i have quit drinking but its so tempting to drink beer again because beer taste so good to me. and whenever i go to grocery store i always go to the alcohol section to see all the different types of beers they have and read about them. i've heard that consumption of alcohol lowers your vibrations which i don't want but is alcohol really that bad i want to hear your thoughts on this. i am underage i'm 17 but in some countries its legal to drink alcohol at young ages. i am a very responsible person when it comes to alcohol and quite aware i would never even think about getting into a car or drinking to much. and actually unlike most people i am very intuitive and speak directly from the heart when i have been affected by alcohol or at least i try to. i don't think i will drink to get drunk anymore i think that is alcohol abuse and i will only drink in moderation.
HMm why then do those same doctors recommend 1 drink a day. You are lost on this one buddy
YOU Jjudged the kid as wanting to be an alcoholic, YOU decided he should go look at dying people to thwart his desire to drink.
Drinking a beer now and then does not cause alcoholism, it is not even bad for you in anyway. He HIMSELF, if you read his post without just commenting, states QUITE CLEARLY he doesnt even want to get drunk. What he is worried about is bullshit stuff people like you say about low vibrations and liver disease etc, he just wants to know if its oke to have a beer now and then. The answer is YES.
There was no need for you to come in here and tell him to seek out the suffering and dying people to show him why he shouldnt drink excessivley, a decision HE HAS ALREADY CLEARLY MADE.
I am sorry for the loss of your borther, i am sure it was not fun. However he reaped what he sowed, and this young man already knows not to plant those seeds you spent so much time trying to scare him out of.
Funny how you also claim i am a "judger" yet to you i am "beneath contempt" can you say hypocrite 10 times as fast as you can?
you are not worthy of speaking to
worthy eh? there is more of that judgement you attack others for but seem to be allowed to do yourself. HYPOCRITE
I am sincerely glad that you are not here in the same physical location as am I. I have encountered people like you before and I know what you are. This unpleasant interaction with some creep on some computer somewhere is over.
AHH I see , so now you threaten me with physical violence, you must be a lightworker of the highest calibre. When will your judgement end, oh i know, at yourself, because you are doing everything right arent ya. threatening others and being hypocritical in your "beliefs"
Practice what you preach brother, or dont preach at all.
Well what do you expect One, the man just finished telling a story of how his brother died from excessive drinking, and what do you do, downplay it and shrug it off as nothing, just to try and contradict him and say how it's okay to drink. I mean come on...what's the matter with you.
It IS ok to drink alcohol, he even said himself docs dont know why some people get sick and some dont,
His personal experience sucks for HIM and other who have been through it, many other people have been through other hard stuff that they would freak out about in the same way, personal pride causes issues everytime.
Couldn't have said it better myself John Jancar.
I agree with Shaz. Thank you, Phylos, for sharing your brother's story. 17 yr-olds are looking for advice, evidence & cautionary tales, and the experience of others. That's why they ask the questions they ask. One, we can each give our own answer.
EDIT, I just noticed you are not phylos, but the gist of the comment still applies..
What about my friend who went to the hospital with 3 times the legal limit and docs said he should be dead already? I am not advocating this behaviour, but you have to realise some people can do exactly what you suggest and not even mumble or stumble.
A person who is allergic to alcohol needs only a bit to die, a true alcoholic whose body chemistry converts alcohol into a heroin-like substance doesnt even get sick.
You just have your curlies in a bunch because you have personal loss, many of them it seems, because of this thing called alcohol. You need to get over that and work on yourself before you alienate everyone around you. I watched my father die from a heart attack right in my face, you dont see me going around telling people to stop eating chips or french fries.
totally healthy people get cancer and die, while total abusers of their bodies can live long lives, you yourself even said the docs dont know why some people get liver disease and some dont from performing the same activities. Perhaps these alcohol related deaths didnt have anything to do with alcohol at all and everything to do with faulty DNA giving them an inherant weakness which natural selection has taken care of.
Also you judged this guy too, mr "dont judge others"
I am a sober alcohol and cocaine abuser for 30 years. Nice try
