Most of us have woken up the morning after a wild night painting the town red with a banging headache. You know it’s going to be a bad day when you can’t even lift your head off the pillow without your brain screaming at you: PAIN, PAIN, PAIN, CALL THE HOSPITAL!!
Yes, you’ve got a hangover from hell and probably only a vague recollection of what happened the night before. So, what are the best hangover cures?
A client suggested these hangover cures to me:
- Drink 2 glasses of milk before you go to bed.
- Eat a banana
- Drink a sprite
Curiously, the hangover cure that works for me is to take some super strength aspirin, wash it down with a litre of diet coke and then watch children’s TV. The reason I know this works is because I spent 3 years doing it at university and I never missed a lecture as a result of a hangover. Ok, sometimes I didn’t get to university because I had to pass at least 5 pubs to get there, all of them seducing me inside with the promise of a pint of lager, a packet of crisps, a game of pool and some intellectual mumbo-jumbo about philosophy with my University mates.
However, my brother and elder sister have a completely different opinion, they swear by the hair of the dog method. This means, they wake up, and have a bloody mary. A bloody mary is a drink made with vodka, tomato juice some worcestershire sauce and a stick of celery to stir it with. – disgusting!
Other people suggest a fruit and vegetable milkshake, but seriously, who is going to turn on the blender when you already think your head is about to explode?! So, what’s your hangover cure?
