The person who has never experienced a nasty hangover is probably a rare one indeed. There are, of course, people that do not drink alcohol for religious or health reasons, but speaking of the western world in general, it’s probably safe to assume that the majority of people drink at least occasionally. The risks associated with drinking are better understood these days, and an occasional drink is even encouraged by many medical professionals as something more helpful than harmful for most people.

The best way is probably to drink two or three glasses of water before going to bed. You could also try drinking water along with every alcoholic drink you have, but that seems like a solution that isn’t as practical as downing some water at bedtime. Bartender, could I have a gin and tonic and a glass of water? Maybe not.
