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

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!!??

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.

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.

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

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.
