Don't get it: Why don't you just prevent it. Avoid drinking so much that you get a hangover!

Moderation: You can start by not drinking more than 5 alcoholic drinks (of normal size) a night. No more than 3 in a 2 hour period. You also want to make sure you have had at least 5 cups of water & a full meal before you drink alcohol. Another thing that may help is to alternate your alcohol with water (beer, water, beer, water; for example). Stick to light alcohols, and to the same type (don't switch).

No cure: I don't believe there's a "cure" for a hangover. However, in my experience, drinking lots of fluid and taking nsaids such as Ibuprofen or Naproxen may help with symptoms, especially headaches.
