St. Patrick's Day means drinking. But let's face it, so does any other random weekend night for a lot of New Jerseyans. And the age-old question is, how do you avoid a hangover?

It's always better to prevent one in advance than to try to rid yourself of it once it's there. So forget the hangover remedy — this is Hangover Prevention 101.

There are no less than a zillion hangover remedies out there. Some of them are expensive, some of them are old wives tales that just don't work and of course, there's always the old hair of the dog which doesn't really do anything for you except for prolong your drunken state. The only way to ensure that you do not have a hangover is to do it proactively.

If you search for exactly the right way to do this you will also see 1,000 different ways but this one is almost 100 percent fool proof. In fact, I don't know anybody who's ever used this method before a night of heavy duty adult beverage enjoyment who still woke up miserable the next day.
