These were sent in to Hungover.net and seeing how I'm feeling.. I wish I would have found out about them earlier. :)
We like Papilion's style. He says "lots of fresh home made orange juice (usually 3 oranges and 1 lemon) then a nice long shower and then lots of sex :)"
COLLECT THE CAPS
Bill from Bondi, Australia says, "When I'm out on the squirt I take the top from every beer I drink and put it in my pocket. When I get home i count the caps and that's how many glasses of water I gotta get through. Works even better when you're seeing double."
SEE THE DOCTOR
Our local doctor writes, "As a lay MD, I prescribe for you head-holding sorry lot, 500-1000 mgs aspirin, a rehydrating sports drink like Gatorade, and one 25 mg Dramamine (Dimenhydrinate) tablet which will drive vertigo, nausea, and Satan himself from yer gulliver."
THE 5 MINUTE CHALLENGE
Crazy Monkey Man says: "My trick for not getting a hungover is to drink at least 5-6 full glasses of water when i'm at my most drunk, right before I pass out. This way I'm not dehydrated, and I enjoy seeing how many glasses of water I can drink in under 5 minutes."
Ronan from Ireland says, "eat a bananna as they contain potassium which is guaranteed to revitalise your body after a heavy session."
"The best and greatest cure for that groggy nausia feeling is drinking ginger. It's been uses by boaties to cure sea sickness (hence nausia) for hundreds of years. If you buy sea sick tablet they will be 100% ginger. Go down to the Vege shop and buy some ginger root. If you have a juice extractor crush up the ginger put in some Orange Juice and scull. It burns ya through but it works like a dream!"
Caset Rae reckons "the miracle cure is Excedrin Migraine. Its got a little bit of caffeine, pain reliever and anti-nausea medicine. It'll have you feeling better in 30 min."
Improving on Pedialite is Mr Drunk C. Bum. "Pedialite works great but it tastes awful. Try Pedialite Popsicles. They taste better, have the same effect and work just as quickly. It's also easier to keep the ice down when you are feeling sick and it's nice and cold to help your pounding head."
"Personally, whenever I go out on a bender I put together a Graciepoos' special hangover kit. First there's the vitamin B tabs washed down with Andrews Antacid saturated water. For those who are not fond of taking too many pills, a banana will suffice instead to take care of the mind numbing headache. Finally, the thing without which the whole process would be a waste of time and effort. The wonder that is the toasted fried egg sandwich. Drinking lots of water during the proceedings goes without saying."
REUBEN SLATER'S 1,2,3
Reuben Slater wrote in and said, "Behold the 1, 2, 3 of hangover prevention & removal. 1. Zantac tablet before getting stuck in. 2. Aspro in gatorade or similar sports drink before bed. 3. Eggs with bacon, tomatos mushrooms and fried bread in the morning."
