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.

Found the Jersey person.

Finally, a sensible one.

Giphy

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

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.

If you don't have any experience with construction, it can be pretty interesting to watch those reality HGTV shows (I know I'm addicted at this point). Some of the best episodes can be the one's where they open up the walls to find the builder didn't do anything right, causing a huge blow to the budget. The drama!

As someone who doesn't know much about building, and is dreaming of homeownership, Redditor Vast_Recognition_682 asked a question I wish I had thought of first.

Unless you've been a member of the armed forces, you may only know drill sergeants as uncompassionate leaders who yell at privates all the time.

Sometimes, it becomes extremely clear that it's time to leave.

Years ago I had a classmate who was a total daredevil... so much so that he would often injure himself. He once drove a bike in the direction of oncoming traffic, just for the hell of it. He got out of that episode unscathed––luckily. By contrast, I prefer keeping all my limbs, and still have them all. I wonder where he is now. Hopefully not too banged up. I did do some stuff unwittingly––like the time I stuck a fork into an electrical socket. I thankfully wasn't shocked too much. I was young and naive.

People told us all about the dangerous things they did when they were younger after Redditor Not-an-Ocelot asked the online community,

"What's the most dangerous thing you did as a kid without realizing?"
