Step #1, eat a good meal, lots of breads or pastas.
Step #2, take a multivitamin (so you don't wake up hung-over).
Step #3, take a large glass, put a few ice cubes in, and fill the glass about 30% with your sh|tty Vodka (about 3 shots worth), then fill it the rest of the way with your gatorade, powerade, or lemonade.
Step #4, mix it around, then pour it into another glass, sans ice cubes (so it won't get watered down).
Step #5, drink, then repeat steps 3-5 as desired.
You should start slowly, though. I remember @ the beginning of last school year, when I was introduced to the stuff, it was at parties, so I was talking, walking around, and dancing. It's much easier to gauge your sobriety(or lack thereof) when doing such things. I have trouble telling how sober I am if i'm just sitting on a couch drinking beer after beer or shot after shot. Good luck.
Oh, if you happen to overdo it and end up praying to the porcelain god, drink a glass of water or two and eat some bread. Another multivitamin will reduce the agony in the morning.
This is mostly right, but to add to ti:
The multi-vitamin will help, but nothing helps if you drink TOO much... except possibly a stomach pump.
To help with a hang over also try drinking 1 or 2 tall glasses of water before falling asleep. This will help ease the dehydration. A couple ibuprofen would be good to. It will help reduce swelling and ease withdraw symptoms.
One of the better mixes that will also help minimize a hangover and tastes decent is not only orange juice but cranberry juice as well. Mix in the cranberry juice and orange in equal amounts.
Mix in only as much vodka as tastes good. Don't over do it. If you only put 1 shot in a tall glass with these don't worry about it. After 5 glasses you'll be about perfect and the chances of a hangover slim.
