Drunk Without Hangovers

It’s right around the corner, according to this article from the Independent.

Alcohol that makes you feel drunk without the coinciding hangover may be available within five years, according to researchers.

The synthetic alcohol, named Alcarelle, was created by Professor David Nutt – who believes it will change alcohol consumption, once it is regulated.

. . .

“We know where in the brain alcohol has its ‘good’ effects and ‘bad’ effects, and what particular receptors mediate that – Gaba, glutamate, and other ones such as serotonin and dopamine,” he said. “The effects of alcohol are complicated but… you can target the parts of the brain you want to target.”

Now if they can cure cancer, we can get back to smoking cigarettes.

  1. I don’t understand this. Half the fun of putting a big twist on is the self loathing you feel the next day.

  2. There’s even some better news that l just discovered off of the internet: Scientists have invented a version of alcohol that will prevent you from picking up anyone from a bar and taking them home to sleep with if you thought they weren’t attractive enough to sleep with if you sober. Bartender, give me a double shot of technology and hold the self-loathing embarrassment!

  3. Big Pharma would rather control cancer than find a cure. That way, they get you hooked an expensive prescription you’ll have to take to your grave!
