    I find that the best way to get around a hangover completly, is to drink a full glass of water before you go to bed/pass out. I was told this by my father, who said "Hangovers are caused by dehydration."


    Anyone know a diffrent/better way?

    i hear water is the best way too, there are commercials for chaser pills or something that " absorb hangover causing toxing" wich later explode in your lower intestine causing major damage, but i dont know if they really get rid of one, those are the only ways ive ever heard of.

    First, you must know HOW to drink.



    Try a few cups of water between drinks. See how that works.

    Them chaser pills are garbage! They don't work worth a shit.



    I tested them out last weekend and my head was pounding the day after drinking and also I was throwing up.



    I was drinking Jack though so maybe thats why.

    or maybe its because all the toxins it absorbed were released all at once in your body? Thats my theory on what those things do. Thanks for confirming they suck though str8

    I have always found that drinking one 20oz bottle of water for every two beers, as well as making sure there's something other than beer/alcohol (i.e. food) in my stomach before I go to bed, has worked wonders. No hangovers, even after drinking 12+ beers in a night (yeah I do piss a lot for a while afterward, but it's worth it in the end).

    basicly alcohol dehydrates you, it does something in the liver while the filteration takes place, then it takes up all the water in your body,and dehydration casues headache and shit...


    i think no one would be able remember to get a glass of water between drinking or before going to bed, so the most helpful thing is get up in the morning when you are awake, not monging out in bed, cos the headache jus wont go. then get yourself some water and make a cup of tea, caffine will give you energy to do stuff...

    Waiting until morning to drink water is no good. When I've tried that in the past, the water itself makes me throw up (after a very heavy-drinking night of course). The only way to stand half-a-shot at not being worthless the next day is to force yourself to get plenty of water in your system before bed.

      It's the only thing that works for me and my friends too.

    I cant understand you people. You guys say drink 20oz of water between beers, and after shots and stuff, but god, doesnt water taste horrible to you while your drinking?

    Not for me. But then again I drink water nearly constantly anyway, so to me it's no big deal. I used to avoid it like the plague, which is strange because it makes me feel so much "cleaner". I find it's actually easier to drink more when you drink water at the same time, while you would think that filling up on water would leave less room for beer etc., it actually works in the opposite way for me. Kinda strange.

    You got that right str8.


    And KT, that is strange. Whenever I drink water within like 2 hours of drinking alcohol, i'll puke. Its funny, I have to take pills with shots, if i take them with water, i'll puke them all up.

    Damn Psilocybe, that's crazy. Do you mean you always have to take pills with shots, alcohol or no? I know this guy who just CAN'T take a pill, he violent pukes everytime he tries to swallow one (even a little itty-bitty D). So we have to crush them up and put them in juice or some shit. I tried it once and it was NASTY. You get like 8 Vicodin ES in a glass of orange juice and it has this chalky consistency. Shudder.

    imo, the best hangover cure is fruit/vitamin C, aspirin, and water. after that,a good hot shower and nap should cover it.

    Do you notice a hangover is worse if you "mix" what you are drinking? Do you get a worse hangover if you drink beer and wine or whiskey and rum or beer and vodka.

    That's one reason why some people don't mix beers. They stick with one brand.
