Happy Friday! Someone's Finally Invented Hangover-Free Alcohol

It's called 'alcosynth'. Get excited.

We live in a world that invented Pokemon Go, flying metal boxes that can transport human beings from one country to another and policies that somehow make Donald Trump look palatable to several thousand people.

Yet we cannot come up with booze that doesn't make us want to rip our own eyes out after a heavy drinking session.

Hangover-free alcohol. IMAGINE that for a second. Got it clear in your mind? 


'Alcosynth' has been developed by Professor David Nutt.

The drink is a derivative of benzodiazepine - commonly used to treat anxiety disorders.

It can be formulated to limit its strength, so drinkers only get mildly sozzled, instead of woke-up-in-the-bath-phone-smashed-to-pieces-where-the-hell-is-my-Grandma-wasted.

Experts believe it could eventually completely replace alcohol and potentially save thousands of lives.

It could still be several years before it reaches bars in the UK, and work in a similar way to E-cigarettes - though in both cases, the full effects of using the booze and cigarette replacements are not known.

Until then, remember to drink one glass of water between every alcohol drink, and carry drinking as you were.

What? It's Friday...
