Thirty years and hitting the sauce, not the best of odds, but hey, go for it. (I was lucky, back mid-Eighties after twenty years of hard drinking; about the only thing that hadn't been adversely affected was my liver. Go figure.)
I've actually heard that before, quite surprising. Of course, I've also heard the other side.. with the stabbing pains and the doctors warning "drink again and its curtains for you buddy".
If you can provide for your physical needs, then it's just an uncomfortable state of mind. If your situation is worse, then it gets really annoying, trending to flat-out bad, going by personal experience.
Like many a tool, if what these guys have found gets used, some of the uses will be ungood. But for someone caught up in a situation that by most lights just needs for them to apply a little extra oomph, might be a good thing - with consent, of course.
Wise words for sure. Personally I'm all for (voluntary) wire-heading. If a wee current applied judiciously can assist in some cases the next logical step would be a small device to monitor and manage the 'dosage' and at that point it's probably ready to be of use for the public. We've done pretty well with the SSRI/SNRI series of drugs but it would be nice to have another way of approaching mental health problems and especially if it has the potential to have lesser or no side-effects.
