unlike lushmitter, i don't drink to get drunk (that's just a sometimes enjoyable side-effect). i drink because i enjoy the various things i imbibe (wine and whisky, chiefly), which are very much affected by the amount of actual alcohol they contain. so unless they can invent something that doesn't affect the taste, count me the fark out.

Still no cure for feeling like shiat when you see what you woke up next to?

Possible treatment for Alcoholics?

Take 2 of these, you'll feel drunk for 3hrs. Then take the red pill when you need to get to work.

Neuroscientist David Nutt published a piece in the Guardian today detailing a line of research he hopes

As I am sure everyone on Fark.com can understand, a scientific breakthrough that will significantly reduce the population's liver damage is something worthy of the very highest journals that exist.  They would fight to the bitter end to publish this groundbreaking work because that's what the highest journals aspire to be -- the place where world changing research is published.

This guy didn't publish in any of those high tier journals.  He didn't publish in the middle tier journals.  He skipped the low tier journals.  He even went past the scientific journals that will publish pretty much anything as long as it's actual science.  This guy "published" this in the Guardian.

I'm not attacking David Nutt, he has the credentials.  But call me when he publishes this in an actual science journal.  Until then, I can tell you about "lines of research" that scientists "hope" will cure every single ailment on earth.

That's right: take a pill when you're done being drunk and avoid that nasty headache entirely

The people that want to take our drugs away will hate this.

I drink alcohol for the effects only - this is an awesome idea as far as I'm concerened

Sounds expensive.  And more like a pharmaceutical than a booze.

Somehow I'm still able to get away with drinking without any nasty side-effects. I got blackout drunk off of...what was at my last coherent count 10 shots of Wild Turkey, woke up the next morning in my car (still in the parking lot) feeling absolutely fantastic. I don't know what I'm doing wrong.

As an alcoholic I can definitely say, no, that won't work for me. I would start out sobering up before the drive to work then in the parking lot before I clicked in then being "drunk" on lunch hour then just fark it all day long.

It's not the alcohol per se that is bad just the fact that if I start becoming intoxicated it's difficult for me to stop. Pretty much any addict is like this.

Not saying this is wrong for anyone else but it wouldn't work for me.

but I like getting drunk and puking on my new shoes. then waking up and finding a dead hooker in my bed ..oh wait she aint dead shes just um ill brb.

You probably don't piss away every drop of water and electrolyte in your body. Aside from that, the only times I've had hangovers in the last decade were from sugary cocktails, those screw my head up in weird ways. (I'm sure getting hammered off of those excessively sweet triple IPAs and Belgian quads is similarly bad.)

I wonder if this drug will get mixed with coke or meth to make a new all-in-one party drug in a flask?
 
2013-11-11 09:24:41 PM
I would like to take this opportunity to appeal to whomever may still have them. Please, please delete those embarrassing fark party pictures of me. I can't take the stress of knowing they are still out there waiting to ruin my possible future in politics.

Real men drink and go to work for 10 hours and do it again.

I agree with you. Being an alcoholic isn't just about drinking. It's about the difference in how you feel sober vs how you feel intoxicated. When it came time to work, you'd have to make the conscious decision to no longer feel drunk. Even if you take the antidote, you'll want to feel drunk soon after. You'll end up drinking a lot and taking the antidote every time the boss comes around.

wraith95: Isn't that what weed is for?


Yep! That and you get to enjoy your food rather than hurl it up, and you don't have to apologize for shiat you don't remember in the morning. Same neurological effects without the various consequences that stop you from getting drunk and acting a fool? Terrible idea!
 
2013-11-11 09:58:44 PM
So, they mean something like GHB or GBL. It already exists. Without any hangover, it can become really easy to do it way too often. I'm just glad it got hard to get, otherwise I'd have been in a bad spot several years back.

Came here to say that.  Seriously, you want chemicals derived specifically by man to alter your mind?  Try LSD...

I've forgotten what a hangover is like since I switched from booze to cannabis 30 years ago.

Read that Guardian piece earlier and it was all shenanigans. Guy came off like a quack, I don't care what degrees he holds.

This won't increase the amount of DUI crashes.  Nope.

I would nearly stop all alcohol consumption if I could smoke a joint without risking my entire career.  Our drug laws in this country are completely asinine.

I used to shoplift tapes like a mother farker from the BX on Kirtland AFB and occasionally a Target off-base. Started with CDs when they came out, but I started to chicken out a little bit when I hit 18. 20 years later, I still shoplift from time to time, but now it's just a matter of pinching pennies at the grocery store.

If God doesn't exist, then it would be necessary to invent him.
