Water. Lots of it. Then some more water. Then have a couple big glasses of water.

Then a huge sub sandwich from Jimmy John's. and wash it down with some water.

Hangover cures begin while you're still drinking. When you're about two hours out from crashing, start your water diet and a little bit of pain killer (something to thin the blood and open the blood vessels). You'll have to piss in the middle of the night, but that's status quo for me

2 advil and a glass of water before bed. I prefer the anti-hangover rather then curing the hangover

Now I use gatorade, water doesn't do it for me. Plus I dont have to go to bed feeling water logged.

Several years ago I would visit a fire-medic buddy of mine. An IV bag and some o2 will kick a hangover with a quickness.

Before bed: 2 advil and a liter of water.
On waking: Gatorade and a cool shower, followed by strong black coffee.
After: Grease for breakfast. Biscuits 'n Gravy, or my eggless breakfast burritos, with more black coffee.

Convienent that this discussion is occurring during GABF, no?

I drink several glasses of cold water to soothe the tongue then a couple glasses of WARM to HOT water to balance out the temperature in my stomach so I don't feel like I have an ice cube in there.

Then again, drinking 98F water would do the trick too, but I have to have something cold on my tongue first. You know the feeling.

Gatorade and adding electrolytes back into your body can't hurt/work well also.

Advil, Gatorade, and bananas.
Advil before you go to bed, along with a big glass of water, and then again when you wake up !
The reasoning behind Advil should be obvious, Gatorade re-hydrates the body, and bananas re-supply it with potassium, which alchohol depletes.
Avoid coffee, or anything else with caffiene. That will just dehydrate you even more !





Back in the old days, we also used to roll up a nice fat one...allegedly.

I might be in the minority here. I agree with drinking a crap ton of water, but when you wake up get in a long slow run, think like 5+ miles. Then shower, more water, and you're good to go. The run will feel terrible, but the rest of the day you'll be good.

Water and aspirin to prevent.
Potato soup, sausage, coffee, water and hair-o-the-dog to cure(sorta).
