Happy New Year . . . Curing A Hangover

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Professionals, CT 203-206-0754 REB.0759001

 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.

Happy New Year

The best cure is to not indulge to begin with. I have never liked the feeling alcohol has on the body the next day. so I just dont drink.

Drinking to excess and vice grips or a c clamp on your head the next day is something usually cured back in college from driving the white porcelain bus through out the night, next days. Something about dry heaves makes the getting hammered, OUI's and your kids watching and asking what is wrong with dad or mom is not a pretty family mental image. A glass of champagne at midnight should not cause a hangover unless it is from the last bottom in the case. Glad I feel good today while my college kids sleep in and I watch some old black and white Jimmy Stewart movies. Happy New Year.

Andrew, I've seen people the morning after they drank the last glass of champagne from the last bottle in the case. It was painful just to see. Thanks for stopping and Happy New year

Diane, I understand that now, but I also now respect the words of an ex sales manager of mine who would remark to non drinkers:  I feel sorry for people that don't drink because when they wake up in the morning that's the best they are going to feel all day'  Happy New Year to you

Al & Peg, My ex would get on me so bad during the party about what was being consumed and would give you that look that would say wait until tomorrow. There was no way I was going to give her never mind anybody else that satisfaction.  Here's a picture of her the last time I saw here in her new car

Carra, as I noted in one of my responses, for people that don't drink when they get up in the morning that's the best they're going to feel all day. From my life's experiences, I now know both sides of that profile and it's still a 50-50 line

Craig, maybe a taste of bad kibble? or you just keep forgetting to fill his water dish. Happy New year

Ed... A banana before you go to bed, along with lots of water always did the trick for me when I was in my twenties... I don't go that overboard any more.. no need to.

Happy 2010!!!  Much success and prosperity Ed for the coming year.

Ed, way back when, when my nutsy family got together, my uncle would stand at the bottom of the stairs and hand us aspirin and a large glass of water.... prior to going to sleep.

I hardly drink anymore. I hate that feeling, so I try to avoid it if at all possible. But if I do drink, I have a drink with a full glass of water, I am taking NO chances, LOL.

And I see you didn't mention a little hair of the dog... when I was in Russia they insisted on it. The first morning I woke up and came into the kitchen for breakfast, and Mr. Host had a bottle of vodka on the table with a shot glass for me, and a big huge grin on his face, bloodshot eyes, and oh did I want to die! But I had been prepared by my professional Russian hubby. I actually kept a bottle of water in my purse, and would fill the glass before anyone could put more vodka in it. Those Russians can drink! I managed to get out of having a shot that morning, and was ever so tricky the rest of my visit.

Nice shot of the X.... :X
