    Anyway, I don't really have problems with hangovers, but I'd like to be able to drink more before getting drunk.
    The raw egg wouldn't be able to withstand the hydrochloric acid in your stomach long enough to provide any sort of coating. And the alcohol in your stomach is not the problem, it's when it enters the rest of the digestive system and bloodstream that's the issue. Coating your stomach wouldn't serve much purpose. Eating high protein food and spreading out your drinks is the only way you'd be able to improve drinking more. If you eat quite a bit you can slow the absorption for several hours or more. Also the faster you drink, the quicker your BAC is going to skyrocket, getting you drunk faster. Just eat a big meal first and pace yourself and you should be okay. The liver can only filter one drink per hour so if you overdo it you're kind of f^cked no matter what preventative measures you take.

    "The biggest adversary in our life is ourselves. We are what we are, in a sense, because of the dominating thoughts we allow to gather in our head. All concepts of self-improvement, all actions and paths we take, relate solely to our abstract image of ourselves. Life is limited only by how we really see ourselves and feel about our being. A great deal of pure self-knowledge and inner understanding allows us to lay an all-important foundation for the structure of our life from which we can perceive and take the right avenues.

    Thanks, I do pace myself, but my sister-in-law's husband is Russian so you can see how that can be a problem =)
