We’ve all experienced that horrible, spinning, nauseous feeling on New Year’s Day. In fact, as hangovers go, some of my worst have been after a fabulous New Year’s Eve party or two. Luckily, there are hangover cures that really do work. I know; I’ve tried them! Disclaimer: just because they’ve worked for me doesn’t mean they’ll work for you. It’s not my fault; it’s biology. Thank your parents.
Vitamin Water Zero
Choose your flavor, rip open the top and chug. It’s that simple. Vitamin Water is up to its ears in vitamins and electrolytes making it a fabulous post-party cure. In fact, if you make it the last drink of the night, you may even be able to head off the worst of your hangover. There is no hard and fast rule to this cure; drink until you feel better. Vitamin Water does double duty in re-hydrating your body and replacing the vitamins and electrolytes that the alcohol sucked away.
Chances are, if you don’t have a toddler in the house you don’t have cupboards stocked with the stuff. However, I implore you: if you are planning to tie one on this holiday, run out now and buy Pedialyte. One box of the powdered variety will net you eight doses of blissful cure! To cure your hangover, mix one tube of powder in eight ounces of ice cold water. You can repeat the process every hour if you need to but one glass typically does the trick.
Okay. Admittedly, exercise is the last thing on my mind but, as a hangover cure, getting active is a sure-fire method. Note that by exercise I don’t mean a light walk to the mailbox. You’ve got to really work up a sweat. By doing so, you’ll literally sweat out the alcohol and toxins in your body, thereby reducing their nasty effects. So suck it up, get out of bed and put your running shoes on. The sooner you sweat, the sooner you’ll feel better.
Warning: if you suffer from alcoholism and frequently wake with a hangover, this is NOT the cure for you! Overusing Advil can cause damage to your liver. However, if, like me, you are happily labeled a binge drinker, using Advil is perfectly safe. Wash down your two Advil with a Vitamin Water and within 20 minutes you may forget that you were hung-over in the first place.
Perhaps you’ve seen the commercials or heard the advertisements on the radio. Chaser Plus is a sure-fire way to get rid of your hangover. Why? Because you won’t get drunk in the first place! Doesn’t sound like much fun does it? Think of it like this: if you take Chaser Plus while you drink, you can hang with the fellas without getting falling down stupid. Not to mention that DUI you’ll avoid on the way home!
I would be remiss to mention the best hangover cure of all: don’t get drunk. Count that bit of advice for my good deed of the day and let’s get back to the topic at hand. If you should over-indulge, there are several cures for your morning after blues. Don’t try them all at once. You’ll have plenty of time to move down the list next weekend. And while I can offer you plenty in the way of hangover advice, I can’t hand you a ‘get out of jail free card’; be careful out there!
