It's the morning after my company xmas party. I need help. The culprit? A pantload of white wine. Luckily I didn't do shooters or anything stupid, or it could have been a lot worse.

Here's the symptoms: a rather localised headache, around the front of the head, feels like a Star Trek 'Geordi LaForge' headband is gripping me tight around the forehead there.

Bit of a sore throat from the cigarettes, and a general body buzz that I assume will just turn to fatigue in a few hours.

Is there a doctor in the house?

I've heard that you should drink quite a bit of water, because part of a hangover is due to dehydration. Not a quick fix by any means, but oh well.....(my 2 cents, and that's probably all it's worth!).

yeh, gatorade can't hurt.

good luck, j$

ADDENDUM

stay away from some pain relievers - I believe that Allieve and a handful of others will blitz your liver if you take them with high alcohol content in your bloodstream... i'm sure someone else out there has mo info...

Have a fried breakfast followed by a couple of beers at lunchtime. (Or even better - Bloody Marys)

NB *This may not be the healthiest option*

I totally agree with Trader Woody. A cooked breakfast and hair of the dog always works a treat. And it's the most civilised cure to a hangover.

I read somewhere to stay away from caffine, no coffee or tea (unless herbal) it just dehydrates you more. I have also heard that if you eat something sweet before and after you drink that there is something about the sugar that helps fight hangovers. I hope you feel better soon

The plop plop fizz fizz stuff helps alot. Also pedialyte from a drug store in the baby food section, this stuff replenishes your electrolites.

If you don't sober up, you don't get a hangover...

There IS a doctor in the house...somewhere.
Where's the Z cure?
Hello, Dr. Z, you have a patient?

I think If I had a choice I would go with the Trader Woody solution, being of British background myself. However, I have just been informed that I have to sit through a casting call of about 100 actors for the afternoon. I don't think watching bad Pacino imitations will be helpful for my situation. If it weren'f for that, popping over to the local irish pub for a pint and some fries would be just the thing!

My only solace is that there are a lot of people around me in worse shape than I am!

As sad and pathetic as it may be, my pre-married life could have been inspiration for a "Bridget Jones goes to Canada" novel.

Thnakfully, I no longer get drunk, eat takeout, and sing along to sappy movies in my pyjamas anymore. Well, I do, but nw I have a husband to watch me do it.

Kon-Hemsby, what is 'Resolve'?

I have not heard of this magic elixir.

Man, makes me glad government is too cheap to spring for an X-mas party...

(I guess I'll be forced to do it on my own)
