Why Do We Think Booze Is Healthy?
Blake Gossard

Anyone who thinks that alcohol is healthy is likely to have a problem already. Needing to justify an obviously bad habit is a sign of dependency or even addiction.

No other drug kills more people directly or indirectly. Unfortunately our society portraits alcohol as something that should be used [in moderation].

How many people would think that a TV commercial advertising cocaine is a horrible idea? But a more addictive drug (legal one) is perfectly fine for you. As a matter of fact if you drink enough you are likely to be transported to a party with super models and you might as well become a rock star for the night.

The reality is that you are likely going to be transported to a hospital. Slowly but surely alcohol will kill you. At least it doesn’t discriminate. And your nights eventually will become very lonely.
