    I've never had one. Always wanted to know how it feels like.
    If I live every moment believing, then the chaos in my heart will be a beautiful thing.-
    I am in love, but not in love with someone or something, I am in love with my life. And for the first time, in a long time, everything is inspiring.-

    I don't believe it when my BFF tells me that she blacks out from drinking. I'm like how do you not remember what you did?!

    Some people I know, mainly friends from college, thought of a hangover as a badge of honor. I never shared that perspective. Some still hold it.

    One thing to consider is Mango. Mango has an enzyme acetylaldehyde dehydrogenase. Acetylaldehyde is what really wacks us out from drinking and mango supplies us with additional enzyme to flush it out. Consider L-glutamine as well. During drunken sleep the body halts products of glutamine, the most abundant AA in the body. Although be cautious glutamine at that point can act like a stimulant hence why some people get shakey from rebound.
    By believing passionately in something that still does not exist, we create it. The nonexistent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired.

    i know the polyphenols in green tea have been shown to break it down. The best I can tell you is search the web.
    If you ever wondered why asians are "allergic" to alcohol or get the "asian flush" it's because they are genetically deficient in this enzyme.

    Oh, this is a nice simply stated summary of the whole to-do http://science.howstuffworks.com/lif.../hangover4.htm

    Best way to cure a hangover is a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with a Gatorade. That really gets your body in the right place fast. I love this combo does really well for me.

    Honestly, some hangovers you just can't cure and have to weather out. What helps me:

    Staying up later as people suggested to eat and drink
    Tons of greasy or carb filled food before bed (waffles house omelets and waffles, your local late night eateries, pizza)
    Pedialyte with no flavor so no extra sugar. Pound this before bed and the next day
    Lots of water before bed
    2 Emergen c's before bed
    Wake up and eat the biggest breakfast possible before hangover kicks in
    Get moving around and active. I used to do horrific squat workouts on Sundays after Saturday benders with my buddy. We would go partially still drunk before we got too hungover and kill a workout. Always helped and we always were strong as **** for some reason
    Activated Charcoal

    This is coming from somebody with extremely wild party habits and plenty of hangover experience

    A small glass of orange juice and a teaspoon of salt. Replenishes the electrolytes from peeing frequently and only (maybe) drinking water to rehydrate.

    Might start to drink milk or heavy cream before I start drinking to coat my stomach.

    The next day stomach pains seem to bug me the most

    I truly appreciate the answers like "don't drink" and stuff like that... Sometimes it just happens, sometimes you may not even have been that drunk the night before and it happens. I have missed sleep after drinking lightly and then feel like hell the next day.

    It's like if someone were to come over and ask "Ok, so I hurt my shoulder lifting the other day, what would help me with that?" "You know what would prevent you from getting hurt in the first place? Not lifting. Don't lift."

    Aside from people who are competing and whatnot, I don't understand why the frown on people who drink, seriously. Fine, you may enjoy life with being fully healthy and not drinking, but some people think that the extremes that some bodybuilders go through is ridiculous, just as some bb think that drinking is ridiculous. To each its own, why judge someone else's lifestyle?

    To answer the question;

    -BCAAs
    -Water, lots of water before bed
    -Multi Vitamin (as usually hangover is a lack of some of the vital vitamins)
    -Fat full before bed meal.

    I usually drink coconut milk, protein and bcaa before bed, take a multi and sleep like a baby to wake up pretty darn well even after some heavy drinking. I usually try to add some coconut oil or olive oil in that shake as well.

    Nothing in particular before, but I always make sure to have something after; usually coconut milk with whey protein and bcaas.

    A gallon of water over the couple hours before drinking, drinking vodka/water/lemon. Or scotch and soda. But never mix with any sugary mixer like coke or lemonade or cranberry or tonic.

    And a benadryl to prevent the wake up caused by adrenaline spike when the alcohol is finished being processed. But I can't remember the last time I drank so much I was hungover. Or perhaps my methods work...

    My hangover cure is alkastzer, gatorade, and some form of caffeine... It has definitely helped me get through some ****ty hangovers.

    Acetyl-l-carnitine. Surprised this wasn't mentioned earlier. Should take the headache aspect down a notch
