Seriously, it's true. The vast majority of the after-effects of alcohol are caused by dehydration. Make sure you're well-hydrated before you go out drinking and have a pint of water in between every 3 pints or so, then have a couple more pints of water when you get home. Then the only after-effect you'll have to deal with is the fact that you sleep lighter, which can be easily rectified by sleeping for longer. Job done.
