or…How to Prevent a Hangover

A tablespoon of olive oil before the festivities should do it.

I couldnt tell you first hand experience, not much of a drinker, but i hear drinking plenty of water helps as hang overs usually come from dehydration.

Vinifera7's avatar

I have heard that drinking a lot of water before you sleep helps.

Before you go to sleep, eat some bread and drink a bunch of water. Take two headache pills. Good luck.

Take like 3 vitamin b12’s and drink a couple of glasses of water. Also, be sure to swear off La Lachusa, she is the mother of all hangover, haah…

I drink a lot. The best thing to do is chug a glass or 2 of water and take some ibuprofen before you crash. I promise it makes all the difference the next morning.

Drink a ton of water, hangovers are dehydration.

richardhenry's avatar

Oh, godness! I hope this doesn’t get flageed.

It’s easy, you just don’t stop drinking.

wundayatta's avatar

Wow, starting the night before New Year’s Eve?!? Now that’s impressive!

I have no one to party with but my family, and the kids go to bed by 10 or 11, and my wife hates partying. Some fun with adults (if not adult fun) would be nice ;-(

Hilarious. Good luck krose!

Asmonet is correct. Hangover is dehydration which creates electrolyte imbalance which shows up as a hangover. The best way to take care of this is to consume two packets of Emergen-C (sold at Drugstores,Walmart,Sams,Target…) before you start drinking and then remember to consume water during the ‘drinking’ hours. (remember not to count the alchoholic drinks as water.) Drink WATER between drinks. Next morning 2 more packets of Emergen-C and more fluids. Works like a charm.

Stay drunk.

shadling21's avatar

First of all, ignore wilhel.
Second of all, drink plenty of water.

ogodness. That is my new favourite word.

Vinifera7's avatar

The question was “How do you prevent a hangover?”, not “How do you postpone a hangover?”

jholler's avatar

Well, theoretically if you stay drunk, you prevent the hangover by postponing it indefinitely, no?

asmonet's avatar

Nah, eventually you just fall over dehydrated and dying.

richardhenry's avatar

@asmonet: No hangover if you’re dead. WIN!

Vinifera7's avatar

Yes, clearly suicide from dehydration and liver failure is the best solution to this problem.

krose1223's avatar

dude I officially swear by chugging two bottles of water and 800mg of ibprophen. Try it, it really works ;-)

inoffensive's avatar

if your stomach can take it, a glass of milk and good night sleep.

asmonet's avatar

@richardhenry: You got me there. :)

BoyWonder's avatar

How about prolonging the “getting drunk” process by swallowing a tablespoon of olive oil before you drink…

richardhenry's avatar

@asmonet I really did, didn’t I.

asmonet's avatar

Little bit.

lovelylady's avatar

i’m 22 but i simply don’t drink…ALCOHOL IS FOR THE WEAK ! (epic voice)

i just don’t like the taste and the idea of getting drunk

richardhenry's avatar

Well you don’t necessarily have to get wasted. There’s some extra tasty alcoholic drinks out there.

asmonet's avatar

For real, White Russians anyone?

asmonet's avatar

OMFG Yes. :D

El_Cadejo's avatar

i went to a big lebowski party before…. we drank many a white russians :P

asmonet's avatar

Been there. ;)

Fucktard's avatar

Drink lots of water.

ItsAHabit's avatar

Avoid dark alcoholic beverages because they tend to contain congeners, which exacerbate a hangover. Other than that, try to keep your BAC down by drinking slowly, eating plenty of food, and drink plenty of water.
