What exactly is Sober Shot? It’s sobriety in a half-ounce bottle, or so their marketing department claims. It’s said to detoxify your body from the alcohol and prevent hangovers, nausea, dehydration and feeling “funky.”
All these things are accomplished with four simple ingredients:
That’s it! These ingredients found at your local supermarket help you focus and give you mental clarity to “make better decisions,” all for the low price of $9.95.
For $10 you can buy a cure-all for drinking; sounds too good to be true. Aside from the testimonials found on the Sober Shot website, there’s no real research that proves that this half-ounce bottle can undo the consequences of drinking. The truth is that the only way to get rid of drunkenness, nausea and hangover is time. An even better way is to avoid drinking altogether.
This product gives alcoholics another excuse to drink. The thought of a small bottle undoing a whole session of drinking is unrealistic. That’s not going to stop an alcoholic from trying it. Convincing yourself that you can drink as much as you want without consequences is an indicator of a big problem that only alcohol rehab can address.
