Well, we made it to 2010 and some of those that partied a bit too much or over indulged may have a problem on this the first day of the new decade. There are a slew of experts with the best cure for a hangover, probably the best cure being the simplest, 'Should't have had so much' That cure is pointless.
Hangovers are proof that God has a sense of humor and may well be in touch with his feminine side, because the hangover itself had to have been something started by a woman just to get back at a man.
The hangover is very simply a matter of dehydration. Alcohol absorbs water in the body and the pain that is left behind needs to be eased. Drinking water, preferably with some lemon squeezed into it will not only start the hydration process but also put back some vitamin C.
Coffee Even though you're extremely tired and a cup of coffee seems like the best way to wake you up, try to stay away from it.
Caffeine will only dehydrate you more, and since it's also a diuretic, it will not help your stomach. Milk and other dairy products are also not a good idea; they may make you feel more queasy.
Ginger Ale If you don't want to drink water, try a glass of flat ginger ale, which helps soothe your stomach.
Juice Juice is also a good idea; vitamin C will help give you the energy you'll need.
Obey Your Thirst Sports drinks such as Gatorade have been known to work for some people.
Take Another Ride Chances are there's someone sleeping next to you that resembles a girl, and she most likely feels like she was run over by the same truck that you were. What you both need is a good ol' shot of endorphins. The temporary high produced by the endorphins released during sex will be the pick me up you need to get your ass out of bed. Just make sure you wake her up first.
The reality of God being a male is the fact that there are football games on also. As any male can attest, chances are your mate didn't drink last night, and is just waiting for the opportunity to let you know how bad you were and to take some pleasure in your pain.
Never let them see you sweat, or more precisely this is where we earn our Academy Awards. Under no circumstances should you let on how bad you feel. Maybe even get on that exercise bike to show how you are going to start the new year. But be careful to drink a lot of water while you 'exercise'.
Once the football games begin, you'll have the chance to rest. Sleeping on the couch while the games go on is a standard holiday occurence. Console yourself with the fact that it usually takes a day to get over a hangover, and if you can pull this off, you can content yourself with the knowledge that you will be in better shape by St Patrick's Day.
