I know this sounds bumb but am I the only one who seems to get a buzz of near-beer (which is 0.5%)? It should be impossible I read, but I swear I feel it, and I can even rip nose hairs out of my nostrils like 5+ hairs at a time without flinching or feeling pain. I can't do that while sober, it's too painful, and I often take the opportunity while drink to trim my nose hair in this manner.

Can a placebo really increase my pain tolerance that much or is 0.5% actually enough to be psychoactive? I'm trying to not drink beer every day and I find this is helping so far either way.

How can it be a placebo if you know it isn't real beer? You have to believe it for it to work.

alcohol isn't the only psychoactive substance in beer, maybe you feel the alkaloids of hop

I was thinking maybe this is it too. It's not a strong buzz and it tends to make me a bit sleepy.

Most likely placebo, but if you're a small person with no tolerance it could be a mix of mild alcohol intake plus the placebo. I know when i first drank I was smash halfway through a beer

Could be that low doses of alcohol increase pain tolerance.

I dont see why it's impossible, people have been known to become intoxicated by drinking enough non alchoholic beer. They still have a tint bit of alcohol and i'd imagine you'll still feel it if you drink a ton, fast as hell, on an empty stomach. I remember reading about a woman who failed a breathalyzer after doing so. Women actually fell he effects of alcohol more strongly, size matters a lot as well and your genetics can influence it even further. There are definitely people who can get what you'd consider drunk off of just a single beer or two.
