    Apart from religion (and I am not religious anyway)... But, speaking from a medical point of view, alcohol (intoxicants) are very bad for your health.

    It creates holes in your brain, that prevent blood from reaching parts of it, and it causes the brain to shrink, and the damage nerves to deform (and become malformed).

    Also, causing the pancreas to lose its digestive function, which in turn causes pain (from eating) due to infections.

    The liver also becomes 'fatty' (more like, fibrosis) and could lead to failure.

    There was a young woman in her twenties (I saw in a video), that lost her liver due to over drinking. As I first saw her, I thought she was pregnant! But, apparently, it was due to the liver not being able to do its functioning. Leading to fluid accumulating which gives her such appearance. And she must go to the hospital every few weeks, to relieve herself from this fluid. She can accumulate up to 23 liters at once!

    Stay away from alcohol, kids. I’m not speaking from a religions viewpoint as I said before, just an advice, unless you want a brain full of holes, a pain while eating and a belly like that of pregnant women, or a dysfunctional liver.

    (A picture of how the woman looks, should be here).

    Good luck!

    Can't have holes in your brain if you don't have a brain to begin with.

    Here’s the full episode. Subtitled, annotated and translated.

    If you’re "surprised" as to, why this person is speaking Arabic, then I’ll explain. In sum, this is a ten year old program, where this person travels to other countries, and visits them (e.g., the US or Japan) and shows their culture, folklore and/or chronicled history.

    This episode is about alcohol, speaks from a medical viewpoint, and shows the overall history (of it) in the US and UK.

    And here’s another one for you.

    I'm living proof that alcohol is bad news.Booze has caused me nothing but misery and pain.
    I am what's classed as a high functioning alcoholic, meaning I can hold down jobs of high responsibility, whereas many people cease to function performing the simplest of daily tasks through alcoholism.
    I am also an alcoholic that binges. I can go through 3 full bottles of vodka a day for 3-4 days then abstain for months, rinse and repeat.
    I honestly don't know how I'm still alive after the punishment I've put my body through.
    Cirrhosis of the liver is a prolific effect of alcohol, it causes your liver to become perforated and shrink, your body becomes full of poison, you die... it's not called a liver for no reason.
    Booze is only legal for one reason... tax dollars.
    Some people never have a problem with alcohol, but as they say, "when it cost's you more than money, you have a problem"
    I truly hope that none of you ever have to find out how bad this shit is the hard way.

    I appreciate a good read, you could say the same about smoking... It's expensive, addicting and yet people still do it? Speechless as to how people feel good about themselves doing such harm by taking that extra step. We can enjoy the good moments don't get me wrong and I know it effects everyone differently, yet take into consideration how badly it fucks you up in the long run.
