There is no miracle cure for hangovers

Let me state right away that I am not an expert or trained to pronounce qualified on the subject. However, I am pretty sure I have more hands-on experience drinking fully (and surviving the day after) than most doctors and others who understand what happens to the body while consuming alcohol.

Also, let me state right away that there is NO miracle cure for the hangover. At least I haven’t found it. And I’ve tried a lot.

The wise (doctors) say that the hangover is most of all about you being dehydrated. Paradoxically, when you think about the unlikely amounts of alcohol you poured into your throat last night didn’t you?

But that’s actually what doctors often say about hangovers. And I believe in them for once. My own experience shows that the only thing that helps such a hangover is to drink plenty of water. Just as if you were dehydrated. And that’s exactly what you are when you have a hangover.

Don’t Painkiller work?

Someone takes painkillers or headache pills when they have throbbing headaches after a hefty texture, but I don’t believe it works. At least it doesn’t do that for me. Some may think it works, but then it is your brain that drives you crazy. And typically you also rinse pills down with a glass of water. Tadaaaa! There you have the actual explanation for why it works.

It’s almost a waste of time and spending slit on other “medical” remedies for hangovers, so to the question of pills working against hangovers, my answer becomes a big and resounding clear: NO. Save your money and drink some water instead.

TIPS for hangovers

Now we come to the actual advice. Because there are things you can do to prevent your hangovers from getting so bad. And there are also things you can do to get up and running again as soon as possible.

Avoid getting bad hangovers

There are actually plenty of things you can do to prevent yourself from getting a bad hangover the day after a night out. Some of the advice is pretty obvious, but if you choose to follow it, it should probably work – even if it’s not always easy when you’re in a party mood.

There are 4 advice that you can follow:

  • Drink with manner. The less alcohol you drink, the better you usually have it the next day.
  • Eat before drinking alcohol
  • Drink water during the party
  • Make sure you get as much sleep as possible.

Especially the advice on getting plenty of sleep, I have started to follow more and more. And it works. There is a huge difference between leaving the party between 8 p.m. and 4 am. Your daily routine is totally destroyed – plus the longer you party the more alcohol you probably consume as well.

I have had some pretty long nights out that could easily extend into the next day, so they take a long time to recover. And it gets worse and worse with age I have heard.

So it’s a good idea to go home when the party is dying instead of ALWAYS being the last one.

When the damage has happened and you HAVE bad hangovers

If you wake up after a night where you only got a few hours of sleep, drank alcohol like a sponge sucks water and have a huge headache, here are some tips you can follow:

  • You are dehydrated so your body lacks salt and water. Eat some food, preferably regularly, and drink plenty of water. And I mean water. No soda or other fun. It doesn’t work as well.
  • If you have the opportunity, sleep as much as you can. I always find it hard to sleep after a night out, as I have such a turmoil in my body, but when you manage to sleep, you can often sleep from the worst. Otherwise, go to bed early the next night and see if you can sleep there.
  • Time heals all hangovers. Yes, the saying might have sounded like that. It takes time for your body to get rid of all that alcohol, so while it’s working on it, you actually can’t do much else than the above.
  • Laugh as you suffer. My experience is that it helps to have fun while “you suffer”. You do well with a good movie. You probably have a whole lot and otherwise you can probably find something on TV that can be used.

In short, eating regularly, drinking lots of water, getting as much sleep as possible. Doing so will work for you. And it is not a miracle cure for a hangover, but it works the best for me anyway.

What is your experience?

Now I know that I put things in the lead in this post, and I am also well aware that there are plenty of us who have at least as much experience in fighting hangovers as me. And then we probably all react differently to alcohol consumption. But if you have an attitude about this post, or some good advice against hangovers, then I’d love to hear from you.

How to keep your Drinks Cold on a Festival

Nothing better than Cold Beer!

How to keep your Drinks Cold on a Festival

How to keep your Drinks Cold on a Festival

When you are going to a festival, there are many things that you should have control over before you leave. This can include power for the mobile, proper clothing for the weather, food storage and drinks and not least the tent.

Let’s focus on possibly the most important thing at the festival, which is your drinks!

Beer, cider, soda and various bottles should preferably be kept cold over a festival. But it can be quite difficult when the refrigerator bag and freezer items have given up after the first day or two. But luckily for you, there are several ways you can cool your beverages, and we will cover them here.

Dig a hole in the ground

Here you will also need a box of flamingo or a plastic container as seen above. Make your own underground fridge just by digging a hole in the ground where you put the container. The container works perfectly as a refrigerator as there is a lot of air between its otherwise thick surfaces. This keeps the cold and ensures that the heat isn’t let in.

The Simpel version just requires a shovel, a flamingo box and a couple of strong arms to dig a sizable hole.

Use Dry ice to cold them down

You know it well. Dry ice is what looks extremely cool when you walk into the disco and have bought a tub of delicious drink for the evening. But besides the fact that dry ice looks glossy and makes you look like you’re cooking your Breezers, dry ice will cool your gracious beers to perfection.

Dry ice should preferably be stored in a box, which is typically how you receive them when you buy them. This box is made of flamingo, and this is because flamingo is the material that can withstand the fierce cool effect of dry ice.

Wet paper towel around your beer trick

It’s as simple as the others. Take a sheet, some big football socks or something completely third (preferably some cotton), wet it and wrap your alcohol in it. Then leave it in the shade and you will get some delicious cold drinks.

This is because your alcohol will not be affected by the heat (if it is a good summer day) and thus only affected by the wind. The wind and wet matter will automatically produce a lower temperature which you can advantageously utilize.

In fact, this is just about having a small bathtub and filling it with water. Don’t bathe in it, though it may seem tempting now, but just throw your drinks in it. Get your own PALM TREE OASIS PARTY COOLER here!

Here you will also be able to keep your beers cool, but not quite as cool as the other methods. At least not if the sun is bright and the basin is out in the sun all day.

Now you should have some tricks up your sleeve for the festival. So when you’re with your team, you’ve set up your base and are ready for the festivities, you can now bring some cheap plus points home with these beer cooling tricks.
