'Hangover' from what????

If you mean from alcohol...then it's a myth. Coz the cause of the hangover is not lack of oxygen but from the effects of ethanol in the body.

But if there is someother type of hangover then...sorila...  I dunno! ;D

100% O2 to cure hangover - never heard about it but the best remedy is to drink again ( a can of beer or a shot of the last drink you had ) the minute you wake up....heard it really works! ;)

hehee.. masih mabuk... then tambah narco... lagi mabuk.. end up, never surface :P

j/k

joke aside... (off topic)
i guess this is where the DIR comes in.

Just read on the net... rule 1-abort dive

if u r not feeling good, abort the dive. it's all about dicipline

"The DIR system is basically about attitude and values, not about equipment as many people think.

Diving is fun and should be done safely. "Safely" means that you don't take unnecessary risks - which brings us to one of the "rules" in the DIR system:

Option number one: "Don't Dive"

You always have the option to cancel the dive. Nobody can force you to dive, nobody but yourself. Maybe you paid good money for a boat dive but you are not feeling well or the boat crew doesn't seem to be competent. What do you do? You cancel the dive. It is tough but it's the right thing to do. As a DIR diver you have accomplished something because you did the right thing - even if it sucks and even if you lost money."

Hahaa..I know of at least an instructor who drinks until 5am. When I asked him what time's his first dive, he said he had to take students for OW1 at 8am. ;D ;D ;D >:(
