Hangover Cures

I think I am getting old. The first hint I got of this was the grey hair. Then came going to a different room in my house, and forgetting why I went there.  Then the final hint was the hangovers. After a night out, I used to wake up clean as a whistle, fighting fit and ready for another day. Now I will be lucky to recover by the end of the day. I may even carry it on to the next day. Two day hangovers are the last straw!

Now, obviously, I advocate responsible drinking, but sometimes nights just spiral. One minute, you are having a couple of pints with a mate you haven’t seen in ages. The next minute, you are in a club, it’s 2.30 am and you are waving your hands in the air like you just don’t care. Those are the best kind of nights out, but my God, I pay for them now. The other thing is, it’s Christmas party season. If you can avoid  over indulging at this time of year, you have real self control!

Hangover cures

Nothing seems to cure the hangover anymore. I used to be able to fight the ache in my skull and grumble in my tummy with bacon rolls, coffee, and a whole loch of water. Now, even Irn Bru does not seem to work. I have been mildly impressed by Powerade Blue and Lucozade. These work so well because they hydrate and because they contain carbs and sugar. A triple whammy.

But what is the ultimate cure? Dear Readers, please let me know your ultimate cure for hangovers. The more weird and wonderful, the better.
