The Hangover Chronicles – XI – The preemptive failure

A common hangover remedy is to hit the Hangover before it has a chance to get going.  This week we wanted to try the Advil before going to bed and see if it helps offset a major hangover.  That being said, not every weekend will be a successful attempt at curing your hangover, it just comes with the territory when your drinking with friends and quite frankly, when your really drunk.  That doesn’t mean I don’t want to share with everyone Saturday’s attempt, and the effort of getting a hangover for Sunday morning.

A planned trip to Williamsburg, VA for a Busch Gardens day of drinking was delayed due to heavy rain.  Did this stop us from drinking? Oh no…

A bar named “Pitchers” lived up to their name, as we downed a few and then headed to Sunny Busch Gardens.  A few rollercoaster rides and a few beers and I could feel the Budweiser pounding my head. I knew this would be a hell of a hangover the next day if I continued to drink like I did.  My headache was throbbing as I continued to drink and  after Busch Gardens not only was I already feeling beyond drunk, I was feeling the beginning of the Budweiser Hangover Headache setting in.  Time for the Hanover remedy right?  An 800 mg Advil and a glass of water.

I wish that was it for the rest of my night, as I for some reason started to feel great again and we went back to “Pitchers” and continued drinking more.  I’m not really sure how much more I drank but I am glad I took the Advil because it cured the Headache almost right away.

Results: Although the Advil cured the headache that night, I continued to drink and therefore I’m not sure if this test should count for a hangover remedy.  I do know this, it allowed me to continue drinking and hanging out until I ended up like this:

  1. Yeah. Excedrin works like a champ too. It’s not good to take a lot of it though because it thins your blood. I wouldn’t recommend taking any pills before or while drinking. Excedrin has taken away tons of hangover headaches the morning after drinking.
