    Anyone know of any "cures" that relieve a hangover? My head is hurting so bad!

    I've just started consuming ginger slices and ginger tea but too early to tell if it helps.:cool:

    Peach flavoured Nestea works a treat. Give it a try.

    Yup,

    ~two advil
    ~two bottles of water
    ~ a nice shower
    ~get outside

    However, if that doesn't work, or you don't want to do that... I always found that a bit of booze in some sort of fruit juice ( tomato juice with some vodka in it) really helps cool things off in your head.

    Good luck, dude.:smile:

    BTW, you really need to rehydrate. A hangover is often the result of not drinking enough water. Down a ton.

    And to prevent hangovers, I was told that drinking a glass of water before bed, keeps the headache down.

    Sleep, water, and if you can stomach it, Gatorade. Alcohol dehydrates and the morning headache is your body's way of telling you it needs more fluid. Gatorade will replenish any electrolytes in your system and help the rehydration process.

    I don't think Gatorade is available in France. Lucozade sport is pretty similar if that is avaiable.

    I would agree with all that, jeff, except for the analgesic. Avoid them if at all possible when treating a hangover, and under no circumstances take acetominophen (Tylenol) EVER for a hangover, it interacts with the residual alcohol in your system and makes a potent liver toxin. Also, an excellent preventative is to drink water during your evening of indulgence. One glass of water for every two drinks. And one before bed!

    the best way to avoid a hangover is to stop drinking..............or drink very little if you are going to do so

    Yes I always drink Gatorade when I am hungover. It seems to help me quite a bit. If you feel very sick it helps a lot to just allow yourself to throw up or make yourself throw up so you don't keep feeling nauseous.

    Translation - Paracetamol (Tylenol) kills your liver! (even when not mixed with alcohol it has a detrimental effect if taken regularly)

    Say NO to legal drugs - have a big fuck-off spliff - if you don't feel better keep going til you pass out!!

    Being a holiday Island hangovers are common among the tourists here in Tenerife. A lot of the bars recommend a shot of Fernet Branca.

    Lots of water. The best treatment is to force yourself to drink a huge glass of water right before passing out, the night before.

    As JB said, water+advil works for me.

    As always, time is the only solution to a hang over.

    However, for next time. Consuming a good amount of food and drinking a ton of Gatorade (or whatever enhanced water you have... or just plain water) after you are already done drinking and close to bed, with make you feel much better the next day, but will not affect you that night.

    Thanks for all your suggestions they definitely helped!

    I tried: Powerade (French isotonic drink), drank lots of water, a banana and strawberry smoothie, some peach Nestea and the headache went away within an hour, still not feeling 100% but much better! :)

    Thanks for the advice, you make it sound like they only sell bloody marys in lap dancing clubs! Next time, even though I don't like them, I might have to try one in the Hustler club!:smile: :tongue:

    I watched a programme on tv about Hangovers. They said eggs are a good sauce for hangovers: two raw eggs in a glass of milk. So as you do i tried it, it worked the first time but not the second.But i think it must depend on how much you drink:trink26: :puke:
