    Well, if it can make people think they can fly it can make them think they can do without drinking :O

    If it works, great, but it does sound a bit iffy to be replacing one dangerous addiction with another dangerous drug.

    If the definition of "sober" is broadened to cover "under the influence of a hallucinogenic drug" :)

    When used correctly, one can find great insight when under the influence of these powerful drugs.imo

    I suppose anything is possible. However, IMO I don’t think there’s a magic “one size fits all” cure for anything.

    So the patient won't know if the pink elephants are caused by the booze or the acid?
