After a wild night out, you unfortunately have to deal with the repercussions. Those being the dreaded hangover. Everyone has their own technique to deal with hangovers (mine is orange juice and lots of bread), and some of them can be pretty out there. Here are some of the best ones.

u/just_a_firenope asked: What is your go to hangover cure?


Always effective.

Water. Before bed and first thing waking up.

If I plan on drinking I'll put a couple bottles on my nightstand.

A ludicrous amount of water during drinking for me. Like I force myself to drink a ton of water, like 2-3 cups per drink or more. I pee a ton but even if I'm super drunk I'll wake up just fine in the morning with little to no hangover. Water and staying hydrated is the key.

Solid tip.

Pedialyte is my ultimate savior. Much better than Gatorade!

Put it in the freezer so it's like a slushy. Tastes much better.

Nothing cures a hangover better than more alcohol.

A big breakfast and a Bloody Mary.

Bloody Mary, full of vodka, blessed are you among cocktails.

Yum!

Big steaming bowl of Pho. Warm broth settles my stomach and it goes down so well.

Breakfast of Champions.

Weed, Gatorade, and a breakfast/lunch that's horribly unhealthy (Mickey D's, 5 Guys, Dominos, etc).

Just had a big basket of Long John Silver's for lunch. Can confirm, feeling much more functional now.

Love a good egg.

Eggs and water. Too much alcohol depletes the amino acid (glutathione) involved in the preferred metabolic pathway, causing it to use another pathway and build up acetaldehyde, which is responsible for the hangover. Eggs are high in cysteine, which is a precursor to glutathione, and helps get your body get back on track.

Sounds about right.

A nice greasy slice of pizza before bed and a baconeggandcheesesaltpepperketchuponaneverythingbagel in the morning with a large ice coffee.

Finally, a sensible one.

Giphy

Eat some pickles and drink some of the pickle water, it has more electrolytes then Gatorade.

Uberwolf18

Alternatively, only do picklebacks the whole night.

Also good advice.

  1. Sleep
  2. Get out of bed
  3. Try not to die
  4. Get something to eat and a gallon of water
  5. Don't die and sleep more

Or my favorite one: just don't drink.

I accidentally discovered that black tea works for me. Straight black tea, no sugar, nothing. But the catch is to drink it before going to sleep, on the night I was consuming alcohol.

Next morning I wake up tired, but very little hung-over.

Probably coffee would work equally well, not sure.

People Explain Which Things They Still Prefer To Do The Old-Fashioned Way

Has science gotten to a point where we can make mashed potatoes by just adding water to flakes, producing a smooth and consistent texture?

Yes.

Am I still going to take the extra time to wash, peel, chop, boil, and mash my own potatoes, getting zero textural consistency but maximum deliciousness?

Also yes.

Because sometimes the "old way" is just better, and I'm very serious about my potatoes.
