My favorite is a breakfast burrito from the local shady joint and gallons of Gatorade. What's is yours?

Drinking water always seems to make me feel worse, but a soft drink or Gatorade helps a lot.

Also, for whatever reason, when I wake up hungover I always seem to feel better after a shower.

The trick is prevention. Huge glass of water, ibuprofen, and a B complex vitamin right before bed.

If I forget that, then lot's of water, caffeine and some greasy food the next day seems to help.

A shower, and a big bacon and toasted wheat bread sandwich always works wonders for me.

If I was careless in my 'prevention' then the best thing is to wake up an hour before you need to be awake, eat a banana, drink a large glass of water or Gatorade, take 4 aspirin (not advil/Tylenol/aleve) and go back to sleep. When you wake up, have a hearty and greasy breakfast and drink more fluids. Take some painkillers if you need 'em.

Can you tell I have had a few hangovers???
btw, this thread should be moved to chit-chat.

Ugh, I get baaaaad ones. My problem is I'll get stomach sick with the headache, so eating/drinking my way out of the hangover isn't always an option.

My hangover cure:

1/2 oz Pepto Bizmol
1/2 oz of something 90 proof such as gin or vodka
1/2 oz Niquill
1 ibuprofen crushed and dissolved into the above mixture

Down the ole hatch she goes, and go back to bed.

Besides that I would say ice water and sleep.

Not to be a...er...buzzkill (pun not intended) but NyQuil contains Acetaminophen which can do serious damage to your liver when combined with alcohol. You might want to steer clear of that.
