Shannon's Steps to Preventing a Hangover

hangover curesYou may be wondering who Shannon is and why she has any knowledge of the topic.  Allow me to introduce myself…my name is Shannon and I am the owner of this site!  I am embarrassed to admit that I have had a lot of experience with drinking alcohol. I do not consider myself to be an alcoholic but when I drink, I go heavy.  In my 20's, I would wake feeling horrible but by the end of the next day, I was at it again, at least a few times per week. It always seems to be easier when we are younger. Well years later, I still continue to drink but not as often. I am a single mom who has every other weekend free and so I live it up on my kid-free weekends.

There was a time when I would get deathly ill after a night of drinking. You would think after a few times, it would be enough for me to stop drinking. Instead, I continued to find different ways to ease my hangover and now I have my perfect cure.  Below are the steps I take to prevent a hangover:

  1. Before going out, I always make sure that I eat something that will absorb alcohol.  Something with bread seems to work well.
  2. Once I am out, I try to pace myself and drink a water between every two drinks or so. I should mention that I can drink beer like a rock star and even throw back a few shots.
  3. Once I am home, the first thing I do is drink Cold and Flu Alkaseltzer.  It is a MUST for me.  I get the dissolving tablets and it tastes like orange. If I know I am staying at friends, I bring it with me. I swear it is the one thing that prevents me from vomiting the next day.
  4. I drink a lot of water and keep a water bottle next to my bed.  Whenever I wake throughout the night (if I do), I take a drink of water.  Gatorade or any drink with electrolytes are good too.
  5. When I wake up, I drink a lot more water.
  6. It is recommended to eat eggs for breakfast.  I make a protein shake which includes a banana.  Banana's are also known to help with hangovers.
  7. I am usually feeling fine in the morning, just tired but I believe that showers (or baths) make me feel even better.  It is very refreshing!
  8. I continue to drink as much water as possible throughout the day.

If I am feeling tired the next day after drinking, then it's a good “hangover day”.  I have even found the energy to exercise later in the day on occasion.  I follow those steps religiously every time and if I don't, I will most likely end up very nauseated the next day.  It still happens from time to time but not enough for me to stop drinking!
