Scientists are developing a drug which can make you feel drunk without any of the health risks or hangovers.

The revolutionary new drug is being hailed as the e-cigarette for booze as it gives the feelings of intoxication and pleasure but without damaging the body or the same level of addiction.

Apparently, the new drug will also have an antidote, so the 'drug drinkers' can take another drug that will cancel out the effects, meaning they'd be safe to drive.

It is being developed by former Government drugs advisor Professor David Nutt - however the team at Imperial College London can not get funding for the drug. Shockingly, the drinks industry is not too keen on it.

However Professor Nutt explained that this was key to help alcoholism. He explained to BBC's Today that 10 per cent of drinkers become addicted, and that around one and a half million people are killed every year by alcohol.

One of the obvious problems with the drug compared to the e-cigarette however is the social aspect. While smokers can still carry on the learned action of smoking a cigarette with an electronic one, taking a pill is not the same as sitting with a glass of wine.
