      Thank you for this amazing advice. Perhaps you should add to the list a small tomato with salt before you go to sleep. It helps me a lot in decreasing the hangover that follows in the morning.

      I used to party when I was in my teens and up to early 20's, but over the years I've drank a lot less, to the point I'll only have a beer with a BBQ or something, or a glass of wine with a fine meal, that's about it. I suppose that's the best method for curing a hangover, don't drink much! :)

      Margaritas are one of my downfalls, perhaps I should just dip lime slices in it and suck on them, and perhaps avoid a hangover. Never heard of the apple trick, but hey, An apple a day keeps the doctor away...Great hub, I must bookmark it for my next splitting headache.~~~MFB III

      Now these tips are very helpful to many drinkers, especially those like me (that love my glass of wine).

      I tend to drink water intermittently as i drink. i have found that this prevents me from having hangovers, or even from feeling tipsy.

      However, i have just learnt from this great article that diarrhoea is a form of hangover too. I always thought it was the quality of the wine. Now i know.

      Thanks for the enlightenment Pretty.

      Cheers

      This is a great guide for avoiding the worst part of consuming drink.

      I remember consuming two large bottles of romulan ale in one sitting...the next day I was seeing stars without consulting a port view.

      In space no one can hear you moan from a hang over. ;)

      Very funny "toilet" picture!

      I've found a great way to prevent hangovers is to drink a huge glass of water after every drink. It's slows down one's drinking a lot, and keeps one hydrated as well. Or one can just not drink in the first place. :)

      As you said the greatest advice is not to mix different kinds of alcohol, the second is to stop before it's too late, and water is really the best thing to drink the day after. Many times the headache is due to little water in the body.

      Nice pics, especially yours. :)

      I try not to get a hangover in the first place, relying on a full glass of Club Soda or Tomato Juice before heading out for an everning with the boys. I try to limit myself to no more than 2 drinks, mainly Tanquerary Gin Up with an Olive. But, those few times when things get out of hand, first thing next morning, I down 1 more ounce of gin neat before breakfast and when breakfast is over, I'm fit as ever - kicking myself for the stupedity of the night before.

      Ate' Maita I hope you do not give this advice from personal experience. Fortunately I never have enjoyed drinking of alchoholic spirits of any sort, that is not to say I have not at least sampled the various flavors of the various beverages, but I never liked it. I would rather get "Drunk in the Holy Spirit of My God" I guarantee there is no hangover in this.

      Love Ate' Maita,

      Brother Dave.

      What a great photo at the top - that should be enough to inspire anyone to drink in moderation (but - sigh! it won't).

      You are sooooo right about Asia and hangover remedies. During the time I lived in S. Korea, there were early morning restaurants designed specifically for people with hangovers - and they filled up quickly and served special foods depending on what you drank - it was a true art! Then all the home remedies.

      What I liked most was - my first time there I stayed with a great family and the dad said it was his job to teach his children to drink responsibly - if they did not, society would blame him. He asked me if dads had that responsibility in the US. What could I say but 'no.' - But as parents we should.

      Great hub!

      I particularly appreciate your encouraging moderation Maita. There are too many deaths and domestic violence occurring in our society due to drunkenness.

      I strongly agree with dohn121. The best way to avoid a hangover is simple DON'T DRINK.

      You did an excellent research job and presented it well. Love and peace!

      Forever His,

      I could've really used this hub when I was in college, Maita! I loved the tips about how to cure hangovers and I think the one way to do so is to NOT DRINK! Abstinence works best :D Someone in college once asked:

      "How do I avoid getting my girlfriend pregnant?" My answer? Don't have sex! Pretty easy right?

      Whenever a conversation at work or at a party about how to cure a hangover, someone always thinks they have the best cure, bar none. Like you said in this hub, one of the best ways is to have food in your system before you drink as the food will absorb much of the alcohol. I found that bread and carbohydrates work best (just like you said). Drinking lots of water after coming home from drinking is also a very good idea (just make sure you don't we the bed, lol).

      A great and fun and useful hub, Maita! Awesome!

      I love the photos by the way :D
