    YUMM! LETS LOVE ALCOHOL! LOOK AT ALL OF THE ADVANTAGES!

    Features
    People tend to look at alcohol in an acceptable fashion but the fact is that alcohol is a drug albeit a legal drug. It is an addictive drug that people use and abuse every day. People consume alcohol for various reasons, such as to relieve stress, escape from problems or to fit in at social situations. Teenagers may start drinking due to peer pressure. Others drink because they are addicted.
    Function
    Alcohol increases the risk of various health conditions, such as heart and liver disease. Alcohol works directly on the central nervous system, impairing brain function. Over time, excessive alcohol consumption can destroy brain cells, resulting in various degrees of brain damage.
    Effects
    Alcohol affects the way people behave. For instance, some people become more violent. This can lead to an increase in crime. People experience a decrease in mental alertness when drinking alcohol and may make poor decisions. Alcohol dulls the senses and alters one's perception of situations and surroundings. Alcohol also affects memory.
    Considerations
    Alcohol often causes people to shed their inhibitions. This can lead to more promiscuous behavior. People may have multiple sex partners, which can lead to an increased risk of sexually transmitted diseases. Women who become pregnant can transmit diseases to their unborn children. Women who drink alcohol when pregnant may have babies born with birth defects due to fetal alcohol syndrome.
    Significance
    People who drink alcohol and drive risk their own lives and the lives of other people. People who drive under the influence of alcohol are not capable of driving with their full mental and physical faculties intact. Alcohol impairs coordination, motor skills and judgment. A person who has consumed even a small amount of alcohol will have slower reflexes and reaction time than one who has not consumed any alcohol. Many lives are lost each year due to drunk drivers.
    Potential
    People often suffer physical injuries after consuming too much alcohol. The decrease in coordination and mental alertness can cause staggering, swaying and double vision, which may lead to falls and other injuries. Loss of consciousness can lead to head injuries and other serious conditions. Loss of consciousness due to excessive alcohol consumption may also occur when a person is driving, which ultimately leads to an accident.
    Warning
    Alcohol can cause problems in a person's family life and work situation. People who suffer from alcoholism may have difficulty retaining a job. Friendships and romantic relationships can suffer due to excessive drinking. Family relationships can become strained. Children of alcoholic parents often suffer from low self-esteem and emotional disorders such as anxiety.


    Aww, do you still want to drink? even against your own intuiton? Why - is that logical? It's as if something, some enemy you can't see, is instigating you to drink alcohol

    Pretty much EVERYTHING you've said (*cough* quoted *cough*) only applies to excessive and irresponsible drinking. The majority of drinkers don't get hammered every night, don't have memory loss, don't become violent, don't puke up over the floor at 3am, don't drive while drunk, and don't cause harm to others and mostly don't cause harm to themselves.

    Don't put me in the same boat as this chap:

    So people know that alcohol is more dangerous than most other drugs yet still binge drink?

    The fact is, most people don't know this, and if they do they certainly don't actually acknowledge it. If they did, drinking alcohol would be more taboo then smoking weed.

    Okay I said the same thing before I tried alcohol and it just gives people that extra confidence. I am not the kind of person to go out every week end just to get drunk but I do like to have a drink here and there when you and your friends are all drunk together it just gives you something to talk about the next day!

    Weed is a better drug to be addicted to (I mean weed, not skunk (although that's probably better as well). I look at alcohol like I look at MDMA. It should be taken once a month tops. However, society will dictate that you must drink it more regularly.
