How to cure the ultimate hangover!

By Emma
How to cure the ultimate hangover!

Oh hangover, the ever-faithful friend!

Every booze-hardened student will have a sworn cure for reducing hangover suffering. Just in case though, here are a few of our tried and tested ideas sure to get you back on the road in no time.

Cure 1: Disregard everything on The Student Guide’s Fool-Proof Formula for the Ultimate Hangover

Cure 2: Before you drink

Line your stomach to slow alcohol absorption. Different people suggest different things, including a teaspoon of olive oil, a glass of buttermilk, and a dose of milk thistle extract. This sounds like rubbish to us; we suggest a hearty, carby meal.

Cure 3: Late-night munchies

Whether it’s a dirty kebab or a slice of toast, this will help soak up the alcohol. Wash it down with lots of water.

Cure 4: Hair of the Dog

Drinking alcohol the morning after may sound like the least desirable option on earth, but many drunkards swear by this method.

Cure 5: Fry Up

The Full-English is the ultimate hangover saviour. If you can’t manage the whole fried breakfast-shebang, a greasy bacon/fried egg/fish finger sandwich is a satisfactory substitute.

Cure 6: Fizzy Drinks

In particular, Dr Pepper. There’s a reason why they call him the doctor.

Cure 7: Vitamins

Pop a Berocca and you’ll soon feel more alive.

Cure 8: Dialysis

If you can afford a champagne hangover, you can afford dialysis. Cleans your kidneys so you don’t have to.

Cure 9: Prairie Oyster

Tried and tested by the most decadent drinkers, including James Bond, Bertie Wooster and Doc Emmet Brown, the Prairie Oyster is for extreme hangover situations only. Crack an egg into a glass (keeping the yolk unbroken), add Worcestershire sauce and hot sauce, season with salt and pepper, and knock it back. Truly vomit-inducing. 

Cure 10: Sleep

Retreat beneath your sheets, and hibernate until the room stops spinning.
