Being a college student who loves to party i’ve learned a few things about hang overs:
Drinking lots of water before passing out is a good idea.
a better idea is to make sure you are well hydrated before even starting the night.
when passing out, you are catching up on dehydration. when hydrated before boozing you are getting a jump on it.
take a vitamin before going out too. not necessarily immediatly, but the day of for sure. same as the water. don’t just drink a bunch of it an hour before leaving. it won’t help and you’ll just pee all night. drink lots of it all day to make sure you are hydrated.
as mentioned, drinking water and snacking intermittently through out the evening is ideal. the water so you aren’t dehydrated (the largest contributor to a hang over) and the food to soak up the alcohol and release it in to your blood slightly slower.
try a multi vitamin instead of an advil after the evening. it works for me and replenishes lots of the minerals you piss away.
also, in the morning, throw some green tea in to your liquid consumption. it will help remove the toxins that are making you feel shitty.
eat greasy food after waking up, but be sure the queasy feeling is gone from your stomach. when you feel like that you’ll throw everything up and feel worse. you should even drink water slowly and patiently at that point.
once the queasiness is gone and you just feel shitty eat grease and avoid sugar, including fruits. chug the water and have that green tea. another multi vitamin wouldn’t hurt either.
hang overs are not all that hard to get over. just keep in mind that large quantities of alcohol dehydrate you and stip you of certain minerals, it is also toxic after small amounts.
so water, vitamins and anti oxidants it is.
