    Default My sherry experiment

    Over Christmas I decided to get drunk one night while hanging around with my family. Historically I have never been an alcohol lover, but these days I wonder if alcohol is necessary for social lubrication. I can't seem to enjoy people otherwise, that much is apparent. Weed is best, but there was none of that around, and even if there was my family is no-go in that respect.

    So I had a couple glasses of wine. First, I noticed a feeling from it almost immediately, just from tasting it. It could have been my imagination I suppose. But after a couple glasses I definitely did feel pleasantly buzzed. Later on I remarked to a friend that I always felt the wine buzz was somehow more crisp than that of beer or liquor, like my brain was being tickled at the stem or something. I pretty much chalked that up to imagination as well.

    Then I was reading about different drugs today here and coincidentally found out that wine has GHB in it. GHB apparently gets a bad rap because it is associated with date rape, but as a recreational drug, it seems to be better than alcohol in just about every way. I kinda wish it were legal. From what I can gather it is kind of like the average between alcohol and ecstasy and it really isn't toxic.

    GHB's steep dose-response curve means naïve users run the severe risk of falling asleep. When used lightly in recreational rather than stuporific or anaesthetic doses, GHB is a touchy-feely compound which typically induces deep muscular relaxation, a sense of serenity, and feelings of emotional warmth. Often it enhances emotional openness and the desire to socialise. Tactile sensitivity and the appreciation of music are enriched. Most remarkably, the moderate user may awake refreshed after a deep restful sleep: GHB appears temporarily to inhibit dopamine-release while increasing storage, leading to the brightened mood and sharpened mental focus of a subsequent "dopamine-rebound". GHB acts both as a disinhibitor and an aphrodisiac. Intensity of orgasm is heightened.
    My readings lead my to the two wines which contain the most GHB, sherry and vermouth. So I went and got some sherry. Unfortunately I can't stand the taste of this vile liquid. I hate all alcoholic drinks, and always have. This one is particularly disgusting. I couldn't drink more than and ounce or two. I actually did feel that very same effect that I mentioned above, though. That crisp, cranial drunk. I also felt it pretty much immediately upon my first sip, but again this all could be my imagination.

    I still wonder if there is actually enough GHB in wine for it to even matter. I doubt anyone knows much about this, but it could be interesting anyway. One can always go the home-synthesis route with GHB, but that's highly illegal and too much of a commitment for me. I used to do that with dextromethorphan and psilocybin mushrooms though (the former is actually an extraction, not a synthesis). Good times.

    Main question is, do you think wine, particularly ones like sherry and vermouth, have a noticeably different effect, and if so do you think it is because of the GHB?

    What exactly did I ever do to you? You're lucky I ignore you on this forum, I really wouldn't if I didn't think it were mean and pointless. But I do think your posts suck. So leave me alone, and I'll do the same in return.

    GHB is something that is in our brains naturally, GHL is what people take to get fucked up(which breaks down to GHB, but is much more potent than GHB). Personally i dont think that GHL should be legal, as its quite dangerous, especially when combined with alcohol or other stuff(which people will do) or when overdosed on(and its easy to OD with, not only because the amount of GHL is really hard to determine if you buy it from street, but also because the dose between normal dose and OD dose is quite small). I doubt that wine has enough of GHB to give any effects.

    Tell us how you really feel tee he he

    (I'm just joking, I don't want you to get in troublez )

    Anywho, wr to the OP, I have no idea if there's that much, and I honestly don't really wanna know

    I don't think I feel what your talking about with the tingling. But maybe I'll try to pay attention next time.

    However, I do know what you mean about alcohol being a necessary lubricant for some social occasions. I feel like that too sometimes. :/
