And this is progress?
I remember when it was a bacon and egg sandwich and a can of Irn Bru.

Hangover "cures" don't really work, only prevention does. Look at the ingredients - all it is is 500mg aspirin plus 60mg caffeine. It just treats the headache and gives you a caffeine jolt.  You could just take an aspirin and drink two cans of Coca Cola.  

I find its better to focus on prevention as I've gotten older. Taking NAC and Vitamin C supplements before drinking helps your liver produce certain chemicals (glutathione) that aid in processing out alcohol. Those two plus lots of water will definitely help prevent hangovers. You can find more info by googling NAC and alcohol.  I started using it about six months ago and I believe it really does make a difference.

Glasgow equivalent - roll and square sliced sausage and a bottle of ginger. ?

Isn't this stuff just an Alka-Seltzer knock off?

BTW, a couple of aspirin before bed can ward off most hangovers

Gonna chime in here, only because I know of two foolproof hangover cures. 

Both are a little difficult to acquire for every hangover, but I have experienced them and honestly vouch for them.

First one is, get yourself a doctor or paramedic friend. Mine at the time was training for the ambulance service. Get out the IV saline and within 10 minutes you will be fine. It is truly amazing. 

Second one is, go scuba diving. Working at a facility, that I cannot mention, we use to go down for 20 minutes with a high oxygen mix and come up feeling better than before you went out the night before.

where were you last night?

i am very proud to say that i caught a fugu on fly in the christmas islands. was talking to my guide who was keen to keep it for the kids. i pointed out how they had poisonous parts and was that safe? feeding them to kids? i pointed out that specialist japanese chefs trained for seven years to remove the dangerous bits. he looked at me like i was an idiot (not for the first time - he had seen me cast) and said that it takes them four seconds to learn that. you just chop off the dangerous bit and then eat it.

I can also attest to the effectiveness of scuba diving. My brothers and I did a week long trip in the Virgin Islands where we spent our days diving, and our nights trying to consume every drop of alcohol on the island. I’d jump in the water, praying for death and surface feeling like a new man.

I was recalling a very seedy t-shirt shack in Florida that was selling a garment that showed an trouserless angler, waist deep in a lake, being pleasured by a bass. The caption was"The Happy Fisherman"...

My recipe is a trifecta: gatorade, a slug of vodka, and a mug of liquid caffeine.

Not that I have needed this for some time.  Age and experience have taught me two valuable lessons: to know my limits, and not to mix my drink.  It's much better than to relive the days when technicolour yawns were a frequent weekend pastime...

Ah, so it is the North American wide mouth bass that is the proverbial blowfish . . . :thinking:

There is a service out by my summer place called IV Docs.  They are also in NYC.  Rich people call them when they have a hangover and they come to your home and start IV fluids.  They charge something like $250 for straight IV fluids.  Then you can add in things to the IV like Vitamin B12, for an extra charge,

I had heard a story related to this 'treatment'. I'm not sure if the addition is urban myth or not. but my mate said a male nurse friend had done this to themselves, but were so trashed, that they had managed to knock the bag down from height, during the night, and woke up to a plump bag of half saline, half his own blood on the floor,  and a head that felt like Satans toilet. 

Again, the jury is definitely out on weather this ever happened, but if it did, good lord, that must of been a bad morning.

I don't think hangovers are such a bad thing.

They're a great natural warning system. 

If a smoke alarm goes off in the house, we don't just tape a pillow over it. Considering the cause is sometimes a useful exercise!

I'm just saying.

Of course the saying "do as I say, not as I do" also comes to mind!

Stangely, and I think this comes with age. "Dropping the kids off at the pool" becomes a noticeable milestone in the recovery process. I never noticed this in my 20's but in my 30's, the point where I feel. "I might just survive this" often occurs just after closing the bathroom door on a fug of my very own, homemade nerve agent.
