    Greetings ladies and gentlemen.

    I was checking my e-mails on Yahoo and fell on that article on the main page... The fact that it was posted before the 4th of july is a good thing for the Yankees amongst us, but as it was advertised as a cure for the morning after Canada Day makes me feel a little stupid for the publisher... As on the morning of July 2nd, the drunkards will be too hammered to be able to read !

    Anyway, here it is...

    Eh Maestro, what you doing reading the womens health pages?? ;)

    They don't mention the best cure, a big greasy Irish breakfast, half the farmyard fried up and put on a plate, washed down with lots of hot sweet tea. Hangover? What hangover??!!

    Are you supposed to eat that Greasy Irish Breakfast before or after your over indulgeance?

    Best cure is to not get drunk;)

    The wisdom in this becomes more apparent the older I get, Snort.

    I hear ya, last time I was good and drunk it took nearly 3 days to recover and feel well again. I decided right then and there not to consume alchohol in great quantities again.

    So...I'm in my twenties and I've never been drunk. I'm suspecting that this makes me some strange mutant form of human. :)

    Just been too busy with adventures and hobbies. I'd rather get out and live life and make memories than forget them. :)

    *Buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuurp !* ;)

    I once was told that the best cure to a hangover was a big greasy poutine (you know, that meal composed of French fries mixed with cheese and covered of brown sauce). Although I never tried it. Never got drunk neighter... Don't like the taste of alcohol. The only way you can make me swallow alcohol is to mix it (i.e. Vodka) with something else (i.e. cranberry juice).

    Best cure for a hangover? In order efficacy

    1) Exercise. Preferably sex. Often.

    2) Drink lots of water.

    3) Eat a healthy breakfast, and when all else fails;

    4) Drink a few beers to take the edge off.

    I found the way to prevent hangovers altogether, and haven't had one in over 11 years. I don't drink.

    I am a recovered alcoholic. I know what my problem is; once I start, I don't stop. So if I don't have the first one, I don't have to worry. It's been working for over 11 years now and I have to say my life has not been better. Not that I have a problem with other people drinking. I envy the guys that can have a beer, or two beers.

    I had an uncle who was an alcoholic. He was never able to give it up. :(

    Congratulations on your 11 years of sobriety.
    May it continue unabated.
