Today we ’ re taking a look at a simple survival guide for when you wake up after over-indulging, so you ’ ll know what to to get back on your feet. Preparation The most important thing you can do is prepare. The worst hangovers happen when you don ’ t just drink too much, but when your body is unprepared for what you ’ re about to do to it.
