How to avoid and relieve it

If yow wake up to dizziness, headache, nausea, dry mouth and fatigue, after a night of some alcohol binging, you are definitely hangover. Here are a few tricks to relieve the discomfort

Water
Drink water throughout the night. Begin the night with a big glass of water. Staying hydrated is a great way to prevent a hangover. Alternate between one alcoholic beverage and one glass of water. Before you go to bed, drink two or three glasses of water.

Eat before, during, and after you drink alcohol. Eating will keep your sugar levels up which is an important part of preventing a hangover. Drinking on an empty stomach is both a ticket to a cheap drunk and a wild hangover. Eat foods that will absorb some of the alcohol you drink.

Snacking throughout the night, while sometimes deemed ‘giving in to the drunchies’, will lessen the hangover you feel the next day.

Greasy Food. What you eat after drinking doesn’t matter—it’s what you eat before all those Jagerbombs that can help lessen the pain the next day. Food helps slow the absorption of alcohol, and the longer it takes the alcohol to reach your blood stream, the longer it is until you become intoxicated.

Minimize how much you drink. If you want to let loose a bit, drink until you’re buzzed but then stop. It’s best to quit while you’re ahead in this situation. Your future self will thank you. To avoid over-drinking, stick with beer or wine. Mixed drinks, especially ones you buy at a bar, can have more alcohol in them than you think.

Avoid sugary mixed drinks. Drinking drinks with too much sugar will inevitably lead to a hangover. Avoid drinks that are made with store-bought mixes, like sweet-and-sour mix, that are high in corn syrup. Also be aware that a lot of wines (particularly sparkling wines) are high in sugar.

Take Vitamin B before you go to bed. As stated in the vitamins section, vitamin B is a great way to combat hangovers. Get a head start on the battle by taking vitamin B before you go to bed. Take it with a glass of water.

The Best Cure: Prevention
You’re a grown man, you know to drink responsibly. But just in case you forgot: Limit your drinks to about one every hour. Your body metabolizes each beer (or wine or shot) in about 60 to 75 minutes, Dr. Hall-Flavin says. Drink faster, and your blood alcohol level rises faster. Eat before you drink and follow Dr. Hall-Flavin’s “I’ll have a beer and a glass of water” rule when ordering—and drink the water, don’t let it just sit on the table.
