Meaning, not tips for people who want to get hangover, though I can tell you, I KNOW how to get a hangover so if you're interested just ask. No, I was thinking more about how to get rid of hangover. The reason I'm posting this is because right now I'm suffering from a hangoverus majorus that's killing me and I need your help. I tried eggs, chilli and hair from a dog that bit me but that wasn't any help, thank you so much Mr. Ahern and Mr. Ackley.

Sooo, any tips? I've tried these: buttermilk, coffee, water, hot chocolate, rice with chicken sauce & steak. (Not all of these were purposedly for hangover cure but they could've helped? Maybe?)

Tell your hangover stories if you like, I'm off to buy some magic beans or something.

How am I not surprised that this thread was created by a fellow Finn?

Anyway, the truth is there's not a way to cure hangover. You just have to suffer it, and you probably want tips on how to make it less painful.

How to prevent hangover/make the next morning easier:
1. Don't mix drinks too much. The usual routine may be 4-5 beers & 2-3 long drinks and some vodka at home -> you hit the bar: 8-10 beers/ciders/long drinks, some fisherman and salmari shots, a few mariannes/white russians, and before you know what hit you, tequilas (Americans especially seem to have a thing for tequila -.-) This combo will surely lead to a hangover next morning. Try to stick with 1-3 types of drinks all night (for example, beer & vodka).

2. Water. I can't explain how helpful it is. Drink a glass of water per every 4-5 alcohol portions you consume. And before you go to sleep, try to drink about half a litre at least.

3. Eat before you go drinking. If you drink with an empty stomach, you can even feel sick in the morning.

4. Take your Visa Electron/another bank card/credit card and put it in your friend's jacket and leave it on the 'narikka' (the jacket stand thing) when you hit the bar. Try to take about 30-50€ cash with you - and when that runs out, stop! (if you have offered your buddies some drinks ask for them to pay back!!)

5. Drink more often
Drink about 2-6 days a week. Soon you'll reach the condition when you hardly get a hangover (you become quite immune/used to the situation - your body doens't recognize it's hangover anymore)

If these fail and you do wake up with a hangover, do the following;

1. Continue the sleep if possible. The trick is to sleep the blues-drunkness (laskuhumala) and early & mid-hangover away.
1.2 You can't continue sleep because
     - you have to go to work/school/date. Take a shower, grab an ED/red bull/energy drink on the way, after an hour or two buy a Jaffa/Fanta. Try to concentrate on your duty, take deep breaths. Keep your mind busy.
     - you can't get sleep. Open the TV/IRC, drink water, get buried in your couch. No matter what show is on, just watch. Drink more water.

2. Usually the problem is solved after the sleep. It may be possible, however, that you still have a slight headache and s*itty feeling. Go to nearest McDonalds or Ahmed's KebabPizza and eat like an animal, even if you feel like you can't. Take a walk in the park or something, get some fresh air - seaside is great. Play some computer games. Call your friend and ask how you guys' night was like (you probably don't remember much of it). Laugh at those stupid things you did (it really wasn't clever to take your pants off and try to have sex with a car's exhaust pipe, right?). Then go play some computer games at home/play guitar - do your hobbies. In a few hours, you'll be like a new man.

3. If the problem is not solved after the sleep, and you wake up with a seriously bad hangover, grab a cold gin long drink (bought from Alko - ALWAYS have a few of these in your fridge) and without much thinking, drink it. Lay in the bed, in ferocious delirium, fearing that you'll die - or actually, that you won't. Grab another ice cold GLD, repeat process. With the third, cook yourself some greasy stuff, bacon, eggs and small sausages (nakit) are great. In this point, you have usually balanced your situation; you're hung over AND slightly drunk = + - 0. Also, at this point, you can usually drink other alcoholic beverages (c'mon guys, beer is just awful for hangover - but when you're hitting the balance, it's okay again). Continue by taking one alcohol portion per every half an hour or an hour 'til you go sleep (and boy, you must go early! Around 6-7 pm is okay). However, I myself usually get a new 'rise' when I try to balance - that may lead to another night out. If this happens, sleep the next damn day away, ignoring job/school/date/friends.

4. If you managed to have sex, and
     - you wake up at her(his??) apartment, quickly put your clothes on without waking her up, and get out. If you have to take a hangover-crap, do it silently in her bathroom(I know, it's easy to say, huh). Go home and follow the advice given in this post. Doesn't matter if you know where you are or not, try to find your way. Try to drink her juice/soda if she has any in the fridge.
     - you both wake up at your place, "accidentally" wake her up, ignore her completely and make her leave. Then follow the advice given in this post.

5. If you wake up somewhere, and you have no idea where you are, first check out if you're in the same country (try to find some newspapers/road signs). Then check out if you're in the right city. After that, look if there are any of your friends around. If there are, hang out with them and drink water/eat food. If there are no familiar faces around, get out of there fast, and head home to follow the advice given in this post.

6. On any other situations, the main thing is the same - try to sleep as much as you can & force yourself to eat something & drink water. If you have a mild hangover, you can do sports/drive a car, but if you're truly hung over, do neither.

I'll update you with any critical info that may come to my mind later. The tips I've given here are all tested and have worked at least for me. Remember that we're all different, though. And sometimes you just have to suffer the crap through.

Looks like you've eaten a lot in the space of one mornings. I'm lucky enough in that I never seem to get hungover, unless you count the occasional strange-feeling stomach afterwards. I've been to the "I drank too much and started puking for an hour" stage, but I was fine in the morning.

In short, I really don't know what will help. Did you try any medication for headaches and the likes? Painkillers maybe?

This you should do in advance, not after (apparently the fat slows the in-take of alcohol and so somewhat limits the hang over). If you already have a hangover, your stomach isn't working properly just yet and so you're prone to puke if you eat too much. Though it's good to take a light breakfast regardless. But definitely don't eat more than you feel like eating. I remember one particularly bad hangover day when I ate I think one or two buns in the morning and nothing else until 5, when I had fried octopus rings. It was a weird day.

Apart from that, brilliant post.

Aww man. Right. Thing is I don't often get hangovers but thing is also that I don't often drink half a litre of rum, 1.5 litres of beer and about a litre of long drinks. I'm not necessarily implying I did yesterday... Uhhm. Right. So anyway.
Does this guarantee a messy stomach and a headache next mornign, in addition to feeling like, well, pity? The answer is: if you stayed up till 5 a.m. and went to work at 8 a.m., then HELLS YES.
Call your friend and ask how you guys' night was like (you probably don't remember much of it). Laugh at those stupid things you did (it really wasn't clever to take your pants off and try to have sex with a car's exhaust pipe, right?).
Luckily things never got that bad out of hand. I was still somewhat in command though I couldn't find my nose if I closed my eyes.

My main problem is that... well my main problem is that I drank too much okay? Right. I was going to say that I couldn't afford a pizza or anything.

Right, so afternoon was pretty good starting from 3 p.m. so two hours into 'Pretty okay'. I've been drinking water and eating bread during the whole day. Bad thing is I'm not ENTIRELY sure of my condition, you know, and I'm supposed to go to my girlfriend's place in an hour.
Shit I've got to take a shower! So bye and thanks for the tips! MAY THIS THREAD STAND AS A REMINDER OF OUR FOLLIES! Man, I ain't ever drinking (that much) again!

But coming from me that's credible since this is like the third time in my life that I say that and usually it takes me up to 8 months to break that promise! Before living in France, the land of semi-free alcohol, I barely drunk ever at all. Usually I take a few glasses of wine or a couple of Cuba Libres. So, I'm gladly sticking to that routine from now on. It's great to experiment once in a while so you know what just ain't right for you!

That is true, but if you eat too well before going out, it'll take quite a lot of time and money to get drunk. =/ It's all about balancing. A matter of taste, I suppose.

... how to get rid of hangover.
Man-up.

Or...

Eat eggs, toast, orange juice, and some fruit (banana). I can't think of the reasons off the top of my head, but each has a property that replaces what you lost the night before. So essentially, just eat a normal breakfast. Oddly enough, I only eat breakfast on the weekends now.

My brother--who's a bar-back downtown--says that a Bloody Mary is also a great rememdy (I assume because of the veggies).

One thing many people forget is that the body loses plenty of salts and minerals when drinking. If you can't/don't eat a proper meal after drinking, at least try to eat something nutritious. A bag of nuts and a glass of milk makes me feel much better.

Don't try easing yourself out of it. Once I woke up badly hung over, so I tried that. I downed a shot of vodka, then half an hour later, a half shot. Didn't work. I threw up almost immediatly after and felt worse for even longer. (Although I had drank more the previous night than I had drank in a long time)

If you have to throw up, don't hold it in (aka: you passed out still super drunk) I tried to be manly and hold my puke in, but it just made me feel even more nauseous than usual. Puking usually helps.

The best way to avoid a hangover is to stay drunk.

In fact I did eat sandwiches at approximately 4.30 a.m.

I'm feeling great now, though. And that's because it's now morning and I DIDN'T drink last night.

Being the 20-year-old U.S.A.-living law-violating former-alchoholic that I am, water has always been the best bet to avoid a bad hangover in the morning. Drinking water while you're drinking beer works wonders. What I hear is that the alchohol dehydrates you, which is the cause of the worst morning hangovers; progressive water-drinking rehydrates your body.

And uh... listen to Surge. Sounds like he knows his stuff.
