Hangover Cure Suggestions
“Slurpees or slushies are amazing for hangovers. I don’t know why but the sudden shock of coldness and the overload of sugar really helps me out a lot. :P”
– Graphic & UI Designer
– Executive Assistant
“Mixing Pepto Bismol, 2 liquid Advils and coconut water, always worked for me.”
– Business Development
My best tip in avoiding a hangover is don’t stop drinking!
– Junior Designer
Drunk me *generally* looks out for tomorrow me… before bed drunk me will down 2 glasses of water (because the worst hangovers are generally just from dehydration in my experience), and if drunk me is feeling exceptionally nice, he’ll get tomorrow me a Gatorade too…which was actually a tip from one of our old developers.
Oh – another remedy is to avoid all-day drinking (like the ones that happen when you go to an all-inclusive in Mexico); you build up (or feel like you’ve built up) a tolerance to booze throughout the day and you drink more to feel rad…the next thing you know you’re black-out drunk, or hugging the porcelain throne… There are no remedies once that happens; you’re gonna be hungover for sure…possibly for days.

“The best remedy I can think of is Just Water.”
– CEO of Just Wine and Just Beer
If those were not enough perhaps try these weird hangover remedies from around the world. Warning some of them are crazy gross so you might want to read it before you get a hangover and not while you are hungover. I think I’d only ever want to have a hangover in Canada or Namibia.
Oh, I almost forgot my piece of advice: if you are going to get hangover drunk, please do it responsibly. Don’t drive or do anything dangerous that puts you and others at risk.
We hope you have an easy International Hangover Day!
