Any tried and tested hangover cures? I'm struggling to make it through the day and i've only arrived at work

The best one is time and sleep! Ah - not a lot of help to you at the moment.

Blood sugar will be low and you will be dehydrated so food and water.

Cheers

Not going out and getting pissed on a work night is the best cure!!! plenty of headache pills, fresh orange juice, and a bacon butty does the trick for me.. good luck!!!

I know what's good for a hangover - seven pints of lager. That'll do it every time:E

Tin of Coke'll help - all that sugar'll give u a fillip honest like.

Had a lucozade, feeling a lot better, although that second sausage roll may have been a bad idea. Had such good intentions last night, don't know how I manage to get drunker when i'm out for dinner, isn't food supposed to soak up alcohol!!??

Irn Bru and a packet of Jaffa cakes. Followed by a cup of tea, works everytime:ok:

Sounds like it's only a one star hangover to me, if that. Do a Pprunesearch for the rest of the list. That will keep you occupied for a while, and when you find the list, you'll realise how good you feel. ;)

One ice cold double vodka shot neat, knocked back.

Works well.

Water
Salt
Vitamin C
Glucose

Starchy, fatty food also seems to help. Full English breakfast with toast and large juice usually does the trick. Alternatively an effervescent vitamin C tablet the end of the night (in water - the first time someone told me this, he didn't tell me it was effervescent and I was too pished to notice until I started foaming orage bubbles at the mouth!).

Lots of water, lots of aspirin.

Non-greasy foods to weigh down the stomach and prevent vomitting and stomach bleeding due to excessive aspirin.

Can of coke if stomach permits, sugar and caffeine will help get your energy back.

CHERRY coke is the only way to go!

Lucozade is good if you can stomach it.
The best cure for a hangover is to rehydrate and then go running. Works well for me but this doesnt work if youre really bad because youll just throw up:yuk:

So far today I've had a bottle of lucozade and a litre and a half of water. Still thirsty, but hey, I'll have the clearest complexion ever!

Best cure - stay home. Then when you've done with the technicolour yawn bit wimper loud enough for someone to bring you a cup of tea.

You won't feel any better but at least you get to suffer in comfort.

Ibuprofen is the way to go.

Before you leave the house to go out on the Pi$$, put a pint of water and a saucer by the front/back door. In the saucer should be two Brufen. On your return, you will spot the water and Brufen, consuming both...all the water!

In the morning you will feel much better and then the Lucozade/full fat pepsi/fry up will have a much greater effect.

Prevention not cure!

OK, Chick is new, she's slightly hungover, and she's Irish, so I'll assume she can't search. I'll save her the trouble.

HANGOVER RATING

*1 star hangover

No pain. No real feeling of illness. Your sleep last night was a mere disco nap which is giving you a whole lot of misplaced energy. Be glad that you are able to function relatively well. However, you are still parched. You can drink 10 cokes and still feel this way. Even vegetarians are craving a steak sandwich and a side order of gravy fries from any motorway cafe.



** 2 star hangover

No pain. Something is definitely amiss. You may look okay but you have the attention span and mental capacity of a staple gun. The coffee you chug to try and remain focused is only exacerbating your rumbling gut, which is craving a MacDonalds breakfast. Last night has wreaked havoc on your bowels and even though you have a nice demeanor about the office, you are costing your employer valuable money because all you really can handle is surfing internet porn and writing junk e-mails.


*** 3 star hangover

Slight headache. Stomach feels crappy. You are definitely a space shot and so not productive. Anytime a girl walks by you gag because her perfume reminds you of the random gin shots you did with your alcoholic friends after the bouncer chucked you out at 1:45 a.m. Life would be better right now if you were in your bed with a dozen donuts and a steak sub watching a decent film. You've had 4 cups of coffee, a gallon of water, 3 cartons of juice and a litre of diet coke - yet you haven't peed once.


**** 4 star hangover

Life sucks. Your head is throbbing and you can't speak too quickly or else you might puke. Your boss has already lambasted you for being late and has
given you a lecture for reeking of booze. You wore nice clothes, but that can't hide the fact that you missed an oh-so crucial spot shaving, (girls, it looks like you put your make-up on while riding the bumper cars) your teeth have sweaters, your eyes look like one big vein and your hair style makes you look like a retard. You would shoot your mother for one or all of the following -
1. the clock to strike 6pm
2. the entire appetiser list from TGIFridays or
3. a time machine so you could go back and NOT have gone out the night before.


***** 5 star hangover, aka Dante's 4th Circle of Hell

You have a second heartbeat in your head which is actually annoying the employee who sits at the next desk. Vodka vapour is seeping out of every pore and making you dizzy. You still have toothpaste crust in the corners of your mouth from brushing your teeth. Your body has lost the ability to generate saliva, so your tongue is suffocating you. You'd cry but that would take the last of the moisture left in your body. Death seems pretty good right now. Your boss doesn't even get mad at you and your co-workers think that your dog just died because you look so pathetic. You should have called in sick because, let's face it, all you can manage to do is bitch about your state - which is a mystery to you because you definitely don't remember who you were with, where you were, what you drank and why there is a stranger still sleeping in your bed, unaccompanied, at your house. The only thing you can do is chew painkillers and pass out. It's when you wake up a few hours later with a lesser star hangover that you eat a large pizza, an order of Tandoori Chicken, a ham and cheese omelette and a batch of Cadbury's chocolate.


So, Chick, the simple truth is you didn't drink enough last night. :} Get down the pub at lunch time and stop your bellyaching!

ROFL!!!
Thanks for that! Was originally a three star hangover methinks, but the worst is over.
