I read that if you skip your morning cup of coffee it can make things worse because you'll be going through caffeine withdrawal on top of the hangover??

9/10 It's true about not having to get wasted to be hungover. I've been wasted with no hangover, and had one drink and then been hunger as.

10/10 but I still get terrible hangovers whenever I drink now. I would never survive my college days again!

8/10, but I've never actually been hungover, so I missed the one about eating the bread and taking the Tylenol. I actually knew that aspirin is what you want to take, not Tylenol, but I didn't think of it. I knew that the order of drinks doesn't matter, but the amount of impurities in the liquor/wine/beer of choice does. The more impurities, the worse the hangover. That's probably partially why some of my college buddies could drink their body weight in vodka and feel only slightly sick the next day but the same amount of beer would make them super sick.

9 out of 10! I know beer before liquor technically won't make you sicker if you're drinking the same amount either way (like, if you have two beers and then two shots of tequila, it's not worse than drinking the tequila first) but if you start with beer and move to hard liquor, you're already drunk and not tasting it as much and you can just drink more liquor faster so you do end up drunker. I think that's where the saying comes from. I

10/10 but I've heard all of these because I'm in college. One of my friends will drink heavily with work the next day, and she will set her alarm every 30 minutes to take a drink of water. It's stupid. She should just drink less! Not that I'm one to talk, I've been known to overindulge during a basketball game or two (or all of them).

Yogaforlife, Aspirin is ok because it doesn't contain acetaminophen. other pain killers are safer than that particular one because it goes to your liver and can have horrible consequences. I've found that taking two multivitamins and a huge glass of water before bed can help me, but I also don't drink as much as I used to (aka college)
