    It was AWFUL! I didn't have any headache or anything like that, maybe just a mild one at best, but man! I was nauseous! I didn't want to eat anything at all, and I had this pressing need to "swallow my pride" and keep from barfing. I took some Pepto to try and help it, but eventually, I succumbed and fell victim to dry heaves!

    I'm really not like a habitual drinker or anything. It was just the first party I had been able to go to since I moved to Eugene. My poison: amaretto. And you know...I actually had a really great time! XD

    All the same, though. HANGOVERS SUCK! The appeal of a great time pales in comparison to the nausea. I think I'll avoid the booze for awhile...

    you don't need to avoid the booze, you just need a little self control on how much you consume.......coming from a recovering overconsumer..........icon_wink.gif

    Your FIRST hangover?! Aw how precious!

    You probably were thinking "ah I never want to drink again", but you eventually get over that feeling and just keep drinking anyways.

    I ALWAYS get hangovers and I don't know why. Well, I guess I know why, because I drink too much when I drink. Actually, I take that back, beer doesn't really give me hangovers, but vodka does. Last weekend I drank an 18 of keystone and woke up feeling like a million bucks!

    For your future reference, best way to cure a hangover is to hydrate as much as possible when you wake up (Gatorade is best for this), take a Goody's Headache Powder (I usually take 3 but I am borderline insane so maybe 1 or 2 for you). Then once your stomach is decent enough, EAT! Food makes the world of difference when you are hungover

    Your first one huh??? Shoot, I had one this morning... It wasn't too bad though... If I slept longer it would have gone away. But I had to wait it out.

    Best cure for a hangover is one of these... You need to get the alcohol absorbed out of your body...

    And of all things to drink why Amaretto?

    That actually looks really good right about now. Is that In-N-Out? Sadly, I live in Oregon and am not privileged with said restaurants... icon_sad.gif

    Why amaretto? I think the question is "why not amaretto?" Because i like it. very tasty, but also very strong.

    Yep, that's the legendary In and Out Double Double... I get mine animal style of course... But there should be even better food out there in Oregon...


    I know Ameretto is strong.. I just don't drink it straight.. I love the smell and cooking with it... But each to their own.. I'm a Jack Daniels type of individual...

    I rarely (and I mean two or three times in my life) get nauseous when I'm hungover. Usually I just feel groggy, out of it and in mild pain (head, etc).

    Drinking a ton of water and an Emergen-C packet before you go to bed help a lot, as does waiting until you have sobered up before you go to bed.

    Next time take some time to throw up the night before. You'll feel better in the morning.

    I've never been drunk and never will be. What a waste of your liver. Hope you have fun throwing up and having hangovers and willfully destroying your nervous system and liver.

    That is an absolute lie! Not that I throw up a lot from drinking icon_neutral.gif but when I do, I wake up the next morning feeling awful and continue to throw up!

    you need to hydrate......drink a mix of water and Gatorade and pop a few Tylenol and have some toast to help settle your stomach....and sip on some hot tea......headache is from dehydration as is the nausea....rehydrate, get your carbs and protein up and you will feel better...don't drink so much!icon_cool.gif

    The less alcohol your body absorbs the less it has to detoxify.

    Or take some time to drink a glass of water between every drink. You will drink less and you will be less dehydrated.

    Me personally... I hate hang overs. So I avoid them like the plague.

    While I'm out: After I'm done drinking for the nite, I start drinking waters- ask for the cups with no ice. (By the way: a lot of bars with serve you free soda pop if you say you are the designated driver, but you can't have any alcohol)

    When I get home: I drink some more water (remember all alcohol does is dehydrates you and you need to re-hydrate). If and when, because I always do, I wake up go to the bathroom, before returning to sleep I drink some more water.

    This usually works for me, I've occasionally drank too much where I wake up still with a hang over, but that's what I get

    Ok, I just checked your age and now this makes sense.

    You need to drink water before bed, lots of it and if you're hungover in the morning eat eggs, toast (on the burnt side) and a banana. Always helps me.

    Oooo, first time and it led to barfing, hehe! I think everybody has one of those hangovers at least once at some point in their life, and it usually only takes one instance to never repeat. icon_razz.gif

    As far as the only remedy to get over a hangover is time, food does help when it's available to eat. I find eating oatmeal really helps me, since the oatmeal acts like a sponge, helping to soak up some of the alcohol. icon_smile.gif

    I had some epic drunks since I was 18, legal age at the time, my worst at 21. That one was so bad I wonder I didn't have alcohol poisoning, and I vowed to learn to better know my limits in the future. I've miscalculated a few times, and ended up hugging the toilet half the night, but not for quite a while.

    I know what works for my hangovers, though I rarely get them now, mainly if I mix the wrong kinds of alcohol, especially red wines. But I'm not sure that's ultimately good information. Maybe hangovers are the body's natural speed governor, reminding us to slow down. And if the misery is enough, the motivation to use restraint should be higher.

    WARNING: SOME GRAPHIC AND UNPLEASANT IMAGES

    Story: 1971 at Ft Knox, Kentucky, I'm a young Army Sergeant and I went over to visit friends in another barracks. One of the other Sergeants had several bottles of booze in his room (I can't remember if that was allowed then, or he had just smuggled them in). So we sat down for drinks around a small table when somebody suggested a chugging contest with the whiskey.

    So that's what we do, using mess hall water glasses that held about 6 ounces. Never did that before, but I was doing pretty good, I think finishing my third glass, and maybe our second bottle. All of I sudden I began to hear this roaring sound in my ears, something like a train approaching. I stood up and announced I needed to find a room quickly, until I could ride my motorcycle back to my own barracks. Reaching my hand out for the room's door knob was the last thing I remember, before I blacked out.

    They got me into an empty room with a bunk, and locked it behind them so no one else would stumble in on me. Sometime during the night I awoke to the sensation of the mattress flying all around the room. I grabbed it and hung on for dear life until I passed out again.

    I awoke at dawn on the hard floor on my stomach, the mattress now on top of me. My face was in a pool of my own vomit. Fortunately the mattress wasn't stained, which I put back on the springs. I spent some time in the latrine vomiting more, cleaned myself up a bit at the sink, then brought a bucket and mop into the room to clean up.

    I next visited a friend from the night before who was just waking up in his own room, this being a Sunday, and he wondered if I wanted to take our motorcycles for a ride later. Much later, I replied, but first back to my barracks to shower and recover. I returned around 1.

    I wasn't up to a long ride, and by the time we reached Otter Creek Park, on the Ohio River, I told him I wanted to rest a while. We took my big Harley and his BSA as far as we could down a path out of sight, and then walked to the Otter Creek. There he suggested we take a swim, that might help sober me up some more. We had no suits, but we figured we could skinny dip in that section in privacy.

    It was May, and the water still pretty chilly. A few minutes after we got out into it the effect of the cold seemed to make me instantly drunk all over again, and I began having trouble swimming and staying afloat in the swift Spring current, calling for help. My friend already couldn't reach me since I had drifted so far, so he got out of the water and started running along the shore naked, calling out helplessly to me, but trying to encourage me, as I was being swept down to the Ohio River, also stark naked, attempting to stay above the water but losing the battle. It was really quite scary.

    I saw a bend coming, luckily on his side, and using my last remaining energy aimed for it. I was able to grab an overhanging tree branch and pull myself ashore. There we both collapsed, laughing at the silliness of it (and stupidity), me between panting gasps. And then I threw up again. That was enough, we got dressed and back on our bikes. I can't remember if we rode much anymore, or just back to Knox, which was fairly close. After that incident I couldn't even think about alcohol for weeks & weeks, much less drink it.
