Probably not, unless they go tea-total (tee-total?) after a hangover :P

Taking half a litre of water before retiring to bed is quite effective; it assists the process of eliminating the toxins, and confers the added benefit of requiring one to wake early, with a full bladder, early enough to get to work on time without a hangover.

I used to have beans on toast before I went out and then drink masses of water before I went to bed, and every time I woke up in the night. Means you have to get up to wee quite a lot but worth it to help minimise the hangover.

I don't drink. :} But A hangover can be reduced by drinking at least half as much water, such as in a soft drink, as the amount of alcoholic drinks as a hangover is mainly dehydration of the brain.

I've said this before on here, but I shall say it again:

Teetotaler. It has nothing whatever to do with tea. It is thought to be derived from Total Abstinence. Capital T, Total. Teetotal.

I have mentioned this before, but the best hangover cure I ever found was a couple of helpings of chilli. Went from death warmed up to raring to go in a matter of minutes.

I refute that. I've had many hangovers and I'm a teetotaller. But admittedly I'm not very good at it.

Since this thread is apparently resurrected, one thing to do to minimise or avoid a hang-over is to drink in the right order. Beer, then wine, then spirits. Basically never go down on alcohol content once you've gone up.

Other than that, drink water and perhaps some painkillers before going to bed. If you even then feel like death when you wake up, fatty food can take care of the nausea. It did for me one of the very few times I've been hung over.

I'm one of those sickening people who doesn't seem to get hangovers. I have had two in my life and both went unnoticed until they went and I realised that I felt better than I had done a couple of hours ago. In both cases, they disappeared after a serving of cheese on toast and fruit juice.

Can't remember where I heard it since it was years ago, but I thought protein was meant to help a hangover. And obviously water too (is it true or just someone trying to scare us straight that alcohol shrinks your brain through dehydration?)

You know how you can suddenly go off some people...

Here's a tip that served me well as a teenager:

If you drink enough, you wake up the next morning still drunk. No hangover!

HTH

Yeah, the times that's happened are among the few times I've felt crap after drinking...

A relative of mine has Prader-Willi syndrome which as one of its' effects means that he can get very drunk on as little as one stubbi (ie one of those mini-bottles of beer), and never has a hangover.

That's the first time I've ever heard someone finding a positive side of having P-W. Mind you, I worked with people with the syndrome before the medical world had worked out early diagnosis and management.
