Do You Have A Favourite Remedy For The Dreaded Hangover?

Most of us have had one at some stage of our life!

The moment you wake up after what you thought was the best night ever, you realize that it should have ended earlier. That last drink(s) was that proverbial bit of straw that broke the camels back.

Lying in a spinning bed, you mentally castigate your better half or even yourself, for not ending the evening earlier and kind of ripping that last drink from you. Of course you are conveniently forgetting that stubborn " I knnoow whhat I am sdoing and when I'vvve sshad enough..." comment.

Regardless of who is to blame, it results in one of those situations, that leaves you in a very sorry state indeed. The birds greeting the day, your children jumping on the bed, your wife telling you
" I told you so " all cause you to wince in pain and organize your trusted hangover cure...

Do you use one or maybe all of the following?

  • A glass of water next to your bed with two Paracetamols.
  • Having an ice cold shower.
  • Cooking and devouring a greasy fry up.
  • Having copious cups of black coffee.
  • Staying in bed all day feeling sorry for yourself.

What all of these have in common, is that each one is followed by a promise to yourself to never drink again....which often doesn't survive until the next weekend.

What is your trusted hangover remedy?
