How to cure a hangover…

So you had a little too much to drink and now you need to recover? I know that feeling too well and have found a strategy that has helped me. While I’m always first to admit that I do love my Captain Morgan Spice Gold, I do hope that I’m not sounding like a bona fide alcoholic.

While the process of curing a hangover starts before you actually start drinking, I’ll skip right to the part that you want since it is now already too late for you. Hehehehe…

  1. Take a dump



  1. Drink a cup of sweet black coffee

It helps to get your blood sugar levels up since alcohol makes them take a dip. Low blood sugar levels leave you feeling tired and mad at the world.



  1. Take a shower

You probably stink from sweating on the dance floor.



  1. Have breakfast

While you should have had food before drinking to allow the alcohol to absorb slowly, it also helps to eat when you have a hangover. Blood sugar theory again.



  1. Drink loads of water

Alcohol dehydrates the body and having babalas will leave you feeling parched. Get those hydration levels up with good ol’ H2O.



  1. Exercise

I know this is asking for too much. What I do when I have a little bit of energy left is put on some music and repeat the previous night’s dance moves.


I have no idea what the science behind this process is but for some reason it works like a bomb for me when I do it in that exact order.

Next time make sure you are not drinking on an empty stomach and that you constantly drink water in between every round of drinks.
