5 Things For Hangovers

Hangovers are a part of life – to most of us – and recovering from them is usually ridiculously painful and horrible. So as someone who obviously has no experience in hangovers (cough, cough, cough) I thought I’d share some tips for surviving them or at least knowing that other people have also felt this way before.

 1. Drink Bucket Loads of Water

Seriously though, if you can remember, put a massive bottle of water by your bed – and the first thing to do when you wake up should be to drink it all up. You need to replace electrolytes that you lost while drinking, so finish that bottle! And then you should refill it, and then drink it again. And then repeat those steps about a hundred times – and you’re mouth will probably still feel like a desert: but you tried right?



2. Sit In The Shower and ReThink Your Life

A shower will help you feel better in general – you’ll feel clean, and slightly less disgusting. Inviting right?Getting into the shower seems to make your life so much better, until you realise that you have to get out again. Here’s a helpful comic to illustrate this point:



3. Coffee, Coffee, Coffee and Bacon

This probably isn’t a super healthy tip but I didn’t say that this was a health blog – I said this would help you survive. Caffeine is going to help you through this. Caffeine is your best friend – and right there at his side is your other homie the greasy, crispy, beautiful bacon sandwich. Because fact: bacon cures everything.

4. Energy Drinks Are A Good Survival Method for Work

Say yes to Red Bull and Play and Monster and all the other things that will probably give you a heart attack before they fix your hangover, but that will also make you vaguely able to do work in some form. Or at least give the appearance of doing work. You can do that. You can make it through the day.

5. Attempt To Forget Work Exists

If the energy drinks aren’t working, and the bacon and coffee are making you feel nauseous just reading about them – this is the only viable option. Go back to bed. Sometimes you just have to sleep it off and you have to let go, because sometimes life doesn’t go as planned. Some people might want to point out that your hangover is your own fault – but lets be honest if you don’t have fun while you’re young, what are you going to smile about when you’re old?

    I love this post! The “vodka” next to my bed literally had me laughing out loud! I’ve had too many of these mornings, you think you’re fine until you wake up to go to the bathroom and bang into a wall. Definitely a “go back to sleep” type of morning.
