We’ve all been there. Wake up in the morning LOOKING like P Diddy. Or this cat.

No amount of water, paracetamol or vada pao seem to give you any relief. And getting on with the day just does not seem like an option.

Well, the heroes over in Sydney, Australia have the answer to all your hangover woes. The treatment at this clinic can get you up and about in as little as half an hour by fitting you with a drip which will pump a ‘vitamin cocktail’ into your blood stream.

However, this angelic service does not come cheap. A 30-minute cure will put a $140 ( 6,778) dent in your wallet and the hour-long emancipator, that does come highly recommended for a healthier recovery than with fast food binging, will be a whopping $200 ( 9,683). And we’re betting good money that on New Year’s day they’ll be making good money.

So if you’re one of us perpetually-broke people, you may either want to go easy on the drinking as you grow older, or simply burrito yourself in a blanket and try the ancient drink-coffee-and-stay-in-bed recovery method till the end of time.
