True hang over (hangover) remedy

I'd like to hear the best pre and post party remedy.

When I was younger the solution was as much water as I could drink before I went to bed but now that doesn't seem to work as well.

    1. You need to drink the water the entire time you are drinking, not just a bunch before you go to bed.

        Plus a cheeseburger or Sausage McMuffin the next "morning" won't hurt either.

      2. Post Remedy......

        Gatorade.....eggs or a bagel when you wake up. A steam bath if available.

        1. - Drink lots of water during

          - Eat something starchy with your drinks - pasta, rice, potatoes

          - And for the day after, few things have worked better for me than a sugar free Red Bull (Vit. B) and 2 or 3 ibuprofen tablets

          1. You could go a little easier on the booze. Seems to work for me.

              When pframpton said *party*, I think he meant it as a verb.
