I am very sure that many of you have experienced hangover after a night of heavy drinking and partying. How do you cope with your hangover? Do you vomit? Does it feel worse when you stay in bed or will it get better after drinking a cup of black coffee? What is your usual remedy to cure your hangover?

I don't drink too much now. So no question of hang over. But a few years back I used to drink and experienced hangover. At that time it was a very bad experience. Almost as if the day is totally lost. How much coffee or tea you drink the fatigue and nausy remains. Too bad an experience.

I have foung that for me...Gatorade, or some other sports dirnk is a great help when it comes to hangovers. These drinks are made to rehydrate you and also have some sugar and salt to help wake you up and retain water (to rehydrate). Plus haveing a nice cold drink when hungover feels good. I will also take an over te counter pain medicine like Advil, or Alleve. I have hear that Tyenol is bad becuase it can effect your liver, just like drinking does. For food, I often like something greasy. In the morning I really like eggs, and bacon, or sausage. Breakfast sandwichs on a bagel are also good. I htink the bread settles my stomach. If it's later in the afternoon something else bready and greasy like pizza. I have to admit, as I have gotten older, my hangovers take much longer to go away :-)

I never vomit, well rarely... I find that lots and lots of junk food is the best way to get over your hang overs.

way back, we, my friends, always go out, drinking. I usually know how much bottles I can take so when I exceeded a few bottles, I immediately drink more than I glass of water even before going back home. When I arrive home, I drink a glass of water and energy drink. when all else fails, specially one time when I can't really get-up the bed in the morning, I would drink another glass of water with alka-seltzer or other anti-acid. It depends on your preference but I really hate throwing-up.

For me this works: 1. I drink at least a glass of water before going to bed after drinking 2. I drink ice cold Gatorade to rehydrate and replenish lost electrolytes... 3. Sleeppppppp....zzzzzz......

Recently i do not have heavy hangovers . Earlier when I consumed too much in the night , I used to have nasty hangovers . In order to cope up with that , I had tried many regimens ...freshly squeezed lemons with a pinch of salt added .. a strong cup of black coffee... sour grapes ... curd with a shot of lime added to it etc . I remember the words of Somerset Maugham at this instance ... 'whenever you had a drop too much in the night , there is nothing like a peg of whiskey first thing in the morning' -----try it out if you want . Good luck , Lol .

I don't drink heavily like that anymore - gone are those days but when I did in my younger days, I would either vomit, or drink lots of water before I go to bed as that helped me get over the headache part. I am glad I don't do that anymore :)

I haven't had many hangovers in my life, but it seemed like the ones I had there was nothing at all to make me feel better.

First start with a cool bath and a few tylenol then a couple of freezeis or popsicles Then i force down a greasy breakfast and strong coffee. And then head out to cut the grass or for a walk to get the blood flowing.
