As someone who gets brutal hangovers, I can attest to the fact that sometimes a fun night out is just not worth the morning after. The pounding headache, nausea and soul crushing anxiety that accompany a night of drinking are just plain brutal.
Enter alcosynths. Developed by Psychiatrist and neuropsychopharmacologist David Nutt, alcosynths are a synthetic replacement to alcohol that mirrors the positive effects of drinking without the negative aftermath.
On top of the absence of the hangover, alcosynths don't cause weight gain, heightened aggression, or digestion troubles, all of which are side effects associated with alcohol intake.
The catch? Alcosynths have a plateau effect, meaning after about four drinks, you won't feel increasingly drunk. Sadly, Nutt doesn't expect to have his product available to the public until 2050, meaning there are a couple more rough Sunday mornings in our future.
