In reply to Within ALCOHOL may lie the answer, posted by Michael Bell on June 4, 2003, at 21:46:15

> This is my project: I am going to compile as much information as possible regarding the exact neurochemical and physiological effects of alcohol. Then I'm going to try and identify which drugs come closest to mimicking each of these effects. Theoretically, a cocktail of these drugs, in their right dosages, should prove really effective for SP. I know this is all conjecture and theory, but I tell you this - right there in my fridge are three cans of a substance that turns me into a the person I want to be. Please don't take this as an encouragement to drink. Alcoholism is a debilitating, deadly illness. But maybe there's a reason why alcohol hasn't lost its popularity after thousands of years...

Great points and awesome idea, but unfortunately to mimic the effects of alcohol you'd need a serotonergic drug, a dopaminergic drug, a GABAergic drug, a glutamate... inhibitor?, and who knows what else. Ah, tis sad indeed. Heck, even if you could make a non-odorous alcohol i'd be all for it. Then i could be a drunk and not have people know who i didn't want to know... okay not really.
They say that barbiturates were like alcohol in a pill. i doubt they were that similar though. Probably just stupifying and very relaxing.
It is my firm opinion that nothing good in this world is ever without a downside. There will never be a perfect soma. There will never be alcohol in a pill. There will never be... i better stop.
