How To Prevent Hangovers
Six steps to avoid a hangover
Pint 1: Relaxation
Its effect on youThe first drink of your session will help to reduce social anxiety, says Sally Austen, mental health and addiction expert.
What theyre sayingGood to see you, mate!
Your actionEat some nuts. The carbs slow absorption of alcohol while fats slow the peristalsis process, keeping alcohol in your stomach longer, says clinical nutritionist Sharon Rolfes. Avoid salted though theyll make you thirstier.
Pint 2: Disinhibition
Its effect on youYour decision making is already impaired, says Austen, but the alcohol can make you more socially skilled, warming to other people and their needs.
What theyre sayingAnother pint for my old mucker, good man!
Your actionStart counting units. TheDrinkTracker Breathalyserapp compares intake and metabolic rate to help pace your drinking.
Pint 3: Bliss
Its effect on youYoull feel good, says Dilwyn Marple-Horvat. But alcohol is like noise in the brain, confusing signals. Its harder to focus, but the stimulant effect is still rising.
What theyre sayingYou know youre my best friend, dont you?
Your actionOrder a mid-round orange juice and lemonade, says Austen. Itll keep blood sugar levels high during the session, reducing your hangover.
Pint 4: Puzzlement
Its effect on youYou feel euphoric and socially confident, but to an observer you look drunk. This is the turning point, says Austen.
What theyre sayingNever mind the rent. Can I start a tab, barkeep?
Your actionAvoid excitement. Adrenaline when youre impaired by alcohol is disastrous. You have energy, but no ability, says Austen. The time for dancing on tables has passed.
Pint 5: Turmoil
Its effect on youSleepiness and aggression, says professor of neuroscience Marple-Hor vat. Plus poor co-ordination and focus.
What theyre sayingWho knocked that table over?
Your actionResearch by Elizabeth Kovacs of Loyola University, US found your immune system is six times weaker after large amounts of alcohol. Get extra zinc by scoffing a bar of dark chocolate (try Green & Blacks, £1.76 fromVit-Shop.co.uk).
Pint 6: Oblivion
Its effect on youIf you nurse this one until kicking out time, youll have alcohol in your blood in the morning.
What theyre sayingOn to a club?
Your actionGet home. The Neuropsychiatry Research Center found reaction times are seriously slower when youre this drunk. Dont move on.
