Graphene Can Increase Alcohol Potency

Graphene is an amazing new substance, called a nano-material, made from graphite shavings.  Its promise to revolutionize everything from consumer electronics to car batteries has created quite the buzz.  The substance has been termed the “new silicone.”  

According to one article , researchers also discovered another interesting property of graphene when they filled a graphene lined container with water and the evaporated through the container as if it was not even there.  After they tried mixing the substance with various other materials, the researchers put it in Vodka.  They water quickly evaporated, leaving only the alcohol and thus increasing its potency.

I have been writing as long as I can remember, even carrying tattered notebooks with me through the streets and strip clubs of New Orleans, in the midst of my heroin addiction. I lived a life saturated in heroin until Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans, leaving me to fend for myself, eventually facing my demons and coming face to face with my addiction. I have been clean for five years, and since then I have become a mother, graduated college, and started a writing career. I have a B.A. in Mass Media Communication, with a minor in Journalism. I have also written one published book, Through Both Hell and High Water: A Memoir of Addiction and Hurricane Katrina, which tells the story of those dark days I spent in New Orleans after the storm, battling with addiction amidst a natural disaster. I am the blogger and news curator for RecoveryNowTV, and I love sharing the stories of the world, as well as my own personal journey, with my readers. I hope that my words can touch others out there, struggling with addiction.
