In reply to Gamma Hydroxy Butyrate., posted by paul on May 18, 1999, at 16:36:49

I am pleased to see a moderate response to my post.

I agree with Torrey in her assessment of the media hype surrounding GHB- extreme cases of senseless abuse and excess are publicized while the vast majority of benign, sensible use is what we don't see in the headlines-- for the very reason that anything done sensibly and moderately is not attention-getting.

Certainly an image of the horrors associated with alcohol abuse- automobile accidents, "Animal House"-style parties, homeless alcoholics and belligerent drunkards- would not be effective in an effort to have it banned and have it deemed off-limits in terms of scientific study. The reason is that we all know that the vast majority of the population uses it responsibly.

I have never taken GHB directly, but have only taken gammabutyrolactone. My experience with it has been benign and somewhat enjoyable. I certainly don't mix alcohol or other depressants with it. As with alcohol intoxication (for me at least), it is fairly easy to get a feel for one's limits, as there appears to be threshold between feeling good and feeling bad, creating a disincentive to ingest excessive amounts.
