I know we’ve all been there, the aching head, the dry mouth, the overwhelming urge to pee being stifled by the knowledge that getting of bed is going to make you nauseous enough to evacuate the meager acidic contents of your stomach and colon. It’s a hang over.
There are a few people who proudly exclaim that they have never even tried alcohol. To them I say, go back to your own planet, us curious monkey are trying to have some fun down here. They might not need to know about these thing, but you do.
So let me just start by telling you quickly and easily the information that you came to this article for.
- DRINK LOTS OF WATER, BEFORE AND AFTER CONSUMING ALCOHOL.
- EAT GOOD FOOD WHILE DRINKING.
- DON’T DRINK SO MUCH.
- PLAN FOR THE NEXT MORNING.
Those are some fairly straight forward tips. Easy to follow and some are even enjoyable.
The first point is to drink lots of water. This is because consuming alcoholic beverages dries you out. More specifically, it dries out your brain. This is what creates the headache that destroys your enjoyment of being alive.
Food. I don’t really need to say much more than that. If you are drinking, food is going to keep your body from being seriously affected by wine and other alcohols. This has been proven scientifically, so the more you eat, the greater the effect will be. Eat good heavy foods that are high in carbohydrates, like pasta, for a better result.
Too much of a good thing is never good. Moderation is key to preventing a killer hangover, It has nothing to do with curing hangovers, but is a way to prevent them, which in my mind, is just as good. Not that you need this info during a hangover or anything, it might help for next time.
Planning for the next morning is essential for anyone who is not completely inebriated. If you know that you are drinking and buy the foods that cure hangovers, like greasy, buttery, salty, delicious breakfasts, you are going to at least make your morning a little bit more pleasant. Also keep some headache pills handy, maybe something for your stomach like pepto or tums.
So there, it isn’t really all that much more than common sense. Now get out there and live in the moment.
