Science in Seconds - Alcohol Substitute

Science in Seconds Know Everything RUMOURS - Alcohol Substitute Rheanna Sand: How many of us brought in the new year with the pop of a cork? How many of us suffered through the pouring of spirits, an overflow of ale, and woke up to a cry from the liver? And confetti in your underwear? I know at least a few. Drunkenness is one of the most ancient forms of mood alteration. It remains a staple in modern social interactions. Now, one crazy scientist from Imperial College of London has decided to rock the boat. Or maybe stop rocking it, depending on how you look at it. Professor David Nutt and his research group are looking at creating an alcohol substitute, a valium-like benzodiazepine that would replace ethanol in beer and wine. It would give you that same pleasant feeling of a light buzz, but would not let you get drunk. In other words, no matter how frat boy you wanted to be, you would only ever reach sassy librarian in any one sitting. Get this, the buzz could be eliminated by taking a pill. It would contain enzymes to breakdown the benzodiazepines, and quick. You could party like a rock star, pop a buzzkill pill, wait 20 minutes, and then drive home. Just think of the possibilities. Fights could be avoided, ankles could be saved, meals could be digested, and photos from the night before could be a reminder rather than a horrific surprise. No more hangovers, no more waking up in a pool of your own vomit, and no more accidentally sleeping with this girl. But then again, where's the fun in that?
