9 Drinking water helps prevent hangovers

Eh...not really. Water while drinking alcohol = vomit. Let me explain, if you drink a lot of water while or after drinking alcohol it gets too “heavy” in your stomach and most of the times you will throw up. Yes dehydration is a part of being hung-over but you’ll be dehydrated anyways from puking if you drink water while or after “partying”. Instead of saying it prevents hang-overs, I would say it’s more of a remedy. After you wake up hung-over is when I would say drink water to help with your dehydration. Don’t over do it though or you still might get “sick”.

If you drink alcohol, you can get serious hangovers.
