Going out and drinking seems like a great idea until you wake up the next morning and realize you may possibly be on the brink of death. No matter how many times we tell ourselves we won’t drink “too much,” we somehow end up knees-deep in shots and vodka sodas,to the point where all we all wish we could sleep for 45 days and forget anything ever happened. Lucky for us, everyone else goes through the same sh*t. Lucky for us, BuzzFeed users have shared their “go-to” hangover cures that may seem weird but actually work.
- McDonalds – gabbyt212
Getting older has changed my hangover game significantly. Drink a lot of water, sleep as much as possible, take ibuprofen, McDonald’s burritos are my go to any age and taking a hit from the bong.
- The Mighty Cure – anneliseg3
- Easy as 1, 2, 3 – mitchp4adc503e0
2 x Bottles of Powerade and a bacon, egg and cheese toasted sandwich!
- 3 Step Process: Kristen05
1) Taking a 5-our Energy right before drinking
2) Drinking Pedialyte before bed
3) Eating before bed
- Dairy + Seafood: caitieh2
Clam chowder and a Sprite. I know it sounds horrifying (dairy and seafood at the same time), but for some reason, it works!
- The Two G’s – carolineb4bd01d498
Grease and Gatorade.
- The Necessary Substance – hollyskittlesb
Pickle juice and weed.
- Pedialyte Combo – victorias4366af9d7
Grape Pedialyte over ice and some hard-boiled eggs with salt and pepper. It sounds gross, but it works miracles!
- Vitamin Bs + Chinese – mollyr4b53bb800
Vitamin B-12 and B-complex. Works wonders! And food: Code Red Mountain Dew and Chinese food, especially egg rolls.
- Carbs + Tomatoes – Afoxx
Tomato soup the day after drinking. The lycopene helps reduce nausea, and if you eat it with toast or crackers, the carbs will act as a sponge to soak up the alcohol. Have plenty of water and just a little “hair of the dog,” and you should be in good shape. Also, eating something and chugging water before bed will help prevent hangovers.
- Swap Tequila For Cola – elisamiguelm
Coca Cola lime salt = BADABOOM! Hangover where?!
- Not Your Average Juice Pop – emilys405016583
Frozen pickle juice pops!
- Burger For Breakfast – ashleyt27
Alka-seltzer both before bed and when you wake up. And a cheeseburger for breakfast! Lots of water and a cold shower, and you’re good to go!
- Meat + Fruit Combo – Bernsters83
Bone marrow to be eaten before or during drinking. Watermelon until you pee after you’ve been drinking. Fat metabolism and b vitamins/ electrolytes respectively. Alcohol will inhibit pyruvate dehydrogenase and I think these help the body to get past it to restore homeostasis.
- Chocolate Drank – marcir4a053965c
- Acid + Base – khparker1991
Fresh, cold cherry tomatoes. And a glass of cold milk. I think the balance of acid and base in this combo helps regulate your stomach’s pH levels.
- The Last Supper – natashah46b467964
Toasted bread with mayo and ramen noodles with the flavor pack, some cayenne pepper, red chili flakes and garlic powder. To wash it all down, I drink my weight in Pedialyte.
- At Home Doctor – Uhlecksis
Dr. Pepper has always been my hangover cure! Sounds weird, but every time I feel like I’m going to die, I drink some, and it makes me feel better!
- Pills on Pills – lomoliving
CHARCOAL PILLS. You take them a couple of hours before you go out. The charcoal absorbs the bad toxins. It’s not 100% hangover-proof, but I would say 90% of the time, I’m good the next morning.
- Not Fried But Raw – melriddell7
Raw potato with salt and pickle juice.
- Eat The Meat – rachelh489fc7a9b
Lamb broth with cilantro and onions and lime.
- The Trifecta – songsforthedeaf
A large iced latte from Dunkin’ Donuts, 2 Advil and a banana. The banana is key. After a few hours, if I still feel shitty, I’ll have a warm Pepsi and some Cheez-its.
- Vitamin C – Tke55el
Chug orange juice, but only a quart. It has to be precisely a quart.
- Waste Removal – Anonymous
Pooping. The only thing that makes me feel better after a night of drinking is pooping as soon as I wake up. Weird, but it works.
Long nights out drinking are always a great idea! You may not have your bar hop planned out, but be sure to have your after-party planned out, and I don’t mean the drinking part. If there’s anything you can do to help the aftermath of a night out drinking, be sure you have everything you need. Stay safe, and most importantly, have fun!
