just this: Water, Water and more Water. A hangover is basically advanced dehydration. Alcohol dehydrates you and you don't have enough water in your system to complete your Krebs cycles (And since coffee naturally dehydrates you as well, using it as a hangover cure is a bad bad idea). So chug lots of water. A few weeks ago I got wrecked at the bar and woke up Sunday at about 6 am with a paralyzing hangover. I forced down three 12 oz glasses of water, went back to sleep, and woke up at 9 am feeling much better (still a little woozy, but no headache).

Of course water alone won't do it, you also need to replenish your potassium and vitamin B, which is where fruit juice comes in. But water cures about 90% of what ails you.

I've had hangovers so bad I couldn't even keep water down. Chug a glass of water and two advil, thirty seconds later I'm looking at the advils in the toilet. Baddddd badddd badddd.....I don't drink like that any more and I sure don't miss those days.

Water and sweat it out. Cardio or manual labor. I save my getting smashed nights to coincide with when I need to cut the grass.
