    Ok so here's the story. Yesterday was busy at work so I forgot to each lunch.... went straight to a do after work, so missed dinner.... collided with the free wine... the results were predictable.

    So today I'm very hungover. In fact its nearly tomorrow and I'm still very hungover.

    Thats me done. Now it's your turn. Post your friday night stories and hangover cures here!

    someone told me you get hangovers becuase your body is depleted of lots of vitamins... that's why gatoraid or other vitamin stuff is good..

    is this true?? :?

    No! No! No! Water is the worst thing.
    Hangovers are largely caused by dehydration so you do need to get your fluid levels up. But if you drink plain water your body cannot control the water absorption at a cellular level - the cells can over-hydrate and get damaged (they often rupture).
    You need to rehydrate with water that has balanced electolytes - that is, a mixture of salt and sugar - in it. Then the body can control the intake of water.
    The best thing is a sports drink like Lucozade - but Dr Pepper, Coke or anything like that will do nicely (as long as it isn't diet!)
    Current research shows that there is actually a gene that turns on and works when you drink alcohol. It is thought that it is this gene that contributes to hangovers when it finds no more alcohol to work on.
    This is why the 'hair of the dog' (more alcohol) works and why alcoholics don't get hangovers.
    Trust me. I know about these things

    :) Well I might wanna mention that I rarely drink, and it's even more rare that I get drunk (it's been about a year and a half since I've drank enough to be qualified as "drunk", and probably close to a year since I've even had more than a few sips..wow)...So I guess I'm not as qualified to give hangover advice as Hertz is! :LOL:

    But don't go adding table salt to your water kiddies. It'll taste like crap (I can't back up that statment, I have no idea how salty poo tastes having never tried it) and do you no good.

    Actually if you have dysentery the cure is lots of fluid - 1 teaspoon of sugar and 1/2 of salt per litre. One to remember. It could save a life!
