With a fun fourth of July yesterday, I'm sure the only fireworks exploding aren't just in the sky. Battling a narly hangover sometimes makes you question if the jello shots, beer bongs or just polishing off many bottles of wine was worth it. A good time and awesome memories are worth it when you've got some killer hangover cures.
One of the best preventative techniques is simply chug lots of water and make sure you dig into the BBQ and snacks. Alcohol not only diminishes your inhibitions (love watching this happen!) but depletes your body of water, 1 liter for every 4 drinks...and you know you're having way more than that.
We've all heard exercise and a cold shower help sober you up and kick a hangover, it is actually true. So roll over your one night stand and insist that morning sex and a sudsy rinse are a requirement to start the day off right.
The best cure is time. It takes roughly an hour and a half to eliminate each glass of alcohol. Do I hear a Mad Men marathon?! Or you could keep the theme and watch every installment of "The Hangover" movies while drinking Bloody Mary's (the sugar helps metabolize the alcohol) or Banana-Honey Milkshakes (banana calms your tummy & provides electrolytes and honey increases your blood sugar levels). Whatever you choose to do, hope your drunk ass feels better! Cheers or enjoy your nap.
