So being a student i have had my fair share of unfortunate hangovers! This is completely normal for many students, especially first years, as going to clubs is a great way to socialize and meet new people. Of course not everyone gets drunk when they go out and you don’t have to! But for those who do here are some ways that i try and cope with the morning after!
Drink lots and lots and lots of water!!!
A pint of water is advised as soon as you get back home. One of the main reasons for a hangover is that alcohol dehydrates you. It’s important to get yourself re-hydrated to get rid of that headache and dizzy feeling!!
Eat food such as chips or a burger before you go to sleep.
This doesn’t work for everyone, but i find that it stops me feeling so sick when i wake up.
Eat fruit, such as oranges, or anything rich in vitamin C.
This will further help with dehydration and also make you feel generally less ill and yucky.
Stay in bed and watch films (such as Harry Potter because that’s awesome).
Not only will some bed rest do you good but it’s a great distraction from the fact that you feel pretty rubbish.
All in all its best not to over do it on the drinking front for the sake of your organs and general well being but, for those times that you do go overboard, these are some things that work for me. The main thing to remember is that as long as you have good people around you, you’ll have a good time regardless. But they can also be there to share your pain of the dreaded hangover!
