Apparently We’ll Be Downing Hangover-Free Alcohol In The Not Too Distant Future Universal Pictures

We've all been there before; you wake up on Sunday morning with a pounding headache, a churning stomach, a mind full of remorse, and an oath to "never drink again" - but what if we told you that soon enough you could have the same night out without the following-morning regret?

Well, prepare to make room in your fridges for an influx of Mimosas because, boy, do we have some boozy news for you! 

According to Imperial College Professor David Nutt, within 10-20 years we'll be having rowdy nights out without the fear of a hangover.

Although, he doesn't believe we'll be hangover free because of some newfangled additive in our alcohol - which is what I'm guessing you pictured - nope, instead he believes we'd have ditched alcohol, entirely - at least, the alcohol we know today. 

Instead, Professor Nutt says we'll have replaced grog with a synthetic alternative - alcosynth - which, is said to be hangover-free. 

Speaking to International Business Time UK, the Professor said that he expects we'll take on this alternative far sooner than expected. 

"In another 10 or 20 years, Western societies won’t drink alcohol except on rare occasions.

"Alcosynth will become the preferred drink, in the same way that I can see — almost within a decade now in the Western world — tobacco and cigarettes will disappear as they’re replaced by electronic cigarettes," he said.
