If you mean by "the same effects" will it kill you eventually, then the answer is yes. Unfortunately, if you have been experimenting with it in the time since you posted this question you might never get to read the answer because you are either dead already or on the way to the hospital, because wood alcohol is highly poisonous. Just because it says alcohol on the label doesn't mean it was made by Jack Daniels.
