Start drinking a week beforehand, building up the quantities so your tolerance levels increase, this was actually recommended by a doctor. And if when the night is over and your laying on the bed and the room is spinning, put one leg over the side of the bed with your foot on the ground. It's strange but it actually stopps the bed spinning.

Drink a glass of water (as big as you can stand) with a mulivitamin and aspirin before your head hits the pillow. It won't totally wipe it out, but it won't be AS bad.

You know, I've tried the drinking way beforehand to prepare for an upcoming event, it was almost 10 years ago but I hate to say this, it works! Hahaha...I am going to have to try the putting my foot on the ground next time my bed spins out of control...I cant wait to see if it works.

It works - gives you a sense of stability.

24 hours is a sure cure. If you can't wait - hair of the dog - shot of tequila, glass of tomato juice and 2 aspirin.

Supposedly, taking aspirin before going to bed will help prevent the headache but water is best. Hangovers are caused by dehydration.

Very true..the only surefire-works every time-without fail that I KNOW works..is a liter of NS (sometimes two) via IV :)

Wow! Thanks for the replys, I'm totally trying the foot on the floor thing, that's hilarious! Next week I'll be testing the build-up-to-the-day-of-drinking method. All good tips! Though the mixture of items sounded kind of rank. Happy St. Pat's Day to all, good luck drinking!

Slainte!

I think this thread is about to become a very popular one tomorrow (today for those of you ahead of us in time). It is almost midnight here in the US east coast...St Paddy's Day is not quite over yet. I am drinking a martini, green of course, it is an apple martini, my favorite...
