How To Cure A Hangover

Overdid it? – Here are some suggestions to regain the will to live

1. Researchers from a University in Guangzhou, China tested how 57 different drinks affected the way the body metabolizes alcohol, concluding that Sprie was the most effective at eradicating the effects of the previous night.

2. Eat a big bacon and egg fry up. Eggs contain an amino acid called cysteine which breaks down acetaldehyde, just as your poor liver would. Bacon too has amino acids which will help you feel better. Also eating a greasy meal before you start drinking slows the rate at which you absorb alcohol, so now you have an excuse to eat it before and after a night out.

 

3. In Proof: the science of booze, science journalist Adam Rogers  says the ‘Hair of the dog that bit you’ – i.e. alcohol, may lessen a hangover’s effects though he cautions this is hypothetical. Worth a shot?

 

4. Drink lots of water cause you are going to be dehydrated – idiot. I know, ‘you are never going to drink again’ – heard it before! – I think those words are from  me.

Prepare the Strawberries
Choose the largest strawberries that you can find. Wash and dry them. Cut the bottom part of the strawberries so that they can stand upright. Then, cut the top part off of the strawberries.
Using a melon baller and scoop out the inside of the strawberries very carefully without punching any holes or breaking the strawberries.

Make the Strawberry Margarita Jell-O

Boil 6 ounces of margarita mix. Place the strawberry Jell-O in a bowl and add the boiling margarita mix. Stir well until the jello dissolves completely. Add the tequila, tripe sec or Grand Marnier and stir.

Refrigerate the Strawberries

Refrigerate the Strawberries

Place the strawberries on a plate and fill them with the strawberry margarita jello. Put the plate in the refrigerator. Refrigerate for at least four hours or until firm.
Leave any remaining strawberry margarita jello outside the refrigerator. You might need it to refill some strawberries that leak.
Note: Some strawberries will leak. Just wait until the initial jello sets and then refill the strawberries with more jello. Any spilled jello on the plate can be scooped with a spoon.

Stress Is Like A Glass Of Water

This is an article that was published on my Husbands website Sexcigarsbooze.com I believe it to be very profound and certainly a great new way of explaining the damage stress can do. I love simple, new ways of introducing an ‘Ahaa’ moment.

86486949

A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired: “How heavy is this glass of water?”

Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz.

She replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute, it’s not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my arm. If I hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes.” She continued, “The stresses and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them a bit longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed – incapable of doing anything.”

It’s important to remember to let go of your stresses. As early in the evening as you can, put all your burdens down. Don’t carry them through the evening and into the night. Remember to put the glass down!
