This is for that friend of yours who says having another drink will cure your hangover
"Sure we'll go for the cure."
You're sprawled across your bed, your head is pounding, your mouth is as dry as a desert, and your wallet is empty.
You're experiencing what's scientifically* known as "The aftermath of an Irish person's night out."
What happens next though? You lay there and don't move? You get a breakfast roll? or you listen to your friend who suggests,"let's go to the pub for the cure?"
If your preference is the latter then don't do it because there's really no such thing as "the cure."
A drink the following will actually add to the toxins to your already beaten-up body and prolong your hangover.
The only way to get over a hangover is to give it time. Yes, good old-fashioned time.
Your body takes roughly one hour to get rid of one standard drink which is the equivalent of half a pint, a shot or a small glass of wine.
So next time "the hair of the dog" is brought up the morning after the night before, shoot down the idea, drink some water and let your body work it out of your system.
