The only way for me to avoid a hangover is to drink a pretty full glass of water per every alcoholic drink I have. I order a mojito and a water, or a glass of wine and a water, etc.
And after I'm home, every time I pee, I drink another glass of water. I'm peeing all night, but I'm never hungover. Add a good breakfast and coffee and I'm good.

If you wake up feeling bad, try an Emergen-C. I take these everyday to stay well, but they esp help if you've over indulged!

Before and during--

Food & fluids going into the binge. (No empty stomach)
Greasy/starchy food and fluids during the binge.
Followed by fluids after the binge.

Fluids = water or something with electrolytes in it.

Morning after--
"Real food" (nothing light) to hold onto your stomach fluids
Lemon-Lime Gatorade for the electrolytes

If you for some reason 'Failed'...the Lemon-Lime Gatorade (the other flavors would probably work, but my DH & his best friend taught me, when we were young, to do that flavor and it seemed to just stick with me ). You need to electrolytes.

Besides NOT drinking?

When I was younger... before going out -- eat something high in fats, cheese works well.

Also before going out I would line up 6 glasses of water (or the equivalent, as in 2 of three LARGE glasses of water), have TWO aspirins out and then another glass of water.

Drink only to the "buzz" as well...

Once safely home, drink all that water, take the aspirins and drink that last glass of water. THEN GO TO BED!

Next morning, usually a nice warm shower did the rest as does STRONG coffee. Also abstaining from any more alcohol for 24 hours. Drink too soon, nasty headache (for me) and the water does not help then.

Now? I seldom drink more than a glass of wine with a meal or sip a "shot" of brandy before bed, so I don't worry about it.

Well that would kind of negate any chances of having a hangover in the first place, wouldn't it?

Drink a lot of water and take a few ibuprofen before bed. Sleep it off. Arise at noon and have someone bring you a cheeseburger and a fountain drink. Good to go.

Well something greasy like pizza always worked for me. Water and some vitamins too.
Nothing works as well as more alcohol!! A mimosa or bloody mary.

Tried it this morning! It didn't work, and it tastes terrible!

I like to have icy cold Gatorade, a banana, and a couple of Anacin (ASA + caffeine), served with a side of regret.

Non-drinker here, but I'm curious. If you've drunk enough alcohol to have a hangover the next day, aren't you afraid you won't wake up during the night to pee? All that water drinking right before bed would make me have to get up several times to empty my bladder.


Not so clever.

I haven't had that problem. I guess because alcohol really dehydrates you, so I guess all that water drinking is just bringing you back to normal.

Back in the good old days it was a greasy breakfast or a quarter pounder meal, these days I drink water throughout the night and before bed I need to have a huge glass of water with some asprin and the next morning a berocca.

Coconut water works for me...same idea as gatorade without all the fake stuff. I learned that while living in Hawaii. Coconut water is really a miracle drink for me, but I also love the taste.

Tylenol is BAD for the liver after you have been drinking. The combination of tylenol and booze totally wrecks your liver.

A Big Mac! Yep, something about greasy food absorbing all the alcohol in your stomach just seems to work. Of course, the most important thing is stay hydrated. So drink plenty during the day.
