You wake up with an entire corps of flamenco dancers stomping on your skull. Unfortunately, the only thing that will really help you feel better is time, but there are a few things you can do to help get you through the day and relieve some of the symptoms – such as headache and nausea.

  • Before you fall into bed the night before the morning after, drink one glass of fruit juice and swallow one 500 mg vitamin C tablets, plus one glass of water for each drink you had.
  • Eat some crackers and honey in the morning. They will aid in avoiding nausea and the honey will provide you with a concentrated source of fructose, the sugar that aids in metabolizing the alcohol.
  • Drink some broth which help replace the salt and potassium you lose through the action of alcohol.
  • Drinks lots of water.
  • When you feel a little better, take a vitamin B complex capsule, as alcohol drains these vitamins from your body.
  • Drinks some coffee to constrict the blood vessels in your head which are contributing to the pounding headache you have.
  • Be sure to get a good night’s slept the following night – you should feel better in 24 hours.
  • Eat a good meal before you start drink: it will definitely lessen the hangover.
  • Avoid drinks that contain substances known as congeners. These are other kinds of alcohol found in most alcoholic beverages – vodka has the least -champagne and cognac the most.
