    My advice is to keep busy throughout. They say that an idle mind is the devil's workshop and I agree.
    When you find something to keep you busy, your mind will rarely wander off to thinking about how good it feels to be under the influence.
    When you are idle on the other hand, getting high is all you will think of, and you eventually will.

    No matter what anyone says there is only one way to sober up, and that's with time. You just have to let your body do what it does and wait it out. There is no magic pill or solution to instantly get your head right.

    Take a cold shower no warm water. I use to go to a little creek in the town I live. It was the coldest water you can imagine. I could be drunk off my a$$ which was a lot. I would go dive in that water it shocked me out of a drunken state fast. I felt much better and some what sober.
