Hangovers absolutely suck, this is something everyone can agree on. We never really let the fear of a hangover stop us from drinking, but there are ways to prevent them or even make them a little less painful. Here's a list of expert-tested things you can do to prevent a hangover before it starts:

Before drinking

1. Eat!

No one wants to look bloated while they're out so we usually opt for a small meal before we drink. What you should actually be doing is having a a large meal that contains carbs, protein and fat before you drink. This will help you metabolize alcohol better when you drink, and prevent a hangover.

2. Rest

While sleep won't save you from a hangover, it will improve your immunity and get your body ready to handle a night of heavy drinking.

3. Take vitamins

Taking multivitamins before drinking can help prevent inflammation and oxidative stress. The antioxidants in vitamins help minimize the damage.

While drinking

1. Skip the smoking

Even if you're not usually a smoker, many people tend to enjoy a smoke or two when they are drinking. If you want to avoid a hangover, skip the smokes. Researchers found that when people drink heavily, smoking significantly increased the risk and severity of a hangover.

2. Don't drink soda

If you're having mixed drinks, try switching from a soda mixer to a juice. Fruit and vegetable juices contain extra vitamins, they're always better for you than soda
