    Ok, so here's the deal. I drank way too much yesterday.icon_redface.gif

    Im still a little noxious, dizzy, sleepy and what ever else comes with a hangover. I think Im still partially drunk. I have to work in 4 hours. Whats the quickest way to get sober? icon_razz.gif I have to work from 6 till 2 or something so it will be a lousy night anyways >.<

    so basically the question is, what works for you to get ready for work after a good night of going out and a fair amount of drinks?
    Im also curious about stories of guys who drank too much and went to work anyways the next day ;)

    He's right, your body is in withdrawal! Give it what it wants ;)

    but probably not the best decision before work... you're stuck with aspirin and lots of liquids.

    you say that now...wait until next weekend

    i always drink a few glasses of water before I go to bed, a hangover is just dehydration...gatorade is also fantastic because not only is it hydrating you, but its replacing the electrolytes you pee out with all of that alcohol. try to get some a drink it with a few advil or aleve (tylenol never helps me)

    finally, eat...you wont feel better until you eat something, but it always seems like the most unhealthy foods (except for maybe an egg sandwich) make you feel better

    i've gone to work maaaaany times hungover...10am Sat/Sun morning are NO FUN, but you learn to cope and at least look presentable.

    oh, and please shower...you smell like last night icon_biggrin.gif

    Perhaps reading this too late now to help the OP, but for future reference: I agree, drink lots of water. Some food can help, unless I'm really drunk to the point of being naseous.

    Carbs work best for me, but you may get better results with other foods. When my stomach is touchy I'll start with bread and crackers, and avoid anything greasy, like some items on the classic US breakfast menu.

    I'll also take some ibuprofen (trade names like Motrin and Advil in the US), which is not only a pain reliever but also an anti-inflammatory. My own theory is that I think it may help a little to reduce vascular swelling in the brain. Likewise, in severe cases I'll also take a couple of Sudafed tablets for congestion, just the plain version, not the cold combination, which contains acetaminophen (Tylenol), nor the 12-hour version. Sudafed decongestant (and some similar) act as a vasodilator, again relaxing & opening vasular constrictions due to alcohol.

    As a preventive, before beginning drinking I'll often take ibuprofen, and again before going to bed. We had a bottle of wine last night over dinner, and that's exactly what I did. Just be sure to eat at least some bread because ibuprofen by itself can upset some stomachs.

    Last, if available I'll sit in a sauna or steam room, what used to be considered a standard way to help get over a hangover. The idea of course is that you sweat out the toxins more quickly, and I think it can work. Just make sure to keep drinking lots of water throughout, and try to go with someone, in case you get light-headed.

    Yes, except I see I made a typo, writing "naseous" instead of nauseous. My spell checker needs checking... icon_razz.gif

    If your job involves decisions or actions that could be dangerous to you or others, consider calling in sick.

    If you can safely go in, then put the coffee pot on, eat lightly, take a short walk, shower and brave it. Lots of liquids. Breathe and focus.

    While time is the only thing that can truly sober you up, here is my remedy for a hangover:

    -A shower (because you feel gross & it will wake you up)
    -Eggs/Bacon/toast (definetly eggs) - you want the fat content and the carbs
    -2 tylenol or some other pain killer (for the headache)
    -gatorade/viamin water (for the electrolytes b/c you're dehydrated)
    -Banannas (for the potassium)

    Bloody Mary!!
    A little booze the morning after can only help at this point.
    I wrote an article on Hangover Remedies once; a hangover is like eighty five percent dehydration; the remainder is your body craving to replace lost vitamins, primarily B vitamins.
    Also, eat Carbs! You body converts booze into Acetate, but needs carbs to expell the Acetate! Bloody Mary , carbs, water!
    The ancient Romans swore by fried canary as their hangover remedy of choice, but you don't have to.

    LOL I read that as "crabs" instead of carbs and I was thinking who can cook a crab while recovering from a hangover. icon_biggrin.gif
