Honest Bender: Let me get this straight... You expect addicts to decide not to abuse their chemical of choice based on consequences? If consequences were all it took, there would be no addicts.

A friend of mine has the mutation that this drug is trying to express. Even one shot of alcohol causes him to go straight into hangover mode, with no buzz to appreciate. So it's not just about increasing the consequences, it's about taking the enjoyment out of it as well.

Smgth: Addicts are hardly going to stop because what they're doing is all of a sudden even more unpleasant then usual...if the effects of what they were doing were enough to put them off, almost no one would be addicted to ANYTHING! Isn't the definition of an addict 'someone who repeatedly does something DESPITE the myriad adverse effects'?


Adverse side effects happen when an addict STOPS taking their addictive drug of choice.
Intended effects occur when they ingest their addictive drug of choice.

I know it's not a vaccine, but doesn't Antabuse basically do the same thing?

And if this vaccine works how long before people will want to give it to their kids?
