Tips for Partying Without a Hangover
– Before the party: prepare your body
– During the party: learning to control your drinking
– After the night: surviving the hangover
Who hasn’t had a hangover after a night of drinking? Our tip looks at all the little things you can change to avoid painful aftermath.
Before the party: prepare your body
A few precautions before you drink can help prevent these symptoms:
– Eat before you go to the party: drinking on an empty stomach promises nasty migraines and an increased risk of vomiting.
– Eat foods rich in fat (fatty acids will slow down the absorption of alcohol in the body).
During the evening: learn to control your consumption
Throughout the evening, you can also pay attention to a few things that will save you the next day:
– Avoid mixed drinks, carbonated alcoholic beverages, or those containing soda, which get you drunk faster.
– Space out your drinks and avoid binge drinking, which is consuming a large amount of alcohol in a brief period.
– Feed yourself, but be careful not to overeat salt: salt consumption can increase dehydration.
– Drink water! We recommend a glass of water after a glass of alcohol to avoid dehydration. Continuously alternate the two, and the evening will be even more successful!
After the night: to survive the hangover
Have you been drinking, and are you feeling bad the next day?
A hangover is the onset of symptoms after excessive alcohol consumption. According to scientists, it occurs after consuming more than 1.5g of alcohol/kg.
Hangover: cause and symptoms
The symptoms felt by the individual the day after a drunken party are pretty unpleasant:
– headaches, i.e., headaches;
– vomiting, nausea;
– tremors, etc.
These symptoms are due to the elimination of alcohol by the liver:
– This elimination leads to synthesizing a substance: acetaldehyde which would be the origin of these symptoms.
– It is then transformed into acetate by the liver and eliminated.
The aftermath of a party is therefore much less agitated and more complicated when a hangover occurs. Fortunately, various solutions exist to make the pill pass and fight against these inconveniences.
6 solutions to put into practice against hangovers
Here are some practical tips to fight a hangover:
– Avoid consuming alcohol again immediately! Some people say that the best way to get over a hangover is to drink a little beer to get over it… but that’s a bit of a stretch!
– Take an anti-emetic to fight nausea and vomiting.
During the day
– Drink regularly within a day of drinking alcohol, as drinking alcohol significantly dehydrates the body:
◦ non-acidic juice such as gazpacho;
◦ herbal teas.
– Eat light, i.e., foods low in:
◦ salt, as salt consumption majors dehydration;
◦ fats and sugars to facilitate the work of the liver.
Good to know: eating an egg with toast, honey, or maple syrup on toast or even a vegetable broth is ideal after a hangover.
Finally, be patient because time is your ally:
– Your blood alcohol level will gradually decrease, about 0.15 mg/L per hour, due to the elimination of alcohol by the liver.
– Depending on the initial dose you have consumed, it will take you more or less time to recover from your hangover.
