    Is GHB an alternative to alcohol? I hear it feels the same but does it act the same in your body? Can you mix it with the substances you can/cant with alcohol?

    Also, where do you buy the stuff at? See Below:

    I searched.

    No-One is going to tell You where to acquire GHB. It is scheduled in the US and many other places.

    GHB acts on GABAnergic receptors (as does alcohol). It is this mechanism that makes GHB effective for alcohol withdrawal (see the archive for more info).

    It should not be mixed with other drugs which have GABAnergic action: Eg Alcohol, benzos and barbiturates. It should also not be mixed with other depressants (Eg opiates).

    ghb isnt exactly an alternative to alcohol, but it provides somewhat similar effects. they tend to be more chill-out than the typical loud-and-obnoxious effects of alcohol :p
    the only things that should really be avoided on ghb are the same as with alcohol, and of course alcohol itself
