Weddings make for a great excuse to get drunk. After all, who says no to free ki daaru? If you are anything like the average human being, chances of you suffering from a massive hangover are ‘high’.
You don’t want your mum to shout at you for those puffy eyes, do you? You definitely don’t want a splitting headache while some or the other ritual is going on! Then my child, you have arrived to the right place. Scroll down to read some tried and tested methods to cure that hangover ASAP!
1. Hearty Breakfast
Eating a hearty breakfast the morning after drinking is one of the most common remedies. Breakfast helps you to maintain your blood sugar and negating the side effects of a hangover. Shaadi hai, you’ll definitely get to gorge on some delicious breakfast!
2. Fatty Food to the Rescue!
Grease and carbohydrates is a killer combination. What, don’t make a face! In more sophisticated words, gulp down those pizzas, burgers and other fried food before or while drinking. It will grease the intestines making it harder for them to absorb the alcohol.
3. Sip on those Electrolytes
Swearing about never drinking won’t help, but electrolytes definitely will. Sip on some lemon water or coconut water throughout the day. It replaces the sodium that you have lost the previous night, thus effectively helping in fighting the hangover.
4. Tomato Juice
What? You can gulp down Bloody Mary(s) but not some plain old tomato juice? Tomato juice is a complex combination of electrolytes and carbs. Drink up!
5. Bananas and Honey
Banana is an excellent source of potassium, vitamin B6 and C. You lose potassium through excessive sweat and pee. Thanks to those 8 shots of tequila, you’ll be eating bananas drizzled with honey like a baby!
6. Stay Hydrated
Listen to your mum when she asks you to drink 6 litres of water everyday. Don’t you realise, she is preparing you for the string of hangovers to come your way once you hit your 20’s? Jokes apart, it is necessary to stay hydrated during and after drinking. Alcohol causes dehydration which further deteriorates your condition. Water is your best friend, buddy!
7. Hangover Pill
Many chemists sell specific pills that combat alcohol and let you have a hangover free day. These pills are supposed to be consumed before drinking.
