Alcohol is one of the most dangerous substances on the planet. Someone dies from alcohol use every ten seconds, and one night of binge drinking can take a huge toll on your immune system.

I just don’t understand how people get to a point where they are addicted to alcohol? From my experience it’s really not that addictive. I always get too sick to the stomach to even digest too much of it. What is the appeal?

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 .

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!

"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.

Iman Laloui Islam does not teach peace and kindness and it does not respect other religions. Look at the reply I gave freedom fighter to see why I think this
Scorpion20012001 (3 months ago)
FreedomFighter 004 ok so first off the Qur'an tells Muslims to "not to make friendship with Jews and Christians" (5:51), "kill the disbelievers wherever we find them" (2:191), "murder them and treat them harshly" . That doesn't sound like a religion willing to make peace just because the other religion wants peace and we can see this today in real with the fact that Islam has not only the worst extremists of any religion but also the most and if it was just humans being bad then why is Christianity so much less violent today? It's because the problem is with Islam. If a man rapes a woman in a place that is under sharia law I very much doubt he will face any consequences if there aren't four witnesses with at least one of them being male because women are treated like shit in Islamic culture and this is why I call it sexist. Islam is the only religion that still punishes homosexuals to the extreme that they do, which can be killing them. Sure there are Christians who say homophobic shit but you don't see them making an actual law against homosexuals now days or if you do it's very rare but it's common place within Islam. Also I hate this Islamaphobia bullshit, homophobia is wrong because that is how the person is born and it says fuck all about their morals and what type of person they are but Islam isn't a sexuality you are born with it is a religion you are born into that brainwashes you into shitty morals, you can base somebody of their religion because it is their set of morals and personal beliefs which is a very good window into what a person is like.

who says we stone and torture people thats in some countries like saudi arabia that take islamic rules too far but thats becuz of their culture nothing to do with religion but becuz of their society that they live in. that doesnt mean every muslim tortures people. in fact ppl are toruring muslims because they think its a bad relgion when its a religion teaching kindess , being gratefulness, teaches how everyone should be equal. islam teaches how to not be judgmental. dont judge when you actually dont know what the religon actually is about. stop following people on the internet and immediately think its horrible religion. we mislims we dont judge people so why dhould you judge us please respect us like we are already respecting your religion
FreedomFighter 004 (3 months ago)
Scorpion20012001 No it's not contradictory, you're just not smart enough to understand. Too bad. How do you not get, that different situations or events require different rulings, they're not all the same. So it's fine to kill them in defensive only or when they propagate war but if they incline towards peace, so do you. Not rocket science buddy. Religion is not to be blamed for mistakes of human. Every human knows the difference between right and wrong, it's hard wired into our brains and society at large. People do things for there own selfish reasons or they hijack religion to advance their agendas. Again, different situations require different rulings, I just gave you the general principle but every case is treated individually and fairly. In the case of rape, yes they would need four witnesses for death to the culprit but if four isn't found, he'd potentially be imprisoned for example. Every case is different and it's judgement based on alot of things. Let's also not forget, with rape or any crime, the victim could also be lying and some innocent person is wrongly accused. Evidence is key in Islam. And so what if Islam is homophobic, all major religions are. The world is Islamophobic, you don't see us whining about it, so I don't get what's your big deal with it. However, you treat each homosexual as you treat any heterosexual, with kindness and respect (Islam teaches you this by the way). What people do, wells that's not Islam's fault.

There are several tips for giving up alcohol quickly Try to eat food while you are drinking - this cuts down the amount you drink. Take a break from drinking. Keep track of how much you drink, then you know if you are cutting down. Set goals - don't make them too difficult at first. Pick one or two days or every week when you will not drink . Next, try to stop drinking for one week per month. (I discovered these and why they work on Adoette Drink Plan site )
Con Cong (2 years ago)
One year and one week sober as of tomorrow. After 35 years of drinking (the last 25 real hard) I am finally sober. Thank FUCK it's all behind me. Some people here are treating alcohol lightly but you're visiting this site so smth is on your mind. I couldn't stop but drank my body to a standstill/ into submission and that wasn't easy to do. Alcohol is a depressant people. If you have enough of it over a long period of time, your thinking becomes warped. You make awful decisions and can't keep a relationship going. Alcohol became my 'mistress' and any lady that came along always came second. If you can drink socially then good luck to you. If you're falling into bed drunk every night then get ready for some real dark times ahead. I come from a European country and ended up in a South East Asian country where a very decent beer costs 25p a bottle. A bottle of spirits can be had for 2 pounds. I've visited 33 countries and wish that I'd done it without alcohol. What a waste of a life is all I can say but I'm going to make the best of whatever time I have left. If only I'd known years ago that you don't need alcohol to enjoy yourself. Good luck to everyone who has stopped or who wants to stop. I highly recommend sobriety... at least for me.

important message hopefully people acknowledge that it's not productive. I've beenon and off weed and alcohol so turned to alcohol exclusively sometimes . I realized it just frustrated me because I mostly didn't like the effects but I was desperate for a substance similar to weed somewhat. I realize now that it's better to just not use either until I can be self sufficient and live in a legal marijuana state. I drink different herbal black and green teas often to help me feel better
