#Hangover cures: Drinking water will do nothing to cure a headache, say experts

Following no demand whatsoever Friday afternoon alcohol stories return…..

Drinking lots of water will do nothing to cure a hangover, scientists have found.

Despite being perceived as one of the best ways to end the misery of the morning after the night before, researchers have now claimed to confirm that all attempts to rehydrate the body do nothing to stop the effects of a hangover.

It is still a good idea to drink water between drinks to reduce your overall consumption. But it doesn’t seem to reduce the hangover effect.

“There are no cures for a hangover,” the NHS Choices website says. “There are tips to avoiding hangovers and for easing the symptoms if you have one. The best way to avoid a hangover is not to drink.”

If you’re worried about your or someone else’s drug or alcohol use there are a range of free and confidential treatment and recovery services available across Warwickshire:
