    At the end of every year it's tradition for my friends and I to do pub golf. Last year it was 9 holes, this year it's 10. I'm quite a small person and last year I had a pretty dreadful hangover that lasted 1-2 days. I don't have to do it, but that's not really an option in my eyes; I want to do it, but I also want to do everything I can to make sure I live through it.

    Last year I lined my stomach with oil and milk, which I'll do again this year. What else can I do, either beforehand, during, or after, to reduce the risk of me seriously harming myself? Not doing it isn't an option I'm afraid!

    Ermm well I think the one I would suggest is pacing and water or a non alcholic drink inbetween every few boozy ones?

    there's this Colombian soup that you can drink when you have a hangover its called "changua"
    is an easy recipe so you can make it, let it cool and when you wake up from your hangover- heat it up and drink it, i don't know if you'll like it but it helps, i hope the link opens up, if not just search for in google recipe for changua

    Make sure you're not drinking on an empty stomach.

    the easiest thing to reduce the risk of alcohol poisoning is not to drink.

    but seriously: eat chicken soup before that.

    Quick tip. Order a gin and tonic, hold the gin. Looks like booze, just carbonated water. Friends think I can drink so much. I'm really a massive lightweight

    Eat a carb-heavy meal before you start drinking, and drink a massive glass of water before you go to sleep after the night out. I do it all the time and I barely get hangovers at all.

    Thanks a lot guys really good answers here.

    The first three holes are pint, pint (4 shots with), pint (3 shots with).

    What kind of carb heavy meal do you suggest? Someone mentioned chicken soup which doesn't seem particularly carby. But as my first holes are all pints, can I take such a heavy meal and all that volume? Considering I'm a small guy
