Top Ways to Ease a Hangover

10.) Eat eggs - Egg yolks contain large amounts of cysteine, which breaks Acetaldehyde down. Acetaldehyde is one of the causes of a hangover. Eggs are also a good choice because they give you high energy and are very easy to prepare in the morning. Plus, everyone has eggs in the fridge.
9.) Painkillers - Although it is true that coffee can help cure a headache, it dehydrates you as well. Instead of ingesting some java, pop a pill instead. BUT do not take them before sleeping, right after drinking. It only adds stressed to your already stressed liver

8.) More alcohol - people always say that if you want to get rid of your hangover, stay drunk. Of course, this increase the chances that you will turn into an alcoholic...but aren't you already?

7.) Eat some crackers - After a night of drinking, you may feel irritable and tired. this is because of low blood sugar levels. Crackers are carbs, and can therefore increase your blood sugar levels. f course, it won;t stop you from vomiting all over the place, but it is definitely easier to consume than pasta.

6.) Greasy Food - Ease your hangover even before you start drinking. Consume tons of food as it helps slow down your body' ability to absorb alcohol. If your body absorbs alcohol at a slower pace, you get drunk more slowly... so you suffer from less of a hangover.

5.) Make Love - according to doctor Joris Vester, "only time can truly get rid of a hangover. If love making makes you happy, then do it. It will make time go by faster." YES DOCTOR YOU ARE USELESS

4.) Go light - While drinking, choose lighter colored drinks than darker colored ones. For example, choose vodka instead of rum. Darker tinted spirits contain higher levels of congeners, which is toxic to humans.

3.) Stay Up - Instead of sleeping after an all-out drinking session, stay up and load up on water and food. This will help you release some amount of alcohol before sleeping, so you would not wake up in the middle of night just to vomit. And, since you have already expelled some alcohol, your hangover would not be as bad.

2.) Wake up early - wake up at a hour that you usually do. Drink some water, pop a painkiller, and make sure to urinate. This helps the alcohol to escape from your system. Then, go back to sleep and wake up feeling better.

1.) Water - stay hydrated. Alcohol dehydrates you, and that is why you are suffering from a hangover. keep hydrated by drinking lots ad lots and lots of water. And NO. Do not reach for sports drinks. water works as well in this case. Save money. grab water.
