Mine is a pint of water before bed, more if you can manage it.

Then in the morning coca cola and white bread toast. It works!

Also no red wine and no rum in the first place.

Don't drink alcohol.

100% success.

Guadalupe Tue 30-Dec-08 20:16:10

Berocca (sp?)

Goober Tue 30-Dec-08 20:18:17

Stick to the light coloured stuff. The darker the drink, the worse the headache.

rubyslippers Tue 30-Dec-08 20:19:46

glass of water


another glass of water with 2 ibuprofen


pint of water when waking

and never mix your drinks or have more than one sambucca blush

FiveGoMadInDorset Tue 30-Dec-08 20:20:28

full fat coke
orange juice
bacon sandwich

expatinscotland Tue 30-Dec-08 20:22:26

go for a run or a brisk walk or to the gym and do cardio till you break out in a serious sweat.


then flat, full Coke (no diet) or Irn Bru.

eat a fry up and you'll be right as rain.

poshwellies Tue 30-Dec-08 20:25:16

Berocca on waking,then a cup of tea and scrambled eggs on toast.

And don't dwell indoors-get your hungover arse out in the fresh air.

poshwellies Tue 30-Dec-08 20:25:51

oh and never mix the grape with the grain.

ScottishMummy Tue 30-Dec-08 20:30:28

before bed water and ibuprofen morning afterdioralyte scrambled egg,cuppa tea

or irn bru and pkt monster munch

InTheseShoes Tue 30-Dec-08 20:31:35

Dioralyte (can't spell it!!) is a fab cure - if you could get one down your neck before you go to bed and then another in the morning with some painkillers job would be a good un.

Coke and carbs and a walk along a pier in a brisk wind also help!

expatinscotland Tue 30-Dec-08 20:31:37

sometimes it's better if you just make yourself sick.

then go and work up a sweat.

then shower.

then have something to eat and that flat Coke or Irn Bru.

devonsmummy Tue 30-Dec-08 20:32:00

lemonade & ready salted crisps

saltiresaysSANTA Tue 30-Dec-08 20:37:06

Irn Bru - proper Barrs stuff, not any other kind. A fry up.
Taking 2 paracetamol and a glass of water before actually getting into bed helps as well.
I don't get hangovers, or at least if I stick to vodka I don't.

cyteen Tue 30-Dec-08 20:40:32

loads of water + 2 ibuprofen before bed
long hot bath in the morning (when you feel able i.e. not too faint and shaky)
bowl of spaghetti with fresh tomato sauce/bowl of fresh tomato soup

hazeyjane Tue 30-Dec-08 20:42:18

Lots of Diet coke, marmite on toast, chocolate (topped up throughout the day)
