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.
Dr. Samuel Ball of the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University (CASAColumbia) reveals the myriad effects alcohol has on your brain and body.

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?
it's the most destructive drug come on coordinating and perception on the brain. way to go America kill more of your people that's the way the American way should go. veterans who fight for your country feed them alcohol shit they only fight for your rights dumbass America
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 )
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.....
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!
Alcohol makes me sick every time I drink beer or shots.. When I smoke weed, it is an amazing experience everytime. Creative, thoughtful, happy, comedic, senses are enhanced ect. Alcohol is just poison. Fuck alcohol.
I don't like how drinking effects me and don't like the taste...so I stoped the first time I tried it...also I don't do drugs nor hash smoking...I like being sober...Why dulling your senses ? enjoy life
I drink almost 3 litres of vodka a week? Maybe 6 shots in each cup..2/3 times a day.. Is that bad? Been doing this for almost 8 months.. I feel less stressed and don't over think much by drinking but I can see why binge drinking in one go is more harmful. I'm just hoping I'm not damaging my organs
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.
They've been saying for years that whisky was affecting my memory..they've been saying for years that whisky was effecting my memory..they've been saying for years that whisky was effecting my memory..someone even said it yesterday..or was it last week?..did your mother say it?..o she's my mother..i thought she was your mother...o you mean your my brother...what?..she's my sister!....I thought she was my wives mother!..then that means I'm your father...who was that woman in my bed this morning?..he was who?....he did what?...tell your mother I'm sorry about your father...and if you see your sister tell him I'll see him nest Friday..or was it last Friday?....ah....where the hell is my bottle of whisky it's the only thing that keeps my mind straight!
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.
"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.
ok I just got to say..... I watched this while I was drunk...and I gotta say, it's not half bad, I mean, everything he said was true but it has been like that for some good 4 years straight and c'mom, men who wants to live after their 60's, we gotta die of something... am I right? :D Really thinking about changing alcohol for some pot
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.
I drink every week and I love alcohol but I really can't imagine being addicted to it, just the thought of binge drinking or drinking everyday just makes me wanna throw up. Most people have to be really troubled or depressed to become an alcoholic.
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.
YOU ARE JUST STATING SINS. THOSE ARE BAD SINS. ALLAH SAYS WE CANT DO ANY OF THOSE THOSE ARE THE UNFORGIVABLE SINS. ALLAH SAYS BE WHO YOU WANT BUT DONT JUDGE WHAT PPL CHOOSE TO BE. YOU DONT EVEN UNDERSTAND ARABIC. ISLAM ISNT BAD SOME PEOPLE JUST DONT FOLLOW THE RULES BUT MANY PEOPLE DO. MANY TORTURE MUSLIMS BECASUE THEY THINK WE ARE BAD. DONT FOLLOW PEOPLE MAYBE IF YOU CONVERTED TO ISLAM YOU WOULD SEE HOW BEAUTIFUL IT IS. PLEASE DONT FOLLOW PEOPLE WHO HAVE KNOW IDEA ABOUT ISLAM PLEASE GO SPEAK TO AN ACTUAL MUSLIM AND HELL TELL YOU. ITS SAY TO NOT KILL, TO NOT RAPE, TO NOT HURT PEOPLE ALLAH EVEN SAYS DONT HURT SOME ONE FEELINGS SO WHY WOULD HE SAY YOU CAN KILL. ALLAH CREATED US SO WHY WOULD HE SA
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
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.
Floyd More I see what u mean. I like tk drink my ass off on my free time. I have times when I would sit at home and drink beer for 3 days straight. But im also a truck driver, so i have to keep that shit in check. There's nothing wrong with alcohol. It's one of the best things on earth! But it just makes me scratch my head when folks lose their jobs over it
My best friend died of alcoholism she started having problems with her stomach started coughing up blood and she continued to drink she didn't realize that she had an addiction because she had gone to mandatory AA meetings because she got a DUI twice within one week but the story she heard she didn't feel like she had hit rock bottom well I guess her Rock Bottom is she's going to live now
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 )
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.
Con Cong don't take notice of these negative comments that some people bring up in here. These people just want attention and one day they'll understand how wrong they were by sending to a brave and most likely a nice person like you these disrespectful comments. Continue with the new life style that you've brought up upon yourself! Good job!
Con Cong it's sad that some people were really mean and hurtful in their comments to you. I hope that you are still sober. I know this post is old, but I'm sending you vibrational love and support on your sober journey.
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
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a problem with getting and maintaining an erection that’s firm enough to have sexual intercourse. All men have trouble getting an erection from time to time, and the likelihood of this problem increases with age. If it happens to you often, though, you may have ED.
Viagra is a prescription drug that can help men with erectile dysfunction. For many people, romance means candlelight, soft music, and a glass of wine. The little blue pill, Viagra, can be part of this picture, but only if you drink small or moderate amounts of alcohol.
