Thread Name: BS: Hangover Cure
Subject: RE: BS: Hangover Cure
Loads of fruit sugars to counter the hypoglycaemia, plenty of water for the dehydration and a good fry-up to give the churning guts something to churn on.
And, just when the hangover kicks into overdrive as noon looms the following day, a bullshot - beef consomme with a large measure of vodka and a small dry sherry.
Aussie mates swear by an effervescent vitamin B-complex made by Roche and called Berocca - and Aussies know a thing or two about the getting of hangovers.
Hangovers are made much worse if you smoke or spend time in a smoky atmosphere, as the brain is starved of oxygen (what happens is a mild carbon monoxide poisoning) from veins which have already shrivelled up to half their usual diameter from the alcohol. So find a friendly medic and have a few lungs-full of pure oxygen - that'll get the ox off the roof pretty quickly.
Or you could just not get so rat-arsed the night before... ...sorry, I'll get me coat. Didn't mean to swear!
