> Why does everyone that supposedly die from GHB die at a club? I'm calling BS. Whatever that person took and "died from" was not GHB. You're WAY more likely to die from alcohol.
First of all don't get defensive because this so called wonderpill has problems associated with it.
Back in them days GHB was very easily and legaly obtained from certain shops in ever city in the UK, and it was phamaceutical grade stuff.
The guy dies because he mixed GHB with alcohol, its as simple as that.
The guy would also not have done such a thing had he not been HIGH on GHB because thats what it is, a HIGH.
This is why dosing needs to be done continually throughout the day because you come down from the drug very quickly.
And FYI the blood level required for respiratory arrest with alcohol is substantially higher (rediculously so) then with GHB, so your (you are more likely to die with alcohol) statement is a little silly, although i understand you being defensive.
By all means take it and enjoy it (truly i mean that), but it will NOT be your cure for social anxiety in the long term, and the withdrawal from it if you keep your bloodlevels of the drug at a continual level will be noticeable, but these are things you will find out in time.
Personally i think GHB as a drastic measure for performance anxiety would be spot on although the user would be inclined to do silly things at the peak, plus he would have to keep dosing which would make it problematic (if the performance was over a long period of time.)
As a long term measure, personally, i find it absurd that it has been prescribed.
