I am formulating my own cure!

Hangover cure

Night before:

1.Drink water in between drinks (when convenient)

2. don't drink the cheap ****.

3. Before bed drink tomato juice, and take B12 and alka seltzer.

Morning:

1.Bloody mary (one only) with a greasy breakfast.

2.brisk walk/excersize

3. B12, water.

Is it really true that good booze prevents hangovers????????????


yes, because the impurities have a lot to do with hangovers. For instance with tequila drink only 100% agave, and with vodka drink stuff that is distilled and/or filtered multiple times like Skyy. Also with good hooch people tend to drink more simply without all the mixers, avoiding the sugar helps. I am not sure if drinking old barrel aged stuff is better than the younger, but I suspect that that the impurities either leach onto the wood or else evaporate off.

I don't know enough about this stuff to tell you exactly why cheap stuff gives more hangovers, but is has something to do with alcohols that are not wanted tagging along, tiny amounts but significant none the less.

You could try that chaser stuff sold in liquor stores - but I believe it also tells you to drink lots of water along with it. I haven't tried it myself - I don't drink much as I'd rather be able to function the next day. And it would be miserable with two kids bothering me to get breakfast in the morning.

Either that or throwing up should get it outta your system.

Beer can get you plenty of B12 -- if it's bottle conditioned and you drink the yeast at the bottom.


Hah! Where do you get yeast in American beer? Nada, zippo, niente!

@CalamityJane,
Sierra Nevada was bottle conditioned before their distribution widened. Hale's in Seattle still makes bottle conditioned ales, as do a number of other small, regional breweries.

Most beers I've had in Europe were not bottle conditioned, either.

@Farmgirl25,
A couple of reasons:
Alcohol decreases teens' ability to pay attention.

The younger a person is when they begin drinking, the more likely they are to develop a problem with alcohol.

Each year, almost 2000 people under the age of 21 years died in car crashes in which underage drinking is involved. Alcohol is involved in nearly half of all violent deaths involving teens.

More than three times the number of eighth-grade girls who drink heavily said they have attempted suicide compared to girls in that grade who do not drink.

Teens that drink are more likely to engage in sexual activity, have unprotected sex, or have sex with a stranger.

Excess alcohol use can cause or mask other emotional problems, like anxiety or depression.

Drinking in excess can lead to the use of other drugs, like marijuana, cocaine, or heroin.

@Farmgirl25,
I'm glad about what you stated. It does make me feel better.

I also understand teenagers want to try new things - I remember what it was like when I was a teen too. Just be careful - I am also a mom now too so I worry.

@Farmgirl25,
Your brain and body are still developing it is a very important time in that development that will define who your are for the rest of your life. Alcohol will retard that development.

@candide,
Alcoholism. Well, 'binge drinking' anyway.
I don't get hangovers anymore no matter how much I drink.
Tips though, water, berocca tablets, rehydration tablets.
