I have a beer for breakfast - I find that really helps. Otherwise I guess I just put up with it, usually mine aren't too bad. I've got a horrible one today though, I think it's because I was still drunk when I woke up and started drinking on Satuday.
My worst blackout was 2 years ago when my entire class went up to a ski resort for the weekend. We stayed in a huge chalet and the rooms had huge bunk beds, and apparently at about 10pm I had gone downstairs with this girl that I had been hooking up with at the time. Now this is all her recollection but apparently we were fooling around, and I stopped her to go throw up outside. Then I came back in and she still wanted to go at it. I woke up the next morning wearing nothing but boxers and a hoodie and found her panties on my floor. Apparently I threw up all over my pants just as we were about to **** and didn't have the energy to clean myself up so a couple of other classmates came in to clean up after me and take care of me. One guy told me I had tried to shotgun a tallcan earlier in the night but after poking the hole in the can I just opened the beer and started drinking it regularly while it poured all over my clothes from the bottom, yelled "shotgunning is stupid", threw the can into a pile of snow and stormed off.
Piecing that night together was not fun. I'm also now known as "pukey pants"
Ahh that's pretty bad. Luckily for me I'm not much of a puker. I'm a bad pisser though - I have pissed off a balcony, into a trash can and even onto someones bed whilst they were in it. I have also pissed my pants once but luckily my GENIUS friend claimed I'd passed out and he'd thrown water on my to try and wake me up, so my dignity was saved.
That's another reason why I don't drink in excess. I generally don't puke, but there have been times where puking was a total embarrassment.
I remember a few years ago at a Super Bowl party I drank so much beer and ate hot wings. We ended up running out of beer, so my friend found an old vodka bottle. We began drinking that, too. I was so wasted I remember trying to talk to this girl and totally blowing it because I didn't make any sense and she was sober.
A few hours later, I felt that puking sensation. I dashed to the restroom and crashed onto the frame of the door. I ended up making it to the sink and let it all out. I puked my guts in the sink and my friend was trying to move me to the toilet.
I ended up passing out on the toilet then tried to go home, but my friend took my keys. So I went to sleep in the guest room until later. That house I went to had no reception, so I missed like 20 calls of the chick I was dating then. She was coming into town and wanted me to pick her up, but I totally forgot in my drunken stupor. Needless to say I got dumped for that little episode. Good times.
About half the times I get drunk I end up embarrassing myself in some way but I've found that no-one really cares. Drunkenness has absolutely no social stigma in the UK. The number of times I have woken up feeling that I'd done something awful and that no-one would speak to me again is enormous, but always I found out I had nothing to worry about. And I am a really bad drunk when I hit that blackout stage - can be very abusive, can lose all motor-control and fall about all over the place, can piss in bad places, can reveal very personal information, in short I am what you would call a liability (though it takes me several hours and more than a whole bottle of spirits to get to this stage, during which time I am great, so I guess this why people put up with me when I do black out)
I've also been very lucky with girlfriends in that none of them have cared that I'm a drunk, I think it's because I play the old tortured genius card.

I've become a total pussy when it comes to drinking heavily due to the horrific hangovers I get the next day. How do you cope with them? After one of those I don't feel like drinking for weeks.
No, I have this too. The frequency of my binges has come down to around once a month, and I make sure I don't have to do anything the next day. Don't know how I did it only a few years ago.

Hahahaha, LOVED this
EDIT: Oh, so that Wednesday I was telling you about... I did still manage to return home with my credit card (a minor achievement), AND somehow even my tip off! The charge was like 92.83 or something, and it just changed to $110, which means I somehow was able to calculate the 17.17 tip... or I suppose I could have just wrote 110... or the bartender could have just charged it knowing I wouldn't remember. Being poor sucks though, I usually treat bartenders better than that.
Doesn't stop the hangover, but helps with the headache part.
The headache caused from dehydration just needs electrolytes and water. Gatorade/Powerade is perfect. Drinking just plain water leads to you pissing it all back out. If you don't have gatorade then sometimes I swallow a heap of salt rocks, like tablets, with a big glass or two of water.
The upset stomach though, is alcohol poisoning. No cure for that. Eating helps if you can keep it down.
I used to be able to get ****faced and sleep a few hours and wake up to work out in the morning just a few years ago. I would get hangovers from time to time, but they were mild.
I found that when I was in great shape I could abuse the **** out of my body and not suffer consequences. Up until maybe two years ago I was still good to go out two or there times a week sometimes more.
Nowadays I will feel the hangover every time I drink more than my body can take. And the hangovers are fierce. I'm talking headaches, nausea, chills sometimes and of course throwing up. Although I actually rather throw up because I seem to get over it quicker but I'm not generally a puker.
