A Concise Explanation of Hangovers, Why You Get Them, and Why You’re Screwed [VIDEO]

By: Josh Wolford - June 5, 2013

Awaking with a massive hangover is one of life’s greatest leveling moments. Everyone (who drinks) knows the feeling, and it reduces nearly everyone to a slow, miserable, couch-bound, stinking mess.

In my early days of partying a bit too hard, a friend (former) once told me that a shot of heavy cream followed by a shot of vinegar would fix me right up. He was wrong. He’s also a jerk.

Nope, hangovers happen for three reasons, which are concisely explained in the following video. And once it sets in, the only thing you can do is ride it out. And drink a few Gatorades. Maybe watch a Mythbusters marathon. Definitely eat some bacon.

    Good info. I have heard and practiced that a good breakfast of eggs, orange juice, bacon, bannanas, and hash browns helps speed the recovery of vital nutrients. (optionally followed by a shot of hair of the dog, …. works for me).

    Also, the night of, before you go to bed, drink as many tall glasses of purified (not tap) water as you can hold. Like, 8 glasses if you can do it. 1 or 2 tylenol before bed will help, but note that the combo of tylenol and alcohol is hard on the liver.
