    You don't need alcohol to have a good time on a night out. I drink very little (never had hangovers or anything) and would get told off at predrinks because to them it made me look antisocial (if I wasn't drinking or didn't have a drink in my hand), yet I was talking to most people, starting conversations with new people and having a laugh. I would say that 'good time' sensation is short lived if you wake up with a splitting headache, and look at how much you spent and the Facebook pictures the following morning.

    He has a damaged cerebellum after only moderate drinking? That is alarming news.

    Yes it is.

    No-one said anything about excessive alcohol. The claim was simply that "Alcohol damages the brain".

    Excessive food consumption makes you morbidly obese. But the statement "food makes you morbidly obese" is clearly ridiculous.

    The same principle applies here. The statement "alcohol damages the brain" is entirely erroneous. Millions of people drink alcohol their entire lives without any deleterious effect on their brain whatsoever.

    You've lost the argument. Go troll elsewhere.

    Alcohol is a psychoactive drug. It damages the brain and can actually make people quite ill.

    Well... I don't wish to argue, but I think if you actually did some research you would find all those things are myths.
    Not myths, simple as that.

    All you need for a good time is friends, which hallucinogens can provide you with.

    Then don't? It's not about having to take something to have a good time, that's not what I'm saying.

    Drugs command a lot of respect. I don't take them every weekend or every night out. There are certain situations where they can be safely enjoyed and are fun. It's all about mood enhancement.

    My priorities are having a healthy body/state of mind, so it's not something I regularly delve in. I enjoy LSD and occasionally I'll have some exceptionally strong weed which is nice, or hash. I don't buy into stoner culture or LSD hippie BS. It's just nice, enjoyable and for me, safe.

    What I find hypocritical is people who are like "I would never touch drugs, it's disgusting and vile and I have no interest in it" but end up hitting Malia for 2 weeks battered off their faces on alcohol - a drug that supposedly is okay because it's 'social' and 'legal'.
    there is one huge problem with illegal drugs : you never know what exactly is in the dose you are absorbing

    if you are unlucky, you will get dodgy components/overdoses. People have died because of this. Trusting your local pusher blindly seems a very risky strategy.

    If you want to continue the parallel with alcohol, it's like getting drunk on moonshine. You may end up blind (or even worse).

    No, you don't. I care too much about my renal organ to damage it on just having a 'good time'.

    Well unless you grow your own of course and it can still be the case with alcohol, there were a spate of methanol poisonings a couple of years ago:

    I think if your a naturally outgoing and extroverted person, you can get along fine without alcohol, but for me I like drinking because you let yourself go a bit more, speak to people you wouldn't normally, dance like an idiot, have a laugh with your mates over anything and it just generally improves the evening
