Many Hangover 'Cures' Are Merely Myths
Hangovers are hard. We're here to make sure you don't waste your time by doing these things.By Katie Link | January 1, 2016
Turns out these rituals you practice after every big bash don't actually work. Sorry.
Myth #1: Drinking a mimosa, screwdriver or bloody mary the next morning helps take the edge off. Unfortunately, that's not the case. Drinking more will just delay your hangover from setting in. Hangover symptoms are at their worst when your blood alcohol level reaches zero. And eventually, friends, you will get there, and it will hurt.
Myth #2: Eating some bread, or everything in your pantry, before bed will help soak up the alcohol. Nope. You need to already have food in your stomach prior to drinking alcohol if you want any hopes of feeling better the next day. It's all about digestion and how quickly the alcohol hits your bloodstream.
