    I feel like a pig shat in my head. No amount of eggs and bread is going to save me. I might just have to keep drinking until my liver explodes. It would be a mercy killing.

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    Note to self: drinking numerous VKs (I am fuzzy on how many. They are deceptively alcoholic....), drinking them like juice and gulping them down, then having numerous shots may seem like a good idea at 2 in the morning, but it does NOT feel good when you wake up later....

    I never ever get hangovers, they are bloody awful! =(

    Though I must say, whoever it was earlier in the thread that suggested listening to Disintegration as a hangover "Cure" was actually right, never has their name been more apt! Whilst not amazing, I do feel considerably better now, and can actually move without feeling like I need to hold my head to stop the contents spilling out....

    I made the mistake of picking random cocktails then having shots of tequila between them at the weekend, wasn't as hungover as I should have been thankfully!

    Did discover that a Harlem Mugger cocktail is pretty lethal, has quite a kick on it. Again...not helped with the tequila chaser.

    Depends on the quality of the place you're drinking in. Plenty of places have dirty pipes that will give you a rotten hangover after only a couple of pints because they're serving you fucking poison.

    There are several places in which I will only drink bottled beer. Preferably Becks (more expensive, less hangover).

    Alternatively, to be safe, just drink in Germany.

    This will sound weird, but I find that if I want to soothe my hangover headache I use my imagination and make up a story/scenario in my head. It doesn't work if I am recalling something from memory but is good if I make up a hypothetical thing. It can be anything mundane or fantasy.

    As i say, weird but has certainly worked for me in the past and today. Ally that with a revita-shite and I am sorted

    For some reason I don't sleep well at all when drunk and I fucking hate it. I would love to be out likea light for a full 10 hours and wake up completely recovered. Preferably attached to a drip.

    Sleeplessness or waking up early after no/little sleep after drinking is usually caused by a drop in blood sugar :o

    When blood sugar hits a very low level it triggers the bodies eat reflex which intern triggers the wake reflex.

    Solution eat before bed.

    Hangover prevention;

    Milk Thistle Tablets (or even better a tincture i.e. liquid form) take before drinking and day after. There are different strengths and the heavy drinker should go for a the Milk Thistle Complex.

    If still suffering in the morning try this drink.

    Takes prep but worth the wait

    Pulp fresh ginger (inch cubed) with pestle n mortar, add 1/2 pint boiling water, poor into a jug add a big spoon of honey cover and leave to go tepid (20-30 mins)

    Strain (I use a tea strainer) into a mug n squeeze the juice out of the ginger pulp.

    Juice a lemon & lime and add to mix.

    Top up with boiling water or ice.

    Sounds like too much hard work if I'm hungover :/

    Yeah, if I was hungover and tried that i'd end up pouring boiling water on myself. The best way is to drink some water while drinking (not always possible) or wake up early drink shedloads of water, take some pain killers and a snack - then spend 3/4 the day in bed.

    Although i've cut back a lot now, i'm only getting drunk about once every 3 months because I just can't deal with hangovers

    Hangovers are precisely why I never get drunk anymore. That's not to say I don't drink, I'm just always really careful. I can't deal with losing a whole day feeling like shit.

    Probably been said but 2 nurofen and a glass of water before sleep pretty much guarantees a hangover free
    morning.

    I had a rather serious hang over after Saturday night. Felt sick as a dog once I finally got out of bed and ended up flat out on the girlfriends bedroom floor withing seconds.

    I did find that an ice pop, can of cherry 7up, chicken soup, liver and onions, lemonade, tea, and a cup of gravy help though.

    I used to be able to drink a fair few pints before needing to relieve myself, but a few years of borderline alcoholism means that I generally piss at least once every pint now :(

    In at 4:30.

    Wife understandably not talking to me.

    This haiku is wrong.

    I lurk. If I've spoken to you, I'm either impassioned, or drunk.

    If I went out on the piss and the Mrs didn't speak to me I would simply go out on the piss again all day.

    I played hockey today with a hangover, I was almost dying by half-time and I don't think the captain was too impressed with me almost vomming during the half-time team talk. Made it through just about though, now back to bed...

    Haven't read the contents of the thread but has anyone mentioned Berocca yet? It's fucking amazing. It stopped my God-awful hangovers full stop. Just take before you go to bed, or if you forget first thing in the morning.
