I was told once that the prime reason we get a hangover from excessive alcohol consumption is that it contains a Diuretic of some kind.
Thus, you pee more, and loose more water - dehydrating your body and giving yourself a hangover.
Now I personally do believe this, since I know that drinking 5 pints of water before i go to bed makes me feel 10 times better in the morning.
My question however, is this:
If alcohol contains a diuretic, surely I could make my own alcoholic drink that contians traces of Antidiuretics, hopefully cancelling out the effect of the chemical on the body. Hence, a good night, without the hangover!
Would this be possible?
