It's been a long-known saying that drinking beer cures hangover. It is said that a hangover is your body craving for alcohol, so drinking a beer helps the body.

Is it true?

  • The problem is that many people making that claim (that I've seen) are chronic drinkers, and have a hard time separating hangover from withdrawal. – Is Begot Jul 10 '14 at 13:13
  • Welcome to Skeptics! Is your question "Does the hair-of-the-dog cure hangovers?" This question is a bit confusing as it stands, because the answer, as I understand it, isn't about beer or "cravings". Do you have a reference to someone making the claim? – Oddthinking Jul 10 '14 at 14:31
  • @Oddthinking oh, I didn't know about the "hair-of-the-dog". Since wikipedia answered my question, I guess I should delete this question? – Florian Margaine Jul 10 '14 at 14:34
