He said in effect 'There is no cure for a hangover', but offered a few tips for things that may make it less severe. One is 'whether you want to or not drink about a pint of water before passing out; it will help against the dehydration.' Another was 'That old hair-of-the-dog thing does work for extreme overindulgence, because after a while your liver gets fed up with working at full revs and slows down while you still have alcohol in the system; giving it a very small amount of fresh alcohol kicks it back to work by making it start all over again.' And a third was 'for breakfast, marmite and brown toast washed down with orange juice helps a bit, because it contains the right vitimins. You'll still feel godawful, but you probably won't be sick.'There was a lot of other very complicated stuff about metabolic rates and whatall else, but those three things might be some use to someone somewhere some time. :-) Thu 01 Jan 2009 13:14:53 GMT+1 radiantStan-ley http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2009/01/happy_new_year_2.shtml?page=50#comment6 Happy New Year everyone. There are some plusses for not celebrating N.Y. When you arise everyone elses curtains are still drawn and you have no regrets about the excesses of the night before. However, it would have been preferable to being in bed with 'flu. Still there's always next year - God willing.
