    Hypothetically speaking say you've been drinking around 12pm how do you sober yourself up to go somewhere important at 4-5pm.

    Sleeping is a bad idea, because i don't think they'd be time to sleep.

    Eat, eat and eat some more. And drink a lot of water. Its the only thing that has any chance of working.

    Do you think that would be enough to function normally and not look drunk? I'm small in size does that mean it will take longer to sober up?

    According to the pioneers of alcohol consumption (the local barbers), they said a massive vodka with fresh orange really helps.

    It depends on how drunk you actually are. But yes, it should be enough, if you've got about half an hour or so to let it set in. I don't think height will make that much of a difference, only to the amount you have to drink to get drunk in the first place.

    There's no easily available "antidote" to alcohol so to speak, the best you can do is eat plenty to limit further absorption of alcohol, drink plenty of water to keep hydrated and have a strong coffee. Even if you feel able, don't drive if you may be over the limit though.

    Have a shower, drink some coffee, drink lots of water, and then sit down and relax for a couple of minutes.

    You won't feel sober, but you'l be ready to face the world without feeling like death.

    Do more exercise and other things stated and sober up even faster. The fitter one is the alcohol is broken down faster.

    Don't bother, just drink good gin and tonics (Blackwoods, Plymouth, Bombay Sapphire). I doubt there's any science behind this, but they produce a level of drunkenness that is often mistaken for wit and sophistication.

    Although water rehydrates the brain so stops you getting a hangover, there is no actual way to make the body process the alcohol quicker.
