    dude...Propel and a banana.....then more water....

    I drank martinis all weekend. I think I'm going to have another one tonight for the game.

    No day off for me tomorrow. :(
    believe it or not, we don't "need" anything. that is only the spoiled brat in us trying to fill some temporary solution to an emptyness that does not exist.

    To avoid hangover in the future, if you know you are going to go out drinking that night, start drinking water the morning before, and drink water all day, get yourself really hydrated..go drinking alcohol.. drink a few more glasses of water the morning after and you'll be fine.

    Don't the vitamins get digested and absorbed into your system long after your hangover is finished? I thought you had to take vitamins for weeks before you see results..

    Nope.

    A hangover isn't the result of a lack of alcohol in the system. The shitty feeling is a result of the metabolic breakdown of ethanol into an aldehyde. That aldehyde is what causes the shitty feeling.

    Everyone has "what has worked for them", but there are myths, urban legend and then there is science.
    As mentioned before, there is no "cure". You can greatly reduce the effects of a hangover buy drinking plenty of water the night before and taking a B-complex tablet. Vitamin B chemically binds to the aldehyde that is created by ethanols metabolism.

    When you hear of people going blind because they drink methanol (wood alcohol) it's because the body metabolizes that into the most simple aldehyde (formaldehyde...which also is a carcinogenic agent). When ethanol is "broken down" it retains an additional CH2, whereby making it a more complex aldehyde, and one the body can naturally metabolize (it just takes some time. Vitamin B speeds this up!). It is this aldehyde that makes you feel shitty. In fact, a common treatment for the consumption of methanol is ethanol. It's true. What happens is that the influx of EtOH (ethanol) causes the addition of an extra CH2 to the toxic methanol. You won't go blind, but you will really feel like shit the next day.

    Vitamin B-Complex is your friend.
