If you know the terror of waking up with a hangover before discovering who you messaged the night before, the best option would probably be to leave your handset at home-or at least get a cheap feature phone that won't get you into as much trouble. As Facebook writes, the feature may be useful "If you accidentally send the wrong photo, incorrect information, or message the wrong thread".

Even Gmail gives users a few seconds to "undo send". It doesn't actually send the email until it passes that buffer time. So don't forget to double-check your messages-and keep your thumb as far away from the "send" button as possible-before sending something you might regret.
