What Works

In fact, none of these ideas helps get over a hangover. The only thing that helps is time.

Blood alcohol concentration (BAC) drops at the rate of .015 of BAC every hour. And it’s virtually the same for everyone. So height, weight, gender, race, and ethnicity doesn’t matter.

BAC drops 0.015 of BAC every hour.  So a person with a BAC of 0.15 will have no alcohol in the blood after ten hours. That is, 0.15 divided by .015 = 10. 

Similarly, a driver with a BAC of 0.08 will have no alcohol in the blood after 5.33 hours. Again, 0.08 divided by 0.015 = 5.33

How Can I Prevent Hangovers?

    • Drink in moderation. (See below for tips.)
    • Choose clear alcoholic beverages. Examples include vodka and gin.1 Darker beverages make hangovers worse. Examples include dark beer and red wine.
    • Avoid effervescent drinks. They increase absorption of alcohol into the blood.
    • Drink a lot of water. This dilutes alcohol in the blood.
    • Avoid diet beverages. Artificial sweeteners speed alcohol absorption.

Tips for Drinking in Moderation

    • Avoid punches. 
    • Accept an alcoholic drink only when it fits your drinking schedule.
