Have you ever vaped alcohol ?

Randomly browsing youtube this morning I came across a review of a thing called a "Vaportini" .. A glass device which uses a candle to warm up alcohol which you then inhale via a provided glass straw.

Tried it? I want one, seen them for sale in CH?

Some people say it's great, some people say it's the work of the devil..

I expect you could knock one up easily enough using some laboratory glassware if you really wanted to; but who's that desperate?
Why not simply drink your booze out of a glass like the rest of us, less risk of burning yourself!

Re: Have you ever vaped alcohol ?

Sure, a great way to get alcohol into the brain without actually drinking it. Sounds great, but it's only for the lightweights - for the ultimate fast reaction why not just inject directly into a vein?

There was a fad a few years ago, young people were "eyeballing" alcohol. Pouring it into their eyes!!

Re: Have you ever vaped alcohol ?

I believe it's not about desperation really, one could simply buy ethanol if that was the case .. and stick in your eye or inject it up your bottom.

I see it more as a fun thing to bring out at a party, no?

Occasionally, it's medically indicated. http://www.nbcnews.com/id/21219366/n...ng-vodka-drip/

Re: Have you ever vaped alcohol ?

Hm. I can honestly say that I have some experience in inhaling alcohol, as we used to do it at parties with university friends back home. We didn't have any of these fancy devices though, all we did was heating up the sauna to 100 degrees, get in, and pour pure vodka on the hot stones. We once emptied a liter of vodka we were five in there.

It might sound like an urban legend, but it actually works. We all got totally s**tfaced within 10 minutes. Four of us made it to the bar, one was left behind as he was unable to stand straight. In the future we learned the lesson and poured less..

It's good fun, but I wouldn't do it too regularly or too often. It's quite a drastic rise to the head and you kind of miss out on the social part of it as you go from 0 to 100 within minutes (and everybody knows how intelligent discussions get past a certain point...)

Re: Have you ever vaped alcohol ?

It's cheaper if you do it like this. Equipment readily available, no special skills required. And it works , trust me on that one...

Hah I've never even heard of this or thought of ever doing it... as patently awful as it sounds it could provide some laughs on the next ski trip if only a modest amount of booze is used..

I can share that for a smaller private sauna, with 4-5 seats, 2-3 dl of pure vodka should be enough. In order to get the maximum effect, it should not be the first intake of the evening - we usually warmed up with a few shots before (one shot for you, one for me, aaaaand one for the sauna!). Remember that in the sauna, as you sweat, the intake of alcohol generally hits much faster and stronger.

The first time when we poured 1 liter, we all crawled out and one of us hit his head against the shower wall...

BUT: sure, it's all laughs and fun, but please be cautious and it's better to start carefully and not go hard - things can get dangerous with the hot stones in there. And always remember to only pour pure vodka and no left-overs from drinks or other cocktails as it can terminally damage the sauna equipment!

Re: Have you ever vaped alcohol ?

Hi there

As the rate of absorption seems far faster than the usual boring way (drinking it ) I would want to know what's the equivalent of "too much" when inhaling... when you drink alcohol and you abuse it, your body has some defense mecanism, such as vomiting, whereas with inhaling...

that apart, I guess that with a device like http://www.radbag.ch/vaportini-verda...en-von-alkohol , you can more or less control the quantity you're getting, unlike the vodka-sauna experience above :-)
