One bottle of V-8 Splash per six-pack drank. I will drink this before I go to bed or if for some reason beyond my control I don't get to drink anymore liquids before I fall asleep I'll drink it as soon as I wake up in the morning. I've also used Gatoraid but I prefer the taste of the fruit drink better. Anyone else have a cure?
Many years ago I was reading the articles in one of those magazines that people usualy only look at the pictures. It had a sure fire cowboy cure. The morning after a roudy evening, the cowboys used to break the ice from the water tank and dunk their head in untill they couldn't stand it any longer. After that in the mornings I would stand in the shower and turn on the COLD water untill I couldn't breath (wife was never in the mood the next morning anyway). It worked for me and I also learned not to drink that much anymore either.

Actually, lots of vitamin B12 will help. That's what's in V8 juice (the tomato juice is what does the trick). I know of a couple of drunks that make a special trip to the doctors office every once in a while to get a B12 shot. It must help. I've never seen them with a hangover.

A BIG part of a hangover is dehydration (alchol absorbes water) Drinking a couple glasses of water before going to sleep is suppose to help. Also, waiting till you've sobered up a little before passing out helps.

When you get into bed, stick one leg out from under the covers and put your foot on the floor. Stops the bed from spinning. All kidding aside... I try to take a couple of aspirin (NEVER take Tylenol when there is a lot of alcohol in your system), and drink a glass of water or two. I also try to eat something.
Like M onkeyMan asid, take some Vitamin B pills before you hit the sheets. A hangover is caused by the depletion of Vitamin B in your brain. Me and four of my buddies managed to kill a full keg of beer in a day and a half over spring break and didn't suffer from any hangover at all. Proof that it works.
although i rarely drink, when i do... i do it up right. i didnt know about the b12 thing & will try it but i can attest to the water thing... as much as i can b4 i pass out & im fine. although even when i didnt do this ive rarely had hangovers.
