    I Agree with everyone, good advice! (And I think a lot of us on the board practice at home before the trip!:beer::drunk:)
    Also pick a liquor/ beer/wine and stick with it . Switching liquors makes me feel worse the next day.

    If you want to raise your tolerance level then eat something to slow down the absorption in your stomach. Something like a bread. Milk works well to coat the stomach lining.

    If you want to avoid getting a headache while drinking...don’t mix liquor/beer/wine.

    Hangover cure is simple as having a drink in the morning. One only.

    Welcome to the board and have a great trip!!!

    Ever since I hit the early 50s, it seems like I never get true hangovers anymore. Sometimes after a night out I'll feel blaaahh in the morning, but seldom if ever the head-pounding wish-you-were-dead-so-it-would-be-over type thing.

    Even on my worst drinking night of the last several years (written up in a TR here, seeking it shall be an exercise for the student) I had much too much but woke up and came back to life without much of a problem.

    It may be that I've grown accustomed to drinking more water, particularly when out drinking.

    Yes, keep your eye on your drink and don't accept a drink unless you see the bartender make it and hand it directly to you. Rule I learned wayyyy back and never been a victim of the Mickey.

    Uh, if you're out drinking, this kinda comes naturally. :)

    Lots of great advice and info here. I've actually been drugged once...luckily for me I was not alone and knew something was not right and was gotten out of there quickly. I passed out and woke up the next day feeling HORRIBLE. Worst feeling ever.

    I learned this from a waitress when I was in Punta Cana .... next morning mix pepsi and black coffee (about 2 oz each) and drink it down - works like a charm.

    From you other posts you are going solo, so my advice is to plan accordingly and opt to drink less and save a post like this for your no solo trips. ;)
    With that said I have some ideas.
    Obvious and what others said...drink plenty of water.
    Take some Tums before going to bed to reduce some acid.
    Black coffee in the morning.
    A warm Coke in the morning for an upset stomach.
    If all else fails, hit up Reviv @ MGM.
    Best of luck. :beer:

    I have done the warm Coke for upset stomach and black coffee for the hangover but never mixed the two.
    Must they be mixed or can you drink them concurrently?

    I do not drink alcohol but...
    I once watched someone eat a whole stick of butter before a night of heavy drinking.

    This does work, as does a teaspoon of vegetable oil. Again, it coats the stomach. Slowing down the absorption rate.

    With the butter and the oil this may be a case of the cure being worse than the sickness. I do not think I could stomach that. :yuck:

    I’m a huge drip drop fan. It not only helps keep you hydrated, it has been great to keep the night leg cramps away after doing more walking than usual.

    I try to avoid drinking too much, I do not like the feeling of being drunk. I find it embarrassing. I enjoy a happy buzz. I drink all day in Vegas but as soon as I start to get the buzz feeling I back off and drink water until to goes away. Then I rev up again. The goal is a happy buzz all day.

    I did overdo it unintentionally at Chandelier one afternoon. Classic mistake of forgetting lunch. I was having fun chatting with the staff while playing VP. Those little pieces of paper just kept popping out. A bunch of lemon drops later I stood up and became quite disoriented with all the crystals every where I looked. I was mortified. I tried to walk as straight as I could back to aria. Longest walk ever. Of course I had a corner suite so had to walk the hallway from hell. I felt like a pinball bouncing off the walls the entire way. Those curvy halls are tough. I did have some drip drop. I woke up the next day with a slight headache but the worst is the loss of energy. There is so much fun to be had I hate to spend a day not wanting to go far. Never again!

    Hope you are able to have an enjoyable, safe and hangover free trip.

    I'm new in here and was worried I was not reading the atmosphere very well. Thanks for being so gracious with me. :blowkiss:

    EEEEEeeeeeeewwwwwww!!!!!

    Sounds about as disgusting as that "deep fried butter" carnival food.

    More like it, but you could get that with a salad at dinner.
