"Drink at least half a pint of milk before going out. The milk helps
to line the stomach and help to stop the irritating effects of the alcohol
against the stomach lining.
Keith, Clifton, Nottingham, England."
"Don't drink on an empty stomach. Before you go out, have a meal that includes
carbohydrates, such as pasta or rice, or fats. The food will help slow down the body's absorption of alcohol.
Jane, Barnsley, South Yorkshire, England."
"To prevent a hangover, or to help prevent a hangover, as it really depends on a
lot of things, like the type of drinks you're drinking, but usually, if I drink
a pint of water just before going out and maybe half a pint half-way through the
night, that's usually a good way to prevent hangovers.
Colin, Alvaston, Derby, England."
"As far as hangover cures go, an excellent cure for a hangover, (apart from not indulging in any
alcohol at all!!!), is to drink Lucozade sports drink first thing in the
morning. I can't remember the exact reasons, something to do with putting the
sugars and minerals back into the system. I read about it somewhere many years
ago and it definitely works for me.
Joe, Staines, Middlesex, England."
"A good cure for a hangover, is to try,
wherever you can, to avoid any dark colour alcohol drinks, like brandy, whisky,
port, red wine etc. It might not cure a hangover completely, because it all depends on
how much alcohol you drink, but it usually helps me a lot.
Diane, Brough, East Yorkshire, England."
"A good hangover cure, is to eat an 'unhealthy' fatty breakfast and drink half
a pint (a pint if you can) of orange juice, it's always worked for me.
Kev, Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, England."
"I've tried a few hangover cures, but I always find taking a couple of vitamin C
tablets, the following morning is the best cure for a hangover.
Paul, North Shields, Tyne and Wear, England."
"Over the years, I've tried a
lot of hangover cures, but the best of all hangover cures, is to drink at least half a pint of any sports drink the next
morning, as it contains all the vitamins and minerals that you're body is
gasping for !
Steve, Denton, Manchester, England."
"A good cure for a hangover, that always works for me, is to eat a couple of
oranges, first thing in the morning.
Claire, Bletchley, Milton Keynes, England."
"One of the best cures for hangovers
I've ever come across, is to drink at least a pint of water just before the
drinking starts and even better, is to drink half a pint of water every couple
of hours during the drinking, (I don't always manage that one, but when I do, it
definitely helps the head in the morning!!!).
Hope this helps.
John, Barwell, Leicester, England."
