We've all drank too much on at least one occasion and been sick as kid locked in a candy store for two days!

All the lucky charms in Ireland can't save you from a hangover, but I have tracked down a few things you can do to avoid one.

  1. The best way to keep down your cornbeef and cabbage and avoid a headache is to stay hydrated.
  2. Alternating drinking non-alcoholic beverage with your alcoholic choices.
  3. You should also lay off the green beer, because clear types of alcohol tend to cause fewer hangovers.

And things you can do to cure one:

  1. Make a banana milkshake with honey. The banana calms your stomach and the honey will counteract the effects of alcohol and rebuilds sugar levels.
  2. Other foods that will help include B-vitamins, black coffee with lemon, apples, and chicken soup.
  3. Sleep. Rest is your best friend at this point.
  4. Replenish your fluids with fruit or vegetable juice and water.
  5. Eat mineral and protein rich food, even if you don't feel like it.
  6. In Poland, drinking pickle juice is a common remedy.
  7. The popular phrase “hair of the dog that bit you” may sound logical, but it’s only temporary instead try a Bloody Mary. While your blood is dealing with the new alcohol it is ignoring the old and in the mean time tomato juice and celery are full of replenishing vitamins.

In Ireland it was said that the cure for a hangover is to bury the ailing person up to the neck in moist river sand, I don't recommend that, but maybe watching this video will help:
