Thanksgiving is the perfect time to eat, drink, and be merry. Between the great food, great company, football games, and the alcoholic drinks, thanksgiving can be a lot of fun. Unfortunately, sometimes this means the morning after Thanksgiving can be a little rough.

So how do you cure that Thanksgiving hangover?

Well, despite what you may have heard, there is no miracle cure for a hangover. Greasy food, coffee, and a cold shower will not do a thing to cure that post-Thanksgiving hangover. There are, however, ways in which you can Prevent a Hangover!

Tips for Preventing Hangovers

  1. Stay Hydrated: One of the best things you can do is to stay hydrated. Drink plenty of water this Thanksgiving in between those beers or glasses of wine.
  2. Don’t Drink on an Empty Stomach: This one shouldn’t be a problem on Thanksgiving, but if you want to avoid a hangover, make sure you eat fat-containing foods and foods with high carbohydrate content before drinking. These foods slow the absorption of alcohol in the stomach.
  3. Avoid Sugars: Unlike the above foods, sugars actually help increase the absorption of alcohol in the stomach.
  4. Take your Time: Thanksgiving is an all-day event. Take your time and don’t drink too much too fast.
Most importantly, drink responsibly and stay safe!
