It's a Hangover Blog Hop, Evernight Style

Happy New Year from Evernight!

Now that the Christmas cookies are gone, gifts unwrapped, and your holiday visitors have left, you’ve earned some well-deserved TLC. Evernight authors not only have the cure for your holiday hangover, they have fantastic new books for your 2015 reading list, too!

Be sure to visit every stop on the hop and answer each question. The more blogs you hop, the more chances to win the GRAND PRIZE of an iPad Mini sponsored by Evernight Publishing (one entry per blog). Plus, hop each blog for a host of other fabulous prizes. AND...
*I'm going give a prize to one commentor (randomly chosen) as well: $25 Paypal cash.*

So sink into your favorite chair and enjoy your holiday hangover!

I'm not the world's best when it comes to drinking alcohol. There are some folks with the tolerance of a whale. I, on the other hand, have the tolerance of a squirrel lol! However, I've discovered a great way to go from enjoying a night of appletinis, Vegas bombers and cosmos to a cheery morning sans the crazy hangover:

***Lots of water***

For whatever reason, getting in a few cups of water before calling it a night helps reduce the chance of morning headache, dizziness and nausea. It seems to help settle the system to a state of normal. I'm sure there's some science to explain it, but since it works, I just won't question it :-)

Now, enter for a chance to win Evernight’s GRAND PRIZE of an iPad Mini and my blog prize by answering this question (be sure to include your email address to be eligible to win):

So, have you ever experienced a hangover, whether from one drink too many or another overindulgence (like waaaay too much stress from the holidays)? What has been your go-to cure for your hangover?

A good book can work as a hangover cure from stress-related things. I'd recommend Beacon, published by Evernight Teen. It's a YA urban fantasy dystopian filled with action and a budding romance that I truly hope you enjoy!

Don't drink so never had that issue. I would suggest not doing it.

Angela Brown said...

Glad to be a part of it! Cheers!

Not drinking would avoid the hangover issue when it comes to alcohol :-)

When I have a hangover (not very often) but I usually drink a glass of water along with 3 motrin. Then I lay down in my bed (curtains and blinds closed) and lay a cool wash cloth over my eyes/forehead for about 30 -45 mins and I usually feel better. Have a Happy New Year.

Orange gatorade has always been my go to, especially during my college party days. Drink a bottle of that and take 2 ibuprofren. Definitely helped to lessen the affects. If I followed my grandfather's advice, it would be a shot of brandy....That never worked for me :)

Tequila is not my friend and never has been. best friends b-day. The next morning slept in, drank lots of water, and cardio (to sweat it out). sweetga_peech@yahoo.com

Don't do that often...something for a headache and non alcoholic fluids...deborahetta61@gmail.com

Anne said...

I've overeaten a great meal and I basically just sit/lay there until I recover.

Happy New Year! I never drink alcohol but my alcoholic father, God rest his soul, always told us to eat between shots and drink a lot fo water to avoid those awful hangovers.

Amy said...

Since I have autoimmune issues I get a lot of overdoing it "hangovers" especially around the holidays so for me bed and good books is a great way to get through them.

Michelle DeLeon said...

haven't drunk in years but if I decide to tie one on at some point I'll try to remember to drink lots of water

Juana said...

I don't drink alcohol so I will hopefully never know how it feels to have a hangover.

Cassie Geary said...

ummmm....I've had one or a few :) I have learned that drinking water between beverages and taking Vit B complex before, during and after drinking work wonders!!! And always have a Gatorade available in the morning!!!

Yes! I normally just eat some crackers! (tiffanie(dot)ford(at)aol.com

One drink & I fall asleep. Alcohol can really dehydrate you. Water is the best thing.

Marnie Ward said...

I have experienced one to many hangovers. I have a bad habit of overindulgence that sometimes gets me into trouble. My go-to cure for my hangovers is drink a lot of water and a couple of Bloody Mary's.

Happy New Year,
Marnie

Go back to bed. Works for me every time.

amanda smith said...

I can't handle alcohol very well. I usually just rest all day and take Tylenol. I'm not a very nice person to be around when I have a hangover LOL.

I don't get hangover because I don't drink but I do sympathies with people who do I'm told if you drink plenty of water and have pain killer you usually recover quite well.

Veronika said...

I've never been hungover because I don't drink, but I've heard water is the cure because of the dehydration.

Michelle Willms said...

I drink water, lots of water. Alcohol dehydrates. I've read you're to drink one 8 oz. glass of water for every 1 oz. or alcohol (or mixed drink or beer). I've only had one really bad hangover and I've vowed to avoid ever having another. It was pure misery. Thus far, I've succeeded. I don't drink too much. I have low tolerance, too. I think mine is more along the lines of a guinea pig. :) michelle_willms at yahoo dot com

I like to drink Dr. Pepper the morning after, but I didn't have any the last time so some eggs, hashbrowns, toast and Mt. Dew helped.

Linda Kish said...

When I was much younger and drank, I had hangovers. I don't remember what I did for them other than water, aspirin and sleep. I haven't had a drink in 25 years (allergy).

I can't drink too much because I start to feel faint, but I always thought Mexican food nipped hangovers in the bud. I don't know if the corn masa absorbs the toxins, or what...

Sleep and lots of water.

I've never had a hangover. But I think Tylenol, water and toast would help!! Happy New Year!! Christy_love14@hotmail.com

DMS said...

I have had a hangover before- and lots of water definitely helps. Sleep is a must and I recently read that pickle juice is a perfect cure (a small cupful before bed). I haven't tried the pickle juice- but it does sound interesting. As I do not like the hangover feeling- the best cure I have found is not getting one. :)

Happy New Year and thanks for the AMAZING giveaway!

Water and ibuprofin (taken prior to drinking) works wonders. Thanks for being a part of this blog hop. laura.striplin@gmail.com

Lisa Mancl said...

When I over indulged, not so much any more as I am older and wiser. SpaghettiOs, yes they helped a lot. Tomato sauce products, like pizza and spaghetti sauce help the acid in your stomach. Works for me.

Brandi said...

I dont drink(cuz it gives me bad heartburn & the heartburn coming up when i'm sleeping is not a good thing cuz it wakes me up & my throat burns & I feel like I gotta puke! =( ), but the 2 times I did I made sure to drink lots of water & have some ibuprofen nearby,... and sleep!! =)

When i'm stressed I read or sleep! So sleep is a big thing for me lol!

Hope you have a great 2015! =)

I don't recover from hangovers like I used to. So I try not to drink too much. If I do, lots of water and some ibuprofen before going to sleep.

Liz Zee said...

I've only had a couple hangovers. When I do get them, I need sleep. Lots and lots of sleep. And water. And bad tv. And silence.

Beacon sounds really good! I love dystopian, and it sounds great how you've mixed vampires and humans together.

Thank you!

Christine Rains said...

I don't suppose this is a question to ask someone who doesn't drink alcohol. *LOL* But I have watched many a friend suffer with one. A few friends swear by energy drinks. I guess it works like water. One other says sex works best. I think that's a good cure for most things! :)

flikchick said...

Somewhere along the way, I became the resident DD, for years now, so I don't get the chance to indulge when I go out!But back in the day, some food beforehand, and lots of water, sleep and painkillers after.

Happy New Year!

I've had very few hangovers. I'm a control freak. Mainly drink lots of water, some advil, and if it was the time I was sick from margaritas and my stomach hurt. Yogurt.

I have never had a hangover from drinking to much, as I don`t drink, but I have definitely had headaches from to much stress. I either take a nap or go have a hot bath and read a book.

Tina B said...

I have experienced hangovers before, though because I don't really drink, it hasn't been too often. I try to drink as much water as possible and sleep. Sometimes, I need to take something for the headache too.
Thank you for the great giveaway.

I've never had a hangover. While I like to have an alcoholic drink every now & then, i don't like the out of control feeling of being drunk, so a few drinks & I'm done.

Emily said...

I have never had a hangover before (thank God), so I'm not the best with cures. Though water and aspirin can work wonders if you wake up from an evening of overindulging in watching movies and playing Cards Against Humanity with friends :)

No to hangovers. They do not treat my body well. Have a great time hopping and not having any headaches.

J.L. Campbell said...

Looks like you've had a wonderful hop.
Nope, I'm not one to get drunk. I've been merry a time or two though, but some sleep usually works wonders. :)

Susanna Leonard Hill said...

Wow! This is quite the blog hop! I had to scroll down for so long to leave a comment that my hand got tired and I had to stop and rest :) I'm not a drinker, so no hangover stories, but boy, an iPad mini would be something! :)

Stephen Tremp said...

I totally missed this Blog Hop. First I heard of it. I really do need to get out more. Happy New Year!
