How many times do people try to bounce a ping pong ball onto a syringe and then take that shot, or get held upside down and see how long they can take a hit, or race to see who can snort a line the fastest? Drinking is fun. It is infinitely more socially accepted than any drug, including pot or pills. It is addictive. It kills what more than all the other drugs combined (granted bc of easier access) on a yearly basis?
Thats not to say alcohol is bad or worse than other drugs. Or that other drugs should be legalized, though its a decent opening argument. But, seriously, people treat alcohol like it is not a drug. Or that, at a minimum, its use is somehow less dangerous than all these other drugs. And sure. One beer is exponentially safer than one syringe full of heroin to the neck. But no one drinks one beer.
I disagree, I do drink one beer. I drink almost every day, it's part of my diet basically. Usually more than one, but sometimes only one.
Right, you're making my point. You've drank thousands, probably tens of thousands, of beers. Not just one. When you first started drinking, making that choice back in your teens I'm guessing, the question regarding safety wasn't one beer.
Of course, now there are ample studies saying a drink or two a day is fine, even healthy, but, again, back when you started drinking, no one knew that. Possibly because multi-billion dollar liquor corporations weren't funding studies.
Anyway, back to the point, people really treat alcohol different than any narcotic, prescription drug, or recreational drug, imo.
