1. Don’t drink cheap alcoholic beverages. More expensive liquors contain less filler congeners, which may contribute to causing hangovers.
  2. Drink lot of water during and after drinking alcohol.
  3. Aspirin or ibuprofen are both fine choices if you have a headache the morning after boozing, but avoid Acetaminophen, due to liver-damaging reactions with alcohol metabolites.
  4. When dehydrated, we lose not only water, but electrolytes, too. Refuel them with bananas or by eating any other potassium rich-food.
  5. Avoid “diet” mixers, because these kind of drinks contain no sugar or calories, without which the alcohol shoots directly into the bloodstream.
  6. Drink boiled water with honey and lemon.
  7. Eat foods with high carbohydrate content. These foods alleviate nausea and help your body soak up the alcohol in your system.
  8. Alcohol will lead to a drop in blood sugar, so boost it back up with a glass of OJ in the morning.
  9. One drink – a 12-ounce beer, 5 ounces of wine, or 1.5 ounces of hard liquor – is metabolized by your body in about an hour. Drink one unit per hour and you will avoid hangover the next morning.
  10. Get outdoors to breath some fresh air. Oxygen increases the rate that alcohol toxins are broken down.
  11. Choose light alcohol over dark alcohol.
  12. Drink ginger tea.
  13. Take a multivitamin before and after drinking, although yet no studies have found that any particular vitamins do anything for a hangover.
  14. Distract yourself. Giving yourself time to rest and recover is the best way to make hangover go away.
  15. Go back to sleep. Alcohol disrupts the sleep cycle, so part of the reason you are feeling so tired is because your body is sleep-deprived.
