So, alcohol destroys neurons?
Zoologic21 (2 months ago)
Hah, nice title. Funnily enough the world seemed so focused on telling people what to do with themselves that they marginalized their focus on truly harmful products like alcohol and tobacco to tell the world that what was unprofitable to the owners of this country was bad for the rest of us.

Weed is one of the worst possible things someone with anxiety could put in their body, never once had a panic attack until I put that shit in my body. Ill stick to drinking beer in moderation.

You left out how you were joking and the reaction to alcohol is youre body saying dont drink or eat more of the item you’re consuming because it makes youre body work and and the symptoms are actually too teach you a lesson because because a human (which has good stamina) cant run well if the body is working to desrroy the alcohol do it makes you RUN more in efficient to get away from predators so the lesson is DON’T DRINK ALCOHOL

I can focus more precisely on alcohol, I remember I learned rangee-kutta and Shannon-Nyquist theorem proofs while drunk and remember The applications till date... It takes days to understand the complex differential/integral calculus in sober mind for me...

“Thinking clearly about almost nothing” my mom is an alcoholic and I watched this with my grandma, when that saying came up we both looked at each other and laughed because that’s the most accurate saying.

A tonne of endorphins are also released when you drink alcohol. That is why endorphin-blocking medications like Naltrexone work really well for people that have issues with drinking too much!
