I wish I had a surefire cure for hangovers. I've never had one, no matter how much I drank. I don't know if it's good genetics or coming from a history of drunks, but my brother and I just don't get hangovers.

I didn't get them until about age 35. It turns out suffering consequences can change behavior patterns quite quickly.

1) Don't drink
2) If you drink, don't drink too much
3) If you drink too much, try to drink a glass of water for every glass of beverage you have. Yes it is possible. No, I don't care how ridiculous you look doing that. You look way more ridiculous hugging the toilet the day after.
4) Do a J after drinking. I'm not a heavy drinker - not much of a drinker at all, but I need very little to get a bad hangover. If I do a J after drinking though - fresh a s a dasiy in the morning.

(3) This is key here, so fucking listen. Run the hottest bath you can tolerate while still relaxing in it. Soak. Sweat that shit out. Close your eyes. Shit, turn off the lights if you want. Chill in there for 20-30 minutes, longer if you can. Re-warm the water as necessary.
I did that after some wine and it ended terribly. Worst headache I've had in a long time, so I'm not so sure about the bath...

If I do a J when drinking, HOLY SHIT do I pay for it for the next few days.  Puts me to sleep if I don't first toss my biscuits.  It's one or the other!

Someone else suggested Burritos, and I second preparing against the problem before it starts. my past four years of college drinking was co-opted with about 10 dollars worth of food from Taco Bell. Avoided most hangovers this way.

Granted, this will also make you into a very fat man, so at your own peril.

and maybe I'll be the only one brave enough to admit it, a long hot shower and jerking off manually is usually a must if I'm hungover. It's not very enjoyable but it releases enough chemicals in the brain i guess to kill a headache.

A Bloody Mary, or two.

Take a painkiller before you go to bed. You'll wake up feeling like everything went better than expected.

That's similar to certain advice Kingsley Amis gave in his treatise "Everyday Drinking." No teetotaler, there, and a very good treatise on the Dionysian arts.

If I've sobered enough or haven't passed out on my bathroom floor or on my bed fully clothed I have a couple pints of water to combat that awful dehydration when I awake, then I wake my cravings kick in which combat the hangover, I'll have a lot of cold milk then a cup of tea (being English and all) then cook my glorious meal of toast, baked beans, fried eggs (fried in butter) then cover it all in an ungodly amount of cheese, it's so full of cholesterol it beats the shit out of my hangover. Then I enjoy a nice walk in the cool air which finishes it completely.

A Dude-friend advised me a long time ago to take extra vitamin B12 when the party's over and I won't feel so hung over... that and some tamales (sans sauce) seems to work.... 8)

I guess I've been lucky that the only times I've had a severe hangover was when I drank so much that I vomited.  That only happened three times, but man were those hangovers brutal!  And by then you're screwed and the only thing that'll make you feel better is time.

That said, one of my former work supervisors swore by this method for avoiding a hangover:

1.  As has been said, hangovers are caused primarily by dehydration (well, that and the consumption of alcoholic beverages which cause the dehydration).  If you're planning to go out drinking, during that day drink as much water, Gatorade, or other "hydrating beverage of choice" as you can tolerate--essentially you want to overhydrate yourself.  Of course, this won't work if your drinking plans are made at the last minute.

2.  After drinking and just before you go to bed, take two aspirin (i.e., not Tylenol or other painkiller) with a full glass (at least 8 ounces) of whole milk or half-and-half, especially if you think you won't get sick (i.e. vomit).  The aspirin helps with the pain, and the milk/half-and-half coats your stomach and decreases the chances you'll have to vomit during the night (or whenever you've chosen to try to sleep).  Needless to say, the key here is not vomiting because you'll simply void your stomach of the aspirin and milk/half-and-half.  And if you've already vomited, the odds are it's too late, but it can't hurt to try.

Disclaimer:  This new shit came to light long after I'd experienced my three hangovers, and I don't drink much or often these days so I've never tried it myself.

Another option is to determine which types of alcohol cause your worst hangovers, and stay away from them.  For example, I've never had even the slightest headache after drinking Jose Cuervo (tequila), but Jack Daniels and Crown Royal (whiskey) have always caused them.  And if my wife drinks even a little wine she gets horrible headaches almost immediately.  So choose your poison cautiously, and choose it well.
