Three litres of beer, two cocktails and a few fags. Down down down. Equals a pain-stained morning of hangovers. Horrible.
By mid-morning I was aching for a hangover cure. I’ve heard it all before: Stay drunk (hair of the dog); deep-fried whatever; massive bowl of spicy whatever; a greasy lock of sausage, eggs, muffins (MacDonalds anyone?); climb into bed and hibernate. (About.com’s Urban Legends has more folk cure remedies)
They never work.
In all my years of boozing like a fish, the one hangover cure that I can rely on is exercise. I know your head’s pounding, your tongue’s all furred up, and the stomach feels like it’s on a bad acid trip.
In fact, you could just die… well, suit up and die running. Harsh words, yes, but according to Health911.com:
Exercise will help get rid of your hangover by helping the body rid itself of toxins. The increased circulation gets blood and oxygen to your oxygen-starved brain.
A good, brisk walk will also increase circulation with the results mentioned above.
And that’s good for that pain-stained morning.
