10 Tips That Will Save You From Another Earth Shattering Hangover
The plague of the hangover is as old as alcohol itself. At this point you probably know how they happen in a practical sense, and that if you continually sprint from tipsy to turnt, they're going to keep on happening. Sure there's hangover-helpers like ibuprofen, water, and maybe a dash of common sense, but we all know how hard it is to control yourself when the music is loud and the vibes are strong. Thus, we've compiled 10 tips on how you can drink without suffering the fate of another morning that hurts your brain more than college Earth science.
1. Take a picture of yourself while hungover and make it your phone's screensaver for the evening.
The pain of your last hangover will be lodged into your subconscious and you won't be able to escape it. Every time you're waiting at the bar for a drink and glance down to your screen to check the time or Tinder inbox, you'll be reminded that you probably shouldn't order another Moscow Mule. You can even make this photo live on both your lock screen and home screen, so there's double the reminder to take it easy.
2. Stop drinking.
This is an obvious one. There's no possible to way to be hungover if you spend the night watching Girls. You may still wake up wondering why your life is shit, but at least you'll be less likely to vomit.
3. Ask your friends to hold your wallet.
If you drink like a fish then your wallet flaps will be a revolving door. No money equals no drinks. Hopefully your friends have more self control than you do.
