So you got your independence on in a big way yesterday. Good for you. But now, you’re paying the price, and you want our help in figuring out how to calm the raging beast between your temples?

Well, fine, Just this once. Here are 5 of our favorite tips for getting yourself back in the game:

1. Pickles. This cure is used from Poland to Japan. In Poland they drink pickle juice straight — in Japan, they eat umeboshi, pickled fruit. So go get your drunk ass to a deli.

2. “The hair of the dog,” or, keep drinking. I know, it’s surprising, isn’t it? And here you’ve spent years mocking sorority girls who wake up with puke caked to the sides of their faces only to roll out of bed and drink more vodka straight from the bottle. But they’re on to something. Try a Bloody Mary and you’ll fill your stomach as well as reap the benefits of the vitamins in tomato juice.

3. Sweat it out. This also means swallowing your pride, because you’ll be that chick running and panting and smelling like alcohol in the gym. In Russia, they simply sit in a sauna. You’ll still be the girl who sweats tequila, but at least it will be dark.

4. Drink green tea for it’s cleansing benefits.

5. Drink a lot of water, take two Tylenol, and go back to sleep.
