Blogmas Day 10: Holiday Hangover Cures


I’m struggling to put a festive spin on this beyond Christmas party hangover cures. It’s pretty hard to make vomming then having an Irn Bru and a bacon sandwich Christmassy but I’ll try my very best.

I can tell you what not to do; don’t watch Ab Fab, they drink so much and smoke so much you’ll be green before the opening credits.


Don’t have a shower (solely because I’ve thrown up in the shower in an attempt to use a hangover cure that loads of people have recommended “have a shower to freshen up!”).


Also don’t get on a train if you can help it, this is because I’ve hungover-vommed on a train not once but twice…there are only so many apologies you can give a cleaner. I still think about that poor woman sometimes. I wonder if that bathroom needed redoing…

Do have something sugary to get your blood sugar up, like some juice, sugary tea, or my personal hangover favourite, Irn Bru. I know a woman who swears by a proper coffee to empty her stomach in a different way.

My hangovers can go one of two ways, I’m either starving all day and could eat everything and anything in sight. Or I throw up, have some Irn Bru then a nap then feel starving.

If you’re nursing a Christmas hangover of the hungry variety on boxing day then eat leftover chocolate, pigs in blankets and stuffing to your heart’s content and plonk yourself in front of a film.

If it’s a hangover of the explosive variety then find a bathroom get it all up, down something sugary, have a nap and then lie down and watch a film and feel sorry for yourself…while eating leftover chocolate, pigs in blankets and stuffing till you feel better.

And remember you’ll feel better tomorrow morning.

Only 15 days left till Christmas guys! And if you’re reading this because you have a killer hangover, if you can, get some booze down you and practice the hair of the dog technique. It is the Christmas way.


Happy Human Rights Day!

Human rights are not a privilege conferred by government. They are every human being’s entitlement by virtue of his humanity.  -Mother Theresa

  1. Another great post! 🙂 Also, that Karen Walker gif is everything. I don’t drink as much as I used to because the older I get (I’m 45), the hangovers are worse than being forced to listen to any Taylor Swift song on repeat. Actually, I take that back. When I did drink like I was trying win a prize, my hangover cure was blowing chunks, then eating all the carbs, pounding a coke with 23 Advil. BC Powder is also great, if you can stomach powdered aspirin. Thank you for sharing and thank you for the laugh! 🙂


  2. I absolutely loved this! A lot of these won’t work for me, as when I’m rough, I puke until tea-time the next day, but it’s nice to hear someone at least acknowledge the explosive hangover! I feel supported. This makes a nice change to blogmas – cheers! 🙂 xo
