Drinking is normal here in Singapore especially after a day’s work. There is nothing wrong if we drink and laugh with our friends or colleagues but the aftermath will be uncomfortable that we do not want to drink again. Despite the discomfort, we still drink anyway.

For those who do not want to miss the drinking for the world, there are useful hangover tips that we have to consider. Hangover is inevitable but we can lessen its effects through the following:

  • Don’t drink on an empty stomach: We know that we will drink and that is our advantage. When we know drinking is looming, we have to make sure that we eat enough. Others believe that greasy foods help prevent bad hangovers.
  • Avoid mixing drinks: Alcohols are toxins and we have to give it time to process it. If we mix beer with hard liquor, we are just hastening the absorption.

  • Drink water in between shots: Hangover is the body’s way of telling us that it needs more water. It would be useful if we drink water in between shots of liquor or beer.

 

  • Choose lighter drinks: We have to remember that darker alcohol is high in congeners. Congeners are a by-product of fermentation and are believed to be the main reason for hangover. The best and wise thing to do is to choose light colored drinks.

The things mentioned above can lessen if not avoid that dreaded hangover. We just need to follow it and not ignore it. The important thing here is we hydrate ourselves in order to hasten our recovery.
