My hangover cure.
1. Before bed, drink as much water as you can get down. Take 2 Tylenol PM.
2. Put 2 Excederine on your nightstand along with a huge glass of water on the night stand. If you wake up during the night, drink some.
3. When you wake up, take the Excederin and finish the water on your night stand.
4. Drink another glass of water.
5. If you weren't praying to the porcelain god and can keep food down, eat a good breakfast.
6. Keep yourself hydrated throughout the day.
Do that and your hangover will go away much faster. Plan ahead since you don't know if you'll be able think well enough to do it all after you start drinking.
Mmm....Jager. So easy to go to far. So worth it anyways.

Go the Jonathan Quick style...Start drinking around noon...ride a big bus in the sun...share a brew with a Councilman...then start cussing like a Marine from Pendleton on Nat'l TV.
"How 'bout these f***ing guys?"

Do you have alcoholic cider in America? I know most people in Sweden start out by drinking Cider (pear or apple) at 4-5% alcohol until they get the taste for beer. Goes down pretty easy and tastes sweet. Don't be afraid of the sugary stuff and don't worry about the hangover, if you stop drinking a couple of hours hours before you go to bed, drink water and have a slice of pizza or something you'll be fine. If not, don't worry about it. You've had the flu before, right? It's sort of like that, it just goes away in a few hours. Hangovers are usually only bad if you get completely blasted off your ass but that's not the goal if I understand it correctly.
I say go with the sugary stuff, it's easier to enjoy if you're not used to the taste of alcohol. Cider or one of those alcoholic sodas like Smirnoff Ice (I'd recommend Bacardi Breezer but I'm not sure they have that in the States) with 4-5% alcohol. And have a shot of something just to try it out, it's gonna taste nasty but since you might only do this once you might as well try it.

A hangover is an excellent excuse to lay in bed and watch tv.
But commit to it, don't just dip your toes in. You'll only find your line after you've crossed it. A couple of times. Then you'll cross it again willingly.

I bought a bottle of Shao Hsing wine to celebrate the Cup win...BEFORE game 4...and started the first steps of my drunk Chinese chicken salad...which I only do for special occasions...after we won... It looks like it will be done 6 times a year now...even though it costs me over $50 every time I make it...but it's good for about 7 to 10 days of leftovers...

Just jump up and down after drinking in order to avoid a hangover.
Oh, wait, I think that's how one prevents pregnancy.
