There are a few methods to reduce the symptoms of a hangover.

Hangovers don't just happen like a headache, an ingrown toenail, or cancer. Looking for a cure for a hangover is largely too late. Prevention is the key but there are a few things that can be done to help get through the day after drinking too heavily.

Step 1: Prevention

One of the best things to do before drinking is to eat a hearty meal. If you can't do that gobble down the peanuts, popcorn, or whatever other food is available where you are drinking. Drinking on an empty stomach is unwise.

Drink water
Downing a quart of water before the first drink will give your body the fluid it needs and help divert the absorption of the alcohol into your system.

<p>My husband has been suffering from thyroid cancer which was confirmed to be stage four, the doctor told me there was little he could do since he wasn&rsquo;t responding to treatment but a friend of mine came to our rescue by ordering this cannabis oil from dr godspower which he said has been helping some patient fight against cancer of various types so we decided to give it a chance, so far my husband is improving perfectly very well and presently he can walk around the house all by himself. I felt its necessary i let others who are suffering from this acute disease that once you have a good cannabis oil from dr godspower, it can really give one a sound second chance of living. by chance if you happen to be in need of this cannabis oil you have to contact dr godspower who supplied I and my husband with his email: ozalogboshrine@gmail.com</p>
<p>My name is Jorge Katie, am from Rockford Illinois, united state, Herpes has been ongoing in my family for long, I lost both parents to Herpes and it is so much pain because i contacted the disease too. i have not been able to get over it.As we all know medically,there is no solution or cure. Until the day i meant a comment on the daily news paper that was commented by a lady Brenda about how this powerful doctor who helped her got cured of the disease (Herpes) my fellow beloved i firstly taught, having a help from an African doctor was a wrong idea, but i thought of these &quot;will i continue to stress on these disease all day when i have someone to help me save my life?&quot; so i gather all my faiths and interest to contact him through his Email address at (drabassherbalhome@gmail.com), so after i have mailed him of helping get my disease cured and told me about my Tests and Results and also told him that i had spent thousands of dollars on medication. He responded to me so fast that i should not be afraid, that he is a truthful and powerful doctor.To cut the story short,He gave me some medical herbs and he thought me how am going to use them and gave me his word.At first i was skeptical about taking his medical herbs but i just gave it a try. I was on his medication for 25days when i notice some changes in my body. After the 25th day i called him and he said he has been expecting my call,he told me to visit my doctor for another test..Honestly speaking,i never believed all he was saying until after the test when my doctor mention the statement that i am Herpes negative and the doctor started asking me how did i do it, My papers for the checkups i did are with me and now i am happy and glad for his miraculous help, With these i must tell everyone who might seek for any help, either for ( Herpes) much more to contact him through his Email; drabassherbalhome@gmail.com or whatsapp him on +2347059008401, sir thank you so much for your immediate cure of my disease, i must say a big thanks for curing my disease, i owe you in return</p>

<p><br>I am Thibaut louis,I want to say thank to Dr Agumagu for everything he did in my life. To everyone who doesn't believe in spell, I was one like you at first. I wasn't quite sure if I wanted to do this since I've tried others so-called spells casters and they did not work and was a waste of my time and money. However, when I read so many testimonials of Dr Agumagu how he help people to get back their ex lover. Dr Agumagu answered all my questions and was very nice about everything, I decided to give it a try. I figured it would be my last try to get my ex girlfriend back. So my story is that I was at my office when the girl I suppose to marry told me that she wasn't in love with me and never will it be and that she didn't want to speak or see me again, especially since she was talking to this other guy. i email Dr Agumagu and tell him everything.he let me know which spells would be most appropriate for me and I chose the one that was to get her back to me and stay with me and to marry me.As soon as he finish the spells, my girlfriend came back into my life! It was a miracle to me and I&rsquo;m so thankful to him, that is why i am sharing this testimony to those who need his help. Things have been going well, and pretty much according to what Dr Agumagu said would happen. I&rsquo;m very happy for the love spell Dr Agumagu have done for me, my ex girlfriend is now back to me and we are living so happy. if you asked me or my friends if I would have anticipated how things were right now&hellip;no one would believe it! contact him is email address (agumaguspelltemple@outlook.com or agumaguspelltemple@gmail.com tell +2348158847627) and here is my private email bouchardemil@gmail.com. Thibaut louis</p>

thats bull i've been smoking pot for 4 years and it is not bad i've done my homework weed is scientifically proven 10 times less dangerous than tobacco on a scale of 1 to 10 and it does not cause black lung or cancer and there are 0 marijuana related deaths in the united states <br>
Check your sources, friend, since my medical acquaintances all agree that weed is far more dangerous than tobacco, presenting an <em>increased</em> risk of cancer, since the smoke is inhaled more deeply and retains for longer than with normal smoking, plus the well-documented mental damage.
When you come to France I'll take you to a hospital ward where they treat alcoholics : you'll see what mental damages are done&hellip;&nbsp;no need for heavy medical documentation, let me tell you.<br>Wrecks, all I can say.<br>The only thing close to damage by alcoholism is heroin.<br>Both are certainly the most dangerous drugs available (wether it's legal or not).<br>Interestingly a lot of (most ?&hellip;) heroin addicts when they survive fall into alcohol addiction after they quit heroin&hellip;&nbsp;And they usually die from the effect of both over the years &hellip; mostly between35 and 45-50.<br><br>As for balancing between the effects of nicotine and THC I'm quite surprised about what you say. It is a well known fact that THC does not causes cancer whereas nicotine is the primary cause of throat and lung cancer (how much you inhale is ludicrous as many permanent non smokers died of tobacco induced lung cancer simply by living in places where cigarette smoking was prevalent).<br>Now I do not mean THC has no bad effect on health, but as long as weed is not mixed with tobacco there is no proof yet that THC causes cancer.<br><br>Anyway all these arguments seem quite absurd to me : if you want to live a healthy life and respect yourself as you should respect others, do not get over the barrier of non self-control, be it alcohol, weed or any other recreational drugs &hellip;&nbsp;<br>Knowing which one is less harmful than the other misses the point : the point is in words &quot;less harmful&quot; / &quot;harmless&quot; there is &quot;harm&quot;. This should be avoided altogether.
Where did I say alcohol was safe?<br><br>Where did I say pure THC causes cancer? <br><br>Stop putting words and arguments in my mouth, it is disingenuous.<br><br>And, news flash, pure nicotine does not cause cancer either - both marijuana and tobacco contain many other substances, many of which are highly carcinogenic. Causing any complex organic substance to smoulder for prolonged periods generates dozens, often hundreds, of carcinogenic toxins.<br><br>THC and nicotine are just the single substance that produces the desired effects, amongst the hundreds of substances that have only UNdesirable effects.
<p>The many other substances seemed not to cause irritation of the lungs as tobacco does. Many think the complete plant causes this, not the peices alone.</p>
<p>It doesn't matter how many people &quot;think&quot; something, what matters are the properly-collected and collated facts.</p><p>Try these from the CDC: </p><p><a href="http://www.cdc.gov/tobacco/data_statistics/sgr/2010/consumer_booklet/chemicals_smoke/" rel="nofollow">http://www.cdc.gov/tobacco/data_statistics/sgr/201...</a></p>
<br>a bolus of pure nicotine extracted from a pack of cigarettes would almost certainly kill you - and quickly. <br><br>the LD 50 of nicotine is about 100 times higher than that of cocaine, for example.<br><br>the human ld50 of nicotine is .5 - 1 mg/kg.<br><br>Pure nicotine almost certainly is a carcinogen - but there just isn't enough data to support that in humans due to the fact that its toxicity is so high. At the very least it is definitely highly mitogenic &amp; I can tell you that they have validated tumours in lab animals AND they have shown that it stimulates rapid division of pancreatic cells. <br><br>and that's real sources, not &quot;my medical acquaintances&quot;<br><br>by why take my word for it? just pop over to pubmed and search for marijuana and cancer.<br><br>despite the fact that NIH simply will not fund research exploring potential positive effects of marijuana bur rather will only entertain grants that are written in order to explore the negative effects, you will see an overwhelming amount data that suggest that not only is marijuana far less toxic than most prescription and recreational drugs, it is effective in treating a host of diseases and disorders ranging from anxiety to end-stage cancer.<br><br>i am by no means saying that people should smoke marijuana recreationally, but there is no medical basis whatsoever for keeping the drug on the list of Schedule 1 drugs. <br><br>
whoops - i misspoke - what i meant to say was that LD50 of nicotine SUGGEST THAT it is about 100 times more lethal than cocaine, which has an ld50 of about 100 mg/kg.<br><br>in other words - you would need to give a group of people 100 - 200 times the amount of cocaine you would need to kill half of them if you used pure nicotine.<br><br>drug laws in this country aren't so much about safety as they are about lobbying.<br><br>also, to be clear - the LD50 obviously isn't that useful of a tool when determining drug safety. Obviously cocaine is one of the worst things you can put in your body - probably far worse for you than nicotine when looking at their relative dosages and administration routes. however the point stands that nicotine is a HIGHLY toxic substance - and it's not just the various tars and god only knows what other compounds they are putting in cigarettes that kill you.
<br>exactly. an strangely enough - alcohol is the only drug that i know of whose withdrawal symptoms can kill you. narcotics are close if you're not careful to stay hydrated during the invariable diarrhea that comes with coming off opiates.<br><br>another thing about Heroin that is crazy is the fact that pharmacologically it's just morphine.<br><br>heroin has acetyl groups that make it much more soluble than morphine so when it is injected it is more potent than morhpine because it gets to the brain faster - however once in the brain those acetyl groups are cleaved and the it is converted to morphine...<br><br><br>
i'm a physician and that is nonsense.
What data do you possess that the rest of the medical profession do not?
none - i have the same resources they have and the same resources you have at your disposal by way of google. i pointed you in the right direction in another post - you are free to go look for yourself.<br><br>I am by no means suggesting that smoking marijuana is a good idea. It certainly leads to inflammation in the lungs which can in tern lead to cell damage and what we call &quot;pre-cancerous&quot; cells in lung tissues.<br><br>Smoking marijuana has certainly been linked to higher levels of testicular cancer, prostate cancer and cervical cancer in regular pot smokers than non smokers. it has also been linked to complications for women who smoke during pregnancy.<br><br>That being said, while this issue is debated, the medical community certainly does not agree that &quot;weed is far more dangerous than tobacco, presenting an increased risk of cancer&quot;<br><br>I believe it's quite the opposite. <br>It is difficult to really study this as long-term studies just aren't being done on any real level. partly due to the legal and political debate.<br><br>but what we do know for sure is that marijuana certainly has some therapeutic uses. nicotine, with the exception of a few very rare cases, has no therapeutic value - even less so when smoked.<br>marijuana is nowhere near as addictive.<br><br>there is so much nonsense in the media about marijuana it's mind-boggling. my favourite is the study that came out of new zealand that apparently claimed smoking 1 joint was the same as smoking 20 cigarettes, which was of course not at all what the study claimed. the press went bonkers and that is the source of most of these kinds of claims you hear today. although - read the paper for yourself:<br>http://erj.ersjournals.com/content/31/2/280.full<br><br>They looked at 79 people with lung cancer and 324 controls.<br>Of those 79 people with cancer, 9 of them didn't smoke cigarettes.<br>9.<br><br>58 of them never smoked marijuana with 3, 4 and 14 being in their three categories of increasing amounts smoked respectively.<br><br><br>&quot;While cannabis smoking (defined as lifetime use of o20 joints)<br>was not associated with a significantly increased risk of lung<br>cancer (table 2), those with the highest tertile of use<br>(.10.5 joint-yrs of exposure) had a significantly increased risk<br>(RR 5.7 (95% CI 1.5&ndash;21.6)) after adjustment for age, sex,<br>ethnicity, pack-yrs of cigarette smoking and a family history of<br>lung cancer.&quot;<br><br>However - in their control group they had 4 &quot;highest tertile of use&quot; patients vs 14 in the cancer group. <br><br>Contrast that with what i think is a far superior study (and the community would agree based on the impact scores of the two journals) done at UCLA:<br>http://www.cmaj.ca/content/180/8/797.long<br><br>and you'll see a far different story.<br>that's not to say smoking pot is good for you - it almost certainly contributes to COPD in people that smoke tobacco (although surprisingly doesn't appear to lead to COPD on its own) <br><br>Tashkin's even hypothesized that marijuana would raise the risk of cancer because of the fact that marijuana users inhale more deeply and generally hold smoke in their lungs longer than tobacco smokers, like you said. However that simply didn't appear to be the case in his study which included almost 10 times as many subjects as the New Zealand study.<br><br>While no association between marijuana smoking and cancer was found they absolutely did find a 20-fold increase in lung cancer among people who smoked two or more packs of cigarettes a day. <br><br>Of course you probably shouldn't do either - but cigarette smoking is almost certainly far worse for your general health and well being than smoking marijuana is.<br><br>
Your CMAJ reference is nothing to do with cancer.<br><br>However, it's summary does state that smoking marijuana poses similar risks to smoking regarding heart disease and pulmonary obstructions, and further states that the risks are greatly increased in those who smoke both marijuana and tobacco.<br><br>Your first reference seems to be double-thinking itself - first stating that there is no significant risk, then pointing out that long-term smoking of cannabis <em>is</em> a significant risk, and also pointed out that 1 in 20 lung cancers in the under-55 age-group in New Zealand (ie, those too young to have developed the disease from general exposure to pollution) is due to cannabis use.<br><br><br>
dig those heels in mate... you said it's far more dangerous and poses a greater cancer risk than tobacco. i think both of those claims are false. and considering the fact that COPD is both dangerous and a risk factor in developing lung-cancer, i would say that the CMAJ reference has everything to do with the dangers of smoking tobacco v marijuana - i wouldn't say the reference is unrelated at all.<br><br>the NZ paper isn't double-thinking itself - they presented the data they found. that's how science is done.<br><br>the aim of the study was to determine the risk of lung cancer associated<br>with cannabis smoking. one of their findings was that people that smoked less were not at a risk of contracting the disease.<br><br>they seemed to have based their conclusions on the higher groups - which, while apparently significant - i find those data dubious at best, based on the lack of power.<br><br>Either way, i maintain that your claim that weed is far more dangerous than tobacco, presenting an increased risk of cancer is not based on fact.<br><br>Sounds to me like you're biased.<br><br>I personally have no horse in this race - i don't smoke either so i don't really care. politically i don't believe the government should be regulating behaviours beyond protecting the rights of others - it's absurd to me that pot is illegal while far more dangerous drugs like tobacco and alcohol are perfectly legal. <br><br>
How is &quot;there is no significant risk of cancer&quot; and &quot;there is a significant risk of cancer&quot; in the same paragraph not doublethink?
<br>the greater-than symbol didn't carry over so maybe that's the source of the confusion. they had 4 groups - non smokers, less than 1.39 joints/year, between 1.39 and 10.5 and greater than 10.5/year.<br><br>they are claiming that people who have smoked the greatest amount of marijuana (the highest group) have a significantly increased risk of lung cancer.<br><br>but their sample size was 18 people. 14 of which had cancer, 4 didn't. and many of the marijuana smokers were also cigarette smokers.<br><br>as it were i think the claim is dubious based on their own data. but this is the paper that was all over over the place and is the source of the &quot;1 joint = 20 cigarettes&quot; myth and that's why i brought it up.<br><br>feel free to provide a better one that you feel more adequately supports your claim that &quot;weed is far more dangerous than tobacco, presenting an increased risk of cancer&quot;
Well, you just go right on praising the virtues of pot for the next two years and see how getting a job or a good education works out for you. <br><br>Drinking water is 10 times less dangerous than smoking pot.<br><br>I've not been smoking pot for 37 years and I've done my homework and weed is scientifically proven to have carcinogens, induce laziness, and has ruined a few of my friend's chances at a decent wage, extended (by years and tens of thousands of dollars) the time it took to get a degree, and wasted thousands of hours arguing for the legalization of something that will never be legalized.
You, my friend, are ridiculous. Not only does cannabis NOT cause cancer, but it's also been known to shrink tumors. Although it temporarily paralyzes the cilia, it actually does not cause permanent damage. In addition, it's also been found to actually prevent respiratory tissue from becoming malignant. In other words, it prevents cancer. Also, cannabis use does NOT make you stupid. When they did the study to prove that marijuana kills braincells, they gave the test subjects (monkeys) 63 joints through a gas mask administered over the period of five minutes without providing them with oxygen. I know you are pretty ignorant but I think everyone knows that after 4 minutes without oxygen, you can suffocate. If you suffocate, the first thing that will happen is you will lose braincells. As far as ruining peoples lives, I assume it was because of addiction? Well actually cannabis use is habitual not addictive. Oh and by the way, in ten THOUSAND years of use, there are ZERO deaths from cannabis use on record. I have a 3.6 grade point average, and I smoke weed, everyday, of every week, of every month, of every year. So next time you go babbling on the internet, do some homework before you run your mouth. I HAVE SPOKEN!
I was going to comment on someone else's amazingly ignorant post but I instead chose yours. So consider this a reply to you and anyone else that falsely uses made up statistics to in your words &quot;babble on the internet&quot; When I was in high school, some friends of mine were out one night, high out of their minds and the driver of their car ran through a stop sign because he was too baked to notice said stop sign and the result was a car full of banged up friends and a dead expectant mother and very badly injured young girl in the car they smashed in to. Sooooooooo there's two cannabis related deaths for you. A young woman and her unborn baby. Think about that next time you're about to use that stat that someone made up and people continue to use to make their own selfish point. You can do whatever you want to do with your life. But please don't believe that pot never contributed to anyone's death.
With all due respect to your friend - they didn't kill those people because they were high - they killed them because they were driving while high - dui is illegal. just because X can lead to Y does not, in my opinion, justify making X illegal.<br><br>drink driving is illegal - but it's neither illegal to drink nor to drive. why would this be any different?<br><br>i think it's quite clear that he meant no deaths as a direct result of drug toxicity. marijuana didn't kill that poor woman - selfish stupidity did.<br>
using your same choice of website to go against marijuana consumption look at http://www.cannabis.net/health/index.html Marijuana has never been proven in research to induce laziness or decrease the probability of getting a decent wage. Yes it does have carcinogens when used in an unfiltered smoke method however there are other means such as tinctures, edibles, and vaporized smoke that does not have traceable amounts of carcinogens. While we are on that matter by the way did you know that if you live within a 250 mile radius of a city or industrial plant there are more carcinogens in your air every day then that of unfiltered smoke? Also through our daily activities we get exposed to between 200 and 500 different carcinogens. You must look at not just scientific studies but ones that have been tried, tested and repeated a dozen times for use in arguments. Marijuana is a useful drug that is safer then 99% of the marketed drugs that it is being used instead of.
&quot;Something else is dangerous, therefore this is safe&quot;?<br><br>Whatever helps you sleep at night, I suppose.
I said safer which yes, is correct. I never said it was completely safe because peoples stupidity is always a factor. But everything I said is accurate show me some research to disprove it and I'll believe you.
http://learnmem.cshlp.org/content/7/3/132.full<br><br>http://www.abc.net.au/news/2008-06-04/study-strengthens-marijuana-brain-damage-case/2459244<br><br>You'll notice that the studies quoted to &quot;prove&quot; marijuana is safe all use purified extracts from the plant, whereas those that show it is dangerous are referring to the full plant or resin, and all the other organic compounds therein. You know, the stuff people actually smoke.
Sorry maybe I wasn't clear. I said yes smoking marijuana is bad for you. Any smoke is bad for you. However, with recent developments in the medicinal marijuana industry there have been advancements in alternative forms of putting more and more of a &quot;pure&quot; substance into the body. I know this can not be done unless you reverse-engineered the THC/Cannoboids like there are doing for marinol. Although there are other forms such as tinctures and edibles that remove many of the harmful parts of the marijuana in an attempt to isolate the good things. I am just saying marijuana is not all bad. It has very beneficial effects that in order to be used we need to get rid of the misleading information out there about it being a very deadly/dangerous drug.
Very informational, thanks!
Either would be semantically correct, I believe.
I'd <em>really</em> like to see your medical references that back up that stream of ill-informed nonsense...
its unfiltered smoke. honestly if you are going to do something that isn't good for you, choose knowing the risks, don't just try to avoid them
you didnt actually neutralize his points on it but both sides have got some really good points. i myself would never smoke the stuff because it looks disgusting....in my opinion
<br>10 times? I'm not even going to ask if you just made that up or not.<br><br>Barbecue is scientifically proven to have carcinogens in it. That doesn't stop me from grilling though.<br><br>&quot;induce laziness&quot; Really? Care to share a link to that scientific study? yeah, I didn't think you would.<br><br>&quot;has ruined a few of my friend's chances at a decent wage&quot;<br><br>The rest of your stoner friends got lucky and got good jobs right? Maybe there is just no corollary between the two?<br><br>&quot;something that will never be legalized&quot;<br><br>You mean like the 50,000 years of human existence when it was legal? It didn't seem to be such a problem then as it suddenly became in the past 80 or so years it has been illegal.<br><br>Do you want to know why drugs are illegal? Because old white folks are scared of hispanics, blacks, and asians. Unfortunately old white folks are the ones who write most laws. It really is as simple as that. Don't believe me? The historical records still exist.<br><br>Hispanics cannabis<br>blacks cocaine<br>asians opiates<br><br>Lucky for you old white folks like to drink, or they'd have outlawed that too. Oh wait they did, it just didn't work for their society.
I repeat...<br><br>&quot;...and wasted thousands of hours arguing for the legalization of something that will never be legalized.&quot;
