Alcohol is a neurotoxin that deprives oxygen and other nutrients to your brain.

Allaah says in the Quran (interpretation of the meaning): “They ask you (O Muhammad) concerning alcoholic drink and gambling. Say: In them is a great sin, and (some) benefits for men, but the sin of them is greater than their benefit” [al-Baqarah 2:219] The harmful and evil effects of alcohol are well known to all people, to knowledgeable and ignorant alike. Among the harmful effects of alcohol is that which was mentioned by Allaah (interpretation of the meaning): “O you who believe! Intoxicants (all kinds of alcoholic drinks), and gambling, and Al‑Ansaab (stone altars for sacrifices to idols, jinn, etc), and Al‑Azlaam (arrows for seeking luck or decision) are an abomination of Shaytaan’s (Satan’s) handiwork. So avoid (strictly all) that (abomination) in order that you may be successful. 91. Shaytaan (Satan) wants only to excite enmity and hatred between you with intoxicants (alcoholic drinks) and gambling, and hinder you from the remembrance of Allaah and from As‑Salaah (the prayer). So, will you not then abstain?” [al-Maa’idah 5:90-91]

Lovely video content! Excuse me for butting in, I am interested in your opinion. Have you heard about - Saankramer Life Card System (do a search on google)? It is a great exclusive guide for learning how to stop drinking minus the hard work. Ive heard some incredible things about it and my good mate called Gray after a lifetime of fighting got astronomical results with it.

Thanks for the video content! Forgive me for the intrusion, I am interested in your initial thoughts. Have you considered - Saankramer Life Card System (erm, check it on google should be there)? It is a great one of a kind guide for learning how to stop drinking without the normal expense. Ive heard some incredible things about it and my friend at very last got cool success with it.

That's fine lets discuss the dangers of psychotic drugs being administered to school children because parents are too lazy to care about their nutritional needs and raise them on junk food in front of the TV instead of taking them out in nature daily. Not to say adults do not have problems too especially the morons that drink and drive. It is important to know risk factors and please do not think if something is prescribed or legal that it is not dangerous.

Smoking and drinking may be dangerous to your health , let me give you an example... or two ... or three or more WHY IT'S NOT you get the point... https://www.liquor.com/articles/111-year-old-man-proves-whiskey-is-the-key-to-a-long-life/#gs.P6aB_yw ( His secret in his own words " GOD and CIGARS " ) his diet consisted of non organic ice cream , non organic milk , non organic canned soup and other assorted food items , the truth is often SHOCKING and of course non organic whiskey and cigars. He was quoted as saying " I never mess around with credit cards " in other words NO MENTAL STRESS , he lived in a small home everything was paid for drove an old truck , and loved his cats , that's how you get to 111. https://lordsofthedrinks.com/2015/01/18/queen-mother-elizabeth-a-heavy-drinker-who-lived-to-see-101-years/ ( also a smoker ) https://vimeo.com/5514672 metro.co.uk/2012/01/19/nanny-state-warnings-are-rubbish-says-man-who-drinks-40-pints-a-day-290692/ https://www.sott.net/article/282019-The-oldest-people-on-Earth-are-all-smokers http://frank-davis.livejournal.com/123363.html http://www.telegraph.co.uk/good-news/2016/02/11/this-107-year-olds-secret-to-a-long-life-four-bottles-of-red-win/ http://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/real-life/true-stories/this-bar-owner-is-awesome-i-live-like-someone-whos-60-years-old-i-go-out-a-lot/news-story/3daaf3c88d2fc233f352eb0890772fc6 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ZA8Ha4TwbA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FMYfcT5T9Hs http://nationalpost.com/news/world/does-an-italian-village-filled-with-cigarette-smoking-centenarians-hide-the-secret-to-long-life http://www.foxnews.com/us/2015/08/04/110-year-old-woman-drank-three-beers-and-shot-every-day-for-years.html John Adams age 90..... started smoking at age 8 https://www.thedailymeal.com/surprising-drinking-habits-our-founding-fathers this is at a time 0 anti life biotics were around 0 vaccines , 0 pharmaceutical drugs 1700's and 1800's NO WONDER he lived so long lol... btw he did after all get 1 shot .... back then 1 was probably the max they had ......Adams was inoculated ( small pox ) and spent three weeks in the hospital, suffering headaches, backaches, knee aches, gagging fever, and eruption of pock marks , that nearly killed him , I'm sure he learned his lesson well with vaccines after that episode. https://lordsofthedrinks.com/2014/09/22/winston-churchill-war-politician-that-stopped-the-nazis-but-never-stopped-drinking/ ( heavy drinker / smoker ). and to finish it off..... http://www.collective-evolution.com/2014/05/02/this-122-year-old-woman-has-the-most-important-secret-to-a-life-of-longevity/ Longevity is NOT what you think. The last article will explain all ... let me give you a hint , NO MENTAL STRESS is key . The Chinese call it CHI ... life force. The body mind connection . ps. Avoid pharmaceutical drugs , street drugs , vaccines , and finally obesity to complete the picture . I would say anything 200 years or newer in medicine is detrimental to the human body . Allopathic medicine has a future in bone mending / trauma care / a hand full of surgeries , that's about it , when it comes to the human immune system they are absolutely clueless .

Steve J (6 months ago)
I've stopped my binging for the most part years ago, I've been a daily drinker for 23 years for the most part. Yes, I've had problems from drinking but the grey area is that they don't mention that true alcoholics, have bad sleep habits, bad eating habits if they eat at all, substitute other drugs to stay sober and function. Why is that? Blame it all on the Alcohol! I should be a case study, because my memory is getting better with age even after all the years of my drinking, and like a person quoted prior "my grandparents died from alcohol". Nope! I doubt it, yeah my grandmother just recently passed because my family took her scotch away from her, 2 weeks later, she gone! Yet, my grandfather is still drinking his scotch and still alive 🤔. People, form your own realities amd live your lives! You can be as sober as newborn and get hit by a garbage truck at 21 when you could've been at a bar having some fun. When did the world end? Nobody gave me that memo. Just say Fuck It and Live!

Alcohol is just one of the example of power corruption in our world. Back in 90s, no one believe that smoking could kill you because Philip Morris is a strong corrupted corporation and brainwashed people's mind to think that smoking is safe.

Thank you Allah for teaching not me to do this. It is only to protect ourselves. Yet, people will hate Islam. Gambling is bad, alcohol is bad, drugs is bad, mistreating orphans is bad and this is exactly what Islamic values are.
Allah is nothing more than an imaginary God you people created from christianity.

"Drugs and alcohol can bring you to the present, but it is a distorted, false present, a defiled present, a diminished present, and it will cost you in one way or another. It is just a very powerful and dangerous form of fool’s gold."-an excerpt from "The Present" on *the truth contest site* (google it). It is time to stop taking the short cut that only takes you part way there; go all the way home. That book teaches you how to find the truth and live in the present completely. It gets right to it.

There's no such thing as moderation. Don't drink at all. Alcohol is a disgusting, destructive substance not only to oneself but to others. It makes people aggressive and if not aggressive, foolish. Most people are slaves to alcohol.
