I understand you are looking for a hangover cure, so I will try to write quietly. I bet last night was fun, but God knows you are paying for it now. Luckily for you, this is not the first time someone drank themselves into a hangover. There is hope! Here are some tried and true hangover cures that really do the trick.

Have Lots Of Water, Juice, or Sports Drink

Honestly, this is something you should have thought about doing last night, but hindsight is 20-20 and I am not here to be your mom. But that is mostly what a hangover is – self inflicted dehydration. You were basically lying to your body last night, pouring in liquid that ended up doing the opposite of what it should. Hence, drunk.

But now, in the cold light of day, you feel like a raisin. So try to get yourself back to grape status and drink as much water as your body will allow.


Hair Of The Dog

The idea behind this hairbrained hangover cure is “how can you be hungover when you are drunk?” which does have a strange sense of logic to it. And, strangely enough, it can work! That is, if you can stomach it. For many people, this seems about as sensible as treating a burn with sulfuric acid, but hey, whatever works.

For my taste, a Bloody Mary or a nice stout beer are the perfect way to tell your hangover to piss off.


Greasy Breakfast Foods

The one time you really get to say “fuck off” to whatever diet you are on is when you are hungover. While there is no scientific evidence that greasy food actually works as a hangover cure, you shovel down a few sticks of bacon and tell me that didn’t put some wind back in your sails.

Sometimes, we get it right on the first try. Invented back in 1931, this sodium bicarbonate capsule was designed for “morning relief,” which is just 30’s slang for getting kicked in the head by three too many whiskeys. This magical, dissolvable tablet provides relief from minor aches, pains, indigestion, and inflammation – aka the perfect hangover remedy. Plop plop fizz fizz, oh what a relief it is!

And if none of these cures work for you, lie down, throw on a movie, and nap like you have never napped before.
