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.

Owners of a Toronto bar are asking for help from their community following a string of recent break-ins.
Triple A Bar, located at 138 Adelaide St. E., launched a GoFundMe this week after reportedly being broken into for the third time.
The popular location took to Instagram on Wednesday to show the broken windows, doors, and other damages that the building had endured.
The fundraiser, which has already raised over $5,000, aims to help the restaurant get back on its feet after a difficult year.
"After this last break in (and hopefully it will be the last - this is our third) we had many reach out to see how we are, offering help, and some had even suggested starting one of these for us," an excerpt from the GoFundMe reads. "We are not sure what the future holds, but we are optimistic and are trying to hold on."
