I think water helps a ton in general but that's not what I'm really talking about since I don't drink water when I am having a few beers. I'll have maybe half a bottled water before I hit the sack with one B Complex... and that works.

So... I don't think it is a hydration thing, at least in the times I've tried it.

I've also had a couple of other people try it and, like I was saying before, they now swear by it.... and I don't tell them to drink any more water than they normally would.

I've always been in the "water is key" camp. But lately the amount of water I end up drinking just makes me too full to enjoy more beer. Not that I drink to get drunk, but I just get a little buzzed at the rate of 1:1 beer water ratio. And at the end of the night I am drinking a beer that is just not enjoyable due to my stomach being full.

I'll try the b complex thing and report results.

It was mentioned, but Pedialyte. I can't stress it enough.

Cool... Let me know how it works. I haven't had a single person not come back totally convinced.

And yeah, I'm kinda all set with Pedialyte. If that works for folks, absolutely, stick with it and I'm not bad-mouthing it... But... (there's always a "but"), I think it tastes like sht and it's a a bit more expensive, to say the least. I can but 100 tablets of B Complex for $10. That's 100 hangovers killed. I would imagine 100 bottles of Pedialyte would be a bit more than $10. Plus like I was saying, I hate the taste of that stuff. Popping a. Itamin is like popping a quick aspirin before bed. I can put two in my pocket wherever I am going and don't have to keep buying and carrying around baby food. Ehhh. Ok, maybe I did bad mouth it a little.

I'll still just pop a pill smaller than a dime in my pocket for later.

I'm a convert, just preaching, hoping to bring more people into the light!

LOL!

Ordered a bottle of 360 for $14 on amazon. We'll see how it works this weekend.

Rockstar energy drink keeps me from getting hangovers. I drink a can of it throughout the night while I'm drinking beers. If I don't drink it I can guarantee a hangover headache the next morning if I over imbibe. I've always suspected that it was the b vitamins in it that does it though, so maybe I'll try the b complex route.

I swear by the stuff and I think the worst folks have to lose is the effort of grabbing a bottle next time they are in a grocery store or pharmacy... That and about $10

Or $14 for 360!!! Whoo-hooo!! No hangovers for five days shy of a full year for $14. That's a bah-gin!!

Vitamin B6 in particular (pyridoxine) has been studied and shown to mitigate hangover symptoms. But it must be taken in quantities several hundred times the recommended daily dose (although it is generally accepted that the recommended daily dose is woefully inadequate...somewhere around 80mg per day).

B6 stand alone is cheap and is sold in 200mg tablets. I take six tablets a day (3, 2-tablet doses) as part of my daily regimen.

Hydration is the primary mitigant against hangovers. Ethenol is a powerful dehydration agent. (How does Mom get water out of your ears??? Pour in a few drops of alcohol.) That sharp pain in the back of your skull during a severe hangover, is simply your brain bouncing around a dry cranium. That fluid (the same fluid that supports your spinal column) is what suspends your brain and keeps it from slamming against your skull.
