You're just postponing the inevitable...

You could try tapering off over the course of a few weeks.....

The production of acetaldehyde in the body really screws you up the next day, its caused when you overload the alcohol dehydrogenase system iirc, its also responsible for that feeling of being really drunk ie not tipsy from the ethanol but falling down, can't stand up drunk from the acetaldehyde, you might as well be sniffing paint thinner if you over indulge in a big way .

Ahhh nothing like a Bloody Mary to ward off the morning shakes. I miss those days. I think I've found my favorite forum after 13 years online!

Exactly, an as your still drunk in the AM your better able to deal with the oncoming hangover by eating food drinking plenty of fluids etc, rather than if your asleep and at the mercy of it.

On painkillers, FWIW: aceteminofen (sp?) (i.e. Tylenol) has been fouind to be extremely hard on the liver when combined with even small amounts of alcohol in the system.

So the best practice at this point would apparently be to avoid aceteminofen if you drink, and especially don't take it when you've been drinking excessively.

I swear by blue Powerade. A bottle of that usually cures my hangover. I keep the dry stuff on hand just in case, good for the stomach flu too. I got into that in college when I got to the point that the morning after having a bit too much to drink water would make me sick.

Ans honestly the only time I get a bad hangover is when I mix beer ans whiskey. I don't know what it is. . .I had a couple beers and a nice size drink of Maker's Mark and I was messed up the next morning.
