Varies: Hangovers are complicated. Some drinkers feel irritable because alcohol withdrawal causes the brain to be sensitive. Some drinkers are dehydrated or have depleted their minerals after moderate or heavy drinking. Some people feel poisoned because of additives in alcoholic beverages even when they do not drink to excess (e.g. Red wine). There are different ways to reduce each of these.

Don't drink: Hangovers happen when you drink more than what your metabolism can handle.

Don't drink so much: ...Next time. Nothing really helps, but you should stay hydrated (with water!), rest, and eat small frequent amounts. Drinking to excess can cause serious medical problems, besides being a sign of alcoholism.
