5 Hangover Myths Your Drunk Ass Should Finally Stop Falling For In 2016


Whatever our ambitious resolutions for 2016 may be, the vast majority of us will be striving for one thing, and one thing only on the morning of January 1 – to find a cure for our miserable hangovers.

After an epic night spent ringing in the new year, dizzy with fresh hopes and dreams heightened by glittery dresses and flowing Champagne, there's no buzzkill like starting the first day of 2016 feeling like total sh*t.

So we called in Dr. Roshini Raj, gastroenterologist and health expert seen on the “TODAY Show,” “Good Day NY,” the “Dr. Oz Show” and more, for some much-needed help.

Look at that glow. Does she look like an amateur who lets nasty hangovers bring her down? Didn't think so.

Here are five hangover myths Raj says we need to stop falling for – and her tips on how to party smarter in the new year.

Myth #1: When it comes to hangovers, all alcohol is created equal.

Next time, hold the whiskey – and the soda.

Myth #2: The best cure for a hangover is the hair of the dog (a morning drink).

Honey, no. Put down that mimosa and reach for the water (and some moisturizer, while you're at it).

Myth #3: A Tylenol before bed will prevent a hangover in the morning.

Lies. Bottles filled with lies.

Myth #4: Eating right before bed can help absorb the alcohol and decrease hangover symptoms.

But, but... ugh. This one hits us where it hurts. Goodbye, beautiful 3 am pizza.

Myth #5: The more you weigh, the more you can drink.

Ladies, listen up.

Don't be a sucker. It's time for a new, informed, migraine-free you.
