Hallelujah, thank you Jesus, good God-almighty we’re headed for the promised land.

At 30-years-old, hangover are nearly fatal. Well, not actually, but hell if it doesn’t feel like it. The obvious answer is drink less, but let’s be honest, ain’t nobody trying to do that. Thankfully however, there is a solution… or will be a solution.

Thanks to a man named David Nutt, director of the neuropsychopharmacology unit at Imperial College London, and his invention called “alcosynth.”

Very long and scientific story short, alcosynth gives you all those warm and fuzzy benefits of alcohol without all the physical damage on your mind, body, and soul. According to Guardian, we’re only five years away from this dream becoming a reality.

“We’re allowed to try it whenever we want,” Nutt told the Guardian. “We tested a lot of possible compounds to try to find which are most likely to work. It would be dishonest to spend millions of pounds on something when you haven’t a clue if it does what you want.”

Well, after decades of testing and research, Alcarelle, Nutt’s alcosynth brand, is nearly ready to hit the market.

“We think once we’re approved and on the market we are going to see an amazing and wonderful explosion of creativity,” Nutt’s business partner David Orren added. “The drinks industry employs really creative people.”

I’m sold.
