BRITISH scientists are trying to develop a liquid drug that gives the pleasure of alcohol but without the harm and which comes with an antidote.
This means you could get sloshed at lunchtime, take a pill at 1.55pm and go back to work. Or sober up at midnight to drive home.
This wouldn’t work, of course, if you decided you were having such a good time you didn’t want to stop.
“I’ll just have one more for the road.’’
“One more and you won’t find the road.’’
Or if it didn’t quite make sense to think you had spent £20 getting into this state so why spend another £2 to get out of it.
And can you imagine the shock of suddenly becoming sober while everyone else was still drunk and talking complete rubbish?
