Those things scare the hell out of me; Beer Sh!ts are bad enough, start mixing in energy drinks and I'm afraid of blowing the ****ing toilet up.

Having SWMBO pick me up a bottle of B complex today while she's out.

will report back. If this works, so help me, I will cry a tear of joy. I've never been able to find anything to rid/prevent hangovers, and I get them sooooo bad.

Put it this way: I dont even remember the last time I was "drunk"-- If I can say "I've got a buzz," I have to stop drinking right then......

and will still have nausea/headache/vomiting/beersh!ts the next day.

Test it and let me know.

I don't ever take a ton of it. One simple 100mg tablet before bed if I have had a few beers but one 100mg tablet before drinking a ton and then 1 before bed. That's all... 200mg at the most is all I've ever needed. Water... Half a glass although I don't think some extra water would hurt at all.

But yeah, trust me.... I have been shedding tears of joy and telling everyone I know.

Wow, after reading this thread, I feel fortunate. I think I've only had 2 hangovers ever.

99.99% of the time I wake up after 5-6hours of sleep and feel great.

I used to pull a swing shift all nighter every few weeks. On one such occasion, I hadn't gotten much sleep before. So, I drank 6 or 7 Red Bull tall boys during the shift. My penis was vibrating. My finger tips felt both numb and hyper sensitive at the same time, and I have no idea what my toes felt like.

I forgot to buy some tonight....looks like I can't test it out now. The real question is, If this doesn't work for me, will you admit the giants are better? Is that the amount of confidence you have in this?

I've taken some 5-hour energy to offset the sleepy feeling from drinking too many beers and I've noticed my hangover is much less in the morning. 5-Hour Energy is packed with B vitamins. I think it has 8000% RDA of B12.

And I like it because even though it can help me not feel sleepy, it doesn't seem to cause a problem with actually sleeping!

Absolutely!! I am MORE than happy to admit that if it doesn't work. Hell, I'll admit it now. The San Fran Giants are WAY better than the Red Sox
