When Squeak gave me this “anti-hangover recipe” per se, I admit I was a bit leery. But I figured I’d have a wee bit too much to drink on my birthday so gave it a whirl…
To avoid the after-effects of alcohol (including massive headaches), stock up on Vitamin B12 (and it’s cheap). Take 2 pills right before your first drink, and then 2 pills with every fourth drink.
Mind you, I don’t normally drink over four drinks at one setting, but people bought me a lot of shots (Three Wise Men is nasty) for my birthday. You would have thought it was my 21st birthday at the bar. I was pregnant with twins back then when I turned 21 and didn’t even drink caffeine – well my “29 and still holding” birthday this week more than made up missing it.
Kudos to Squeak for the bottle of B12 that my posse and I devoured. I felt fine the next morning – not even an itsy bitsy headache! I was a tad tired, but getting only a couple hours of sleep will do that to you, and nothing a nap after the kids go to school can’t help. Actually I had to take my daughter to the dentist yesterday morning so my siesta had to wait until after lunch.
So, if you know you are going to drink too much, I suggest you stock up on Vitamin B-12! And would Squeak and I steer you wrong? Okay, don’t answer that.
