A couple of asprin washed down with PediaLyte. PediaLyte is a much better electrolyte than gatorade. Too bad about the taste though.

I only have enough drinks to get a nice buzz, then I stop drinking anything but water.

Exploding into the toilet in the morning and then laying around watching "How It's Made" and feeling like sh*t for the rest of the day. Works every time. I'm always fine by the next day.

I don't really drink anymore, but I will say that this recipe never, ever worked once in my history of drinking, which is long and storied. I never detected any significant benefits from drinking lots of water or taking vitamins.

Could just be my metabolism or something.

1. Stay drunk as long as you can.
2. Drink as much water as you can handle.
3. Watch a Pixar movie or Black Dynamite on repeat for the rest of the day.

Coffee, a smoke, and a hatred of all existence will get you through the day. *shrug* I don't know if you can rightly call it a cure though.

Food prior to drinking and during if I can be bothered / remember. Multivitamins / H2O prior to bed, as much of each as I can stomach. Caffeine in all its wonderful forms the next day.
Sounds like a lot but works most times I remember ALL the elements.

Gatorade or another sports drink followed by more sleep.

Agreed. Big spliff, chased by a nice big cup of coffee. By the time yer done w/ coffee, the munchies have kicked in and yer ready for a big plate of steak, eggs and fried potatoes smothered in hot sauce, paired with a large grapefuit juice.

Hangover vanquished.

Getting up off my ass. Semi-outdoor activity like taking out the trash, which requires taking a shower and putting on clothes.

Coffee, some type of bagel or muffin. Oatmeal probably.

Maybe a breakfast burrito if it's not too bad. Then the coffee eggs and oatmeal... leave my system after a short time. But it's worth it.

Weed's definitely a huge help but the trick with the water is to drink it after you're done drinking booze of any kind so as to offset dehydration caused by alcohol; preferably you're drinking a litre or two right when you get home/wherever your crashing that night and you do this right before passing out.

Thanks, now I have another item to put on my watch list for tonight.

I usually get enough pain in the few days prior to the holidays that by the time they roll around I don't want anything to drink. Like now, I don't plan on having another drink for at least several days.

The only true cure for hangovers is water and rest.

I just have one drink with alcohol to celebrate whaever the evening is about, and diet coke from then on. Don't miss the hangovers or throwing up.

Good alcohol genes.

My ancestors are mostly Scottish, German, and Native American. So I ended up with no tolerance and a cast iron liver.

I've never had a hang over in my life despite drinking most nights. I used to think I had had a few, since I would occasionally feel rather bleh the day after I drank a few bottles of wine or a case of beer, then I saw a real, honest-to-god hangover that a friend had. The only time I've ever had anything even comparable to that was the time I picked up what was probably a salmonella infection from some bad food.

I don't recommend this for everyone, but it's always worked for me.

Answer is two-fisted drinking: beer in one hand, glass of water in the other.

Wait....to have a hangover (and need some sort of 'cure' for the aftereffects) means that you would have stopped drinking at some point.
FAIL!

My problem with the large amounts of water is that I wake up VERY drunk and have to make my way to the bathroom in the dark. No thanks

1 200mg Ibuprofen and a 16oz water at the bedside. Set the alarm for 4hrs.

Wake up in 4hrs consume both and go back to sleep. Wake up feeling like a million bucks.
