    I learnt that the hard way a while back. No more spirits for me.

    Anyway, I'm jealous. Haven't had a good night out for a few weeks now. Instead I've been going to the uni bar with friends during the afternoon.

    Good timing with the thread. Somehow got talked into having green ginger wine in my beer last night (attempting to impersonate a 70 year old, probably), for the last half-dozen or so. I don't normally suffer from particularly bad hangovers, but this morning wasn't a great deal of fun.

    Yeah. The main cause of hangovers is simply dehydration, so if you take in enough fluids without alcohol before you sleep, you'll be fine. Doesn't even have to be water, though water is best, any sort of non-alcoholic drink works fine.

    The easiest way to make yourself do it is just to stay up until you aren't completely legless any more, because eventually you will get extremely thirsty and the water drinking will take care of itself. Otherwise, just force it down.

    Lots of water and toast with vegemite works wonders pre-sleep.

    I'm generally ok if I get some lard in to soak up the booze. I walk past a chinese on the way home, so normally grab something from there.

    If I do get an HO I've found the best thing for it is "Resolve"; which I think is basically paracetemol, glucose & salt. Normally straightens me out in half-an-hour. Lucozade's good too or anything with lots of sugar.

    I pride myself in my lack of hangovers. Tis great.

    Think its down to a few factors.

    * I usually drink Vodka and Coke. Although usually blindlingly strong the coke does help. Especially if your drinking it in pints (handy drinking tip people. Go to the bar, ask for 2 double V&C's, and an empty pint glass. You've now got a quadruple and saves on bar trips!)

    * Will ALWAYS eat. Either a take away (greasy burger and chips is a godsend), or cook when i get in (when its beans on toast, or on potato cake if we've got some!).

    * Cuppa tea is a must. Its natural when you've been walking home in the freezing after losing your coat on a night out AGAIN! Even though i dont normally have sugar, i'll put one in.

    * At least 1 pint of water beside me bed, which'll get downed at about 5am when i wake up with a dry mouth (Probably will force a pint of water down before i go to bed n all)

    * Bacon butties for breakfast. Its a must. Any semblence of a slight headache goes when they get in


    Of course if you cant do all of this, then just carry on drinking untill you can. A can of Stella is an amazing wake up call i've found (usually when at festivals. I'm not an alcoholic, honest)

    I drink, but I've never gotten high, nor have I had a hangover.

    Makes me wonder why I drink sometimes.

    I prefer the 'lets not get a hangover in the first place' method

    Besides, i'm one of those freaks who can swallow tablets. No matter how hard i try. Wine gums are a different matter, always end up choking on them .... Doesnt stop me eating them (well, mebbie for 10 seconds till my lips turn red again)

    Next time i'm ill i'm gonna try putting the tablet inside a wine gum.
