Advantages It teaches me not to drink so much......
Disadvantages i forget
Ok im a second year student i indulge in the alcohol probably slightly more than most of my friends and seem to have a fairly high tolerance level at the moment. But i do still fall victim to the hangover. I am currently trying varied hangover cures so far these have worked or not.
The traditional stay in bed till it goes. I like this one mainly because even nonhungover it can take me hours to get up, but your hungover, you probably need the toliet and the room is spinning, while you try to unstick your tongue from the roof of your mouth/pillow/floor. So staying put isnt exactly a good option. At the very least you need water and the bathroom. So you have to get up, cure blown already.
Next is the BANANA plan, BANANA meaning BAth, Neurofen And No Alcohol. Sadly for me i cant really say if this one works, i like my bath and i have taken the neurofen but hang on whats that, oh yeah its my phone happily ringing with the news that my friend needs to see me, NOW in the local pub. Up until now the plan is great, i feel great which is where it falls apart, the neurofen has done its job my head is clear, im walking and talking and my brain has forgotten that i thought i was dying earlier so on comes the vodka lemonade. On the one occasion i managed this one i did feel fine and was my usual 'happy' self at work the next evening, which as they werent used to it led my collegues to think i was still hungover. So this gets the thumbs up.
Next good old alka seltzer. It says on the box it works best if taken before bed, so after a recent wedding i come home as drunk as i remember being for a long time and while in the process of trying to take off my dress decide to go get the alka seltzer (no logic im drunk remember), so i fall down stairs- typical the dress decides to undo itself half way down stairs. In the kichen i do my best to read the instructions without turning on the main lights, an pour myself a couple of pints of water, dropping the tablets in to one i down the second, as the first fizzes. Then drinking the first i pour a second. And leave it on a chair in the middle of the kitchen and take myself to bed. On waking i find theres more water by my bed a cup of tea and two more tablets, god knows i love my dad. So as the room spins around me i drop the tablets in to the water, you know that fizzing is a very satisfying noise, pity the room hasnt slowed down yet.
By lunchtime i was almost back to normal but my drinking was of epic proportions (i was challenged to drink with the best man, and ushers i think i held my own, but theyre 6ft+ rugby boys), i'll be giving this one another (3) chance(s) as theres 10 tablets to a box (and ive used 4).
The one most people try is just leave it and carry on as normal. I have 2 jobs i cycle to my day job which is about 5 miles from my flat, when im hungover i cant face the bike ride so get the bus. My pounding head and grey face must register with my collegues but they dont comment their disapproval of my lifestyle is well documented (im 20 years younger than the next youngest member of staff).
