Have any of you gone out with good intentions to have some fun with friends and it turned into a "How did I get home" kind of night? You know the kind; went out for a couple beers... which turned into a couple shots... which turned into a 3 a.m. Taco Bell run. Woke up in a strange bed? Dried up vomit on your shoe? Missing debit card? Fought a friend? Broken or beer logged phone?
Well, I think most of us have been there at least once! Sh*t happens ladies and gents, and there's not much you can do to change last night’s shenanigans. It is what it is, but what about your splitting f*#$ing headache, nausea, and constant beer sh*ts? We've done some research and some experimentation to try and put together our favorite Hangover Cures!!
For the purpose of this article, I have subjected myself to countless hours of drinking myself stupid so that I can test out these so called "cures!!" You're welcome, and I am sorry to say there was no cure-all hangover remedy except to not drink (which, let's be honest, isn't an option!). So, here are some of the ones that helped me personally; try them out and pick the ones that work best for you!
The Hair of The Dog
This one's among my favorites; the only drawback is you are just prolonging the inevitable. For those of you not familiar with the saying "The Hair of The Dog," it is simply more alcohol consumption as a cure for your hangover. These are most often your delicious Bloody Mary's and Mimosa's. So if this interests you, CHEERS!
Yes, bacon (and any other greasy fatty food) works miracles! There’s something special about completely unhealthy foods that soothes your hangover! A doctor would say something to the effects of a boosted metabolism and a rise in endorphins, but don’t ask me, consult with your physician! (And eat more bacon.)
This may not be a commonly known cure, but if you reach down, grab a can of man, suck it up, and get to the range to shred up some targets it feels amazing! Once that adrenaline kicks in, you forget that you’re hung over! Once again this is only a temporary fix, but when you’re coming down off your adrenaline high on your way home you can stop and pick up a baconator!
For any of you that have ever proudly served in our armed forces you know the fix all is Mortin! Sprained ankle...Mortin, broken leg...Mortin, gunshot wound…Motrin; you get the gist, so why would this be any different for a hangover? So the most boring, but sometimes best cure is a Motrin, a sports drink, and a nap!
Last, but certainly not least is sex!! So wake up and get busy, hopefully, you didn’t piss off your significant other last night! For those single folks out there get on your phones work your magic! For everyone in the doghouse or just plain old down on their luck get creative, I have faith you can adapt, overcome, and accomplish the mission!
