Drunk Without Alcohol?
Do you often find yourself hungover? Do you drink alcohol frequently? Do you wish that you could control your drinking better? Lots of people struggle with hangovers, not just alcoholics-though people with alcohol dependency no doubt have to deal with them more. So wouldn't you like to say goodbye to hangovers forever? What if that also meant there was no more potential for drunk driving? It sounds like science fiction, doesn't it? Well, with new science that's being developed, hangovers may become a thing of the past. By taking a good time pill that mimics how alcohol acts on the human brain, it could soon be possible to have fun as if you were drinking, then take a sobering-up pill that lets you safely drive home with no consequences.
The pill could apparently work by targeting a specific neurotransmitter in the brain, which is also how alcohol affects the human mind. The neurotransmitter is called GABA. The lead researcher, Dr. David Nutt, told BBC Radio 4 "We can mimic the effects of GABA using drugs that are more selective and much less toxic than alcohol. And also, because they’re drugs and work on a receptor directly, we can have an antidote."
