ALCOHOL IS WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE WORLD. There I said it, I truly believe that because of all the past experiences I've had in the past, like my dad he was an alcoholic, every time he got a huge amount of money he would just waste it on alcohol and start yelling at my mom and swearing at her while she was at work.

Then one day I got tired of it and I stole his wallet then he started to choke me then the police came over to our house and asked a bunch of questions, and one was if he physically attacked me and I said no because I didn't want him to go to jail. My parents are still together because if they split we would get extremely poor, and plus they don't fight anymore.

Another one is that this really nice girl at my middle school last year (now I'm in high school) and she started to hang out with a person who drank A LOT and she started to drink and smoke and stuff like that. One day they absolutely got wasted and she passed out and they were on webcam and the other girl started to undress her in front of the cam. After that the girl that got undressed decided to never hang with her again.

If it wasn't for alcohol we would still have John Bonham, Bon Scott and many other great musicians. I don't drink alcohol, if I did I would probably be an alcoholic.

I would make a few jokes but I'm feeling really crappy emotionally, please don't flame me too much.

I don't think it's what's wrong with the world as a whole, but it's definitely no help. Alchoholism sucks.

Alchohol, drugs, religion. These are all problems. I don't partake in any of them. But I know I can't stop others, so whatever.
#5
The world would still be shitty without alcohol, but yeah, significantly less for many people.

TL;DR
Alcohol is not what's wrong its the morons who show no self-responsibility and drink too much, possibly becoming addicted.
#8
i disagree.


alcohol is perfectly fine in moderation.


just because some people are incapable of being responsible with their alcohol consumption doesn't mean it is causing all the problems in the world.

Every one has their own opinion man. And too a certain extent, alcohol is definitely something bad. But like a lot of things, at least for me, if you do it with moderation, only good times come. I personally love kicking back with buddies drinking beer, or partying. I drink to have fun with friends, and just kick back. It's when people use it for other reasons and become dependent on it, that it becomes a problem. And I hope you and your parents are doing fine.

side note: my archaeology professor was telling us how Henry Morgan would buy several gallons of wine when he returned to Port Royal after raids and such. he would proceed to take the wine into the street and make people stop and drink with him. if they refused, he would shoot at them.




how awesome is that?

If you eliminated alcohol from the past, nothing would be the same. Alcohol isn't the problem, it's people.
The root of all evil is man. Not money, not alcohol, not religion. All of these stem from man, as does the concept of good and evil in and of itself.

i dont have a problem with people drinking, but ive stopped because i cant help but get trashed everytime i drink
#28
It is a problem, just like all the other world problems, but what are you going to do about it. This is why I can't stand straight edge kids (which I am not calling you, i am just using them as an example) who always talk about bringing prohibition back. There is no way. If you are going to bring prohibition back you might as well welcome back the Sicilian Mafia and congratulate MS13 on their new found revenue. Prohibition would be disastrous, just as it is with illegal drugs. All making something illegal does is drive it to the black market, it doesn't prevent shit. Alcohol is a problem at times, but there is really nothing you, me, or anybody else can do about it.

Really? You mean that if alcohol existed by itself, without people, no one would get drunk?
What insight!!!

people are whats wrong with the world

people are idiots and everyones just in it for themselves in the long run. the government makes laws against murder but there are always wars, if people could learn to just leave everyone else alone to do their thing the world would be a much better place.

it comes down to this: ignorance and bad judgment are what's wrong the world...this applies to pretty much everything, including alcohol

Alcohol is causing global warming? Alcohol is causing the global recession? Alcohol is the reason the middle east is a mess? Alcohol causes AIDs?

No, alcohol is far from the cause of the wrongs in the world.

When someone gets in a car accident, do you blame the car, or the driver?

When someone shoots someone, do you blame the gun, or the person using the gun?

It's not alcohol, friend, it's the person using it.

Because alcohol is responsible for terrorists, murderers, slavery, disease, religion, George Bush, 9/11, Hurricane Katrina, World War II, gay marriage, Iraq, Pearl Harbor, the South, racism, Paris Hilton, prom night dumpster babies, France, sugar-free ice cream, the GOP, Carlos Mencia...

Sorry, but a couple of rockers dying and a girl being naked on the internet aren't really "worldly problems." But, you know, way to completely blow insignificant shit out of proportion.

You're definitely wrong. Just because you happened to have had experience with some that don't handle alcohol well, doesn't mean you can say that it's universally bad. A lot of people handle alcohol well and it in fact helps them become more social or dynamic. A few people who never would have become what they were without alcohol include John Bonham, Bon Scott, Jim Morrison. But, if you only focus on the negative, of course you're only going to see the negative.

I on the other hand believe that alcohol is a positive factor when used responsibly. It helps break down mental blocks for some people, allowing them better social interactions, relief of pain, etc. It's not the alcohol that's the problem, it's the user, much like with all "evils" of the world. It's like money, in the right hands it could do the world plenty of good, in the wrong hands, it can be used for negative things.

Everyone seems to blame the gun.
I agree with you though.

Human nature.

Greed, curiosity, and emotion. These are the things that bring the bad, and the good, to the world. To eliminate the bad would eliminate the the good with it.

You cannot stop evil, just slow it down.
