    OK, not really. But it strikes every imbibing Guy and Doll sooner or later. What do you do? How do you nurse the Next Day From Hell?

    Aspirin? Lots of water? Hair of the Dog? Or (gag) raw eggs?

    I drink a lot of water, drink a cup of coffee and for some reason I have to have salt. I normally can't eat for a few hours after waking up with a hangover and the first thing I crave is something really salty. I feel much better after that. When I was younger I used to have a Bloody Mary to cure my hangover but can't do that anymore because it seems to only make it worse. This is why I don't drink that much anymore. :rolleyes:

    I don't hardly drink these days, but what usually helps me is juice, esp. cranberry. Water's just too, well, watery to sooth my stomach. And the LAST thing I want is any more alcohol.
     
  4. I'm sorry to hear you are feeling bad :( I'm no expert but yes, lots of coffee and liquids, aspirin... I wouldn't try raw eggs :eek: perhaps try to sleep a little, that sort of thing. Hope you feel better soon!

    Gatorade and Aspirin if you're in a hurry. If you have the time, greasy diner food and like 3 cups of coffee. And under no circumstances are you to forget the sunglasses.
     
  6. This may sound like the last thing you would feel like having but, seriously,..a nice , big, greasy breakfast at Macdonalds does the trick everytime.:D

    oh, yes, i see now jay already said this before me....But, there you go.. that just confirms it. Actually, now that i think about it...go to a place that's licensed and wash down that greasy breakfast with a Bloody caesar!

    I always get a craving for McDonald's the next morning...its the only time I'll eat it! Picks me right up.
     
  8. ...after a good night out I recommend peace and quiet the next day!
    Drink liquids, watch a movie, etc. :)

  9. Easier said than done sometimes Feraud;) I have 2 kids and they need my attention, no matter what! I remember 2 years ago, coming in VERY late from a work Christmas party, and then spending the next day in total agony,consuming Aspirin & coffee like candy, and trying oh-so-hard to be cheerful, when in fact my head felt like it was being hammered everytime my feet touched the floor!....but for those of you that can..cheers:cheers1:

    Where did I read that an ice cream float was the best thing??? [huh]

    Never tried it, but the caffeine was supposed to work on the headache and the coldness from the ice cream worked on a queasy stomach.

    I can see why that would be because Caffeine is supposed to be good for headaches because it dilates the blood vessels.

    I agree diner food is great when hungover. I love home fries with tons of catsup and a coke when I am hungover. It must be the grease from the home fries.

    Typically, I still have enough facilities left when I'm heading to bed, to remember to drink a bunch of water, and take an aspirin, before I hit the sack. That always helps me out.

    Well I don't know that'd it'd ease your pain, but a swallow full of diesel fuel will get you back to seeing straight and put you back on your toes.

    This is my usual remedy as well but if I am still hung over in the morning a nice cholestrol increasing breakfast is just the ticket. Eggs, bacon, hashbrowns, toast with butter, coffee.
     
  18. I must be odd. I rarely have a hangover, no matter how much I've drank, and only usually feel bad if I jump right out of bed, then a cup of coffee and an aspirin or two and 15 minutes later, I feel fine.

    The experts suggest that this is the way to go. A vitaman B intake also helps.

    Anyone tried the German Underberg tonic which they use for hangovers?

    While I've never been hungover, I know that alcohol dehydrates you, so I'd recommend drinking lots of water, and for the really rough ones try a Gatorade, it replaces lost electrolytes, and let me tell ya, when you're dehydrated they work wonders!

    I hope you feel better soon!:)
